Projekte für MSc & BSc Studierende
Bei Interesse an einer Abschlussarbeit in der Abteilung Planktonökologie wenden Sie sich bitte direkt an Elisa Schaum.
Below, we list our current BSc and MSc projects to give you an idea of the type of research that you would find yourself involved in. The list is non-exhaustive as our main projects occasionally shift between, for example, molecular and experimental approaches, and between ship- and lab-based experiments. Generally, if you are interested in how aquatic microbes rule the world and how this may change in the future, you have come to the right place.
