STERG internships

STERG offers internships for conducting small research projects. This includes the opportunity for foreign students to conduct final year projects or Masters projects with the research group. Co-supervision from STERG would need to be approved.

We typically seek interns in all fields relevant to our research, in particular

  • Solar optics
  • Central receiver
  • Thermal storage.

Projects can vary from theoretical and computer modeling to experimental work. We advise making contact at least three months prior to the envisaged internship date to allow for identifying a potential host and topic as well providing sufficient time for visa application (if needed).
