The Master Programme in Earth Science - Palaeobiology from Uppsala University is focused on the evolution of life with courses ranging from palaeobiological principles, through to evolution of organisms to complex vertebrate life forms. This is a mainly research-oriented specialisation, but has applications to careers in geology and the oil industry.
We try to understand how life has evolved over millions of years and how it adapted to constant changes in the environment and climate. We do this by combining traditional fossil studies with modern biological methods.
The need for Earth scientists in the labour market is increasing, primarily in the areas of environmental and natural resources, which are growing strongly, both nationally and internationally. Alumni from the Palaeobiology specialisation work largely within the scientific academy worldwide.Our graduates work at, for example, Cyient, Uppsala University and Museum for Natural History, Berlin. Job titles include Research assistant, Analyst and PhD student
