About the Research Software Developers Network

Is part of your role developing software or electronic data for research, in any academic discipline? Would you like to meet others like you, share experiences, and learn from each other? Would you like help finding similar roles when your current contract ends? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then the RSDN is for you.

Or are you a researcher or manager who needs help with software development for a project? Would you like somewhere to go for informal expert advice? Do you struggle to recruit people with the skills you need? Would you like access to a pool of talented individuals already employed by the University? If so, then the RSDN can help you.

We welcome involvement from all interested in these topics, in all parts of the University, whether you are a graduate student, or academic or support staff. Register to get the most out of this site and join the network.


New project aims to lay groundwork for reproducible research culture at Oxford

Reproducible Research Oxford is a project based at the University of Oxford. The project aims to lay the groundwork for a culture of research reproducibility at Oxford, focusing on training in the effective use of computational tools in research. These tools are widely used in some disciplines, and they can enable researchers to easily track the process leading from data to results, so that it is fully reproducible. However, researchers often lack the opportunities, incentives and confidence to make best use of these tools.

Many-Core Seminars slides available online

CUDA developers within the university may be interested in coming along to our Many-core Computing seminars which are usually held on Wednesday lunchtimes at the Oxford e-Research Centre.  Presentations from previous seminars are available here, and details of future seminars will be advertised here.
