DESY invites applications applications from undergraduate students in physics or related natural science disciplines for its Summer Student Programme.
About Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) (http://www.desy.de/index_eng.html):
DESY is one of the world's leading accelerator centres. Researchers use the large-scale facilities at DESY to explore the microcosm in all its variety - from the interactions of tiny elementary particles and the behaviour of new types of nanomaterials to biomolecular processes that are essential to life.

Selected intern's day-to-day responsibilities include joining groups engaged in the following activities:

Program A : Experiments with Synchrotron Radiation (only at Hamburg) - Students join photon science groups at DESY engaged in fundamental and applied research in the fields of physics, biology, chemistry, crystallography, material science, and geological science. Some of the students will work in the frame of the European XFEL project. The work includes participation in activities like preparation and realization of measurements, evaluation of measured data, and technical improvements of instrumentation

Program B : Research in Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics, accelerators and computing - summer students will work in the physics analysis, software or detector related fields of experiments in elementary particle physics (ATLAS, CMS, ILC, BELLE II, ALPS II) and astroparticle physics (CTA, IceCube), development of particle accelerators, theory of elementary particles and astroparticles, or computing.
