26.07.2016 | Summer Students at GSI and FAIR
On Monday, 25 July, this year’s Summer Student Program at GSI and FAIR started, in which 34 students from 20 countries take part. They will spend eight weeks on the campus, get to know the experiments and the research areas and get involved in the everyday working life.
Every year the Summer Student Program offers the participants a unique insight into the research at a particle accelerator. Every summer student gets the chance to work on his own scientific or technical project within the current GSI and FAIR experiments. The topics range from accelerator science to tumor therapy and astrophysics. In public lectures, which are part of the program, the summer students learn about GSI and FAIR research and scientific results.
For many of the students, who come mainly from European and Asian countries, the Summer Student Program is the first step to a masters or doctorates thesis at GSI. The Summer Student Program, which takes place for the 36th time, is organized by the graduate school HGS-HIRe. Apart from the scientific program there are also social events like barbecue parties, football competition or exploring the region.
The public lectures are in English and are open to everyone. Lecture Program
