Advanced computing support for researchers

Posted on 6 October 2016

From October 2016, our newly-created Research Computing Support Centre offers support on advanced computing topics for research postgraduates and staff. Appointments are now open for booking.

These appointments are part of the broader support that we offer to enable research computing in all areas.

The Research Computing Support Centre provides 15 minute consultation appointments to discuss, and hopefully resolve, your query. If we can't find a solution at the first appointment, we'll arrange for you to access further assistance with an appropriate member of IT Services staff.

We offer advice on:

  • Selection of suitable software packages for your research
  • Assistance with programming and use of research software packages
  • Use of High Performance Computing facilities

When you make your appointment it would be helpful if you could provide as much information as possible about:

  • The research area of your work
  • Details of the problem you are trying to solve
  • Any steps you have taken towards solving the problem

The Research Computing Support Centre provides support for research postgraduates and members of staff on advanced computing topics. More general IT support, for all students and staff, is provided via the Library and IT Help Desk.
