About CoQuS

The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS) was established in 2007 as the graduate education programme for Vienna quantum science. It was created to introduce a unique inter-university graduate center that offers access to an exclusive mix of research and training around the focus area of complex quantum systems and across institutional boundaries.

The competitive multi-stage recruitment process based on academic achievements and scientific qualifications, imposes strict quality-based selection criteria.

Within CoQuS, students are being offered highly competitive PhD topics at the forefront of current international research activities.

A cross-institute thesis advisory committee (TAC) documents the progress of the PhD student on an annual basis.

CoQuS has also developed a broad training programme that includes

  • Bi-weekly colloquia with renowned scientists,
  • Lectures and seminars by both CoQuS faculty and international visiting scholars,
  • Secondments to first-class institutions and research groups around the world,
  • Annual summer schools and retreats,
  • Training in transferable skills and
  • Outreach activities.
