Scientific Internships within the department movement science

For all questions concerning the scientific internship, please contact Cassandra Kraaijenbrink!

Procedure for the internship at our department:

1.    Think of your research interest
The first step for your internship lies with you as student.
What do you want to do? What are your interests? Where do you want to go for your internship?

2.    Check out our homepage (Research)
Here you can find the different research topics of our Post Docs, all the projects we are involved in and our publications. Does this fit with your interests as established in step 1?

3.    Apply for department movement science (Motivation letter + CV)
In case it is a fit, apply for our department by sending your motivation letter and curriculum vitae to Cassandra Kraaijenbrink before December 7 (BSc).

4.    Meeting to find contact for internship and supervisor in department
After you have send your application to the department, we will check if it is the right fit for you. We will thereafter contact you to come by for a meeting to select your research topic and find the according internship location. This can be one of our contacts, but we encourage you to find some options yourself as well. Since you need a supervisor from our department, we should discuss your options before taking action. After we established a research topic/location, you will be assigned to a supervisor within our department.

5.    Meeting with supervisor in department
The last step is to discuss your scientific internship with your supervisor. From this moment on, this person is your contact person within our department.

The research facilities we cooperate with are mostly located within Europe.
