Potentially successful candidates have to meet the following main criteria:
- Very good Master’s degree or equivalent qualification
- Capacity or good previous knowledge in Quantum Computing and Quantum Technology and/or the respective basics
- Convincing/proven interest and motivation in Quantum Computing and Quantum Technology
- Publications in a relevant research field are desirable
As a potential candidate for the PhD School you have to
- Verify if you are eligible for the Physics doctoral degree program. As a condition for admission into the Physics doctoral degree program, the University of Basel requires a master’s degree (usually, but not necessarily, in Physics) or a degree considered equivalent to a master’s degree. Click here for details or contact the admissions office for specific information. For applicants holding another type of degree, the admissions committee of the Faculty of Science decides case-by-case whether the degree can be considered equivalent to a master’s degree. A bachelor’s degree in general is considered insufficient for an admission into the doctoral degree program.
- Identify the field of research you are being interested
- Apply directly to the professor heading the research group (https://www.quantum.unibas.ch/people/), submitting the following documentation:
- Transcript of BSc and MSc diploma
- Motivational Letter
- Publications (if there is/are)
- Once you have been accepted by a professor for a PhD at the department (or at an accredited partner institution of the PhD School QCQT), you can apply for the admission to the PhD School QCQT.
- Submit the same documentation as mentioned above to the PhD School’s program coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Applications are being accepted on a continuing basis
