Special features regarding teachingThe teaching is closely interlinked with chemistry, biology and physics and is characterised by its extensive field training in addition to practical exercises on instrumental techniques. This includes field exercises in geophysics, geology, and mineralogy, as well as interdisciplinary field practicals and excursions with the participation of working groups from physics, microbiology, and ecology. The excursion programme also includes topic-specific excursions (industry, contaminated sites, raw materials) as well as excursions to the sites of current research projects.

Special features regarding the equipmentThe Institute for Geosciences has had a powerful transmission electron microscope (TEM), the resolution of which extends down to the molecular level, in the Langenhorst study group. In addition, the Institute also has a superconducting gravimeter in the form of the Moxa Geodynamic Observatory. Apart from this, the institute has a wide range of analytical facilities at its disposal with X-ray fluorescence, microprobes, diffractometers, mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma and laser ablation, atomic force microscope, electron microscope and two hydrogeochemical labs.
Special features regarding research activitiesAt the Institute of Geosciences, two coordinated research projects with members of the IGW as spokespersons (DFG Research Group 2179 MAD Soil) and co-speakers (DFG Collaborative Research Centre 1076 AquaDiva) are currently being carried out in addition to individual funding by the DFG, EU, BMBF and the State of Thuringia.
Other special featuresThe Institute for Geosciences at the Universität Jena is a cooperation between the disciplines of Geology, Geophysics and Mineralogy with strong inter-disciplinary links to Chemistry, Biology, Physics, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry (MPI BGC) and the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). To a large extent, the scientific workgroups can be joined in clusters for highly-competitive joint projects such as excellence initiatives, graduate colleges, Collaborative Research Centres or key focus areas. For years, a focus in the area of Biogeosciences has stood out.
