Do you like coding, research, and the academic environment, but want slightly more emphasis and community around the software side? Join the Aalto RSE community. You can join whatever your current position is, you don’t need to be hired as a research software engineer. There are no requirements, just networking and development. This is also a “Triton powerusers group”.
RSEs have been an essential part of science for ages, but are hardly ever recognised. We have many here at Aalto. Aalto SciComp is trying to make a community of these people. By taking part, you can:
Network with others in similar situations and discover career opportunities.
Share knowledge among ourselves (maybe have relevant training, too).
Take part in developing our services - basically, be a voice of the users.
More directly help the community by, for example, directly updating this site, helping to develop services, or teaching with us.
To join the community, see the general SciComp community page. You may want to join the Aalto RSE community mailing list, which is a general-purpose list which anyone may post to, including possibly internal job advertisements or other random discussion. Also, you should take part in the Nordic-RSE Finland chats - there is a strong Aalto presence there, and we use that as our Aalto chat time, too.
