Fellowship Program / Программа поддержки молодых ученых и аспирантов

The RQC Fellowships in Quantum Optics and Quantum Technology (theory and experiment) will be both on the PhD and postdoctoral level on the basis of international competition. The appointments are for two years. The fellowships carry a salary and offer research expenses.


The Fellowship program has been established at RQC in the end of 2011 in order to offer young scientists an opportunity to develop their talents in an excellent research environment. In addition to joining one of the research groups in RQC, the fellows will be able to undergo training in leading international laboratories (list of available options could be found here).


RQC provides a growing variety of research opportunities in the following areas of quantum optics and quantum technology:

  • Quantum optics
  • Quantum materials
  • Quantum information processing
  • Quantum engineering
  • Nanophotonics and Metamaterials
  • Quantum circuits

With this announcement, we are opening the second call for applications. The results of the previous call can be seen here. We plan to select up to 7 candidates to join us in 2014.


The application requirements include:

  • Master's degree (outstanding applicants on the Bachelor level will also be considered),
  • excellent knowledge of quantum mechanics,
  • good English proficiency.

Specific experience in the fields listed above is not required.


To apply, please send the following documents to fellowApplication@rqc.ru before February 15, 2014:

  • curriculum vitae in English;
  • transcript (a scanned copy of the Master's degree document);

  • names of at least two persons who can recommend you.

Selected candidates will be invited to the RQC Spring School (March 17-20 of 2014, Moscow) where they will be interviewed. We expect to notify the winners by the first week of June. The notified candidates will be required to accept or decline their offers by July 1, 2014.
