Bachelor, Master and PhD projects

You can work on your bachelor or master thesis at the institute; a list of potential supervisors having teaching responsibilities at one of the universities in the Berlin-Potsdam region is given below. The cooperation with Potsdam University is very close; arrangements can be made for students from Berlin Universities. For a list of current job openings (including PhD jobs) see here.
