Welcome to the Spin-NANO website

A collaborative European Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) in Horizon 2020.
Recruitment of 15 early stage researchers (PhD students) for a period of 36 months, starting in 2016.
Innovative doctoral-level training for 15 highly-skilled early stage researchers, providing a range of skills in order to maximise employability.

This four year network (which started in January 2016) brings together an exceptionally strong team of world-leading experts in nano-science and technology from 6 European countries in order to achieve breakthroughs in understanding and successful utilization of nanoscale solid-state spin systems in emerging quantum technologies.

The consortium of 14 academic and 7 industrial groups will deliver top international level multidisciplinary training to 15 early stage researchers, offering them an extended program of multinational exchanges and secondments. 

Please see current vacancies under Recruitment.

The training will be provided by world class research and industry institutions from the UK, Germany, France, Switzerland, The Netherlands and Denmark.

Full members of the network are the Universities of Sheffield and Cambridge, Technical University of Munich, University of Konstanz, National Centre for Scientific Research, TU Delft, ETH Zürich, Universities of Basel and Copenhagen with industrial partners Helia Photonics and attocube systems AG.  The associated partners are the University of Manchester and National Graphene Institute, Element Six, Janssen Precision Engineering, Leiden Cryogenics B.V, HQGraphene and Urenco.  

Network-wide training course in transferable skills will be specially developed and delivered by the Think Ahead (Sheffield), an award winning programme supporting Early Career Researchers (award by the Times Higher Education, 2014).
