Degree projects and research training

Feel free to contact any of us to ask about proposals for degree project or to discuss your own ideas about a project. A good start is to look at the research at our subdepartments and research groups and then contact the researcher directly. At the master's level, it is often useful to start with a research training, during which you work in one of our research groups and participate in the daily activities, in the field, in the lab and at seminars. Meanwhile, you can develop ideas for your thesis.
