Aim: The students will acquire a comprehensive experimental and methodological knowledge in scientific handling of current animal Ecology and tropical Biology research questions. They will be qualified to conduct scientific work, perform statistical analysis and interpretation. The acquired knowledge qualifies students for independent scientific activities as part of the master thesis.

Content

In F2 internship, student will work on one scientific question as independent as possible. It includes the development of hypothesis, preparation of a work plan, and implementation of data collection, experiment in the field, green house or laboratory, and statistical analysis of the data. The result will be presented in a protocol, which resembles the form and content of a short scientific paper with introduction, material and method, results and discussions. The result will be presented in the final seminar.In the various working groups of the department of animal Ecology and tropical Biology, there are many possibilities to conduct a F2 internship in Germany, Europe or in the tropics. They can be carried out in an ongoing research project of the institute or in cooperation with other institutions. For more detailed information on the implementation of the F2 internship, as well as the current topic vacancies and discussion appointments, you can find them on WueCampus.
