In today’s world research requires advanced computing and data management resources
ITS Research Computing is dedicated to supporting the talent and research of UC Riverside’s many highly acclaimed faculty members and outstanding graduate and undergraduate students. We offer powerful onsite and offsite computing resources, support, consulting, and training with the help of our partners.
Depending on the nature of the research you are conducting and the computing resources required, different options below are available to satisfy most needs. Most research computing computation and associated workflows can be served by UCR's High-Performance Computing Center with an outstanding GPU-enabled computing cluster and GPFS high-speed parallel storage. There are many other computing operations and workflows that may be better suited on one of the other resources.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options and get started.

BCOE is home to cutting-edge, high-risk, profoundly creative research. We're invested in internationally recognized engineering research in hundreds of emerging areas focused on solving the world's greatest challenges. Faculty and their research teams collaborate in multidisciplinary research with colleagues at other colleges, campuses, and industry leaders. Learn More:
is home to world-renowned scholars pursuing research that deepens our knowledge of the universe we live in and improves the quality of life for inhabitants of the state, the nation, and the world. Central to this research is educating the students who come to CNAS to learn science, and who leave with an integrated grasp of how they can change the world. These students, and the faculty who teach them, benefit from a structure that is unique among land-grant colleges: CNAS’s 13 departments encompass the life, physical, mathematical, and agricultural sciences. This structure encourages an extraordinary degree of collaboration, reflected in the interdisciplinary research centers and the many cooperatively taught degree programs. Modern science is team-based, and CNAS embodies that principle in everything it teaches and practices.
The College's centers and institutes are hotbeds of interdisciplinary research. Most CNAS faculty members belong to at least one, and their students have the opportunity to work in these flourishing incubators for tomorrow's discoveries. Learn more about our centers and institutes below:

RITL is a subcommittee of the Campus IT Leaders (CITL) committee. Its purpose is to bridge the gap of siloed research support on campus. Allowing for a clear picture of what resources are available to researchers on and off-campus. RITL helps to reduce the duplication of resources, training, and effort and aligns research support allowing collaboration across campus. We informally share information, needs, strategic initiatives, and ideas. We work to increase the accessibility of the research support landscape at UCR.
The RITL mailing list (email@example.com) is used for discussion and research support coordination. RITL meets quarterly via zoom.
