Faculty of Science
Our research strengths are
- Regional change and people in a changing environment
- The Sun and the Earth’s near-space system, space weather and climate change
- Bayesian data analysis and mathematical analysis
- Ecology and genetics
- Galaxies and high-energy astrophysics
- Quantum and molecular phenomena, computational and AI-based process modeling
Ecology and Genetics
Research in community, population, evolutionary and behavioural ecology, conservation, population and ecological genetics and genomics, biodiversity genomics and DNA-barcoding, ancient-DNA and domestication studies and improvement of natural resources
Geography studies natural and societal processes, their interactions, and changing human-environment relations both locally and globally.
Research Unit of Mathematical Sciences conducts high-level scientific research and provides quality teaching.
Nano and Molecular Systems Research Unit
NANOMO is international and dynamic research unit with wide range of research from atmospheric research to functional nanomaterial, quantum level theory and biomedical physics.
NMR Research Unit
We develop and apply modern experimental and first principles computational NMR methods for studying physical properties of molecules and nanomaterials.
Space Physics and Astronomy
Space physics is a field of science that studies the Sun, the solar wind, heliosphere and the planetary magnetospheres and upper atmospheres within the Solar system. The goal of Astronomy is to describe and understand the Universe as a whole.
Our education and doctoral training are based on strong basic research. We develop our education so that it strengthens our students’ ability to think through the lens of natural science, which prepares students for a variety of international expert and education positions.
In the Faculty of Science, you can study biology, physics, geography and mathematics.
