Bachelor and Master’s Thesis
I am happy to work with you on your Bachelor’s or Master’s Thesis. If you are from the University of Stuttgart and student of Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung, Computational Linguistics, Media Informatics, Digital Humanities, Computer Science, Informatik, Data Science, Software Engineering, that’s pretty straight-forward: Please read this. A list of topics currently offered at the Institute for Natural Language Processing, including topics I offer to M.Sc. and B.Sc. students is available here.
- Information what is expected from a proposal
- How to find a thesis topic and how to start
- Checklist while writing/before submitting a thesis
- What I take into account when grading
If you are interested in working with me, please contact me early.
External Theses and Internships
If you are from another University and would like to come to Stuttgart for your thesis, that might also be possible. However, we do not offer any funding in such cases, you either need to fund yourself or have a scholarship, for instance from DAAD. When you contact me for a supervision as an intern or for a thesis while being enrolled in a different university, please put EXTERNALSTUDENT in the subject of your email and state clearly that you understood that you might need to enroll as freemover in Stuttgart if you plan to get credit points from classes in Stuttgart and that you fund yourself. Alternatively, state clearly that you are funded by a scholarship and which one that is. If you do not do that, I might not answer your email.
I am fully booked with B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses supervision until 04/2023. I can only make exceptions if you come with your thesis idea which fits into a currently ongoing research project. If you have a suggestion that fits very well into recent publications I wrote, please contact me and briefly describe your idea. Note that the topics mentioned in the Ilias list fall into this category as well.
Are you interested in writing your Ph.D. thesis with me? That’s great! However, please do only ask for a Ph.D. position if we posted a call for applications (typically on the IMS website, in social media and in mailing lists) which is still open, if you have a scholarship which funds you or if you plan to work with us as an external student, self-funded. Please clearly explain your situation in your mail. Please put PHDSTUDENT in the subject of your mail.
