NWU Research Conversation series: Research Software Engineers
Our guest speaker is Dr James Hetherington from the University College of London in the UK where the Research Software Engineering Association was formed. James leads Research Software Development at UCL and visited South Africa to teach a Software Carpentry workshop in conjunction with eResearch Africa 2014. He will talk about the career path for Research Software Engineers and their impact on the research quality and university rankings. Dr Aleksandra Pawlik from the New Zealand eScience Infrastructure will join the discussion to talk about the upcoming RSE AGM and the possibility to run a remote meeting site at NWU.
After the talk we want to hear back from you how your role with the university could align with RSE and what benefits you could gain aligning with this international community.
