Support for researchers
When working with code it’s often useful to get another perspective and our Research Software Engineers (RSEs) can provide that.
If you, for example:
- are not sure how to tackle a problem;
- aren’t sure why your software is behaving in a particular way;
- want to rework something to make it faster or easier to maintain, but aren’t sure how; or
- are having trouble with Git, Docker or some other tool
then please get in touch.
Our RSEs are more familiar with some technologies than others, but we would always hope to be able to provide some assistance and at least help direct you towards a solution.
Go ahead and book an appointment with one of us:
|Paddy McCann||Tuesday afternoons||
|Swithun Crowe||Wednesday afternoons||
|Mary Woodcock Kroble||Thursday afternoons||
If you’re not sure who to talk to, or can’t find a suitable appointment, please email [email protected].
If you have any questions about research software, be it a general query or in relation to the specifics at the University of St Andrews, please get in touch by emailing [email protected].
We work with researchers and Organisational and Staff Development Services to deliver regular Software Carpentry workshops, “teaching researchers the computing skills they need to get more done in less time and with less pain”. The 2-day workshops are aimed at beginners, covering the Unix Shell, Version Control with Git and Programming in Python or R. Registration for workshops is via the Personal Development Management System.
We also provide other training where there is sufficient demand among researchers, or as part of our work on individual research projects.
