IMPRS Quantum Science and Technology

Welcome! The International Max Planck Research School for Quantum Science and Technology is a joint venture of the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München and the Technical University of Munich.

Munich: a leading research centre in QST

Quantum science and technology is a vibrant and multidisciplinary field of research at the interface of physics, mathematics, computer science and material science. With over twenty experimental and theoretical research groups, Munich is one of the leading research centres in this field.

Our international PhD program unites the competences of these research groups in Munich to a common research and teaching plattform, thus offering PhD students exiting opportunities and exceptionally broad, yet focused training at the highest level.


Kick-Off Meeting of the IMPRS-QST

The IMPRS-QST was launched on October 2016 with the Munich Quantum Symposium. After a successful first selection round, our IMPRS welcomed the first cohort of PhD students this fall. Additionally, current doctoral candidates from the participating research groups have also joined the program. The kick-off meeting consisted of several talks by leading scientists in the field, as well as a poster presentation of young scientists from the Munich Quantum Center.
