Graduate School

​A main objective of this project is to foster the next generation of Swedish quantum researchers and quantum engineers. The Swedish Graduate School in Quantum Technologies, headed by Göran Johansson will be based at Chalmers.
Over the full 10-year program, the Graduate School will fund 60 PhD studentships, our of which at least 20 are industry PhD students.
The Graduate School will develop an appropriate number of compulsory courses that run in two-year cycles. Each course will consist of theoretical as well as hand-on components, and be based on several sessions of lectures and workshops at the different participating universities. This will ensure a common language among the students, multi-disciplinary skills, an a strong sense of belonging to the community of Swedish quantum technology researchers and enineers.
Additionally, the faculty funded by the program will develop several specialised courses that are elective for all students of the Graduate School.
Student opportunities to present their work, interact with international experts from academia and industry, and form a professional network will include:
● Internships of at least three months at a research facility different than the home institution
● A biennial international summer school, in collaboration with the Guest Professor Program
● A biennial winter conference, with industry and government participation
Furthermore, we aim to provide a majority of our students with a mentor and a co-advisor from the industry stakeholders.
In the same vein, the postdocs recruited to the program will have the opportunity to follow the relevant graduate school courses and be encouraged to participate in the summer schools and winter conferences. In addition, we will ensure that each post-doc has a least one dedicated mentor, in addition to the main supervisor.
