Here at our department, we offer undergraduates and postgraduate students an opportunity to gain practical and theoretical knowledge necessary for shaping the future of management in our and the world's forests.
Through our courses within the Forester program's framework and free-standing courses, you can develop advanced knowledge of research areas from basic process understanding to practical silviculture and forest management.
Our teaching and research are focused mainly on boreal forest ecosystems, however, we also do research in the temperate and tropical forests of the world in the following areas:
- Forest soils
- Forest landscape biogeochemistry
- Forest vegetation ecology
- Forest ecophysiology
- Forest regeneration
- Forest History
Ph.D. opportunities and PostDoc research
If you already have higher education and are interested in researching our subject areas as a doctoral student or continuing research as a PostDoc, then contact the department or one of our subject managers.
