This year, around 100 students started the International Master in Marine Biological Resources (http://imbrsea.eu/), the follow-up of EMBC+. In the programme, students are obliged to do a thesis in the spring of 2019. With this call for thesis lines, students will have to conduct thesis work in their fourth semester. Interested institutes should propose suitable research thesis lines within their institute. A research line is considered as a broad research field in which you would be willing to accept students for specific thesis projects.
A research line is considered as a broad research field in which you would be willing to accept students for specific studies. Based on the research lines, students will contact the relevant individuals within their institute to negotiate an actual topic. The thesis can be developed, such as the beginning of the literature review, in the early stages of 2018, during the second and third semesters, provided it does not interfere with the students' other work. The students will be encouraged to organize their thesis work in a way that enables them to submit the thesis in the first session exam period (June 2019). Only with motivated exceptions is thesis submission possible in August 2019.
IMBRSea are looking for a broad range of research lines from the field of academic marine research, industry, governmental and non-governmental organisations.
