39 PhD positions in Quantum Science and Technologies (QUSTEC) with Eucor – The European Campus (with Eucor Members University of Basel, University of Freiburg, University of Strasbourg, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and joined by IBM-Research in Zurich)


QUSTEC offers 39 early-stage researchers interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international training in the field of quantum science and technologies (QST).

The QUSTEC training programme is in line with the European Charter for Researchers, the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and the EU Principles for Innovative Doctoral Training. Fellows can choose their position among the offer of the partner organisations and will be enrolled in a doctoral programme of one of the partaking universities. They will be selected in an open, transparent, merit-based procedure based on international peer review.

All fellows will be offered a generous 4-year employment contract with the corresponding social security provisions. An individual training panel in a three-tier training programme will supervise them. The scientific focus lies on the six scientific areas of quantum electronics, artificial quantum systems, quantum nano devices, non-equilibrum quantum systems, quantum resources, and quantum simulation. The Cofund support will serve as nucleus for early-stage research career training, create synergies among the partner institutions and contribute to Europe’s leadership role in the emerging field of QST. Our goal is to reach an overall percentage of 25% female ESRs or more. We will preferably accept women among equally qualified candidates and improve job attractiveness through a comprehensive array of measures ranging from a recruitment strategy and additional career development opportunities especially targeting women.

The QUSTEC programme has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement number 847471.
