organisation profile

The Faculty of Science is a leading centre of academic research and education with a broad range of strong research groups. The research and educational activities are organised in one comprehensive faculty. This is motivated by developments in both science and society, with new challenges often found in the overlap of several disciplines. It has led to a policy in which the faculty is setting up new research institutes across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

The Faculty of Science consists of four departments with 1200 researchers and lecturers, including 150 full- and part-time professors operating in ten research institutes.

The Zoological Museum curates more than 13 million animal specimens with special strengths in the South East Asian and South American/ Caribbean fauna, as well as in the marine fauna.

The museum's mission is to maintain and develop its collections and to manage these as a facility for scientific research and public education.

Research in the ZMA is linked to the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics, IBED.
