Research Software Engineer (RSE) Knowledge Integration Landscape Review

The RSE Knowledge Integration Landscape Review provides an overview of the RSE community landscape within the UK today.  The document describes the concept of the Research Software Engineer role and discusses:  

  • the skills required by RSEs in HPC  
  • the future training needs of RSEs 
  • challenges faced in developing these skills and growing the number of RSEs in the UK with a specific focus on HPC 
  • the importance of establishing a career path for RSEs that does not rely on the conventional academic metrics 

The Landscape Review was commissioned to contribute towards meeting the aims of the RSE Knowledge Integration theme in the programme. The membership of the Editorial Board comprised partners and funded groups within the programme.
