International PhD Program in Quantum Materials

The International Ph.D. Program in Quantum Materials (joint-PhD) is an exciting academic program connecting the Stewart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute (Blusson QMI) at the University of British Columbia and the University of Stuttgart, with participation from the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany. The program offers unparalleled opportunities to study in the fields of quantum materials and quantum materials-based devices, and its highly collaborative nature exposes graduate student scientists to a wide variety of experimental and theoretical techniques and materials systems beyond their immediate research projects and will empower students to contribute to a rapidly evolving research frontier.

We are looking for 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 must 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.
