Opportunities for students

If you are interested in joining my research group for a Iniciação Científica, Masters or PhD project, please contact me. I am happy to talk with motivated students.

Some of the available lines of research for students are listed here.

Postdoctoral Jobs

  • Black hole accretion theory and simulations
  • Fermi LAT observations

The open postdoc positions in my group are advertised here.
