We’re organising a workshop for Research Software Engineers with the Software Sustainability Institute on September 11th in Oxford.
You might not consider yourself a “Research Software Engineer” but the workshop is aimed at anyone who develops software in an academic research context. If any of the following are true you might want to attend:
The workshop will be a chance to network with and learn from people in similar roles, find out what methods and tools other people are using, discuss ways to improve the long term maintenance and sustainability of academic software, reproducibility of research and academic career recognition of the work that goes into software dev.

Announcing our new one year, full time master’s programme, MSc Genes, Environment and Development, taught at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry (SGDP) Centre at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London.
This is a unique, brand new course starting in September 2013, which will provide an unrivalled learning opportunity from internationally renowned researchers in a range of behavioural genetics topics and research methods relevant to psychology and psychiatry.
This innovative MSc programme offers specialised interdisciplinary graduate training in social, genetic (both quantitative and molecular), epigenetic, developmental and cognitive approaches to psychiatry and psychology. It also provides a thorough practical training in a range of research methods and their application.
The programme equips you with the appropriate training for further full‐time study; our graduates make strong candidates for PhDs, or careers in academic, clinical or pharmaceutical organisations or in the field of science communication. Our student make‐up is diverse; you may come to us with a background in social science, psychology, psychiatry, biology, mathematics and other degrees.
