The Faculty of Science (MNF) is proud to be UZH’s second largest and fastest growing faculty.  

MNF researchers can be found among Thomson Reuter’s ranking of most influential scientific minds. Due to the intense collaborations MNF shares with UZH’s Faculty of Medicine and the University Hospitals the Faculty of Science is among the top ranked research institutions within Europe in Life Sciences. 

The Faculty is the home of the World  Glacier Monitoring Service, the Kalahari Research Centre in South Africa. The MNF is active in the Swiss Polar Institute and a number of competence centers. MNF scientists can be found doing field research in the cold tundra in Siberia, Borneo’s tree tops in the jungle, at the shores of the Galapagos or in the Mongolian desert.
