Research Internships in Condensed Matter Physics

This is a list of some of the available topics. If you are interested in a specific topic not on this list, please refer to the homepage of the groups to find out about current research and contact the researchers involved. Note that in the case of experiments, not all experiments may have the capacity for a student at all times, please plan ahead and contact us early. Please note that these internships are aimed at students which are already part of the BCGS; scholarships to support internships for external students are not available.

The research internships in condensed matter physics are coordinated by Joachim Hemberger, who should be contacted prior to the internship.
