Important Note:

Our research group is at the moment not able to provide financial support for summer internships (e.g. 3 month summer internship as required by some curricula). Please apply only for short-term internships, if you are either able to provide your own funding or can obtain a scholarship from a funding organization like DAAD, etc.

Nevertheless, we are generally interested in working with visiting research students if funding issues are solved.
