General information for first year students concerning the internship for thesis

Dear Students,

please visit the webpage MBG_website>Courses>Documents and download the file at the section “General information”. Read this file carefully because it contains important information concerning the internship for thesis, supervisor and co-supervisor, the application for graduation and thesis preparation. 

IMPORTANT: during the two years, students carry out an "INTERNATO DI TESI", NOT a "tirocinio". 

At the following websites you will find a list of laboratories where you can look for a position for your internship:

The student that is about to start the internship for thesis must send to mbg@unipv.it the name of the head of the laboratory and a brief description of the research topic.

Students who want to carry out their internship in institutions other than the Dipartimento di Biologia e Biotecnologie or IGM-CNR (such as Dipartimento di Medicina Molecolare, Policlinico San Matteo, Fondazione Mondino or Fondazione Salvatore Maugeri or other institutions) must ask for the approval of the Coordinator of the Master Programme. The Laboratory head must contact the Coordinator of the MBG course and describe the subject of the research that will be carried out by the MBG student. The coordinator of the MBG course will make sure that the laboratory head is aware of the requirements and regulation of the MBG course regarding the internship, thesis preparation and defense.

If the head of the Laboratory in which the student will carry out his thesis is not part of the Biology or Biotechnology study programmes, the student must find a “co-supervisor” from the above-mentioned study programmes. Thus, to attend some of the laboratories in the IGM-CNR, Dipartimento di Medicina Molecolare, or external institutions, students must find a co-supervisor.

Students that want to attend a laboratory in an external institution must fill the “Authorization to begin the internship for thesis in a laboratory external to the University of Pavia” that is required to activate the appropriate insurance ( http://mbg.unipv.it/?pagina=p&id=79 ). Please fill the form and deliver it to the Student Secretariat, AND send a copy to mbg@unipv.it . The Student Secretariat will take care of the procedures required to activate your insurance.
