Grenoble Quantum Engineering - PhD Program 2017
4 calls : LANEF, Nanosciences Foundation, GreQuE and QuEnG, are now close. The next call will be open soon (october 2017).
The Grenoble Quantum Engineering (GreQue) doctoral programme has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 754303. It will provide the laureates with a double training involving fundamental research in top-level laboratories and strong industrial exposure through internships within our network of industrial partners.
GreQuE novel Doctoral Program will grant 25 PhD projects spread over 4 calls in 2017 and 2018. The PhD projects will be hosted in Grenoble research Institutes(see list below), and each student will benefit from a 2 to 6 months placement in a European company. 17 SMEs & large groups, and 2 Research and Development centers have committed to offer such placement to our students in accordance with their PhD project (see list below).
The deadline for the first call is 2017, April 10, 11:59 am (Paris time).
GreQuE Doctoral Program is expected to:
1. Train top level quantum researchers willing to turn quantum technologies in important economic and societal impacts,
2. Improve career opportunities at short and long-term scale by immersing the PhD candidates in the engineering culture,
The topics includes experimental and theoretical aspects of
• Superconductive Qbits,
• Computer science.
This project is under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) program. There is no nationality condition but the candidates must fulfill the MSCA mobility conditions, which means that the candidates may not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in France for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the date of recruitment. The date of recruitment will be 2017, september 1rst at the earliest.
The salary is 1758 €/month before tax for 3 years.
