Announcement | HZDR Summer Student Program 2020

29th January 2020

Welcome to the HZDR Summer Student Program 2020. The HZDR is now inviting international advanced undergraduate and master students in natural sciences and related areas to join our research teams during the time between July and September 2020.

Summer students will work and research in one of our institutes, being
an integral part of a research group working on predefined topics.
The tasks range from hands on operations in the labs to data analysis, scientific computing and theoretical science. It is a good chance to get
to know the day-to-day scientific life.
Research at the HZDR has many facets, providing students with the unique opportunity of working in either natural or life sciences while focusing on fundamental or application-driven research or technology development.
