Project description:

The field of Music Information Retrieval (MIR) has developed advanced strategies for analysing music as an auditory phenomenon. Strategies involve feature extraction and selection based on physical properties of the sound signal and also models of human perception. Another important aspect of music, which to a lesser degree has been subject to MIR research, is movement: Music starts with sound-producing movement, and often also results in movement in the form of dance.

Movement may be quantified precisely using motion capture technology. But how are quantitative representations of movement related to semantic descriptions of the same movement? Can a computer be trained to classify dance styles and dance genres? And is it possible for a computer or a robot to imitate human dance movement from audio?

In the announced project, the recruited PhD candidate will research machine learning techniques for full-body motion capture data. The work involves contributing to data collection using state-of-the-art motion capture technology from Qualisys. Futher the candidate will use the collected motion capture data as training data for various machine learning tasks:

Automated generic post-processing techniques for motion capture data
(automatic marker recognition, gap-filling and marker swapping)

Classification of dance data based on semantic descriptions
(such as dance genre/style, gender, expressivity, etc.)

Explore deep learning techniques for automated synthesis of dance movement.

Requirements and qualifications:

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for this fellowship will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

A Doctoral Research Fellowship in Bioethics is open at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo.

Job description

The post will be associated with the convergence project “Epigenetics and bioethics of human embryonic development” funded by University of Oslo Life Sciences. The person appointed will be supervised by Anna Smajdor, who is leading the ethics component of the project.  

The PhD position is open for proposals that investigate the ethical implications of greater scientific knowledge and control over human embryos in research and fertility treatment. As our understanding of embryonic development increases, there are more opportunities to make judgments as to which embryos are ‘best’ for implantation. Not only this, but it is becoming possible to effect changes to embryos, either through altering the environment in which they are stored, or through intervening on them directly. The successful candidate will explore the ethical significance of these new aspects of control.

The PhD student will be affiliated with the Faculty's organized research training. The academic work is to result in a doctoral thesis that will be defended at the Faculty with a view to obtaining the degree of PhD. The successful candidate is expected to join the existing research milieu and contribute to its development.

The appointment is for a duration of three years. All PhD Candidates who submit their doctoral dissertation for assessment with a written recommendation from their supervisor within 3 years or 3 ½ years after the start of their PhD position, will be offered, respectively, a 12 or 6 month Completion Grant.

Qualification requirements

  • A Master's Degree or equivalent in philosophy or other relevant discipline. The Master's Degree must have been obtained by the time of application.
  • A project description relevant to the ethics of embryo selection.

In assessing the applications, special emphasis will be placed on:

  • The bioethical merit, relevance and innovation of the proposed project

Project title: Large-scale Internet deployment of RINA
RINA, the Recursive InterNetwork Architecture, is a novel “back to basics” approach to networking that is fundamentally different from today's networks. RINA was first presented by John Day in his book “Patterns in Network Architecture: A return to Fundamentals”.

Main objectives and summary of the projects
Deployment of a new architecture in today’s Internet is very difficult. In the OCARINA project, in order for RINA to have a phased adoption and to gradually supplant TCP/IP networks at a large scale, we see three essential enablers for deploying RINA in the Internet:

  1. RINA as an Overlay: RINA traffic is sent over TCP/IP, e.g. when connecting native RINA applications via an Internet path, or when tunneling through the Internet for a subset of a RINA path.
  2. RINA as an Underlay: TCP/IP traffic is sent over a RINA network.
  3. TCP/IP-RINA Gateway: A RINA-enabled application on one side could talk to a non-RINA-application on the other, or, when a segment of an Internet path is a native RINA path or a segment of a RINA path is a TCP/IP path, a translation could be carried out at the segment edges instead of using the other technology as an Underlay.

Our new mechanisms will be implemented, tested and evaluated in the RINA SDK, and we will see how RINA can be gradually deployed in (over/under/alongside) the Internet.

Project background and scientific basis.
Because TCP/IP is supposed to work well across any network and even remain operational in the face of network technologies that do not yet exist, it is a one-size-fits-all architecture with many embedded compromises. On the other hand, RINA shows great potential in many aspects of networking, e.g. by simplifying management and providing better security. The recursive nature of RINA calls for radically different approaches to how networking is performed. More information on RINA and the OCARINA project can be found here.

The candidate will be teamed up with two other candidates who are now working on RINA’s congestion control and dynamic routing in the OCARINA project.

Research questions and scientific challenges
Research questions to be tackled for Internet deployment include: 1) what are the limitations of a TCP/IP-RINA gateway? 2) can RINA flows be effectively bridged to TCP or UDP flows? 3) what are the benefits for existing IP networks to use RINA as a transport? 4) how are RINA flows affected in case of using TCP/IP as a transport? 5) how can services be mapped into RINA requirements? 6) how is the performance of RINA congestion control and routing affected/improved in case of deployment over/under/alongside the Internet?

Scientific methods
Our main method for testing our new developments is experimental evaluation on a real testbed that is built as part of the project. The testbed results will be validated against the existing RINA implementation in the OMNeT++ simulator.

Requirements and qualifications:
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.

The candidate must have a master degree or equivalent in computer science and documented knowledge about networking, e.g. by having good grades in a substantial networking course. The candidate should preferably have written a master thesis in networking related to different networking layers and network interoperability. Furthermore, a good knowledge of programming in Linux is an advantage.

The fellowship requires admission to the PhD programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The application to the PhD programme must be submitted to the department no later than two months after taking up the position. For more information see:

With its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally recognised research communities, UiO is an important contributor to society.

The Institute of Basic Medical Sciences overall objective is to promote basic medical knowledge in order to understand normal processes, provide insight into mechanisms that cause illness, and promote good health. The Institute is responsible for teaching in basic medical sciences for the programmes of professional study in medicine and the Master's programme in clinical nutrition. The Institute has more than 300 employees and is located in Domus Medica.

