A researcher can request help with any aspect of using the range of BEAR compute services.
Example tasks might include debugging or profiling research software, or advising how to optimise batch compute jobs.
When a researcher has issues running third party software then BEAR Software RSEs can work with the researcher to find a solution.
A researcher may have existing sequential code and we can offer advice on the possible methods for parallelisation (to multi-core, multi-node, or GPU systems), which will enable better utilisation of the computing resources available to the researcher.
BEAR Software RSEs can advise researchers on how to apply for access to, and facilitate the use of, further computing resources available at the regional (HPC Midlands+), national (ARCHER), and international level (Prace).
BEAR Software RSEs may seek to initiate conversations with researchers if we see an opportunity to find out more about interesting techniques or to get more out of the computing resources.
