The purpose of this internship is to familiarize the students with the research in the high energy field. It covers both experimental research and/or research in theoretical physics. The duration of the internship is typically 4 months (starting in April) but only 3 days a week are dedicated to the internship, the students enrolled in the High Energy Physics master program attending courses the 2 other days. Consequently, the location of the internship must necessarily be in the Paris-Saclay area.

Typical topics:

  1. topics in experimental physics: Higgs physics at LHC, quarks-gluons plasma with Heavy ions physics at LHC and RHIC, neutrino physics (long and short baseline in Japon, Europe), search for new particles beyond the standard model, development of new detectors or accelerators, cosmic rays physics (with spatial or ground experiments), astrophysics (structure of galaxy, black holes etc) etc...
  2. topics in theoretical physics: phenomenology of the standard model for current experiments (electroweak theory and Higgs physics, quantum chromodynamics), phenomenology beyond the standard model (supersymmetry, extra-dimensions, dark matter etc...), formal developments in field theory and string theory, astroparticle physics, primordial Universe etc...

ECTS credits: 18 for master students
