Student Opportunities

To interested students we offer the opportunity to participate in research activities in our department. This possibility is open for undergraduate as well as graduate students in biology and also for students from other disciplines such as mathematics, statistics, computer science, or philosophy. In addition we offer internships for students or researchers from other institutions. 

Students may contact us for opportunities to conduct a master thesis or Ph.D. thesis in one of the following fields:

3D imaging in developmental biology, biometrics and morphometrics, theoretical and experimental approaches to EvoDevo, theoretical and computational anatomy, evolutionary theory, philosophy of biology.
