About

The Biology - Nabis - Nordic Master in Biodiversity and Systematics program from Uppsala University 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.

Overview

At the Biology - Nabis - Nordic Master in Biodiversity and Systematics program from Uppsala University 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.

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.

Career

NABiS - Nordic Master in Biodiversity and Systematics, has two informal tracks. One is directed for you who are interested in a career as nature conservation manager, officer at governmental agencies or non-governmental organisations (such as World Wildlife Foundation, Nature Conservation Organisations), manager of biodiversity infrastructures, or working with inventory of wildlife. The other is for you who want to pursue an academic career as researcher or museum curator.

Our graduates work at, for example, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency, the County Administrative Board of Västra Götaland and Natural History Museum of Oslo. Job titles include land manager, technician and PhD student.
