A number of opportunities for internships and thesis projects for MSc students are listed below. Moreover, if you have a specific interest or you want to explore NIOZ research, you can browse the webpages of our research departments: Estuarine & Delta Systems, Coastal Systems, Ocean Systems and Marine Microbiology & Biogeochemistry. Please contact linked scientists directly to inquire about possibilities for an internship or graduation project (please include your c.v.).
