The DESY research centre is one of the world’s leading facilities for building and operating large particle accelerators. DESY and Universität Hamburg have closely collaborated on accelerator research for decades now. Together, the two partners develop new technologies and study accelerator physics at existing facilities. The partnership has led to the creation of the new Voss-Wideröe Centre for Accelerators. Current research topics include ring accelerators for synchrotron radiation sources, electron sources with pulse lengths in the attosecond to femtosecond range, new types of plasma accelerators and superconducting linear accelerators for free-electron lasers and particle physics colliders. Postgraduate positions are offered for doctoral candidates working on accelerator theory and on numerous experimental topics.