]]>
Applications are invited for a 3 year position as Postdoctoral Fellow in Statistics/Data Science to be based at the the Oslo Centre for Biostatistics and Epidemiology (OCBE), Institute of Basic Medical Sciences (IMB), the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo (UiO), Norway. The position is funded by the UiO Faculty of Medicine.

The postdoc will work on a new project which focuses on the integration of complex and big data across scales and types. The purpose is to develop new methodologies for three biomolecular problems which all call for data integration. Multiple technologies allow collecting data about patients and biological processes, where each data component is based on specialised measurements and contributes a piece of unique knowledge and understanding of the system. Analysing all data together, in an integrative manner, increases power and precision of the prediction (of the process), estimation (of hidden quantities) or classification (of patients in groups or of events in a cell differentiation context). The statistical challenge is to extract the unique information each data layer carries about the system under study and to quantify the uncertainty of predictions, estimations, classifications in a realistic way. A further challenge comes from the fact that data layers have different resolution (scale) in time and space and they carry different levels of noise.

The project will focus on three unique data sets, in three areas of biomolecular oncology, in collaboration with leading research groups in each of the three areas.

1.) The NBCS (Norwegian breast cancer study) has collected SNP, gene copy number, gene expression, miRNA, methylation, proteins and metabolic spectra which already have been used individually to classify the patients into diseases subtypes. Integrating together these molecular layers should produce disease subtypes which are more specific than those obtained with each component on its own. The different layers have biologically hierarchical relations and modelling these should allow more powerful classifications. In collaboration with professor Vessela Kristensen https://www.med.uio.no/klinmed/personer/vit/vessela/

2.) Stem cell differentiation. The aim is to identify relative contribution of genomics, epigenomics and 3D genome conformation parameters, to the regulation of adipose stem cell differentiation into adipocytes, with the aim of better understanding metabolic diseases. ChIP-seq, RNAseq and HiC (genome-wide chromosomal interaction) data are available and from these we are able to generate 4D models of chromatin architecture. Key challenges to be solved are integration methods, weighting, statistical importance of the contributions, and 3D structure deconvolution techniques to provide a deeper appreciation of developmental transitions leading to normal and diseased adipocytes. In collaboration with professor Philippe Collas, http://www.collaslab.org/

3.) Randomised clinical trial with fish oil. We seek to integrate transcriptome data (using microarray) with metabolome data (using time-of-flight mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy), to discover integrative biomarkers. These biomarkers are aimed to understand and predict changes in lipids (triglycerides) and inflammatory markers caused by fish oil intake, possibly leading to novel precision strategies for dietary prevention of lifestyle diseases. In collaboration with professor Stine Ulven http://www.med.uio.no/imb/personer/vit/smulven/

These three cases launch common challenges to current statistical methodologies, and will lead to papers, algorithms and computational tools which will be tested systematically in these contexts. In addition, each case carries specific aspects which will require specialized versions of the common methodology. Professor Arnoldo Frigessi will collaborate in all parts of the project. http://www.med.uio.no/imb/english/people/aca/frigessi/index.html

Candidates will have expertise in statistical modelling, computationally intensive inference, high dimensional machine learning approaches, for biological and biomedical processes. Experience to analyze and integrate experimental data is necessary. The ideal candidate has some experience of data analysis in genomics and molecular biology, though this is not an absolute requirement, and a solid methodological competence and experience in other applications areas can compensate for absence of knowledge of genomics. Applicants must show promises to become leading scientists and to promote a collaborative research environment across disciplines. Together with colleagues at UiO, the postdoc will shape research in integrative data science.

An excellent and enthusiastic young scientist is sought to be part of one of Europe's most active biostatistics departments at an exciting time. Currently, OCBE has eight tenured professors, four tenured associate professors, fifteen tenured researchers, post-doctoral fellows and PhD students, making up a group of about 60 scientists. OCBE is internationally recognized, with interests spanning a broad range of areas (including time-to-event models, data integration, causal inference, statistical genomics, Bayesian inference, stochastic simulation algorithms, probabilistic graphical models, machine learning, evolution and population genetics, informative missingness and measurement error models, epidemiological studies of lifestyle and chronic diseases, stochastic models for infectious diseases, high dimensional data and models) and numerous collaborations with leading bio-medical research groups internationally and in Norway. In the last national research evaluation, OCBE was judged as excellent by an international committee. OCBE has a leading role in the recently funded prestigious centre for research-based innovation BigInsight, a consortium of academic, industrial and public partners, with a funding of about 4 mil Euro annually until 2023. Furthermore, OCBE hosts the ERC Advanced Grant of Professor Corander (Scalable inference algorithms for Bayesian evolutionary epidemiology) from 2017 until 2022, and several further important projects in the areas of statistical methods for biobank, health survey and registry data, of causal inference and of mathematical models for personalised cancer therapy.

OCBE is responsible for the bio-statistical teaching for the professional study in medicine, for the faculty's bachelor and master programmes and for the PhD training. OCBE also provides an extensive advisory service for bio-medical and clinical researchers at the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital, often also an existing source of data and challenges for our discipline.

This position is part of a substantial investment in the computational life sciences by the University of Oslo, through the programme UiO:Life Science. In particular, this position is part of the Faculty of Medicine strategic plan, with focus on digital life sciences with high potential in basic and clinical medicine.

Faglig bredde og internasjonalt anerkjente forskningsmiljøer gjør UiO til en viktig samfunnsaktør. 

Institutt for informatikk (IFI) er ett av ni institutter ved Det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultet ved Universitetet i Oslo. IFI er Norges største universitetsinstitutt for generell utdanning og forskning i databehandling og beslektede emner.

SIRIUS- Center for Scalable Data Access in the Oil and Gas Domain - er et norsk senter for forskningsdrevet innovasjon (SFI) som Institutt for informatikk er vertskap for.

