How to apply
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Quantum Optics at MPQ
The Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) and the Physics Department at Harvard University join their expertise to expand on their ground breaking research and to promote excellent young scientists.
Therefore the MPH Center for Quantum Optics invites interested young scientists to apply for our Postdoctoral Fellowships in Quantum Science. Fellowships are awarded for the duration of two years. Successful candidates can carry out their research either at Harvard or at MPQ, whilst taking advantage of the unique opportunity to pursue their research in collaboration with faculty and students at both institutions. Participation in collaborative research projects between Harvard and MPQ is specifically encouraged. Hereby, fellows will be offered the opportunity to travel between both institutions on a regular basis, while profiting from the excellent colloquia series and scientific retreat events organized by the center each year.
In order to be ebligible for the MPQ-Harvard fellowships applicants have to have completed their PhD before starting the fellowship. To apply, please submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a brief description of research interests and goals (the latter NOT TO BE EXCEEDING 500 WORDS) to either MPQ or Harvard. Applicants should also arrange for a minimum of three letters of reference to be uploaded to the same site. Only web submissions will be accepted.
After a first pre-selection, selected candidates will be invited to give a talk at our Harvard Fellowship Day at MPQ.
The Application Process re-opened in October 2017!
