Interested 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 wide range of research topics for your Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis:

Detector Development: Work hands-on prototypes, testing and studying new concepts, hardware, structures or electronics and test beam analysis.

  • TPC: The group does research towards a time projection chamber (TPC), a gas based tracking detector at the ILC.
  • HCal: The group investigates several concepts of calorimetry at the ILC with a special focus on hadron calorimetry.

Software & Analysis: Design software for a better description of our virtual detector or do our own analysis within the ILC physics program.

  • ILC Software: Development of analysis and reconstruction software for the ILC.
  • ILC Physics: Physics at the ILC and its influence on detector design and detector optimization.

Machine-Detector Interface:

  • FLC Polarimetry Group: The group researches the effects and technical realization of polarization at the ILC.

Hands-on Week

If you are interested in our field, but you want to get to know us and our work before you decide for a topic, you have the possibility to join us for a week or two. Just contact Ties Behnke for a chat about your visions. We are happy about everybody, who is interested.
