Job Opportunities

Vahid M. Harandi is the editor of the Job opportunities section together with team members Florencia Giliberto, Larissa Goli and Ursula Moore. One of our tasks here is to attract more jobs in both academia and industry being posted on the WMS website. We are also interviewing people on “transition to industry” with tips and tricks to a successful transition as this is always a challenging phase for academics. We are also working to create a Networking platform in WMS by "Profiles" module where users can publicly/or within the community display their profiles to both network and communicate for finding jobs. For any enquiries, please feel free to write us on
