Hello, I am quite new to all this world of internships so I have some questions to the forum. (I have been in several CTYs, but I am afraid that these programs are way different from an internship.) The thing is that I have been searching for internships in the US/Canada, but so far I haven't found any that would agree with my schedule. I study in Germany, and we would normally finish exams in mid-july (this year we finished on 15th July) and we start in October. About the program, I'm seeking for something related with particle physics or cosmology (yeah.. I know). For instance the Fermilab, SLAC and other accelerators in the US all start the internship on june or so (hence I can't go...); then there's also the CERN internship: they actually start on 19th July (which would be ok), but it's not that I can rely on just one application –not to mention that it may be really hard to get in there, and it's better not to get my hopes up. So I would like to ask you if you know of any internship in Europe for these dates (since it seems impossible to attend to an internship during these dates in North America... even though if you are aware of any, let me know!). It doesn't need to be in an accelerator, of course, if it was some program with just lectures in some University, it would be more than fine! (actually I like lectures and colloquia better than getting into really experimental-like labs). About the economical part, I don't really know how it works for internships... I know that some of them even pay you *shrug*. I am in no way looking for getting paid but to just learning new stuff and all. I guess that if they pay you for the trans./stay/food that would be more than enough for me! Note: Now that I remember, I must clarify that even though I study in Germany my German level is really rudimentary. About other languages... I guess I could survive in French, but preferably I would take it in English. (For German students I have found http://www.daad.de/rise-programs/en/index.html" is the main website for DAAD internships if you are wondering) Any help is appreciated!