SFI-ordningen skal styrke innovasjon gjennom satsing på langsiktig forskning i et nært samarbeid mellom FoU-aktive bedrifter og fremstående forskningsmiljøer. SFI skal utvikle kompetanse på høyt internasjonalt nivå på områder som er viktig for innovasjon og verdiskaping (NFR)

UiO medvirker til innovasjon direkte gjennom kommersialisering av forskningsresultater og gjennom samarbeid med eksisterende virksomheter. Det mest betydelige bidraget til innovasjon skjer imidlertid indirekte gjennom utdanning av kandidater, nyskapende forskning og utveksling av kunnskap med næringsliv, organisasjoner og offentlig sector (UiO)

Senteret vil utvikle nye teknologier for å identifisere og behandle relevant informasjon fra den store og økende mengden digitale data ("big data") som er tilgjengelig. Forskningen i senteret vil bygge på og utnytte teknologiske nyvinninger innenfor blant annet tungregning og skyteknologi (SFI)

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMTThu, 21 Sep 2017 15:12:13 GMT6. november 2017The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest ranked educational and research institution, with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. With its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally recognised research communities, UiO is an important contributor to society.

The Institute of Basic Medical Sciences overall objective is to promote basic medical knowledge in order to understand normal processes, provide insight into mechanisms that cause illness, and promote good health. The Institute is responsible for teaching in basic medical sciences for the programmes of professional study in medicine and the Master's programme in clinical nutrition. The Institute has more than 300 employees and is located in Domus Medica.

]]>
A three year position as Researcher (forsker) is available at the Oslo Centre for Biostatistics and Epidemiology (OCBE), Institute of Basic Medical Sciences (IMB), the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo (UiO), Norway. The position is funded by UiO:Life Science and IMB.

An excellent and enthusiastic scientist is sought to be part of one of Europe's most active biostatistics departments at an exciting time. Working at the interface between mathematical oncology and computationally intensive inference, we aim to develop mathematical models to simulate personalized tumor dynamics and treatment response to better guide therapeutic intervention in the clinic. You will have expertise in mathematical modelling for biological and biomedical processes including multiscale modeling and computer implementation of numerical methods to simulate differential equations and cellular automata. Ability to visualize, analyze and integrate experimental data into mathematical models is also necessary. The ideal candidate has experience in the modeling of vascular structures, as they play a key role in tumor dynamics, and ideally is familiar with methods to quantify blood perfusion, vessel permeability and drug delivery to tumors. A documented genuine interest and/or experience in personalised medicine is also an advantage. Applicants must show promises to become leading scientists and to promote a collaborative research environment across disciplines. Together with your colleagues at OCBE, you will shape research and teaching leadership in this fast-developing discipline.

Currently, OCBE has eight tenured professors, four tenured associate professors, fifteen tenured researchers, post-doctoral fellows and PhD students, making up a group of about 60 scientists. OCBE is internationally recognized, with interests spanning a broad range of areas (including time-to-event models, data integration, causal inference, statisti-cal genomics, Bayesian inference, stochastic simulation algorithms, probabilistic graphical models, machine learning, evolution and population genetics, informative missingness and measurement error models, epidemiological studies of lifestyle and chronic diseases, stochastic models for infectious diseases, high dimensional data and models) and numerous collaborations with leading bio-medical research groups internationally and in Norway. In the last national research evaluation, OCBE was judged as excellent by an international committee. OCBE has a leading role in the recently funded prestigious centre for research-based innovation BigInsight, a consortium of academic, industrial and public partners, with a funding of about 4 mil Euro annually until 2023. Furthermore, OCBE hosts the ERC Advanced Grant of Professor Corander (Scalable inference algorithms for Bayesian evolutionary epidemiology) from 2017 until 2022, and several further important projects in the areas of statistical methods for biobank, health survey and registry data, of causal inference and of mathematical models for personalised cancer therapy.

OCBE is responsible for the bio-statistical teaching for the professional study in medicine, for the faculty's bachelor and master programmes and for the PhD training. OCBE also provides an extensive advisory service for bio-medical and clinical researchers at the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital, often also an existing source of data and challenges for our discipline.

This position is part of a substantial investment in the computational life sciences by the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital, through the programme UiO:Life Science. In particular, this position is part of the UiO: Life Science so called convergence environment PerCaThe, Personalised Cancer Therapy, see http://www.uio.no/english/research/strategic-research-areas/life-science/research/convergence-environments/percathe/

The programme PERCATHE will develop new, powerful and frontiers-breaking methods to build an innovative and practicable pipeline for individualised precision treatment of cancer, to give to the most difficult cancer patients each the best personalised cure. Differently from other approaches, which aim for a fine stratification of patients, PERCATHE’s idea is to inform ex vivo drug sensitivity testing of cancer patients’ cells with a combination of (i) drug synergy predictions based on genomic profile of patients, (ii) mathematical models of cancer multiscale processes and (iii) patient based inference of cancer characterising parameters, exploiting medical imaging and genomics. Focus is on breast and lung cancers and on B cell malignancies where PERCATHE has strong clinical collaborators.

Role summary

The appointment is central to PERCATHE. The appointed candidate will have full operational responsibility for her/his research within PERCATHE programme. He/she will be responsible for the in silico simulation of cancer, in particular for: (i) developing the mathematical models for different mono-drug therapies for three cancer types; (ii) developing inferential approaches for model parameters from patient genomic data and images; (iii) parallel implementation of numerical schemes and simulations. She/he will lead and contribute enthusiastically to the collaborative research project, with the aim of producing best science with impact. Establish and strengthen collaboration in a multidisciplinary research setting to develop and validate predictive models for patient specific cancer treatment.

The post holder will contribute to the strategic research leadership of PERCATHE.

Teaching, advising and student supervision can also be part of the work load. The role holder will be an excellent teacher. As an adviser, she/he will be able to recommend state-of-the-art approaches and tools to scientists in the bio-medical field who require support. Some of the advising work will lead to co-authorship. The role holder will be proactive to make her/his research known to the general public. When actual, she/he will consider commercial exploitation of discoveries.

Position as Postdoctoral fellow available at the Department of Biosciences.

