The QuEnG doctoral programme is funded by the Idex-UGA and aims to foster a pluridisciplinary ecosystem for quantum technologies. Outstanding candidates are invited to apply for the three-year interdisciplinary PhD program "Quantum Engineering Grenoble" (QuEnG). The laureates will pursue high-level research at the interface between physics, mathematics, computer sciences, social sciences, humanities, or with industrial coaching.

The QuEnG program aims to foster a local ecosystem for quantum technologies, building on the unique concentration of expertises, know-how, and resources of Grenoble area. The targeted ecosystem will connect various areas of knowledge, from science to humanities and entrepreneurship. The students of the program will work together to address current challenges of quantum technologies, at the interface between physics, computer science, mathematics, industry, philosophy and social science.

They will contribute to the creation, the development and the animation of the ecosystem through actions supported by Grenoble-Alpes University. The QuEnG program provides a unique opportunity to develop a network both in the private and in the academic sector, and to become one of the future quantum engineers.
