Faculty of Science

We strengthen internationally high-level, impactful basic research that requires long-term commitment and also functions as the basis of our education and co-operation with other fields.


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


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.


We participate actively in various international and national research, education and infrastructure networks.
