We have positions open at all levels, including visiting professors, post-docs, graduate students and undergraduate students. Independent, creative and motivated people (who really enjoy scientific discovery) are welcome to apply. Students looking for graduate or undergraduate research projects are encouraged to contact us to arrange an interview. Candidates for both the M.Sc or Ph.D programs must be admitted as graduate students of either the Institute of Chemistry of the University of São Paulo (IQ-USP) or the Center for Natural and Human Sciences of the Federal University of ABC (CCNH-UFABC). Entrance exams at both institutions are administered every six months (February and July) and can be replaced by the GRE Chemistry test. In our group, the M.Sc takes about 24 months to complete, whereas around 48 months are required to finish a Ph.D. M.Sc students may transfer to Ph.D depending on the project development. Postdocs are welcome to contact us any time of the year. Excellent candidates are encouraged to seek fellowship support and apply.

São Paulo is one of the most important economic centers of Brazil and one of the largest cities in the world. Students and researchers from other countries are welcome to apply and will certainly have a rich cultural and scientific experience here.
