The Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Innsbruck invites applications for the IQOQI Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in Quantum Science for the year 2023.

The mission of the IQOQI Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship is to establish a distinguished postdoctoral fellowship program for IQOQI Innsbruck that identifies, recruits and supports the most talented and promising young quantum physicists at an early stage of their careers.

The Prize Fellowship is awarded for two years (with an optional third year) to an outstanding experimental or theoretical physicist and offers freedom in the choice of the hosting research group within IQOQI Innsbruck. In addition to a competitive salary and social benefits, the Fellowship offers travel and research fund for a total lump sum of 7000 Euro.

Recipients are selected by a committee of the scientific directorate and should have completed their Ph.D. degree by the time they start their assignment, should show outstanding research in theoretical or experimental quantum physics commensurate with the level of the position, and an ability to identify and pursue research problems independently while working well in an interactive and dynamic setting.
