Available student projects


DANDRITE Group leaders and Team leaders accept project students in neuroscience - please contact us!


The research groups at DANDRITE offer projects for Aarhus University students of different duration and level, such as MSc projects for science and molecular medicine students, "project research year" for medical students, as well as experimental course projects and BSc projects. We also offer short term projects for visiting students and ERASMUS students. 

These are general, running calls and please inquire Group leaders and Team leaders for current opportunities. Some projects are listed below. Ideas for projects are also welcomed!

Students interested in other interactions of neuroscience (e.g. mentorship on exchange programs) are also encouraged to contact us.
