The Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (IQST) in Baden-Württemberg, Germany invites applications for a two-year IQST postdoctoral fellowship. The fellowship is meant to provide young scientists, of unusual ability and promise, an opportunity to start research on a problem of their choice within the stimulating environment of the Center for IQST. The proposed research plan of the applicant should contribute to the overall goals and efforts of IQST; in particular, research plans that support the effort of collaboration between different disciplines, industry, and campuses will be viewed most favorably. Successful applicants will be hosted by an IQST Fellow for administrative and equipment support. Please consult the website www.iqst.org for more information about the IQST Fellows, the center’s research topics, and application details. Applications, including an evaluation from the IQST Fellow, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Postdoc Fellowship Application’ in the title by October 1st.
Proposals will be evaluated by the IQST Executive Board and ranked by the IQST Scientific Advisory Board with the following criteria:
- Scientific excellence reflected in your academic and research record.
- Innovation, feasibility, and significance of your scientific proposal.
- Evaluation by the Fellow explaining the contribution of the proposed work to IQST.
- Completion of the PhD after October 2012.

The Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (IQST) stimulates synergies between the fields of natural and engineering sciences to form a new discipline: "Quantum Science and Technology". We develop ideas and prototypes for future quantum technologies, which push the boundaries of existing knowledge and devices. In parallel we purpose to educate pioneering researchers in quantum science in an interdisciplinary, collaborative environment. We foster future industrial applications, which will have a positive impact on society, e.g. in the field of medicine or in telecommunications networks.
