Internships

Students can visit our lab to perform mandatory internships at any time. Interns can learn a multitude of methods in ecology with particular focus on soil ecology. Interns can learn how to ask scientific questions, to design respective experiments, to conduct experiments in the field or in the lab, and to analyze the data with statistical methods. Please send applications to Dr. Simone Cesarz.
