We are looking for a highly motivated Research Software Engineer to further develop one of the core pieces of software used within the 2020 Science programme, Chaste. Chaste (Cancer, Heart and Soft Tissue Environment) is a multiscale, multiphysics simulation framework consisting of object oriented C++ libraries (www.cs.ox.ac.uk/chaste). One of the main obstacles to wider uptake of Chaste with users, both academic and industrial, is the difficulty of getting started. With many and varied dependencies, the installation process can be challenging. The technical infrastructure managing the project also makes it difficult for external users/developers to contribute back. The postholder will work to remove these barriers to adoption.
