About the Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science consists of a lot of fundamental connections: staff members who work together across the boundaries of their own disciplines. They do so from within the departments of Biology, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Information & Computer Sciences, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. These departments consist of various institutes that together focus on important social issues. The foundations of our fundamental research are laid in our individual research groups, the building blocks of our ambitious scientific and multidisciplinary projects.
The Faculty of Science comprises 6 departments, 5 schools, 11 research institutes, more than 1.300 employees and over 6.500 students. Of course we do all our research in close collaboration with social partners and the industry.
The people that work at our faculty come from all over the world. In many cases they have been living in several different countries and have worked with people with all kinds of cultural backgrounds. How did they end up at Utrecht University? What motivated them to apply for a position here and what strikes them about Utrecht’s academic culture?
Our bright minds are ambitious and overlapping and we know that working together is the only way to connect all the dots. Among them are a Nobel prize winner, Spinoza winners and ERC grant winners. When it comes to acquiring funding, all of our scientific staff can call upon the services of the Research Support Office whose job it is to make securing funding for scientific projects easy.
