I am happy to take on the supervision of final theses if they fall within my areas of research

What I offer: Support in the development of the research design and literature research; continuous and open feedback on the written version.

What I expect: independent thinking and independent work; highest scientific accuracy and linguistic correctness.

Please note that any confirmation of supervision will only be given after a personal interview (during my office hours) and the submission of an appropriate research exposé.

For MA theses: Please prepare a short project outline containing your research question, methodological approaches and relevant literature as well as a timetable (guideline: 5 pages).

For dissertations: Please prepare a project outline that includes your research question, methodological approaches and theoretical background, relevant literature and a timetable as well as your CV (guideline: 15 pages).
