European Joint Doctorate on Theoretical Chemistry and Chemistry Modelling (ITN-EJD-TCCM). The objective of the doctorate is to prepare authentic research leaders, who should not only be able to develop and use multidisciplinary computational techniques (methods and software), but also solid communication skills.
Jaime de Juan-Sanz holds an M.Sc. in Molecular Biomedicine from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and a Ph.D. in Molecular Neurobiology obtained at Centro de Biología Molecular “Severo Ochoa” (CBMSO). He is currently a postdoctoral associate at Weill Cornell Medical College (Cornell University) in New York City where he is investigating the molecular basis of synaptic transmission, studying biophysical aspects of synaptic biology. He is also interested in encouraging open science in our society promoting open access research and science outreach.
Fran Hernández Heras graduated in physics and mathematics at the University of Valladolid. He then completed a PhD in Zoology in the University of Cambridge, as a member of Trinity College. Currently, he does research on collective behaviour in the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown, Lisbon.
Pablo Ortiz graduated in Pharmacy from the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and received an MSc in Synthetic and Industrial Chemistry from the same university. He then moved to the Netherlands where he received a PhD in Synthetic Organic Chemistry from the University of Groningen. He is currently biopolymer and bioaromatics researcher at the Belgium Institute for Technological Research (Vito)
Graduated in Physics by the University of Oviedo (Spain) and currently a PhD student at the Department of Theoretical Physics of the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) and a member of the Institute of Theoretical Physics of the Spanish Research Council (IFT, UAM-CSIC). He works in the area of Quantum Field Theories in curved space-times and General Relativity, currently studying the gravitational effect of the Higgs field in the context of the Dark Energy problem.
PhD in chemistry (1986 University of Warsaw, Poland). More than 30 years of research experience in ETH Zürich (Switzerland), University of Uppsala (Sweden), University of Grenoble (France), Jackson State University (USA), Fukuoka University (Japan), UPMC Univ Paris (France). He joined the Faculty of Chemistry at the UPV-EHU and Donostia International Physics Center as Ikerbasque Research Professor in 2009. His main interests are intermolecular interactions and crystal structures. Member of the editorial boards of Journal of Physical Organic Chemistry and Computational & Theoretical Chemistry.
Currently he is assistant professor at the Department of Engineering of the University of Almería. Until 2012 he taught as a Lecturer at the University of Málaga (Spain), where he also received the European PhD and the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering in 2009 and 2005, respectively. His research interests include mobile robotics, estimation theory and computer vision.
Víctor completed his degree on physics at Universidad de Valencia in 2013, and is currently finishing his master studies. He is also collaborating with the NEXT experiment, an experiment to test the nature of the neutrino. As a side project he is starting a career in science divulgation.
