The doctoral candidates who successfully finish the program:
- will be leaders in the use and development of computational technologies in molecular sciences, and/or material science. The acquired background makes them researchers who can develop their activity in Academia, in jobs focussed on scientific basic or applied research, or in industry, in those areas, like pharmaceutical industry, petrochemical industry, where modelling or the design of new materials is required.
- will be familiar with the use of HPC facilities or with work in grid-computing environments, and will therefore be able to play an efficient role in the computer industry.
- will be prepared to develop their own lines of research, since our program pays particular attention to the skills related to research management and research supervision.
- should have developed leadership and teaching capacities, since during the last two years of the program they will be involved in the formal supervision of Master students or related early-stage researchers.
- will have multidisciplinary and transferable skills, which will allow them to work competently in software development companies, after a period of adaptation to become familiar with the problems to be addressed.
- could also find employment in companies developing hardware, since after finishing their doctoral studies, they should be familiar with a variety of platforms, and because part of their formation will be focused on the efficient use of operating systems like UNIX and others.
In summary the Doctors who have successfully finished our JDP will do better science and they will bring technological quality to Europe in all fields related to computational science.
An important outcome of our project will be the repository, which will be built up during the development of the programme and which will contain all the technical advances related to the modification or creation of new codes, and/or with the most outstanding results obtained in the applications in the different research areas contemplated in its development.
We also aim at creating an alumni association which would enable the doctors who finish the programme to maintain permanent contact with those in the same or different editions, as well as with doctoral candidates currently working in the programme.
