High School and Undergraduate Research Programme (URP)
- Diploma and Undergraduate Trainee students:
- Please apply well ahead of time and describe in your coverletter how your stay will benefit your career and what your long-term goals are.
- For our scientists we provide an excellent scientific education and an extensive support:
1.) Diploma and other Undergraduate Trainee students will present their latest results in the weekly group meetings within each research group.
2.) Our weekly departmental seminars are excellent opportunities to exchange experimental, scientific and methodical/technical knowledge in a broad field of research.
3.) Every Friday, we have our Journal Club, where one scientist presents a recent paper of general interest for the co-workers in the department. A Press Release written by the presentor summarizes the impact of the paper.
