Do your student project at DynaMo!

We are seeking highly motivated and engaged students to do their thesis work within cellular and organismal biology at DynaMo Center. Both Danish and foreign students are encouraged to apply.

At DynaMo Center we offer you an active and international study environment including weekly group meetings and access to our international seminar series with invited speakers leading in their field. In return we expect that you display your full potential through strong drive and discipline throughout the research project. You will be an integrated part of the center.

Below can find some available projects, but you are also welcome to present us your own ideas. The proposed projects are made by center researchers and are issues and challenges to which we are looking for answers and for students to help finding them.

We welcome applications for MSc projects, BSc projects and from interns from abroad.
