Internships For High-School Students

In order to get a glimpse into the life of a researcher, the Department of Physics and Material Science is organizing observational internships for high school students during school holidays, where they get to shadow an experienced researcher (typically a PhD student or a postdoc) and observe their daily tasks and experiments.

We currently offer four different internships:


Internship 1, 31.7-4.8.2023

-        Topics: A taste of research in experimental and theoretical physics

-        Places: max. 2

-        Participating research groups: Physics of Advanced Materials, Multifunctional Ferroic Materials, Theory of Mesoscopic Quantum System

-        Application deadline: 31.5.2023


Internship 2, 28.8-8.9.2023

-        Topics: laser physics and ultrafast phenomena

-        Places: max. 3

-        Participating research group: Ultrafast Condensed Matter Physics

-        Application deadline 28.6.2023


Internship 3, 30.10-3.11.2023

-        Topics: soft matter physics

-        Places: 2

-        Participating research group: Experimental Soft Matter Physics

-        Application deadline: 30.8.2023


Internship 4, 30.10-3.11.2022

-        Topics: solar cells

-        Places: max 3

-        Participating research groups: Laboratory for Photovoltaics,  Laboratory for Energy Materials , Scanning Probe Microscopy Laboratory

-        Application deadline 30.8.2023


If you are interested, please send your CV, a motivation letter as to why you are interested in physics or materials science and transcript of your grades to Please also indicate and explain which internship(s) you would be interested in (1, 2…?). We will consider your application carefully and carry out a selection process. If you are selected, you will receive more detailed instructions from us.
