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.

Further positions within the running collaborative projects are offered by research groups of the Centre. More details about the application procedure in this case are given here if you are interested in joining us as a postdoc and here if you are looking for a PhD position.

Finally, you can also gain hands-on research experience on the undergraduate level: The summer and internship job program of the Centre was launched in January 2011 and has already accommodated five students at different Max-Planck Institutes.

In all cases, please apply electronically, following the instructions on the web page corresponding to the type of position you are interested in.
