Stages projecten voor studenten

(Onderzoeks)stages bij Naturalis

Naturalis biedt verschillende stages aan. Zo zijn er voor studenten op zowel bachelor- als masterniveau mogelijkheden om stage te lopen bij één van onze onderzoeksgroepen. Tijdens zo'n onderzoeksstage focus je je op één onderzoeksproject, en help je een onderzoeker met het beantwoorden van één of meerdere onderzoeksvragen. Sommige van deze onderzoeksprojecten maken deel uit van een groter project, terwijl andere op zichzelf staan. Daarnaast zijn er stagemogelijkheden op het gebied van wetenschapscommunicatie en marketing.

Alle beschikbare onderzoeksprojecten staan hieronder vermeld. Helemaal onderaan vind je meer informatie over stages wetenschapscommunicatie en marketing.

Inferring hybrid zone history

Where the ranges of closely related species meet they may hybridize. The regions where this occurs are called hybrid zones. A balance of selection against hybrids and dispersal of parental species determines the width of the hybrid zone, but the…

Phylogenomics of the mustard family (Brassicaceae)

In the flowering plants, herbaceous plants have evolved into woody plants hundreds of times independently from each other during evolutionary history. With over 100 documented cases, this rigorous morphological transition is especially common in the…

It's a newt. What kind? That's the problem with cryptic species.

Phylogenomics of species radiations

In species radiations it is often not clear how many species are included, because ‘cryptic species’ are involved. Cryptic species behave as distinct species, but have gone unnoticed due to their morphological similarity. Deciphering the phylogenetic…

MtDNA barcoding invasive species

As a consequence of increasing globalization, species can reach places that were previously inaccessible. Invasive species are considered to be one of the main threats to global biodiversity. They can threaten native species with extinction via predation…
