Introductory Week: Welcoming Retreat in the Bavarian Alps: 31 July – 3 August. Here you will get familiar with the basic concepts of QST, take part in soft skill trainings, and get to know your peers at a beautiful location in the Bavarian alps. Once back in Munich, the introductory week concludes with a mini lecture series by our QST experts, laying the foundation for your research project. Laboratory visits at the different sites of MCQST in Munich and Garching will also give you an overview of the research activities at MCQST.
Research Project: In the remaining three weeks you will work on a hands-on project in one of the research groups. A junior researcher (PhD student or postdoc) will serve as your mentor and personal contact, introducing you to your project and supervising it. You will be fully integrated into the research group, allowing you to experience the processes and challenges of cutting-edge research in QST.
Closing Symposium: The program ends with a Closing Symposium, where you will present your work through a 10-minute talk to your peers and the MCQST community.
