Call for Georg H. Endress Postdoc Fellows

Basel-Freiburg Center for Quantum Science and Quantum Computing QSC

EUCOR – The European Campus 

The Center for Quantum Science and Quantum Computing (QSQC) of the Universities of Basel (Switzerland) and Freiburg (Germany), embedded in EUCOR – The European Campus, invites applications for up to four new postdoctoral fellows to start in 2024. The Center seeks to attract outstanding young talents to engage in cutting-edge projects involving the research groups present at Basel and Freiburg. The ideal Georg H. Endress Fellow has recently finished a PhD in experimental or theoretical physics (or related areas), is of the highest caliber of intellectual achievement, and is eager to shape the academic environment in research and teaching at both nodes. Fellows will be appointed for three years, and will be selected by the GHE Committee on the basis of scientific excellence demonstrated at an early-career stage, as well as quality and creativity of the proposed research in the QSQC target areas. The Fellows enjoy full independence in selection and focus of research direction at one of the two nodes throughout their three-year fellowship term, with the intention of bridging and combining activities in the two nodes. 

The Georg H. Endress Postdoc cluster is a dedicated ten-year initiative to foster and educate outstanding young scientists to provide the academic talent and technology skills for the rapidly developing field of quantum science. The Georg H. Endress Fellows will complement and expand the present strategic strengths in research at the Center. Target areas of the Center involve quantum computation, simulation, sensing and metrology, quantum technologies, complex quantum systems, quantum materials, and other emerging topics in quantum science. In previous calls, the Center has already appointed 25 Fellows and is now opening a 6th call aiming to appoint two new Fellows at the University of Freiburg (Germany) and two new Fellows at the University of Basel (Switzerland).

Applications contain the candidate’s CV and a short (up to two pages) research statement describing the studies he or she would like to pursue. Furthermore, candidates are requested to arrange for two confidential letters of reference. Applications and letters shall be submitted online, via  The Universities of Basel and Freiburg are equal opportunity employers.
