Degree projects & Internship:
In our department you have the opportunity to do independent research projects in several fields, including fish ecology, biogeochemical cycling and microbial ecology as well as landscape and water conservation. You can also follow the course Research training in Biology, where you participate in the daily activities of one of our research groups, including lab/field work, seminars etc. You are welcome to contact any of us to ask for available projects or discuss your own ideas with potential supervisors. See the research groups and our researchers at the division.

For more info about Degree projects at the Master level, see the IBG Degree project website or contact the master coordinator Anna Brunberg (Bachelor programmes are held in Swedish). More information about internship/Research training is available here. 

All education in biology at undergraduate level is administrated by the Biology Education Center (IBG). For more detailed information about biology studies at Uppsala University in general, see the IBG website.
