About Research PhD
Quantum Leap Africa (QLA) offers a unique atmosphere that prepares Research PhD students for careers in academia and industry. Our students are supervised and mentored by QLA faculty and leading researchers in our partner institutions and receive their degrees from QLA.
We are committed to preparing our students to reach the threshold of academic research independence required for knowledge creation and application. To achieve this, we have created a highly motivating and interactive environment for pushing the boundaries of scientific knowledge. This gives research masters students an opportunity to gain high-quality research experience in a rich environment within state-of-the-art facilities with professional career guidance. We are currently looking for motivated, talented students to become involved in research projects covering areas such as mathematics, data science, smart systems and quantum information.
