Prize Scholarships for Summer ResearchQuantum Information and Quantum Control are exciting areas of
cross-disciplinary scientific research, which aim to exploit
fundamentally quantum mechanical phenomena for important technological
applications in communications, computing, laser control of molecular
processes and metrology.
CQIQC SUMMER SCHOLARSHIPS FOR UNDERGRADUATESThe Center for Quantum Information and Quantum Control (CQIQC),
located at the University of Toronto, is accepting applications for
Prize Scholarships for Undergraduate Students to undertake Summer
Research Projects at the University of Toronto in 2015. CQIQC will
provide funds for students to spend the summer working in one of the
research groups associated with the Center.
Qualifications: Advanced undergraduates majoring in Mathematics,
Physics, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Quantum
dynamics in molecules and nanoscale systems or related areas, with
excellent GPA's who have one or more years remaining in their
programme before the expected completion of their undergraduate degree.
Participating members can be found at: http://cqiqc.physics.utoronto.ca
How to apply: Send your CV, (including course listing with grades up
to the Fall term of 2014), a one page personal statement of your
research interests, and (if possible) a letter of support by a faculty
