Distinguished Postdoc Fellowship

Fostering Excellence

One of the primary 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 scientists, 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 these positions every year. The Executive Committee will select one to three distinguished fellows from all applications nominated by MCQST PIs.

How to apply

Applications should include:

  • 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
  • Letter of recommendation (not from the MCQST host)

Please note that we cannot accept applications without a support declaration by a MCQST PI. If you are not already in contact with one of our PIs, you can find a list of our members here . It is important that an MCQST PI supports your application as they will provide not only funding and academic guidance but also structural support like an office space. We are aware that this adds an extra hurdle for external applicants but this approach has proven very fruitful for a successful outcome of the fellowship in the past. As the host will have to fund one year of your fellowship, not all members will have open positions.


Please send all application documents to support[at]mcqst.de

Application deadline: January 22, 2023.

We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and we welcome trans women and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.
