More than an academic program, the International PhD Program in Quantum Materials connects students with the infrastructure, mentorship, and training opportunities at the University of British Columbia/Canada, the Max Planck Institute of Solid State Research and the University of Stuttgart/Germany to answer big research questions and find future success.

A new joint-PhD program between the University of Stuttgart and the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (SBQMI) at the University of British Columbia, with participation from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany, offers unparalleled opportunities to study in the fields of quantum materials and quantum materials-based devices. The highly collaborative nature of the joint-PhD program means that graduate student scientists are exposed to a wide variety of experimental and theoretical techniques, and materials systems beyond their immediate research projects, and will contribute to a rapidly evolving research frontier. 

Successful applicants will be outstanding and highly motivated scientists with a strong background in physics or chemistry. Strong publications on quantum materials and enthusiasm for collaborative research are expected. Enrolled students will divide their time between the three participating institutions, and will be supported by faculty at each site.

Degrees and certifications will be conferred by each institution.

“The joint PhD program gives me the chance to get to know a second academic environment, meet interesting people, and participate in the collaboration between our two institutes.”

Rafael Haenel, a joint PhD student supervised by Marcel Franz at UBC, and Dirk Manske at the Max Planck Institute (MPI) in Stuttgart.

Applications for this program are now open through the Max Planck Graduate Center for Quantum Materials.
