US-RSE23 seeking nominations for a Student track Student Co-chair

A message from the US-RSE conference organizers:

Have you heard of the United States Research Software Engineering (US-RSE) Association? Research software engineers (RSEs) use their diverse backgrounds to enable groundbreaking research in domains ranging from physics, to biology, digital humanities, and everything in between. US-RSE is a community-driven effort that brings together RSEs within the US. The first ever US-RSE conference is being held mid-October in Chicago, IL, and we would like your help to make it a great one!

Are you a graduate student who has picked up software development for your research and… liked it? Maybe you are an undergraduate computer science student looking for interesting and unconventional jobs outside typical software engineering roles in industry. We want your input into the Student program for the upcoming US-RSE23 conference. The Student Co-Chair will work alongside the existing Student Chairs to plan and organize the student mentorship offerings at US-RSE23. This is a great opportunity to build visibility within the community, meet other RSEs from across the nation, and a chance to help define the vision for this and future conferences.

We are looking for a self-motivated student who is willing to commit 1-2 hours per week to participate in meetings and/or community calls. The Student Co-Chair will receive priority in application for potential travel assistance. Due to the time commitment, applicants who are selected for the position will be asked to submit a brief statement of support from their current advisor or supervisor indicating their knowledge of participation.


Please complete the below form to nominate someone (or yourself) for consideration of the US-RSE Student Subcommittee Student Co-Chair. Nominations must be received before the end of the day on April 7th.
