Diversity of Interests


The interests of our staff span a remarkable breadth, from microbes to mammals and from molecular interactions to behavior. We also maintain close links with other research groups in the department: Environmental Biology and Ecology, Microbiology and Biotechnology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, Physiology and Cell Biology, Plant Biology. The more than 60 academic staff, 100 M.Sc. students, and 100 Ph.D. students in our department have much to offer.

One of the many opportunities for interaction is the graduate course "Current Problems in Systematics and Evolution," which meets weekly during winter term. Join an exciting learning environment where your research challenges can be shared with people having similar interests, as well as with others having quite different perspectives.
