Students - Research projects


Within the Leiden Parasite Diagnostics Group (ParaDiag) are several possibilities for students to do a research traineeship in the laboratory and/or in the field. We offer internships for Bc and MSc students who study medicine, biomedical sciences, (medical) biology or health sciences or to those who study laboratory sciences at the HBO/Polytechnic. PhD places and/or post-doc positions for international students are only available as part of existing international research project or in case external funding is guaranteed.

For actual information about traineeship possibilities within the research projects of the ParaDiag Group contact Dr. Lisette van Lieshout
