Teilnahmevoraussetzungen

A learning agreement signed by the student, the supervisor at the host institution, and the Oldenburg supervisor (from the list of examiners), needs to be submitted to the examination office prior to the start of lab work.

Module can be taken multiple times (see list of choices for each semester), however, examination of individual projects by the same supervisor is limited to EITHER two research projects (neu600 and / or neu610), OR one research project (neu600 or neu610) and the master thesis (first or second supervisor)

Kompetenzziele

++ Expt. methods

++ Independent research

++ Scient. literature

++ Social skills

+ Interdiscipl. knowlg.

++ Data present./disc.

+ Scientific English

+ Ethics

Students are introduced to independent research in a specific area of neuroscience by a scientifically working group outside of the regular MSc Neuroscience faculty at the University of Oldenburg (usually a university, research institute, clinics or scientifically working company in Germany or abroad)

Students perform individual research projects to learn:

  • planning and organization of a research project in a group outside of University of Oldenburg
  • formulate a scientific hypothesis
  • planning, performing and analyzing experiments and / or simulations
  • working with scientific background literature on the specific context of the project
  • oral presentation and discussion of backgrounds and results in the lab seminar
  • write a scientific report
  • prepare and present a scientific poster
 

 

Modulinhalte

The External Research Module is carried out under the guidance and supervision of an experienced researcher who is not part of the regular Neuroscience faculty at the University of Oldenburg. It comprises approximately 7 (minimum 5) weeks of experimental or theoretical work, individually or in small groups, and, usually, participation in a regular group seminar during that time.

After completion of the lab work, students will continue to be advised during the writing phase of the project report by the external supervisor and / or by a local Neuroscience faculty member.

The timing of projects is by individual arrangement with the supervisor.

Participation in the Stud.IP workshop on science communication (https://elearning.uni-oldenburg.de/dispatch.php/course/overview?cid=6fc0dbbfa53d7b3f5e3680f52ac7d0f7) and a poster presentation at the biology & neuroscience student poster symposium is not mandatory but highly recommended.
