Novosibirsk state university is the unique place where education and science intersect. These two fields are inseparable here: they help the University to move forward by opening the incredible opportunities for work and further studies to NSU students and graduates. The university closely cooperates with the research institutes: more than a hundred of research areas developed all over the world are available for our students to explore. This allows NSU students to engage in the real, serious science from early years of their study, and to become part of the international scientific community.
Novosibirsk state university holds the leading positions in physics and natural sciences, being among the world’s best universities. The leading positions are ensured by participation in international collaborations, as well as by the wide recognition of research outcomes. For example, in 2015 the European center for nuclear research chose to build a supercollider using the model developed by the scientists working at the Institute of nuclear physics (Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences), who are also NSU professors and graduates.
Together with the traditional scientific disciplines, new areas are now being developed at NSU: engineering, instrumentation, astrophysics, and many more. The university now demonstrates the increasing amount of publications and citations in international journals; the number of graduate students and young faculty members is also growing. And, of course, the location of NSU in the academic town (Akademgorodok) provides the intellectual environment for professional development of every student, creates the ground for the emergence of new interdisciplinary research areas, and for integration of science with business and society.
Novosibirsk scientists studied the dynamics of an organometallic skeletal structure that was reduced to a partially amorphous state. Their research colleagues at Kyoto University created glass that retained porous properties.
A team of archaeologists explores material productions from key sites discovered 60 years ago near the Caspian Sea. Their project aims to shed light on the way people materialized their cultural identity from 12 to 5 thousand years ago in the region.
At an International Student Medical Conference in Warsaw earlier this month, a paper presented by a student at the NSU Natural Sciences Department won first place in the “Genetics and Molecular Biology” category.
This is an annual event hosted by the Geology and Geophysics Department. It was designed for people of all ages and professions so that anyone interested in geography can test their knowledge of geography. Everyone is welcome; an English version will be available for foreign participants.
Professor Anna Marie Masyuk, University of Edinburgh specialist in development and international cooperation, will conduct a workshop on effective communication and popularization of science.
