Research Computing

The USD Research Computing Group (USDRCG) manages advanced digital resources that accelerate computational and data-driven research and scholarship. These resources include supercomputing systems, advanced data platforms, and high-speed research networks. These resources, combined with the expertise and facilitation to make them work, are referred to collectively as Cyberinfrastructure

The Research Computing Group's goals are to:

  1. Reduce the time to discovery,
  2. Increase the number of cyberinfrastructure practitioners at USD, and
  3. Increase USD's competitiveness for research funding.

The Research Computing Group can help with

  1. Getting access to campus supercomputing and data systems
  2. Getting access to national supercomputing and data systems through XSEDE
  3. Providing cyberinfrastructure-related “Facilities, Equipment, and Other Resources” documentation for NSF proposals, and similar documentation for NIH, DOE, and other proposals
  4. Assisting with Data Management plans for NSF proposals or Data Sharing Plans for NIH proposals involving electronic data
  5. Assisting with Cyberinfrastructure Plans or similar documents for grant proposals
