Research internship

It is possible to do a research internship at CORAL where you work in close cooperation with a researcher.

Cand.merc. student at Aarhus University

If you are enrolled as a master's student at our cand.merc. programme and would like to get a hands-on experience of what it is like to work as a researcher, you may want to try a research internship where you work in close cooperation with a researcher. The research internship is an alternative to the traditional internship (10 ECTS) where you participate in a research project with a topic of your choice (see suggested topics below). You hand in a report, which will be evaluated and graded.

Mathematics and economics student at Aarhus University

If you study mathematics and economics and would like to get a hands-on experience of what it is like to work as a researcher, you may do a project work course (10 ECTS). You will work in close cooperation with a researcher with a topic of your choice (see suggested topics below). You hand in a report, which will be evaluated and graded at an oral exam.

External bachelor or master student

Internships for external students are not possible.

Procedure

If you are interested in a research internship, please consider the suggested topics below and contact the responsible supervisor. A few rules/hints are: Only contact one researcher at a time, attach your CV and documentation of your grades.
