EPiQS Funding to Boost Quantum Materials Theory Research

March 10, 2014

Harvard has been chosen one of the six recipients of Gordon and Betty Mooore Foundation's Emergent Phenomena in Quantum Systems (EPiQS) grants.

A major objective of EPiQS is to provide funding that enables a community of top experimentalists and theorists to maximize their potential to explore, discover and understand emergent behavior of complex quantum matter. EPiQS support for theoretical research in quantum materials focuses on establishing Moore Postdoctoral and Visiting Scholars programs, in the hope of:

  • maximizing scientific productivity and enriching the overall intellectual environment at these institutions, and
  • enabling some of the top young talent in theory to acquire a breadth of expertise through flexible postdoctoral appointments in which they can pursue their interests and work with multiple faculty members.
