PhD and Masters Projects

Several PhD and Masters student projects are available in the area of gamma-ray astronomy at the MPIK. The divisions of Professors Jim Hinton and Werner Hofmann are working together on the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and High Energy Stereoscopic System (H.E.S.S.) very high energy gamma-ray telescope systems. Opportunities include development and evaluation of camera hardware, data analysis, and simulations for CTA, and data analysis and scientific exploitation of H.E.S.S. phase-2, including associated multi-wavelength and multi-messenger activities.

Please contact Dr Dan Parsons ( daniel.parsons(at)mpi-hd.mpg.de) for more details.
