The second part of the second year of the research master’s programme is devoted to conducting a research internship. As a result of the many international research contacts that faculty members have established, a substantial number of students will conduct their research internship abroad. Students start their internship with the writing of a research proposal. Students finish the master’s programme by writing a thesis based on their internship research project. The internship can be undertaken at Maastricht University or at external research institutes. In all cases, a student’s research proposal and master’s thesis will be evaluated by two assessors. At least one of these assessors must be a member of the Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience (FPN), the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), or the School of Business and Economics (NE). Both assessors need to have a PhD degree. A detailed guide on research internships and the master’s thesis can be found on EleUM > Students Research Master Faculty of Psychology and Neuroscience > internships. - RM Cognitive Neuroscience Internships Coordinator: Amanda Kaas, Cognitive Neuroscience (FPN), Phone: (0)43 38 82172, 55 Oxfordlaan, Room 2.019, Email: email@example.com - RM Neuroeconomics Internships Coordinator: Amanda Kaas, Cognitive Neuroscience (FPN), Phone: (0)43 38 82172, 55 Oxfordlaan, Room 2.019, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org - RM Fundamental Neuroscience Internships Coordinator: Pilar Martinez, Psychiatry and Neuropsychology (FHML), Phone: (0)43 38 81042, 50 Universiteitssingel West, Room 1.112, Email: email@example.com - RM Neuropsychology Internships Coordinator: Caroline van Heugten, Neuropsychology and Psychopharmacology (FPN), Phone (043) 38 84213, 40 Universiteitssingel East, Room 2.736, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org - RM Psychopathology Internships Coordinator: Nicole Geschwind, Clinical Psychological Science (FPN), Phone (043) 38 81487, 40 Universiteitssingel East, Room 2.767, Email: Nicole.email@example.com
