We gladly share our passion for understanding interactions between plants and microorganisms, as well as microbial interactions in agricultural ecosystems. We thrive on interacting with bachelor, master and postgraduate students. Their diverse background, enthusiasm and interests strongly motivate the teaching and technical support staff in the department.
Theses and internships
Towards the end of the curriculum, every student will perform at least one major thesis project (within Wageningen University), and in addition either a second (minor) thesis, an internship or a research practice project. Internship and research practice projects are performed outside WU, under guidance of a WU staff member who acts as examiner.
The goal of a thesis project or internship is to train your scientific skills in analysis and problem solving. It gives you the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and insight for a specific area of research.
If you are interested in a thesis project or internship, please contact Sander Schouten or Jan van Kan once you have an idea of your interests.
