Distinguished Postdoc Fellowship

One of the major goals of MCQST is to increase the number of female scientists at all career stages in the field of Quantum Science and Technology (QST) in Munich. As an incentive for proactively hiring excellent female postdocs, MCQST offers fellowships funding excellent female postdoctoral researchers for one year, under the condition that the hosting MCQST group commits to funding of another year through other means.

MCQST provides funding for such positions every year. The Executive Committee will select one to three distinguished fellows from all applications nominated by MCQST PIs.

  • CV, list of publications, and talks by the candidate
  • Brief research statement describing the envisaged project written by the candidate
  • Declaration by the hosting PI committing to another year of funding of the candidate
