DESY, with its 2700 employees at its two locations in Hamburg and Zeuthen, is one of the world's leading research centres.
Its research focuses on decoding the structure and function of matter, from the smallest particles of the universe to the building blocks of life.
In this way, DESY contributes to solving the major questions and urgent challenges facing science, society and industry.
With its ultramodern research infrastructure, its interdisciplinary research platforms and its international networks, DESY offers a highly attractive working environment in the fields of science, technology and administration as well as for the education of highly qualified young scientists.
The particle physics programme of DESY includes strong contributions to the LHC experiments at CERN and the preparation of future experiments.
The experimental programme is enhanced by close collaboration with a strong theory group. The DESY FTX group is at the center of the preparation for future experiments covering a wide range from accelerator and detector R&D to software development and physics case studies.
The group in addition has a leading role in operating the DESY II Test Beam and the FLASHForward facility.
