The Georg H. Endress Postdoc cluster at the Center for Quantum Science and Quantum Computing (QSQC), embedded within EUCOR – the European campus, is a cross-border collaboration between the University of Basel (Switzerland) and the Albert-Ludwigs University in Freiburg (Germany).
The Georg H. Endress Postdoc cluster is a dedicated ten-year initiative to foster and educate outstanding young scientists to provide the academic talent and technology skills for the rapidly developing field of QSCQ. The Center seeks to attract outstanding and highly motivated early-career scientists in QSC to engage in cutting-edge projects involving existing research groups at Basel and Freiburg. Target areas of the Center involve quantum information processing (quantum computation, simulation, and metrology), quantum technologies, complex quantum systems, quantum materials, and other emerging topics in quantum science.
Worldwide a race is underway towards constructing a large-scale practical quantum computer. The Department of Physics at the University of Basel is a hub for spin-based quantum computing both in theory and experiment.Dr. Andreas Kuhlmann
Basel is a great place both from the cultural and scientific aspects. It is situated at the boundary of three countries, has a touch of three cultures, and opens a window to three different scientific worlds. The Georg H. Endress Postdoc Cluster profits from all these nice advantages.Dr. Kirill Plekhanov
I chose the Endress-Fellowship, because Freiburg and Basel are evolving spots at very qualitative and stable locations with excellent Universities including several research Institutions and a stimulating environment.Dr. Daniel Rieländer
I am thankful to have the opportunity to use the Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellowship to focus on the research topics that I am most interested in. In particular, I want to study the role of fundamental quantum properties as a resource for the development of novel quantum technologies.Dr. Andreas Ketterer
Devices exploiting unique features of quantum states are in the focus of the “second generation” of quantum technologies. In this respect, the Basel-Freiburg Centre for QSC would be an ideal home to my projects. I am thrilled at the idea of contributing to a network of Fellows and Principal Investigators working towards this common goal.Dr. Edoardo Carnio
With the support of G. H. Endress Fellowship, I plan to theoretically investigate low dimensional quantum systems, whose understanding is important for future quantum technologies. I appreciate this great opportunity to collaborate with excellent experimentalists working on quantum materials in Freiburg and Basel.Dr. Junichi Okamoto
The Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellowships allows me to conduct research in an independent way, and at the same time to collaborate with the field leading scientists.Dr. Andreas Kuhlmann
After the narrow thematic focus during doctoral studies, the Georg H. Endress Postdoc Cluster widens my scope of research interests.Dr. Alexander Mook
Becoming an Endress Postdoctoral Fellow will be an important step in my scientific career allowing me to get more independent research experience and deepen my knowledge of topological materials and quantum computing.Dr. Artem Kononov
The Georg H. Endress Postdoc Cluster allows the young scientists to immerse into the atmosphere of collaboration between the Universities of Basel and Freiburg and work with the brilliant scientists, both theorists and experimentalists, experts of the domain.Dr. Kirill Plekhanov
I like to spend relaxing weekends in the black forest, being able to commute by bike in less than 10 minutesDr. Daniel Rieländer
and still having the advantages of a big city.
I’m excited to work in this important area of physicsDr. Junichi Okamoto
in such an active environment.
The Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellowship is a step towards an academic career.Dr. Andreas Kuhlmann
Basel and Freiburg are cities that benefit greatly from the cultural diversityDr. Andreas Ketterer
that results from their immediate proximity to three countries.
As part of the cluster I am looking forward to a stimulating scientific environment setting off inspiring debates on current topics in quantum physics and related fields.Dr. Christoph Dittel
The Physics Department of Basel University is an excellent place for achieving my goalsDr. Artem Kononov
since it has many experts in the field and top-level experimental facilities.
For me, the Georg H. Endress Fellow position also gives an opportunity to explore the topics I am the most interested about: quantum technologies and quantum theory of condensed matter systems, related, in particular, to the notions of topological states of matter and the interplay between topology and interactions.Dr. Kirill Plekhanov
The Georg H. Endress Postdoc Cluster makes it possible to pool existing expertise of the Universities of Basel and Freiburg in the field of quantum physics through a group of young motivated scientists.Dr. Andreas Ketterer
The Georg H. Endress Cluster provides an excellent surrounding for young, creative minds to network, thereby laying the foundation of their successful career in academia.Dr. Alexander Mook
The fruitful ground for high-quality research provided by the George H. Endress Postdoc Cluster allows individual young scientists to develop and realise their ideas under an increasing collaboration between the Universities of Freiburg and Basel.Dr. Christoph Dittel
