We have an exciting opportunity for two Senior Research Software Engineers to join the newly established Competency Centre for Cloud Computing and AI/ML, which is part of the University’s Digital Transformation. The aim of the Competency Centre is to provide a centralised expertise on the use of public cloud computing for research applications, particularly in the context of contemporary AI/ML approaches. 

Working across the university you will provide centralised expertise working with researchers with diverse research questions who require access to cloud computing capabilities. This will require significant software engineering experience and also hands-on experience of using public cloud infrastructure at different scales.

You will also lead in the development and delivery of training courses and workshops to other researchers within the University.

To be successful in this role, you will hold a PhD/DPhil with a significant computational component, with post-qualification research experience or equivalent experience in a similar role. You will have a strong track record of the use of public cloud service providers (e.g. GCP, AWS, Azure, Oracle etc.), and have significant experience with one programming language used for research (e.g. Python, C++, C, Matlab, R, Java, Javascript, Fortran, Rust).  It is important that you have excellent communication skills, including the ability to communicate with researchers, write for publication, present research proposals and results, and represent the group at meetings, and be able to work collaboratively and as part of a team.

Applications for this vacancy are to be made online and you will be required to upload a supporting statement and CV as part of your online application. Your supporting statement must explain how you meet each of the selection criteria for the post using examples of your skills and experience.
