The background
Ecology is a fascinating science. The complex nature of ecosystems is a main challenge for researchers worldwide, and a better understanding of ecosystems is urgently needed to cope with global change. If we aim to understand what ecosystems are and how they operate, we have to dig deep, and if we dig very deep, we will find molecules with particular functions. These molecules are eventually responsible for the reactions of a cell, a tissue, an organism or even an ecosystem ultimately leading to environmental change. (read more…)

The programme
The goals of this new B.Sc. course are ambitious: young students will learn modern methods, both in ecology and in molecular (bio-)sciences. They will be exposed to the most recent developments in both fields in a very early phase of their studies, and they will become involved in research activities of leading research teams in their respective fields.

The lecturers
The expertise of the lecturers teaching Molecular Ecosystem Sciences covers a broad field in natural sciences. Courses are designed and conducted by experienced professors and senior lecturers with the idea to base teaching on their own research experience. (read more…)

Graduates of this research-based study programme will have gained a solid basis to work in the fields of environmental ecology, molecular biology and conservation. The pace of global change leaves little doubt that their knowledge will be urgently needed. (read more…)
