How to work with us

    What kinds of projects does Citrine’s External Research Department (ERD) work on?

    The ideal ERD research project is non-proprietary and publishable, and addresses one or more of these themes:

    • Applications
      • Machine learning-guided materials and process design, with a feedback loop that involves experiments and/or simulations
      • Modeling materials phenomena across length and timescales, from atomistic to macroscopic
      • Machine learning-augmented materials characterization
    • Method Development
      • Materials informatics algorithm and method development
      • Integrating machine learning and physics-based simulations
    • Software
      • Automation of simulations and laboratory experiments
      • Materials data infrastructure deployment and utilization
      • Open-source software development
    • Data
      • Materials property database development and publication


    How does ERD collaborate with researchers at other institutions?

    • We first work to establish an external funding source (e.g., government research funding agencies or foundations) who will sponsor the project. ERD is unable to work on unfunded research projects.
    • Citrine provides collaborative groups with unique combined expertise in materials-specific machine learning, physics-based simulations, state-of-the-art software infrastructure, and scientific software development.


    I’d like to discuss a possible funded research opportunity.

    • We would love to hear from you.

    Does Citrine offer internships?

    • Citrine offers internships at different times throughout the year. Please check our current postings for more information.


    How can I learn more about materials informatics?

    • Citrine develops and disseminates materials informatics educational content, often in collaboration with other institutions.


    • Citrine has a weekly newsletter covering developments in the materials informatics field.
