Dean, Distinguished Lecturer of Biochemistry and Cell Biology


The School of Science provides an international and multidisciplinary environment for researchers in the natural sciences and mathematics. From numbers and quanta, molecules, and cells, to oceans and planets - cutting edge research in mathematics, physics and chemistry, the life- and geosciences advances our knowledge, addresses global problems, and creates new technology.

Below you find the overview of our faculty including the professors with research field as well as lecturers with their main field of teachingour adjunct staff, PhD students, and researchers (soon), and the programs offered by the school.
