You can post a vacancy here for any role which involves a significant element of writing software for research, or supports the role of RSEs.
It is not a requirement that your job title is listed as “Research Software Engineer” however you should consider the advantages of doing so. I.e.:
- You will support the advocacy of the RSE role
- The job will have a clear intent that the position is about developing research software not necessarily undertaking novel research (more appropriate for a research associate).
- The job will be naturally signposted to our welcoming and growing RSE community
Of course, many job roles and titles blur the boundary of being an RSE but consider our simple check list to see if the candidate is likely to self-identify as a Research Software Engineer given the expectations of the job you are advertising.
If your job involves supporting RSEs in their role or is otherwise related to RSE without directly involving writing software for research, it will be published under ‘Supporting RSE’.
You can add the details yourself using this form and it will go to a member of our web team for approval.
