The Department of Geological Sciences employs around 70 researchers, doctoral students, technical and administrative staff. The head of the department is responsible for all activities at the department, assisted by the deputy head of department, the head of administration and the directors of studies.

Student representation in the running of the department occurs through a subject council that is open to students at undergraduate and advanced level from all subjects within the faculty of science, as well as a doctoral student council for the department's doctoral students. Both of these councils are represented on the department board. The handling of financial and personnel matters for the entire department is handled by the head of administration, together with the department's personnel and financial officers.
