The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung is one of the world’s leading laboratories for fundamental research with accelerated ions. The center provides unique research opportunities for investigations in the fields of nuclear and hadron physics, atomic, laser and plasma physics, materials science and biophysics with applications in cancer therapy, as well as new accelerator developments and radiation safety. Every summer the centre invites students in physics or related natural science disciplines from Europe or GSI/FAIR partner countries to participate in an International Student Program. Since last year the program is integrated into the education canon of GSI's graduate school, the Helmholtz Graduate School for Hadron and Ion Research (HGS-HIRe for FAIR).

Please note that applications and recommendations must reach us before February 15, 2011. Learn more and apply now! http://hgs-hire.de/summer-program/
