FAPS Research Master

Research Master Logo

Above-average students, who have already written a student thesis at the chair FAPS, can apply for the position of Research Master.

Within the framework of the Research Master, students are offered an early entry into a scientific career. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to begin work as a Research Associate at the FAPS Chair upon succesfull completion of their Masters.

With the Research Master, the introduction to research work already takes place during the final thesis. Research Masters start working on their research topic during their Master’s thesis. Young scientists are supported by their future colleagues, who help the student to get used to the daily scientific routine.

Participation in internal social events, as well as networking with other students and research assistants, supports the integration into the new working world.

Application for the Research Master is possible after the completion of a project thesis with a very good grade and with the recommendation by the supervisor. For more information, please contact your supervisor at FAPS.
