General Info

We at the "Max-Planck-UBC-UTokyo Centre for Quantum Materials" are devoted to offering opportunities at different stages of the scientific career. Conducting research in a collaborative project of our international setting profits from significant synergies which arise from sharing ideas and expertise as well as access to materials and experimental facilities between the partner institutions. Depending on your project, as a successful candidate you will have a supervisor from either the UBC, the UTokyo or the Max-Planck Institute, with a co-supervisor from the respective partner institution; and you will have the chance to spend some time working at both locations.

At present, we are seeking excellent candidates to fill a number of top-tier Max-Planck-UBC-UTokyo fellowship positions. If you are a highly motivated individual with a strong scientific record and own ideas, and less than three years of postdoctoral experience, we encourage you to further explore this opportunity here.

The projects

The Center is now actively recruiting Postdoctoral Research Fellows for 2-3 years. The starting date is flexible. For a list of current projects see
