Event Description

The course "Formation of complex molecules in space and on planets - From interstellar clouds to life" will take place from 17 to 22 July 2017 at the University of Tartu. It aims to give students an overview of the biochemical evolution in the universe from formation of the first molecules in interstellar clouds to the assembly of the first cells on Earth. The course consists of lectures and student-led discussions. Participants will also have the possibility to display their own research results in two poster sessions.The Stockholm University Astrobiology Centre, the University of Tartu, the European Astrobiology Campus, and the Nordic Network of Astrobiology will function as co-organisers of the course and the following subjects will be covered by the lectures:

  • Formation of the elements in space
  • Chemical processes in dark clouds, star-forming regions and protoplanetary disks
  • Atmpspheric processes in rocky, gaseous planets and their satelites
  • Emergence of Homochirality
  • Formation of complx molecules in hydrothermal systems
  • From carbon molecules to biogenic activity
  • Assembly of first cells

Participants will also have the possibility to display their own research results in a poster session. Furthermore, a hhalf-day excursion to interesting sites in the area (Ice Age Museum, Lake Peipus) and aalk in Tartu are included as a social programme.

The event is aimed for graduate (masters and Ph. D.) students and early career scientists (up to 8 years after their first Ph. D. in a related field) in fields relevant to astrochemistry and astrobiology. The event is open to applicants from all nationalities. Detailed information about the summer school and the application procedure (deadline 31 May 2017) can be found here. Please see the Application page for details about the application.
