We offer opportunities for BSc and MSc theses in the fields of soil physics, biophysics, soil-plant interactions, and modeling Soil-Plant-Atmosphere systems. We are particularly interested in comparing experimental observations, whether direct or indirect, with theoretical predictions. If necessary, we encourage the development of new theories, especially in MSc theses. Specific topics are listed below, but we also welcome your own ideas and hypotheses.
Interested students are invited to attend a meeting where topics are discussed, and expectations are clarified. Subsequently, students draft a thesis contract, and its contents are discussed and agreed upon with the supervisor(s). An example of a contract can be found here.
If you are interested please contact Efstathios Diamantopoulos.
