QuantumFrontiers International Research School

QFIRS offers one of the largest structured doctoral programmes in Hannover, hosting all of our Early Career Researchers (ECRs) involved in QuantumFrontiers. We also encourage all members to join the group and take active part in our various activities. We are an international, multi-disciplinary team with backgrounds in quantum engeneering, geodesy, theoretical physics and experimental physics.

Scope and Missions

Science, engineering and education

QFIRS provides ECRs with specific teaching in quantum and nano science and an intense programme of team building, scientific skills, and transferable skills education. We have more than 10 years of experience in running successful international graduate schools, namely the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) and the Braunschweig International Graduate School of Metrology (B-IGSM). QFIRS coordinates the interaction between graduate schools built up by QuantumFrontiers’ PIs and unites ECRs across the involved institutions, to ensure uniform training of the PhD students based on successful practices, and to ensure inter-institutional exchange of ideas between research groups at all participating institutions.
