For students

We are always looking for students who want to do their master thesis, bachelor-, or independent project supervised by our center researchers. We welcome students with their own ideas but are also keen to help with suggestions on relevant and interesting topics within the research and teaching areas of the center.

On this website you will find a wide range of ideas for projects within the different research areas of the center. The ideas are all proposed by center researchers, and are issues and challenges to which we are looking for answers and students to help finding them.

Currently, we have a specific interest in projects which focus on conservation and field biology in Denmark. We have a close cooperation with the Aage V. Jensen Foundation, the largest private land owner in Denmark, which are very interested in conservation studies performed at their many Danish nature reserves.

If you are interested in doing a project with one of the researchers from the Centre please, beforehand give some thought to:

  • What areas of interest do you have within biology and how this translates to topics within the Centre's scopes?
  • What are your objectives for the project, both personal and academic?
  • Which academic and technical proficiencies are needed to complete the project?
  • What kind of skills do you expect to learn during the process?

Following this, we ask that you, before meeting with one of us, send us an e-mail with a one page CV including a list of subjects and courses relevant for the project and a maximum one page description of your ideas and motivation for doing the project.

This is not to discourage you from doing a project at the center but to insure that you have given some thought to what you want and what interests you. For more general information on projects and expectations please contact Anders Tøttrup (
