We always encourage students to apply for a thesis or an internship and are open for projects that fit to the general topics of this department. If there is no call for a student position of your interest, please contact a scientist or PhD student for further information.
Internship / Thesis: Effects of pesticide mixtures on non-target organisms - Analysis of application patterns
Pesticides affect non-target species often as mixtures due to their applications and pathways, but relevant application patterns of pesticides in agriculture are hardly investigated. Such patterns are crucial for predicting pesticide effects on non-target organisms under field conditions
Motivated students with a background in Biology, Geoecology, Chemistry, Environmental sciences or similar subjects. Basic knowledge in handling and processing large data sets are an advantage. Willingness to work independently and to develop ideas. Proficient knowledge of English

Internship / Thesis: Linking exposure to pesticides with community effects in streams, a meta-analysis
For further information please contact Matthias Liess
Internship / Thesis: The impact of land use and forest patches on fresh water organisms
Applying ArcGIS to construct a continuous stream network and to assess the impact of land use and forest patches on fresh water organisms at the german scale.
Internship: Multiple stressors and freshwater macroinvertebrates
Applying toxicity tests to study the effects of co-occurence of neonicotinoid exposure and food limitation on mosquito larvae.
