The software is dedicated to training and is being used by hundreds of students.

Admission Requirements:

The candidate should have a B.Sc. degree (“Licenciatura”) in computer science, or similar, and computational mathematical knowledge is a preferential factor. We expect the candidate to have a strong background on programming in Python and preferably on web services. The following abilities will be valued: teamwork skills, initiative, critical thinking and autonomy.
