Interested in a Master or PhD Thesis in the field of the ILC?
We are looking for students, who want to join our research and development for the International Linear Collider.
Our group can offer a large variety of topics concerning the ILC. We are active in subgroups for TPC, HCAL and polarimeter
development as well as in physics studies, software development and ILC phenomenology. And in addition in silicon photo
multiplier (SiPM) development for an endoscopic PET.
So no matter, if you want to work hands on a prototype in the lab or rather with the PC, designing software or dealing with physics processes at the ILC, just contact out group leader Ties Behnke. He will be glad to offer you a matching project.
In order to get an idea of currently open projects you can click through the list of topics. They are ordered subgroup-wise. The associated supervisor is listed there as well.
If you want to find out more about a specific subgroup follow the links in the list on bottom of the page. But be aware, you can get lost on this pages.