The fellowship period is 2,5 years. Within the framework of the position duties may be assigned. Starting date no later than 15.01.2018.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo.

Job/ project description:

We are searching for a highly motivated person with an interest in developmental genetics. Experience with molecular methods relevant to the project as well as research related to receptor mediated signaling will be seen as a benefit.

The Postdoctoral fellow will be appointed on the project entitled “Evolutionary and functional importance of simple repeats in the genome” funded by the Research council of Norway through the FRIPRO program as a selected frontier research proposal (http://www.forskningsradet.no/prognett-fripro/Nyheter/NOK_1_billion_to_topnotch_researchers/1254015755966/p1226994096494).

As such, the candidate will be working in a national-leading research group lead by professor Kjetill S. Jakobsen. The project focuses on the functional modulation of regulatory mechanisms affecting the phenotype by variations in simple trinucleotide repeats residing inside (coding) and in the vicinity (or in introns) of genes. Specifically, we would like to test the hypothesis that hypervariable coding/regulatory repeats are promoting the ability of a species or population to adapt to a changing environment. To address this we will use Atlantic cod and Arabidopsis as model systems. The project is cross-disciplinary and will utilize genomic, bioinformatics, statistics and experimental approaches.

In particular, the candidate will focus on the functional significance of tri-nucleotide repeats in the model system Arabidopsis with a particular emphasis on gene families encoding receptor kinases and selected transcription factors involved in regulating plant architecture. The analysis will later be expanded to other evolutionary related species such as Brassica rapa for potential application in species of commercial importance. In-depth molecular and phenotypic studies will be performed on Arabidopsis lines expressing genes with varying repeats exposed to various abiotic and biotic stresses. Additional studies will be based on genes and gene families identified from whole genome sequencing of selected Arabidopsis ecotypes with PacBio sequencing. The successful candidate will also be expected to collaborate on projects dissecting the function of selected cod genes with varying repeat lengths.

The project as a whole consists of three interconnected work packages and is led by Professor Kjetill S. Jakobsen. The successful candidate will work on the work package entitled “Addressing the functionality of repeat variation in Arabidopsis and cod” led by Associate professor Melinka Butenko in a larger team consisting of one additional Postdoc and three PhD students. The project has international collaborators and research visits to collaborating partners will be encouraged.

Requirements/qualifications:

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

  • The candidate must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Molecular Biology. Doctoral dissertation must be submitted for evaluation by the closing date. Appointment is dependent on the public defence of the doctoral thesis being approved.
  • A good command of English is required.

The successful applicant should have skills and experience in studying receptor mediated signaling in plants and should have ample knowledge of Arabidopsis as a model system and preferably also hands–on experience with other Brassicaceae such as Brassica rapa. Experience with one or more of the following methods would also be an advantage: Fluorescent imaging, genetic interaction studies, cloning and recombinant DNA technology; gene expression analysis; genetic methods in Arabidopsis thaliana, e.g. using T-DNA insertion, RNAi, CRISPR/Cas9 system and/or reporter lines.

The main purpose of post-doctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in top academic positions within their disciplines.

Please also refer to the regulations pertaining to the conditions of employment for post-doctoral fellowship positions:

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMTTue, 05 Sep 2017 13:30:42 GMT15. november 2017The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest ranked educational and research institution, with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. With its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally recognised research communities, UiO is an important contributor to society.

Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM) was established in 2008 and is the Norwegian node in the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine. NCMM is a joint venture between the University of Oslo, Health Region South-East and the Research Council of Norway. From 2017 NCMM is merged with the Biotechnology Centre of Oslo and now has altogether 11 research groups. The overall objective of NCMM is to conduct cutting edge research in molecular medicine and biotechnology as well as facilitate translation of discoveries in basic medical research into clinical practice.

]]>
The overall vision of NCMM is to improve our molecular understanding of health and disease to facilitate improved medical practice. NCMM identifies outstanding early-stage Group Leaders through international calls. Group Leaders are selected using quality criteria and methods of assessment as for recruitment to EMBL Group Leader positions. Current approaches and model systems at NCMM include bioinformatics, cell biology, neurobiology, immunology, stem cells, structural biology, synthetic chemistry and chemical biology as well as yeast and zebra fish model systems. Furthermore, researchers at NCMM have access to state-of-the art drug screening instruments. To support our translational research, we also actively collaborate with local hospitals and with the research environment nationally and internationally, translating our knowledge from bench to bedside. See NCMM website for more information and fit with research profiles of existing NCMM research groups; http://www.med.uio.no/ncmm/english/.

NCMM is now seeking new outstanding international candidates:

Group Leader position with start-up package in Precision Medicine 

NCMM Translational Research expects to hire one new principal investigator through this call, and we particularly encourage international applicants. The successful candidate is expected to initiate a new independent research program with a clear relevance to molecular medicine and disease mechanisms with approaches to individualized diagnostics and therapy. The research should consolidate existing research within the Centre (see web-site). NCMM plans for all group leaders at NCMM Translational Research to have adjunct appointments in university hospital departments to facilitate translation and clinical collaboration. Furthermore, we expect multi-disciplinary research collaborations with other NCMM research groups and NCMM Associate Investigators, with the internationally recognized biomedical and medical research environment in Oslo as well as with other top Norwegian scientists and within the Nordic EMBL Partnership. 

NCMM provides attractive sustainable support packages for new group leaders of more than 2.0 million EUR over the first five-year period. This includes salaries of the group leader, a postdoctoral fellow, a doctoral student as well as a technician (total 4 positions), consumables and modern laboratory facilities. The candidate is expected to complement this budget through other national and / or international grants and / or through industrial collaborations. NCMM scientists will be supported by excellent in-house research infrastructures and have access to the local research community’s infrastructures, see technology platforms at University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital, national infrastructures and international capabilities provided by EMBL. 

