The Department of Physics and Astronomy hereby invite all interested to a docent (associate professorship) lecture in subject astronomy with specialisation in astrophysics.

Chairperson: professor Nikolai Piskunov
Representative of the Associate Professorship Board: professor Stephan Pomp

Abstract: Astronomical surveys of large-scale distributions of astrophysical objects, and their individual properties, enable a number of questions about the fundamental constituents of the Universe to be answered – for example about dark energy and dark matter. Here, an overview is given of selected methods and results, and of the prospects for future telescopes in multiple wavelengths to reveal new discoveries.

The lecture is an obligatory teaching test for those applying for admittance as docent (associate professor) and it should be possible for students and others with basic academic education in the relevant field to follow it. The lecture will last for 45 minutes and afterwards the audience may ask questions. The lecture will be given in Swedish.
