How can an RSE Help?

Here you can find support for:

  • Scaling of an algorithm to run on HPC and/or cloud services
  • Initial development of a code repository, including but not limited to creating packages, testing, containerization, documentation, and data provenance (e.g., DOIs).
  • Maintainer responsibility of a code repository, including responding to issues and addressing questions and feature requests for the continued lifecycle of the software

Did you know that...

A research software engineer can do much more than work on research software. RSEs have domain knowledge, and can write manuscripts alongside software, or content for a Methods section for the work you are conducting.

  • Templates for GitHub actions, Google Cloud, and documentation that are free for you to use.
  • RSE Services on the Stanford University IT pages
  • Service Examples for software reproducibility, maintenance, and scaling for high performance computing

See the About page for more details. If you have a question or would like to request support, please Open an issue.
