The University Museum's scientific staff are actively involved in educating students from the university, and in supervising master's and doctoral candidates. Staff work with the Department of Archaeology and Religious Studies to teach archaeology while students have access to the museum's archives, collections and exhibits.

The scientific staff also contribute to teaching at the Department of Biology, with a focus on biosystematics, biography and ecology.
