QUSTEC offers 39 early-stage researchers interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international training in the field of quantum science and technologies (QST).
Coordinator is the European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation (EGTC) Eucor – The European Campus that consists of five universities that are located in the trinational research area of the Upper Rhine, at the border between France, Germany and Switzerland. For QUSTEC, the Eucor Members University of Basel, University of Freiburg, University of Strasbourg and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology are joined by IBM-Research in Zurich. The QUSTEC training programme is in line with the European Charter for Researchers, the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers and the EU Principles
for Innovative Doctoral Training. Fellows can choose their position among the offer of the partner organisations and will be enrolled in a doctoral programme of one of the partaking universities. They will be selected in an open, transparent, merit-based procedure based on international peer review. All fellows will be offered a generous 4-year employment contract with the corresponding social security provisions. An individual training panel in a three-tier training programme will supervise them. With a budget of 9 139 308,48 Euro and an overall duration of 5 years, the QUSTEC programme offers one call and one reserve call for doctoral candidates from the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) field. The scientific focus lies on the six scientific areas of quantum electronics, artificial quantum systems, quantum nano devices, non-equilibrum quantum systems, quantum resources, and quantum simulation. The Cofund support will serve as nucleus for earlystage research career training, create synergies among the partner institutions and contribute to Europe’s leadership role in the emerging field of QST. The selection and evaluation process of QUSTEC follows the principles of the H2020 Grants Manual regarding Excellence, Transparency, Fairness and Impartiality, Efficiency, Speed, Ethics and Security. The participating member universities of the EGTC Eucor and the partner institutions also adhere to Charter and Code for the recruitment and employment of researchers and have extensive experience in recruiting researchers. The written evaluation will be carried out by two independent external evaluators. Each application will be reviewed by two independent evaluators. Once a candidate has passed the 70% threshold of the written evaluation, an oral evaluation(interview) will be carried out by a panel of the future potential supervisor, one independent expert who previously assessed the CV, and one partner organisation representative. At least one member of the selection panel will be female. Interviews will be carried out either via Skype or in person. More information is in the Guide for applicants on the QUSTEC-website (https://www.eucoruni.org/en/qustec)
