Summer Student Program 2022 at HZDR

Welcome to our research center in „Florence on the Elbe“

Each summer the HZDR offers the possibility to join one of the research groups of our center and participate in investigation activities within a project.

This offer applies to international advanced undergraduate and master students in natural sciences and related areas.

Our researchers design a project plan for you and supervise and coach you during the whole project. The program is completed by a selected range of lectures and lab tours, which introduce you to the different branches of our research center.

With this program we contribute to the development of scientific research at an international and interdisciplinary level. We are convinced of the synergetic effect of integrative knowledge.

Application and who is eligible?

We are inviting students from all over the world. If you want to know, if you are eligible for the program, please check the list on Application.

When exactly in 2022?

We are glad to welcome you in our research center from July until September 2022.
