  • Hey prospective PhD student here, are there any current PhD students... here? I've got a few questions, esp. if you are in the LCFS group :) See More
  • Has any of you considered working in the Space industry? It is not j...ust for rocket scientists :) The software that you will be producing could be controlling satellites or processing data from Mars. Also have you yet considered career in Testing? I started mine with CGI and we are looking for more people for various jobs all the time. Space for CGI is mainly focused in Darmstadt, Germany (all work is in English) or Leatherhead, but given the crazy Brexit coming up maybe Germany is an option you will consider. After graduating from the University of Edinburgh I came here in Darmstadt for a year or two and ended up moving here permanently. If this sounds interesting please apply on the website or just send me your CV. We are also looking for interns. See More
  • There are still places for the ReactJS workshop on Wednesday. We can...'t wait to see the material that Josh Hargreaves got for you! See More
