Working with us



It is always possible to conduct a Master project at the Konrad Lorenz Research Station. Most students come from the University of Vienna, but students from other universities are welcome. A three-week practical training at the Research Station prior to the start of a Master project is mandatory. If you are interested in a master project at the Konrad Lorenz Research Station, please contact us.
