Each summer DESY offers undergraduate students in physics, related natural science disciplines or computing the possibility to participate in the research activities of the laboratory. Selected candidates join in the day-to-day work of research groups at the DESY Laboratory in Hamburg or Zeuthen (Berlin) and participate in one of these activities.

While the work in the groups is the main activity, there will also be a series of lectures (given in English) related to the research done at DESY. Visits to the accelerators and experiments are also included in this programme.

Who can apply: 


  • Please take note that due to regulations for paid traineeships in Germany we can only accept students that are enrolled at their university for the whole period of the summerstudent programme.
  • Applicants should have completed, by the summer of 2020, at least three years of full-time studies at university level in physics, related natural science disciplines or computing. Please take note that large majority of projects we offer is for physics students. The main target audiences are students who in summer 2020 are at the following two stages:
    – they are about to obtain their Bachelor degree
    – they have a Bachelor degree and are within the first year of studies for a Master degree.
    Applicants who already obtained a master-degree or will obtain the master degree in 2020 are not accepted.
  • Applicants should not have previously been at DESY as a summer student

Please note that all applicants should have a good working knowledge of English, some basic computing skills and are committed to attend the whole programme.

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.
