About the Course

During the master thesis work you will explore and analyze a topic within ecotoxicology in depth. The course is designed as an individual project under the direct supervision of a senior scientist in the area and as a member of his or her research team. You will plan the specific study in collaboration with your supervisor, implement the experiments, analyze the resulting data, and finally report the project in writing and in an oral defense. The project work can be fully or partly conducted externally, i.e. with industry, regulatory authorities or research institutes outside the University. However, the master project needs to be established at the University of Gothenburg, i.e. you need to have an examiner from the University. The program coordinator should be informed prior to the start of the master thesis work.
