CEPLAS awards fellowships to undergraduate students in Cologne and Düsseldorf to raise interest of excellent and talented students in plant sciences. Each year we offer around 12 fellowships, i.e. 3-week fulltime research projects in a CEPLAS laboratory to 3rd semester B.Sc. Biology/Biochemistry students. Students with a background in mathematics, physics or computer science but interest in plant biology are highly welcome to join one of the interdisciplinary CEPLAS groups.
The students work for three weeks on a plant science topic in one of the CEPLAS working groups in Cologne, Düsseldorf or Jülich and will be supervised by a member of the respective working group. The undergraduate students get an employment contract as a student assistant covering120 hours.
The call for applications for CEPLAS research internships in 2019 will start end of 2018. Then you will find more information about the application procedure here.
