Bachelor and Master Thesis Projects

Our institute supervises a considerable number of Bachelor and Master students within their final year projects. It is our aim to provide a good supervision and to give out manageable topics. If successful, students may contribute to publications or receive authorships.

Examples hereof are:

Bachelor Projects

Specifically within the summer semester, places for final year Bachelor projects can be very competitive. To structure admission we will publish calls for Bachelor Projects on the homepage of the Department of Biology
Calls will be published usually in May and November for places in the following semester.

Master Projects

Further requests for Master projects can be submitted at any time to Prof. Marcus Fändrich.

It is generally advisable to supplement an application with a one page CV, a transcript of records from the Bachelor course and a brief statement of the research activity of our institute that would be of particular interest to you.