Translational research in molecular medicine is currently being strengthened in Norway and there is a strong desire to closely integrate and coordinate basal and clinical research activities, including NCMM. The Centre is not aiming to establish completely new research areas but aims to strengthen already existing areas at NCMM and is therefore especially looking for candidates with experience in and a research programme focusing on precision medicine and individualized diagnostics and therapy in areas such as genetic and rare diseases (including pediatric diseases and in-born errors of metabolism, immunology and infection, neurology a.o.), and/or individualized cancer therapy. 

• Qualification requirements include a PhD or equivalent degree, appropriate postdoctoral training, experience with supervision and a track record of high-impact publications in top journals of biology or medicine. In addition, considerable weight will be put on the research plan proposed by the candidate and on how this will integrate and synergize with the activity of other NCMM investigators and potential collaborators in the Oslo region. Group leader positions are intended for independent investigators typically less than 8 years past their Ph.D. More senior applicants in this bracket are expected to also show experience in supervision, scientific leadership and a track record for attracting significant independent funding.

• Applications should include a covering letter summarizing the applicant’s career, past research accomplishments, future plans and fit with the NCMM research profile (max 1-2 pages), CV and a list of publications (with 5 most significant publications indicated), a short research plan (max 5 pages) with a summary of expected translational, medical or public health impact and names of three references. Experience in clinical work will be considered an advantage. University of Oslo is an equal opportunity employer and female and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Staff that the applicant would like to bring to NCMM as part of their group should also be named in the application.
 
• The top candidates will be invited to present their research in a talk and interview, and can be asked to provide a more detailed research plan as well as Letters of Reference. An International Search Committee will evaluate the candidates and their research proposals. Identification of and meetings with potential local collaborators will also be organized by NCMM. The first candidates may be nominated in the first half of 2018 with an anticipated starting date mid- to late-2018.
 
• The successful candidate for the position will be offered a fixed-term, non-tenured 5-year contract as research scientist with function as group leader, which is renewable for an additional 4 years subject to evaluation. The position is included in the Norwegian health insurance and retirement pension schemes and will be placed as SKO (Position Code) 1110 Scientist and with a salary range depending on qualifications from step (ltr.) 70 (NOK 623,900) to 84 (NOK 882,900). Assistance and financial support are provided for international or national relocation as necessary.
 
• The Group Leader position may be combined with a part-time adjunct research position (20%) at university hospital under the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority.

According to the Norwegian Freedom and Information Act (Offentleglova) information about the applicant may be included in the public applicant list, also in cases where the applicant has requested non-disclosure.

]]>
A two-year position as a postdoctoral research fellow in the field of ancient DNA (aDNA) and evolutionary genomics is available at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES), Department of Biosciences.

The Postdoctoral fellow will be part of a multi-disciplinary, international team led by Dr Bastiaan Star, working on the project Catching the Past: Discovering the legacy of historic Atlantic cod exploitation using ancient DNA funded by the Research Council of Norway. The position is affiliated with CEES, a former national centre of excellence (CoE). Expected start date is April 2018.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo.

Project description

Humans have used the natural resources of the oceans for thousands of years. The main aim of this project is to investigate if the intensive, long-term exploitation of Atlantic cod has affected its pan-European population demography or has led to evolutionary change. By extracting DNA from ancient fish remains (up to 10,000 years old), we compare the genome-wide data of specimens that predate extensive human influence to extensive modern reference databases comprising hundreds of individuals. In addition, we aim to reconstruct the early origin of long-distance fishing trade by analysing material from different types of archaeological sites (representing centres of export and import). By identifying the biological source population of bones from a large number of import sites, we will investigate the extent and range of early Viking Age and medieval fish trade (see for instance http://www.pnas.org/content/114/34/9152.full). Knowledge of the chronology of such long-distance trade yields fundamental insights into historic exploitation patterns.

In this project, we have access to unique biological material from different countries that will be analysed using high-throughput, whole-genome sequencing approaches. The successful applicant will join a multi-disciplinary, international team that brings together experts from the fields of biology, archaeology and zooarchaeology. The research fellow’s main task will be the comparative genomic analyses of hundreds of individually sequenced ancient genomes. These data will be interpreted in close dialog with project partners and archaeological sample providers. The ideal candidate will make a major contribution to the planned research, but may also develop her/his own complementary lines of research that reflect the candidate's own expertise and interests, and that fit within the project's main goals. This project forms a collaboration between the CEES at the University of Oslo, the Institute for Marine Research (IMR), University Museum of Bergen, University of Gothenburg, University of Cambridge and the University of Copenhagen.

Requirements

Applicants must hold a PhD-degree (or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree) with a background within population genomics and/or evolutionary genomics. The candidate should be able to document strong skills in the analyses of genome-wide data using phylogenetic or population genetic approaches. Experience with ancient DNA, analytical or experimental, is a distinct advantage. Applicants should have a strong publication record for their career stage.

We seek a highly motivated, enthusiastic person with the ambition to gain insight and publish papers in leading, international journals, with interpersonal skills and the capability to work in close collaboration with others. The candidate will work in close collaboration with the rest of the team as well as our national and international partners (Denmark, Sweden and Great Britain) within this project. Some time will be spent visiting the collaborating partners overseas.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research facility. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

OCBE is internationally recognized, with interests spanning a broad range of areas (including time-to-event models, data integration, causal inference, statistical genomics, Bayesian inference, stochastic simulation algorithms, probabilistic graphical models, machine learning, evolution and population genetics, informative missingness and measurement error models, epidemiological studies of lifestyle and chronic diseases, stochastic models for infectious diseases, high dimensional data and models) and numerous collaborations with leading bio-medical research groups internationally and in Norway. In the last national research evaluation, OCBE was judged as excellent by an international committee. OCBE has a leading role in the recently funded prestigious centre for research-based innovation BigInsight, a consortium of academic, industrial and public partners, with a funding of about 4 mil Euro annually until 2023. Furthermore, OCBE hosts the ERC Advanced Grant of Professor Corander (Scalable inference algorithms for Bayesian evolutionary epidemiology) from 2017 until 2022, and several further important projects in the areas of statistical methods for biobank, health survey and registry data, of causal inference and of mathematical models for personalised cancer therapy.

