Call for endress postdoctoral fellows in quantum science and quantum computing

The Center for Quantum Science and Quantum Computing (QSC) of the Universities of Basel (Switzerland) and Freiburg (Germany), embedded in EUCOR – The European Campus, invites applications for up to ten Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellowships to start in 2018. 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. The ideal Endress Fellow has recently finished a PhD in experimental or theoretical physics (or related areas) and is eager to shape the academic environment in research and teaching at both nodes. Fellows will be appointed typically for up to three years, and will be selected on the basis of scientific excellence as well as quality and innovative potential of proposed research in the QSC target areas of the Center, such as quantum information processing (quantum computation, simulation, and metrology), quantum technologies, complex quantum systems, quantum materials, and other emerging topics in quantum science.
