However, there are also opportunities to top up your income by working as a student laboratory or research assistant (Studentische Hilfskraft) on our research council-funded research projects. This opportunity is open to all students, though some restrictions apply to students from non EU-countries (who are limited to a total of 180 days of work per year).
