In most cases these central RSE groups support researchers operating anywhere in the university. Some universities also have domain-specific RSE groups that specialise in providing support to academics in a particular research area (e.g. environmental sciences, health sciences or physics).
To discuss your RSE needs and to find out how support from research software engineers could help improve the research that you and your colleagues undertake please contact the lead RSE at your institution using the links below.
Regardless of the structure of your RSE department one thing is certain; the skills RSEs have, coupled to the ever-growing power of high performance and high throughput computing (HPC and HTC), has the potential to enable researchers to analyse significantly more data, much more quickly and with major improvements in accuracy. Speaking and working with RSEs will offer you and your team new insight in to software tools.
