The Vienna Graduate Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS) provides graduate education dominantly through intense research training and through advanced courses in one of the most active fields of modern physics.
In particular in recent years, many new ideas for future quantum technologies could already be demonstrated in the lab.
The Vienna doctoral program on Complex Quantum Systems offers PhD research and training opportunities in the following fields:
The program provides the opportunity for highly gifted students to obtain a broad and interdisciplinary education in many of these fields and to prove themselves in cutting edge research.
The following faculty members and associated members will serve as thesis supervisors:
The doctoral program is closely linked to several FWF funded and ERC excellence programs, to the Austrian Academy Institute of Quantum Optics and Quantum Information (IQOQI), to several European networks and many international collaboration projects.
We seek to increase the percentage of women in physics. The CoQuS faculty therefore explicitly encourages qualified female students to apply.
The Vienna graduate program provides financial support for up to three years. Doctoral students admitted to the CoQuS program will have a regular employment at their hosting University.
The employment includes:
The graduate program will also provide support for
The number of places in this excellence program is limited. The faculty members will select new students according to their academic excellence, scientific achievements and expected potential for future research.
Candidates interested in working in one of the CoQuS research groups are invited to put forward an application in the course of the CoQuS Calls.
External candidates i.e. candidates from universities which are not affiliated to the CoQuS programme are refered to the following website containing more detailed information on the CoQuS Call for external applications.
Internal candidates i.e. candidates from the two universities which are affiliated to the CoQuS program, the University of Vienna and the Vienna University of Technology, are refered to the following website containing more detailed information on the CoQuS Call for internal applications.
