Research Projects for Students

Available research projects for junior and senior students

update 15.10.2020: Most of the openings for senior theses announced earlier in the semester are now filled. For the moment, we are still accepting applications, especially for those in collaboration with fellow researchers. Check them in the link below after you have filled in this application.

For several years now we welcome first- or second-year students to join us for a minor (or major!) research project: see how you can work with our group. Also, if you enjoy coding (python, R, C/C++, bash etc) we have plenty of projects you can help with.

For details of available projects, navigate here: NuSTRAP Group

We focus on:

[fundamental nuclear physics]

  • Structure of exotic isotopes (measurements of lifetimes, E/M moments)
  • Nuclear astrophysics: exploring the explosive stellar factories
  • Nuclear data (emphasis on nuclear moments, radii and masses)
  • Testing critical symmetries in nuclei

[Detector & accelerator physics]

  • Simulations of radiation detector setups (using specialized codes, such as MCNP and GEANT4)
  • Upgrade and development of new experimental contrivances for nuclear studies
  • Electronic circuit units for data handling and acquisition

[Radiation for the environment]

  • Probing biosphere processes via environmental radioactivity studies
  • Monitoring and analyzing volcanic activity
  • Machine-learning methods to assess natural hazards

[Education, Science Communication and Outreach]

  • Mobile apps development for nuclear data
  • Building interactive nuclear physics simulations for educational purposes
  • Web development of Nuclear Physics history
