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 scienteens.physics@uni.lu. 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.
