Student Projects

Students interested in working on a project (e.g. Projektmodul, Bachelor or Master thesis) in the Theoretical Biology group are always welcome to contact us (e.g. per e-mail at

Possible topics include:

  • Adaptation of populations to seasonally fluctuating environments
  • Dominance in metabolic pathways
  • Maintenance of intraspecific chemical diversity in plants
  • Density-dependent evolution of mating systems
  • Ecological and genetic Allee effects (reduced population growth at low population density)
  • Dynamics of inbreeding depression

We are also happy to accommodate other research ideas suggested by the student.
