Science Journalism Internship

The São Paulo Research and Analysis Center (SPRACE) is opening a position of Science Journalist Internship for an outstanding professional to work together with our team of researchers in High Energy Physics (HEP), Computer Science and Engineering.

The SPRACE group works in association with the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Collaboration of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) from CERN where it is engaged in the physics analysis and in the R&D in instrumentation for the upgrade of the CMS detector. The SPRACE implemented and operates a computational structure (Tier-2) of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) and we were responsible for the creation of GridUnesp which provides high performance processing to more than 100 research groups from different areas. SPRACE has collaborations with several universities and international research centers such as the University of Pisa, Edinburgh, Southampton, Fermilab, and CERN.

We have a strong partnership with leading international companies like Intel and Huawei. Our joint projects include the modernisation of HEP codes and the development of software-defined network (SDN) solutions.

SPRACE has a strong outreach program which includes the distribution of 25,000 posters on HEP to all Brazilian High Schools, the development of the SPRACE Game and the promotion of the Masterclass in Particle Physics annual event.

Through the involvement in our projects the intern will have the opportunity to get acquainted with the scientific organisation of large international collaborations. She/he will be able to write press releases and articles on scientific subjects with the support of experienced researchers and will be able to practice how to make science more attractive to the general public.

Requirements

The intern must have a Master degree in journalism or in technical fields (physical, engineering, or computer science)

Applicants are expected to

  • Have some previous experience in written science communication in English and Portuguese;
  • Have good communication skills to transmit the scientific concepts to the public;
  • Work under time pressure and deliver to agreed deadlines and standards;
  • Work both on your own initiative and as part of a team.

A knowledge of physics that allows to understand scientific papers would be a major asset.

Appointment Details

These appointments are for 6 (six) months and could be extended, depending on the performance of the interim during the initial period.

The income will correspond to the JC-III fellowship of the Programa Jornalismo Científico (R$ 3.010,80)

SPRACE is committed to the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action. Applications from any sexual orientation and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply.

How to apply

Candidates must send an application letter and a résumé of work experience to cms@sprace.org.br. A recommendation letter and samples of your previous work is highly desirable.

Deadline for application

The applications will be reviewed until the position is filled (open until filled). Shortlisted candidates must be available for an interview where we expect a short presentation on the previous achievements and on the proposed plan of activities.

Senior Data Scientist

NCC/Unesp is the first Intel Modern Code Partner in Latin America (https://software.intel.com/en-us/modern-code/live-workshops). Such partnership has been created to disseminate knowledge about High Performance Computing and Data Science techniques to exploit Intel multi/many-core architectures. This pioneer cooperation has led to a new joint project: a Center of Excellence in Machine Learning. The goal of the center is to develop research, perform consultations and deliver training sessions in this field with Intel, CERN and Caltech as partners. For most of our activities we will be developing Machine Learning based solutions to real world problems related (but no restricted) to High-Energy Physics.
