Next call: late Autumn 2023


The Vienna Doctoral School in Physics, VDSP, and the Vienna Center for Quantum Science & Technology (VCQ) are maximizing their synergies.

Note that all PhD applications to supervisors in the Quantum Groups within VDSP shall be channeled through the Vienna Center of Quantum Science and Technology, VCQ. The current deadline is August 31st 2023.

Students can also apply directly to VCQ and will be automatically integrated into the VDSP, if they start a VCQ PhD at the University of Vienna, once they have signed the Code of Good Practice.  

VCQ students affiliated with the University of Vienna thus profit from all VDSP benefits on the same footing as all other VDSP students in all other fields of physics.  

The University of Vienna has an anti-discriminatory employment policy and attaches great importance to equal opportunities, the advancement of women and diversity. We lay special emphasis on increasing the number of women in senior and in academic positions among the academic and general university staff and therefore expressly encourage qualified women to apply. Given equal qualifications, preference will be given to female candidates.
