Sponsored by the National Science Foundation within the “Quantum Leap” and “Growing Convergent Research” Big Ideas (award #1747426), the University of Chicago and Harvard University seek qualified students from graduate schools in the US and US territories for the Quantum Information Science and Engineering Network (QISE-NET). The QISE-NET program supports graduate students who conduct their doctoral research jointly with a company or a national laboratory. Graduate students selected for the program work with both their academic adviser and one from a leading technology company or national laboratory.

The QISE-NET program is led jointly by UChicago and Harvard, and managed by the Chicago Quantum Exchange, an intellectual hub and partnership for advancing academic and industrial efforts in the science and engineering of quantum information. QISE-NET is focused on training a new generation of quantum engineers who pursue leading-edge science and engineering as well as longer-term industrial goals.


Individuals selected for this program will become one part of a triplet, composed of the student, university PI mentor and industrial or national laboratory mentor, all of who work together for up to three years to answer a pressing research question for both academia and industry.

Students are the primary recipients of support, working within a focused academic-industry and academia-national laboratory collaboration that includes thesis development, specific research goals, extended visits at the industrial partner’s site, and network-level mentoring opportunities. QISE-NET students will receive stipends to facilitate their participation within the network.

The typical award will consist of $10,000 per year to augment — not replace — the student’s current stipend and will be used to reimburse travel to and local expenses at the company or national laboratory location for collaborative research, as well as for appropriate research-related expenses. Additional funding will be made available to allow for participation in the annual workshop.


Graduate students from universities located within the United States and US territories who are pursuing advanced degrees in areas related to QISE are eligible to apply. These areas include physics, materials science, quantum or device engineering, chemistry, computer science, and industrial research, among others. International students who meet these criteria are encouraged to apply as well. APPLICATION PROCESS:
