Quantum Grenoble Doctoral Programme

Project description

Doctoral training in fundamental quantum science and technologies

The second quantum revolution promises technological developments such as quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum sensing and quantum communication. This revolution will require scientific expertise (ranging from quantum and condensed matter physics to mathematics and computer science), collaboration with human sciences, and industrial experience in the production of suitable materials and technologies. The MSCA-funded QUANG project is supporting the Grenoble Alpes University (UGA) in training researchers in quantum science and technologies. The programme will prepare tomorrow’s leaders in this field, offering them the opportunity to diversify their skills and tackle problems in both fundamental quantum science and technologies. Thirty associated partners, academics and industry professionals and 17 laboratories will support the UGA in undertaking this ambitious project, which will recruit 36 PhD researchers.


The application of quantum phenomena to the development of new technological applications is one of the challenges of this century, as it promises to revolution citizens’ lives on communication, sensing, computation, and security. Quantum technologies are a priority of European and national stakeholders, in order to secure European technological sovereignty in this highly strategic field. As renowned actor in quantum science and technology, Université Grenoble-Alpes is proposing a COFUND DP aimed at efficiently train research fellows in this emergent domain, facing short to long-term challenges, and to build their career perspectives with various track options (short to medium-term positions, in private employment market, where the need of several thousand jobs profiles in quantum topics is expected to emerge in the next eight years, and in renown research centres all across Europe). Fellows will be at the forefront of emergent quantum discoveries from fundamental science to novel technologies, in a “3i” ecosystem, with perspective to diversify their set of skills and forge new mind sets and approaches to research and innovation. QuanG will rely on the strong basis sets by previous COFUND, enabling fellows to be rapidly recruited using robust, efficient, fair and transparent recruitment and integration process, and immersed in excellent training and supervision conditions, both from research and transferable skills perspectives. Besides, QuanG will aim at including all types of minorities and will strongly encourage women applications. 30 Associated Partners, academics and industrials, and 17 laboratories are supporting UGA in pushing forward this ambitious project, that will recruit 36 PhD fellows, over 4 calls, for a duration of 5 years. UGA consortium will invest 60% of the total funding available to fellows noticeably covering research, training, communication and selection costs.
