MASTER POSITIONS

The below list is incomplete both in terms of available project options as well as if projects are filled or not. Note that normally a good project can be found in discussion with potential Masters candidates, hence send your CV and transcripts and an indication what you would ideally like to do. Then we discuss what can be offered at the time.
