The US Research Software Engineer Association

The USRSE is a member driven non-profit entity that represents the interests of research software engineers in the US.

About


The US Research Software Engineer Association (US-RSE) is an independent, non-profit, member driven organization that works to advance the career needs of past, present and future  research software engineers in the United States. Its goals include supporting current RSEs through sharing skills, knowledge and education and promoting RSE career opportunities across society as broadly and diversely as possible. 

Our membership is open to anyone involved in research software engineering, interested in research software engineering careers, supportive of the research software engineering community or simply interested in supporting our mission. We don't have any limits on who that might be and are fully open to anyone joining. We have an active diversity, equity and inclusion working group that focusses on making sure anyone from any background has the opportunity to become part of the research software engineering profession.

The research software engineering field is committed to improving research software infrastructure that underpins all manner of important societally beneficial activities. The US-RSE organization is about supporting the people that make that infrastructure possible and that sustain it. Without those people the software infrastructure falls apart. Research software is used in everything from bridge design to improving crop yields to medicine to climate change adaptation to equitable finance and more.
