  • Contribute discrete components of a larger project under the general direction of a senior or principal researcher
  • Prepare complete documentation of research activities for reference purposes, including following applicable data management protocols;
  • Analyze, interpret, and document research findings for review;
  • Compare actual and expected results and suggest solutions to correct the deviations;
  • Evaluate existing research or modeling techniques and recommend improvements to ensure quality and productivity;
  • Assist in the preparation of proposals and reports;
  • Assist in teaching classes;
  • Develop new features in the Environ library and in its Python refactoring, with a focus on its coupling with other quantum and classical embedding approaches;
  • Apply the developed tools in the fields of materials design for (photo-)electrochemistry, (photo-) electrocatalysis, and interface binding of organic molecules;
  • Provide regular dissemination of the research results through scientific publications and oral presentations in national meetings;
  • Supervision of PhD, masters, and undergraduate students;
  • Contribute to the organization of workshops, hackathons, and tutorials;
  • Collaboration with other national and international developers.
What are you going to do?

You are expected to:

  • do original research under the direction of one of Research Group Leaders;
