Aurora Excellence Fellowship program for visiting Bachelor and Master students





Join the Aurora Excellence Fellowship program for visiting Bachelor and Master students!


The Aurora excellence fellowship program for visiting Bachelor and Master students is an internship to enhance scientific collaboration and exchange in the fast-developing field of quantum science and technology between two of the nine universities who build up the Aurora European Universities Alliance.  

Therefore, we are looking for enthusiastic and talented students who want to join an international team of researchers and deeply delve into quantum physics and have the fantastic opportunity to gain invaluable skills in electronics, photonics, programming, data analysis, and many more.


The successful candidate will be hosted and supervised in one of the theoretical or experimental research groups at the Universität Innsbruck (Inst. of Theoretical Physics, Inst. of Experimental Physics) or the University of Naples, Federico II (Dept. of Physics “Ettore Pancini”, Dept. of Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies).    

In case of acceptance, a stay of a 3 up to 5-week timeframe in summer 2023 in one of the research groups will be granted, of which the travel expenses and accommodation will be fully covered following the host institutions internal rules (further information will be available upon acceptance).


Highly motivated and curious students with a passion for quantum science and technology who are currently enrolled in a Bachelor or Master program in physics or engineering at either Universität Innsbruck or University of Naples Federico II, are welcome to apply.
