DESY Summer Students join 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.

Information about the different categories within A1-A6 can be found here.

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.