 

These positions are part of a substantial investment in the statistics and computational sciences by the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital. Within the strategic focus area of the life sciences, a new large and elegant building will be raised on campus, where OCBE is expected to move from 2022.

 

OCBE is responsible for the biostatistical teaching for the professional study in medicine, for the faculty's bachelor and master programmes and for the PhD training. OCBE also provides an extensive advisory service for bio-medical and clinical researchers at the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital - often an existing source of data and challenges for our discipline.

The successful candidate is expected to initiate, perform and lead research, supervise PhD candidates, participate in teaching and in exam setting and assessment at all levels, and to carry out administrative duties in accordance with the needs of the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences.

UiO:eColab ved Institutt for helse og samfunn og Helsevitenskapelig utviklingssenter (HUS) ved Det medisinske fakultet har ledig stilling som stipendiat i 3 (4) år til prosjektet «Simulering for primærhelsetjenesten (SimPrim). Tverrprofesjonelle simuleringsscenarier for studenter i helsefag på UiO». Vi søker kandidat med bakgrunn i allmennmedisin, sykepleievitenskap eller et annet helsefag.

Om prosjektet

 

Formålet med prosjektet er å studere bruk av simulering for å trene studenter i tverrprofesjonelt samarbeid i kliniske situasjoner (scenarier) som håndteres i primærhelsetjenesten. Studien vil fokusere på tverrprofesjonell samarbeidslæring der studenter fra profesjonsstudiet i medisin og master i avansert geriatrisk sykepleie samarbeider med studenter fra andre helsefag på UiO (klinisk ernæring, farmasi, odontologi og psykologi) for å løse praksisnære situasjoner i primærhelsetjenesten.

Simulering av tverrprofesjonelt samarbeid i primærhelsetjenesten studeres i tre ulike scenarier – konsultasjon på legekontor/helsesenter, utredning av pasient på sykehjem/KAD og subakutt situasjon på sykehjem/helsehus. I simuleringen vil vi ta i bruk simuleringsdukker, video (både som kommunikasjonsverktøy implementert i scenariene og som del av debrief og evaluering), og velferdsteknologi. Ulike strategier for datainnhenting vil bli benyttet - egenevaluering, observasjon i samtid og videoopptak av gjennomføring av scenariene, debrifing og repetisjon av simulering.

Prosjektet skal bidra til forskningsbasert utvikling av praksisnær, tverrprofesjonell simuleringsundervisning rettet både mot klinisk praksis for studenter og mot fremtidig arbeid som helsepersonell i primærhelsetjenesten. Målet er å utvikle undervisningsformer som bidrar til å utvide repertoaret for trening på avanserte ferdigheter i profesjonsstudiet i medisin og i masterstudier i avansert geriatrisk sykepleie og andre helsefag.

Simuleringen vil foregå ved UiO:eColab (eCollaboration Laboratory) ved Helsam. Dette er et forskningslaboratorium med e-infrastruktur til blant annet å forske på bruk av simulering ved utvikling og gjennomføring av tverrprofesjonelt teamarbeid i primærhelsetjenesten. Laben inneholder e-infrastruktur med a) mobil, sikker video-konferanse, b) simuleringsutstyr (bl.a. SimMan) og c) velferdsteknologi.

We are looking for a highly motivated and very talented (bio)statistician, with a special interest in the analysis of complex high-dimensional longitudinal data. For the first 5 years, the candidate is exempt from teaching duties. Instead, the candidate is expected to play a central role in the scientific programme of LCBC, including (co-)supervision of PhD students, advising and collaboration with researchers at LCBC. A 3 years PhD or post doc fellow can follow the present position.

 

The Center for Lifespan Changes in Brain and Cognition

LCBC is a world renowned multi-disciplinary research center, with a staff of 25 full time positions, including three faculty professors, 5 Post-doctoral fellows, 9 PhD candidates, 3 programmers/ engineers, as well as 4 full-time RAs, supporting personnel and several affiliated researchers. Three international professors are affiliated with the group (Heidi Johansen-Berg, Oxford; Lars Nyberg, Umeå; Ragnhildur Karadottir, Cambridge). LCBC coordinates a large H2020 EU-project (2017-2022, 10.7 mill €) and has obtained three ERC grants. Further funding comes from the Norwegian Research Council, the National Health Association, the Thon foundation and the University of Oslo. In 2015 LCBC obtained the status as “world leading centre” as one of five at the University of Oslo, with special funding for five years. More information can be found on our web site www.oslobrains.no.

 

The work

LCBC research is aimed at describing changes in cognitive function throughout life, and determining which variables can explain and predict these changes. We have unique large databases of longitudinal neurocognitive data. These include cognitive test scores, brain imaging, genetics, a wide variety of somatic and health variables, demographics, inventory data etc. In total, more than 2000 participants from 4 to 90+ years have been followed over up to 10 years. In order to analyse in full these and other relevant data, we need a highly competent and motivated statistician who will work with us in order to obtain stronger and more profound results.

 

Key words include

•Incomplete data, 1-5 time points of observations
•Estimation and control for non-random selection bias
•Estimation and control for test-retest effects on cognitive measures
•Non-linear relationships and interactions
•High dimensional data and variable selection
•Causality


The candidate is expected to work closely with other researchers at LCBC as well as with our international collaborators.

Instead of teaching, which usually amounts to roughly 50% of the time, and as part of her/his duties, the candidate will advise, supervise and collaborate with the other LCBC staff, offering best practice statistical and computational approaches, but also finding solutions subject to practical constrains and time restrictions.

Mon, 23 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMTWed, 18 Oct 2017 08:09:47 GMT30. november 2017The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest ranked educational and research institution, with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. With its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally recognised research communities, UiO is an important contributor to society.

Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM) was established in 2008 and is the Norwegian node in the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine. NCMM is a joint venture between the University of Oslo, Health Region South-East and the Research Council of Norway. From 2017 NCMM is merged with the Biotechnology Centre of Oslo and now has altogether 11 research groups. The overall objective of NCMM is to conduct cutting edge research in molecular medicine and biotechnology as well as facilitate translation of discoveries in basic medical research into clinical practice.

]]>
A four-year position as PhD fellow (stipendiat) is available at NCMM funded by UiO:Life Science and the centre. This position is part of a substantial investment in the life sciences by the University of Oslo and the Oslo University Hospital, through the programme UiO:Life Science. In particular, this position is part of the UiO: Life Science so called convergence environment PERCATHE, Personalised Cancer Therapy.

 

The programme PERCATHE will develop new, powerful and cutting-edge methods to build an innovative and practicable pipeline for individualised precision treatment of cancer to provide individual cancer patients with advanced disease with the best personalised cure in the future. Differently from other approaches, which aim for a fine stratification of patients, PERCATHE’s goal is to provide (i) drug synergy predictions based on genomic profile of patients, (ii) mathematical models of cancer multiscale processes, (iii) patient based inference of cancer characterising parameters, exploiting medical imaging and genomics and (iv) to test the ex vivo drug sensitivity of cancer patients’ cells. Focus is on leukemia, breast and lung cancers where PERCATHE has strong clinical collaborators and with possibility for extension to other cancer forms. The working language in PERCATHE is English.

 

PhD Project: The project will establish a pipeline to identify drugs and drug combinations effective in personalized therapy of individual patients’ cancer, in whom other treatment options are exhausted or ineffective. The research will focus on the pathogenesis in patients and will identify pathway aberrations amenable for drug targeting in a personalized medicine context. Lab work will involve Cancer Drug Sensitivity Screening (CDSS) using viability and growth inhibition assays, novel in vitro culture assays of primary cancer cells to developed from patient tumors or from human tumors passaged in mice (PDX), pathway analysis and patient-derived xenografting (PDX) into NSG mice and other models to validate finding. The successful candidate will work with establishing screening assays and the pipeline for CDSS, library optimization, patient sample analysis and data interpretation.

 

The successful candidate will work both with an established CDSS pipeline assessing patient samples (leukemia) and to set up screening for a new solid cancer type. She/he will contribute enthusiastically to the overall collaborative research project, with the aim of producing best science with impact. The candidate will establish and strengthen collaboration in a multidisciplinary research setting to develop and validate predictive models in PERCATHE.

 

The Taskén group in NCMM investigates signal networks and targeting strategies in immune cells and cancer cells. The group has established Chemical Biology Screening Platform that serves the Oslo region and is now also starting projects developing Cancer Drug Sensitivity Screening (CDSS) pipelines for different cancers to support future individualized therapy programs.

 

See CDSS and the Taskén group for further information.

  

Requirements/qualifications:

Candidates must have a Master’s degree in molecular medicine, cancer biology, cell biology, pharmacy or other life sciences or an equivalent level of training. M.D.s would also be eligible. Candidates to the position will have some experience and show clear potential to initiate, develop and manage the scientific project. Candidates must demonstrate team-spirit in developing their research, with strong interpersonal skills. Experience with drug screening, high-throughput biology, robotics, and/or computational bilogy would be a benefit.

 

We are seeking an excellent and enthusiastic young scientist that will have:

• Strong motivation.

• High working capacity.

• Excellent collaboration skills as well as ability to work independently.

• Interest in solving biological, computational and clinical problems.

• Positive attitude and goal orientation.

• Good communication skills, with a high level of proficiency in writing and speaking English

 

This position is funded by UiO:Life Science and the purpose of the fellowship is research training, leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree. Documented previous expertise and genuine interest and/or experience in personalised medicine are advantageous. Applicants must show promises to become leading scientists and to promote a collaborative research environment across disciplines.

 

The fellowship requires admission to the research training program at the Faculty of Medicine at University of Oslo. Admission must be approved within three months from starting the grant.

Wed, 11 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMTWed, 11 Oct 2017 14:05:02 GMT1. januar 2018The University of Oslo is Norway’s oldest and highest rated institution of research and education with 28 000 students and 7000 employees. Its broad range of academic disciplines and internationally esteemed research communities make UiO an important contributor to society.

The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. It presently has 11 permanent professors/associate professors. The Institute employs some 15-20 postdoctoral and senior research fellows and has of order 15-20 Ph.D. students. The research activity of the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics is concentrated around solar physics, cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics.

]]>
The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA) at the University of Oslo invites applications for an Associate Professorship in Solar Physics.

The faculty of the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics presently consists of 13 associate and full professors, of these 11 are permanent professors/associate professors (to be increased to 13) and 2 are adjunct professors shared with other institutions. The Institute employs about 16 postdoctoral and advanced research fellows. The Institute has two sections, one for solar and stellar physics and one for cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics.

Observational material is collected from space-borne and ground-based observatories. In interaction with and parallel to the observational activity, there is a strong activity in theoretical and computational astrophysics. The Institute is actively engaged in a large number of international collaborative programs. It is heavily engaged in organizational collaborations through the Norwegian membership in ESA, Norwegian participation in the Nordic Optical Telescope (NOT), the Institute’s participation in the Swedish 1-m Solar Telescope on La Palma, the balloon-borne CMB polarization experiment Spider and the CO Mapping Array Pathfinder experiment COMAP at Owens Valley, California. Space projects with major participation from the Institute include the Japanese Hinode satellite, the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph (IRIS) and ESA’s Solar Orbiter within solar physics and Planck and Euclid within cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics. A long-term effort for getting Norwegian membership in ESO is ongoing. In theoretical and computational astrophysics, the Institute has built up strong groups within numerical modelling and within the use of modern computational statistics methods in data analysis. The groups have external funding through a number of grants from the European Union, the European Space Agency and the Research Council of Norway. The experimental and theoretical activities at the Institute are supported by a modern computer infrastructure, including excellent access to supercomputing resources, both in-house, at the national level and internationally.

