To support this there are many benefits including £2000 GBP to support education, outreach, and implementation of research solutions and 12 months of Microsoft Azure credits.

Applicants may have one or more of the following roles:

  • A research software engineer who supports the work of researchers;
  • A researcher who uses software;
  • A developer who writes tools for researchers;
  • In a leadership role in projects or organisations that make heavy use of software, compute, and data services.
