For students

​As a student at the lab you will learn the basic skills required to carry out our research, and all scientific work you do results in a scientific article. Read more about the different options and available student projects here.​

​As a student in our laboratory, you have several choices. Some participate​​ primarily in smaller projects, which can be done in your spare time. Others take part in larger projects, such as ​​thesis projects financed according to agreement ​​or by a scholarship of 6 to 12 months. All scientific work should result in a scientific article. Continued research may later lead to a Ph.D.

In the laboratory, you will be trained in the basic skills required to do our research including stereology, histological laboratory work, data collection, writing articles, etc.

Additionally, you get the opportunity to participate in conferences and scientific meetings​​​​ both domestic and abroad.

Our students are primarily medical or biology students, but other specialists, such as engineers, veterinarians, medical staff etc., are of course also welcome.​

Please contact us for more information or if you have a good idea for a research project.

Available student projects at the Research Laboratory:​

Master thesis project within skizophrenia research - start spring 2018:

The project is centred on the study of endophenotypic biomarkers, such us structural alterations, dendritic density and dopamine receptor binding levels in a congenital rodent model for schizophrenia-like behaviour (click here for more information).

Comparative study of the mammalian brain​:

As part of our comparative studies, we want to know the number of the neo cortical neurons in higher primates. The material consists of two chimpanzee brains and one orangutang brain. The results will be included in a comparison with several other mammalian brains.​​