Teaching at the Institute is given as courses and as supervision within the framework given by the degrees bachelor, master and Ph.D. Presently the Institute has about 20 master’s students and 15 Ph.D. students.

The Section for solar and stellar physics will from November 2017 become the Norwegian Centre of Excellence “Rosseland Centre for Solar Physics” (RoCS). Two new tenure track positions will be associated with the centre. This announcement regards the first of these – it will become a “regular” permanent ITA position at the close of the 10-year centre lifetime.

Information about the research group:

The primary goal of RoCS’ 10-year effort lies in understanding the workings of the energetic Sun. To attack this goal a concerted effort of numerical modelling, both fluid (extended MHD) and particle oriented, will be combined with high quality observations taken at ground based and space based observatories to produce models of the active Sun. The Solar group at the ITA is presently led by Mats Carlsson, who will also become leader of RoCS. The group has an internationally leading competence in radiative transfer and radiative hydrodynamics. Observationally, the group has access to the Swedish 1-meter Solar Telescope on La Palma, to ALMA, to several space based satellites such as NASA’s IRIS and SDO, JAXA’s Hinode and in the near future ESA’s Solar Orbiter. The group utilizes strongly local, national and international High-Performance Computing facilities. With the RoCS centre of excellence, the Solar group will expand significantly.

General information about the position:

Applicants must document scientific qualifications in his/her field, equivalent to an Associate professor position. The successful applicant must be able to teach at all levels and to supervise Master and PhD students. After the 10-year lifetime of RoCS, up to 50% of the working time will be devoted to teaching (including supervision of students), teaching related activities and administrative tasks at the Institute and at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Teaching and administrative activities during the duration of RoCS will be according to further agreement. Teaching is given in Norwegian and English. If an appointee is not fluent in a Scandinavian language, the appointee will be expected within a two – three year period to learn sufficient Norwegian to be able to participate actively in all functions the position may involve.

Specific information about the position:

The position is meant to broaden the reach of the RoCS centre of excellence team. Candidates who can cooperate closely with and complement the present activities of the group are desired.

The centre explores the distribution and history of tectonic plates in time and space, and examines the driving mechanisms that steer all stages of the ‘Wilson Cycle’, and aims to establish the links between Earth's interior, crust and oceans, atmosphere and biosphere. CEED endeavors to also unravel similarities and differences of our planet with earth-like planetary bodies.
The centre was established in 2013 and consists of ca. 70 full time and part time professors and researchers, PhD Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Research Fellows.

]]>
A position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics, Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. The fellowship is for a period of two years. Starting date is as soon as possible, but preferred no later than March 2018.

Project and job description:

A new and exciting era of planetary space exploration started in 2000 with a plethora of in-situ and orbital missions in operation at terrestrial planets and small Solar System bodies. The characterization of the surface of these planetary objects is one of the major goals of space exploration. In order to support these operations, reduction and analyses of the space mission data, the H2020 project “Planetary Terrestrial Analogues Library” (PTAL) aims to build and exploit a multi-instrument spectral data base and joint spectral interpretation tools.

A two-year post-doctoral research position is sought for the PTAL project, aimed at determining mineral alteration pathways for natural and artificial analogue materials under well-defined and controlled experimental conditions. The impact of varying experimental conditions will be tested to better constrain the geochemical aspect of environmental conditions on Mars, one of the prime targets of this project, and potentially validated for small planetary bodies. During previous field campaigns materials that are analogous to the Martian surface have been collected. We are also aiming at acquiring complementing analogues for small planetary bodies (asteroids, comets).

All natural rock and artificial samples and alteration products will be characterized for the spectral library with commercial and dedicated spacecraft instrumentation (XRD, NIR, RAMAN, LIBS) under laboratory conditions. The main focus of the post-doctoral research work will be to perform laboratory alteration experiments and to carefully analyse the altered samples with various techniques (i.e., X-ray Diffraction, RAMAN, NIR, LIBS) in collaboration with other members of the PTAL project. The candidate contributes with building the spectral library based on the obtained experimental data, and studies planetary (Mars, small bodies) mineral alteration processes and conditions.

Qualifications:

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.

The candidate must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in geochemistry, mineralogy or related disciplines. We seek a candidate with a good understanding of the geological/geochemical evolution of Mars, while knowledge on small body composition or meteorites is an asset. The candidate should have experience in hydrothermal laboratory experiments and analytical methods (XRD in particular). Additional experience with either methods of spectroscopy (RAMAN, NIR, LIBS), characterization of clay minerals or geochemical and kinetic modelling is welcomed.

A good command of written and spoken English is required.

We offer:

  • Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (position code 1352) NOK 490 900 – 569 000 per year, depending on qualifications and seniority.
  • A professionally stimulating working environment.

Attractive welfare benefits and a generous pension agreement, in addition to Oslo’s family-friendly environment with its rich opportunities for culture and outdoor activities

Applications are invited for a position as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Special Needs Education in conjunction with the project on “The Biopolitics of Disability, Illness, and Animality: Cultural Representations and Societal Significance” (BIODIAL)

Job description

Short summary of the overall project
BIODIAL is financed by the FRIPRO program of the Norwegian Research Council. Its purpose is to investigate how various human and nonhuman lives are socially constructed as more or less valuable, and how such constructions are informed and troubled by cultural, literary, and social representations of disability, illness, and animality.The project brings interdisciplinary and intersectional attention to the ways that certain lives can be considered somehow less than “human”—whether the lives are those of disabled human beings, or nonhuman animals, or dehumanized and animalized human populations. Biopolitics is a theoretical field that offers new ways of bringing together disability studies, animal studies, and posthumanism, including Foucauldian-inspired work on social constructions of “life” that have become politicized terrain. The result of these constructions include dominant discourses about which forms of life should be allowed to live or die, as well as stigmatization and discrimination based upon what is considered “normal” or “natural”

The main purpose of the fellowship is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.
