The multitude of organisms living on our planet and the evolutionary relationships among them are in focus for the students in the Nordic Master in Biodiversity and Systematics (NABiS). With molecular tools and morphological observations, new species are continuously identified and their relationship to other organisms is inferred. With this we can ask fundamental questions about evolution, biogeography and origins of diversity.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
NABiS is a cooperative programme hosted by six universities in Sweden and Norway. Each university offers courses where it has specialist competence, both regarding organismal groups, but also in theoretical and analytical aspects. Combining courses, largely web-based but combined with intense field sessions, at different universities leads to a top-quality Master in systematics and taxonomy.
Far from all organisms have been discovered and described, and among the organisms we know, evolutionary relationships are in many case still in need of studies. In this specialisation, students are trained to gain the systematic, taxonomic and analytical expertise as well as the bioinformatics tools needed in our society to be able to understand and take action against the loss of biodiversity.
You will also have an extensive professional network consisting of fellow students and professors at the collaborating universities in the Scandinavian countries after completing the programme.
University of Gothenburg (Sweden), Stockholm University (Sweden), Uppsala University (Sweden), Lund University (Sweden), University of Oslo (Norway), Norwegian University of Science and Technology (Norway).
You have a broad interest in biology or a more narrowly focused interest in a specific sub-area. Either way, you are willing to take a lot of responsibility yourself to form your own educational experience from the very wide range of biology courses offered at the different universities.
Ideally, during your Bachelor’s degree, you had the opportunity to work in a laboratory and do some field work as well as use statistics to analyse data from your work. Writing lab reports and shorter essays is something you already have experience doing.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value coming in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in this international field.
The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Biology as the main field of study.
