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.
