As part of Orvium you will be required on one hand, to deeply understand the state of art of Scientific Dissemination, how the peer-review process works, how the impact-factor is measured for a scientific journal, what are the implications for researchers to publish their work in one journal or another, etc. On the other hand, you will also interact with blockchain technologies like Ethereum and Smart Contracts. Although an extensive experience in these domains is not required at the beginning, we expect the candidate to show some enthusiasm on them.
