Molecular Sciences at UIT the Arctic University of Norway includes the analysis of molecules at all levels, ranging from physical properties, through chemical reactivity, to interactions in larger assemblies, such as in a biological cell.
We aim for students wanting to participate in molecular studies to address the grand challenges of the future, among them: efficient use of natural resources, health and medicine, environment and climate, and global food production. Students aiming to learn how properties of molecules can explain phenomena in nature, how synthesis, discovery and analysis of new molecules can be used to design new drugs, medicine and materials with improved functionality, and how molecular studies can be used to improve health, industry and environment.
Our students have found careers as:
- pharmaceutical industry researchers, operators and analysts
- laboratory engineers at hospitals, private companies or research institutions
- aquaculture specialists
- safety, health and environment professionals
- researchers at private companies, research institutions, hospitals and universities
- Programmers, data engineers and computational modelers
