Placement projects

We have compiled a list of all projects available for summer 2024. Please contact the named Supervisors if you would like more information about these projects.

All projects relate to reviews or the analysis of already collected data. All internships have to comply with our University’s Research Ethics Policy and all Supervisors are aware of these requirements.

Each 4-week internship will have a defined work plan and what is to be achieved.  Although some projects will be standalone pieces of work, others will be parts of wider, more long-term studies. As long as related contributions meet journal guidelines, co-authorship may be appropriate on future publications.  These discussions should be held with the named supervisor.
