Selection process

Conditions

Application is open for students in the last year of the degree or who are right now working on their master studies.

Candidates must be fluent in English, as that will be the language of the meeting in the Quantum Future Academy in Berlin.

We accept students from Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering or any other technical or non-technical specialties, who are motivated to learn and contribute to the world of Quantum Technologies.

The selection process has two steps: a submission and an interview.

  • The deadline for the submission is July 19th.

  • The interview will take place in July 24th via an open Zoom multiconference.

  • In July we will announce the selected candidates.

How can you apply?

The first step of the submission requires you to send us

  • A copy of your CV, including your marks in the degree and máster

  • A one page motivation letter explaining why you want to participate.

A selection of students will be invited to participate in an open online workshop, where you will be asked to present yourself in a 5 minute speech, summarizing your interests and motivation, and answering questions from a panel of international experts and teachers in the field.
