Open to: candidates of any nationalities
Remunerationamount of 2,000 USD monthly and a travel fund


The state University of Campinas is looking for candidates interested in the research project entitled “Multi-scale Modelling of Hydrogen Storage in Nanoscrolls”. The position is at the Institute of Physics of the State University of Campinas (Brazil), under the supervision of Prof. Douglas S. Galvão
The main goal is to develop a theoretical model to the process of hydrogen storage in nanoscrolls of different materials. Due to their large contact area and open edges, nanoscrolls can be considered better candidates than conventional nanotubes


  • They are looking for candidates with:
  • Initiative, independence and interested in interdisciplinary research;
  • Excellent academic records;
  • Fluent in English;
