Research internships for undergraduate students

Research internships for undergraduate students

CEPLAS awards fellowships to undergraduate students in Cologne and Düsseldorf to foster 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 math, physics or computer science but interest in plant biology are highly welcome to join one of the interdisciplinary CEPLAS groups.
