Introduction to geomicrobiology, 7.5 credits

About the education

The course combines current knowledge of geological processes and microbial mechanisms as they determine(d) Earth evolution. The course includes a review of biological processes that are important in biogeochemistry of element cycling and in microbe-mineral interactions, as well as the major geomicrobiological processes shaping the Earth through geological time (e.g., microbialite formation, hydrothermal vent functioning, travertine precipitation, evolution of the atmosphere).

Area of interest: Science and Mathematics

Science and mathematics help us understand how the world around us is connected – from the origin and structure of the universe, to the development and function of humanity and all other organisms on earth.

Scientific knowledge makes it possible to critically examine the credibility of information in different areas of everyday life, society, and the media.

As a scientist or mathematician, you will be attractive on a large job market that covers all parts of society and includes everything from pure technology companies to environment and healthcare, as well as research.
