The mission of the IQOQI Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship is to identify, recruit and support the most talented and promising young quantum physicists at an early stage of their careers.

The Fellowship is awarded for two years - with an optional third year - to an outstanding experimental or theoretical physicist and offers the freedom of collaborating with research groups at the institute. Choosing a hosting research group is not a requirement, but optional. We value this independence and support and foster it. The IQOQI Prize postdoctoral researchers are communicated accordingly, including their visibility on our website.

Furthermore, the program offers various attractive benefits, such as a competitive salary and social benefits as well as research funds for a total lump sum of 7.000 Euro.

Recipients are selected by a committee of the scientific directorate and should have completed their PhD degree by the time they start their assignment. Applications are open on a yearly basis.

The application is closed for now
