Thank you for your interest in the Experimental Investigator Program. The pre-application phase is now closed. 

EPiQS Experimental Investigator Program Goals

Our EPiQS experimental investigator program aims to boost discovery-driven research in the physics of quantum materials by providing a group of leading experimental scientists with substantial, flexible funding that gives them the freedom to explore and, if needed, change research directions. The experimental investigator awards will focus on people, rather than particular research topics, materials or techniques. We expect that these awards will relieve some of the leading scientists in the field from pressures and constraints of the current funding environment, thus maximizing their creativity. The investigators will become part of the EPiQS integrated research program that will involve experimental investigations, materials synthesis, theoretical research and a variety of collaboration- and community-building activities.
