Please be aware that as of now ALL VDS applications for any quantum group has to go through the VCQ path as described here. So please submit your application via this application form.
If your application is successfull and you will become part of a Quantum group at the University of Vienna, you will automatically be a member of VDSP. If you have any questions regarding this please do not hesitate to contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please read before applying:
- Please: do not fill out the application form in capital letters. It makes it really hard to read for us (and to be honest it feels like we are being yelled at)
- of course you can ask ChatGPT to write your motivation letter. But we do prefer you to do it.
- make sure to choose an application ID that is easy to remember for you and recommenders. Only so can we assure that application and recommendation letters find each other
- the recommendation form is usually open another week after the application deadline in order to give late applicants a fair chance ot have their recommendation letters submitted
- If you have any questions regarding your application or want / need some changes, please contact us on: email@example.com
