Our QCQT PhD program at the University of Basel offers to me important opportunities that supplement the daily scientific life in my research group: The weekly QCQT seminar unites researchers from different research areas and allows me both to keep informed about the variety of research projects at the department and to get new inspiration.Martin Koppenhöfer
The QCQT PhD school gives us the opportunity to work in an international environmentKatharina Laubscher
and allows us to engage in cutting-edge science from the very beginning of our studies.
The QCQT PhD school at the University of Basel guarantees group collaboration as well as individual research,Timothy Camenzind
always ensuring that theory can be linked to experiments in an effective way.
The QCQT PhD school provides a unique opportunity to gain insight into a variety of current research topics due to the broad spectrum of research seminars and special PhD programs. Furthermore, it facilitates to connect with other research groups within the QSIT network which leads to new highly promising collaborative projects.Nadine Leisgang
PhD schools in collaboration with other organizations as well as workshops or company excursion organized by the school provide to me important lectures, softskills, and contacts in and out of academia. If necessary, the travelling support brings even faraway conferences into reach.Martin Koppenhöfer
The QCQT PhD school brings together over 15 research groups from both theoretical and experimental quantum science and quantum technology at the University of Basel and cooperates closely with EUCOR – the European campus. Together, we are offering an excellent graduate program covering basic courses, advanced seminars, summer/winter schools and workshops, performing research at the forefront of quantum science and quantum technology.
Further, the program also provides soft skill courses, industry contacts, and an international, interdisciplinary and thriving environment in strong exchange with partner programs and centers such as the NCCR SPIN and the NCCR QSIT. We are aiming at attracting outstanding PhD students from in- and outside of Switzerland and providing training at the forefront of QCQT research.
The main areas of research are quantum computing, quantum measurements, spintronics and quantum magnonics, quantum sensing, quantum optics and cold atoms, quantum transport and nanoelectronics, topological properties of condensed matter systems, and quantum communication.
Only few PhD positions are directly provided by the QCQT PhD school. Two new positions for excellent PhD candidates with an outstanding MSc degree in quantum science or a related field are offered in the second half of 2022.
For application get in contact with one of the PI’s of the participating research groups. After contacting one of the PI’s and secure their support for your application for a PhD position please submit the following as a single pdf file via email to the coordinator Dr. Thilo Glatzel not later than September 30th 2022:
