BSc and MSc theses

Theses in our lab

Currently, there are a number of projects available in our lab. All are on insects. Other topics are possible, if you can convince us that the topic is scientifically interesting. A thesis in our lab works like that: We first agree about a topic. Then you will read some papers on the topic, and summarize in writing what you’ve learned. You will get feedback on your write-up. Then likely revise your writing. Then you will think about a cool experiment to address your topic, and present the idea for the experiment to the lab. You will get feedback and can start your thesis work, fully supervised.
