The group offers different types of training. We participate in the Master and PhD programs of the University of the Basque Country with several thesis completed in the past as weel as in other National and European Master porgrams. On November 2010 a Erasmus Bilateral Agreement was signed with Università degli Studi di Catania. In addition, members of the group regularly give lectures at different schools for PhD students. We also organize the series of Benasque Schools on TDDFT.
We participate in the Research Training Group Quantum Mechanical Materials Modelling: RTG-QM3.
Angel has given the following IMPRS focus course:Time-dependent density-functional theory (TDDFT) and Many-Body Techniques (MBT).Seminar Room II, CFEL.From Monday 11/07/2016 to Wednesday 13/07/2016,from 09:00 to 12:30
Co-coordination of doctorate and master courses
- Leibniz graduate school "Dynamics in New Light" (DinL). Duration: 3 years. Start is planned for 1st of June 2011 Material properties, phase transitions, and chemical modifications are ruled by elementary physical processes that take place within a few femtoseconds. These ultrafast timescales are only accessible using optical techniques and are currently being pushed to the X-ray regime. This school will improve education of young scientists in this rapidly developing field of ultrafast X-ray science. Worldwide new ultrafast XUV and X-ray sources are presently becoming available. Bringing together groups who have recently combined research in XUV/X-ray HHG and plasma science with research efforts at FLASH and BESSY offer a broad education for PhD students.
UPV/EHU coordinator of "European Doctorate in Materials Science and European Doctorate in Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials" (Since 2004).
Participation in the Master inter-universitario en Nanociencia y Nanotecnología Molecular, Coordinado por el Prof. Eugenio Coronado, Universidad de Valencia.
Lectures on "MBPT and TDDFT: Theory and Tools for Electronic-Optical Properties Calculations in Material Science" for Ph.D. courses at Physics Department, University of Cagliari (Oct-2009)
Member of the International Max Planck Research School for Ultrafast Imaging and Structural Dynamics (IMPRS-UFAST). (The link is http://www.imprs-ufast.de/index_eng.html)
The IMPRS-UFAST graduate school is a cooperation of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter, the Universität Hamburg, Deutsches Elektronen Synchrotron DESY, and European XFEL GmbH. The School is conceptually embedded in the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg and strongly encourages interdisciplinary research. Specific research areas include theoretical and experimental aspects of condensed matter and atomically resolved dynamics, fundamental light-matter interaction, accelerator-based light sources, coherent imaging, coherent controlled molecular and solid state dynamics, molecule imaging, extreme timescale spectroscopy, ultrafast optics and x-ray science, and their relevance and applications in chemistry, biology and medicine.
We offer a structured Ph.D. programme in which intensive research is complemented by advanced courses, academic and soft skills training. Academic courses are taught by IMPRS faculty members and invited guest scientists.Students are guided by an Advisory Panel and are registered for PhD studies at the Universität Hamburg.
The notes for the lectures and links to the different schools can be found below.

Although not mandatory, bringing one's laptop is highly recommended, as all sessions are mostly practical. Please refer to the adequate persons / info pages to connect your computer to the network of the university. Please agree with your colleagues beforehand if you would like to share their laptop during the sessions.

Former group computer tutorials (by Yann Pouillon):
- Wildcards & regular expressions (2010/05/10)
- Basic security, remote connections, and environment variables (2010/11/22)
- Compiling, linking, debugging, optimizing (2011/04/04)

Individual tutorials tailored for your project can be organised upon personal request to Yann Pouillon. The following topics have been covered so far:
- writing efficient makefiles;
- modularising a project;
- adding autotools support to a project;
and the list can be extended to any kind of computer-related topic. The schedule will be adapted to the availabilities of everybody. The homework will be designed to allow for a constant progression curve.
