The International Graduate School in Quantum Science and Nanomaterials (QMat) is located at the University of Strasbourg in France. Why work for us The continuing miniaturization and integration of information technologies requires a better understanding and control of the quantum nature of matter. By exploiting quantum effects we can create new devices and materials that will shape the future of technology and positively impact society. QMat prepares the next generation of quantum scientists and engineers for this task, by putting outstanding MSc and PhD students at the forefront of research combined with an engaging training programme bridging physics, material science, chemistry and engineering.

Training and development We run an internationally recognized Master of Physics and PhD programme. Study in English at the crossroads of Europe and at the forefront of physics, materials science, chemistry and engineering. Learn from leading experts in fundamental and applied science: quantum technology; subatomic physics; nanomaterials; nanoscience; device engineering and more. Courses are integrated with individual research projects. Our state-of-the-art research facilities
