The Departement of Physics of the University of Basel is a center for international top-level research in the fields of nano and quantum physics, and cosmology and particle physics. Our students benefit from the excellence in research that offers them an outstanding range of courses supervised by highly talented assistants and renowned professors.
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 Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellowships to start in 2019.
Would you like to understand fundamental scientific phenomena and explore their causes? Do you have a good technical understanding and a talent for logical thinking and mathematics? Do you have stamina and a willingness to learn? Are you looking for a degree course that will give you access to a wide range of attractive job opportunities? Then our physics degree course offers you exactly what you are looking for.
This new international PhD program bundles a wide range of expertise, know-how, and resources of the Department of Physics at the University of Basel as well as of Eucor – The European Campus,in the emerging research field of quantum sciences, quantum technologies and quantum information.
The program is aimed at attracting outstanding PhD students from in- and outside of Switzerland and providing training at the forefront of research in these fields.
To apply for a PhD excellence fellowship please check for the requirements and application procedure at this site.
