AFI-31306: Life History of Aquatic Organisms.
Thesis and internship at AFI
At the Aquaculture and Fisheries Group a multitude of aspects on fish biology are studied. This can entail all organisation levels, from cell physiology to organismal biology and ecology. The individual research project aims at students applying and expanding their knowledge and skills. Mostly this will be in the context of supporting an ongoing research project, e.g. by performing a literature review, analysing an existing dataset, or carrying out specific lab work. It could also consist of drafting a scientific publication from already existing research reports. For an overview of potential projects please check the Aquaculture and Fisheries webpage. The planning of a short research project is flexible, and is not necessarily restricted to a specific period. All research projects will result in a report.
After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- execute a designated research project provided by the supervisors;
- analyse the results from the research project and evaluate it in the context of existing knowledge;
- write a scientific report or draft publication based on original or existing research.
- literature study, data analysis, or performing lab work;
- writing a research report or draft publication.
Evaluation of the written material and performance during the short research project following a rubric that will be made available at the start of the project.
This will be provided at the start of the project.
