Teaching

CELS is at present (i.e. 2022/23) involved in teaching the following courses:

Exoplanets & Astrobiology

A graduate course (MSc and PhD) about how the complexity of matter has evolved from its simplest forms during Big Bang to the rise of intelligent life. The course goes through how the first elements originated during the Big Bang, how processing through generations of stars lead to gas and dust that formed the building blocks of the first planetary systems, and how this eventually lead to the diversity of exoplanets we see today. Was it only on one of these systems where the conditions for origin and evolution of life was present, or do the 10 billion Earth-like exoplanets in our Galaxy all team with a diversity of life forms?. We go through the evolution of life on Earth, explore the odds for life on other planets, and conclude with odds for finding intelligent life elsewhere in space.

Complex Physics

A graduate course on rephrasing a complex phenomenon into a mathematical equation or computer algorithm.

Astrophysics and Cosmology (in Danish)

This is a broad bachelor course about planets, stars, and galaxies. We teach the part about the history of science, about our solar system, and about exoplanets.

Basic Arctic Biology (in Danish)

This is a bachelor course introducing the students to life and conditions for life in the Arctic. We teach about the conditions for microbial life in Arctic soils and about microorganisms in permafrost.

Arctic Biology

This is a master course providing the students a deep understanding of life in the Arctic and how Arctic ecosystems are structured and respond to environmental drivers. We teach on the distribution of Arctic soil microorganisms and how these organisms have adapted to life at low temperature.
