Institutt for helse og samfunn (Helsam) er et av tre institutter ved Det medisinske fakultet. Instituttet spenner over ulike fag og består av seks avdelinger. Vi baserer vårt arbeid på en kompleks forståelse av sykdom, helse og helsesystemer. Både kultur, miljø, økonomi, samfunn og biologi spiller inn, direkte og indirekte. Vi har ansvar for syv masterprogram, ett bachelorprogram og for deler av profesjonsstudiet i medisin. Instituttet er lokalisert ved Ullevål sykehus og i Forskningsveien på Vindern og består av ca 470 ansatte, rundt 200 PhD-studenter og i underkant av 700 bachelor- og masterstudenter er knyttet til instituttet.

]]>
Om stillingen

Institutt for Helse og samfunn er kjennetegnet av en bred forståelse av sykdom, helse og helsetjenester der både kultur, miljø, samfunn og biologi spiller inn. Denne kompleksiteten reflekteres både i instituttets forskning, undervisning og formidling. Personer i vitenskapelige stillinger er formelt sett ansatt ved instituttet, men har arbeidssted og faglig forankring ved en av avdelingene. Denne stillingen er forankret ved Avdeling for samfunnsmedisin og global helse.

Avdeling for samfunnsmedisin og global helse er en tverrfaglig enhet som består av forskere med bakgrunn fra medisin, samfunnsfag og humaniora. Vår forskning foregår primært innenfor sosial-, samfunns-, arbeids- og trygdemedisin, med fokus på sosiale ulikheter i helse, forebyggende og helsefremmende arbeid, global helse, epidemiologi, medisinsk antropologi og medisinsk historie. Avdelingen er ansvarlig for undervisningen i samfunnsmedisin i medisinstudiet, et masterprogram i «International Community Health», veiledning av PhD kandidater og forskerkurs.

Undervisingsrelatert arbeid utgjør 45 % av stilllingen, mens 10 % er beregnet til administrative oppgaver. 

Avdeling for samfunnsmedisin og global helse er i ferd med å styrke sin innsats innen samfunnsmedisin. Vårt mål er å utvikle nyskapende tverrfaglig forskning innen samfunnsmedisin og utdanne studenter som aktivt kan bidra til å skape et mer helsefremmende og bærekraftig samfunn. Gjennom et tett samspill med tjenestene og brukere av tjenestene ønsker vi å medvirke til et samfunn bygget på kunnskap, ferdigheter og holdninger der sosial rettferdighet står i sentrum. Den som ansettes forventes å være sentral i dette arbeidet. Hovedtyngden av undervisningen vil være knyttet til profesjonsstudiet i medisin hvor samfunns- og sosialmedisin har stor betydning, men det er også aktuelt å utvikle tilsvarende kurs for masterprogrammet i «International Community Health» og fakultetets PhD program samt å bidra til å knytte sterkere bånd til fakultetets forskerlinje. Det er ønskelig at den som ansettes kan ta lederroller i undervisning, særlig som undervisningsleder i samfunnsmedisin.

Den som tilsettes skal lede og initiere forskning og forskningsveiledning, undervise studenter og stipendiater og påta seg eksamensarbeid samt administrative oppgaver etter de til enhver tid gjeldende regler. Fakultetet har ansvar for undervisning (inklusive eksamensarbeid) på profesjonsstudiet i medisin/odontologi og fakultetets bachelor- og mastergradsprogram. I tillegg har fakultetet ansvar for forskerutdanningen. Stillingsinnehaver plikter å utføre undervisning (inklusive ikke fagspesifikke veilederoppgaver som for eksempel PBL-grupper) i henhold til de behov fakultetet/instituttet til enhver tid har, innenfor de veiledende tidsmessige rammer som er satt for stillingen. Det forventes at den som tilsettes deltar i bedømmelsen av doktoravhandlinger, i bedømmelseskomiteer ved tilsettinger og kompetanseopprykk, og at vedkommende ved behov påtar seg oppgaven som disputasleder. Det forventes høye ambisjoner og kvalitet med hensyn til undervisning, forskning og formidling. Det forventes høy kvalitet på forskning og publisering i fagfellevurderte kanaler, fortrinnsvis internasjonale. Søker må beskrive sin forskningsprofil relatert til eksisterende forskning ved enheten. Det vil bli vektlagt hvordan søkers forskningsprofil har relevans for enhetens strategiske satsning. En tre-årig plan for utvikling av egen forskning relatert til stillingsbeskrivelse og kunngjøringstekst relevant for instituttets strategiske satsninger må utvikles og presenteres til nærmeste leder innen seks måneder etter ansettelse.

Vurderingsgrunnlaget for sakkyndig komité er vitenskapelige arbeider og andre faglige, pedagogiske og formidlingsmessige kvalifikasjoner. Kvalifikasjoner for ledelse og administrasjon vil også bli vektlagt. I komiteens rangering av kompetente søkere trekkes hele bredden av disse kvalifikasjoner inn og vurderes eksplisitt. Det legges særlig vekt på kvalifikasjoner som står sentralt i stillingsbeskrivelse. Pedagogiske og vitenskapelige kvalifikasjoner tillegges vekt foran øvrige kvalifikasjoner. Originalitet og nyskaping i vitenskapelig produksjon vektlegges foran totalt omfang og arbeider fra de siste 5 år tillegges større vekt enn eldre.

I den endelige vurdering og innstilling vil det bli lagt vekt på kvalifikasjoner relatert til stillingsbeskrivelse, sakkyndig komités vurdering, vurderinger av personlig egnethet for stillingen (basert på intervjuer og innhentede referanser), pedagogiske og faglige formidlingskvalifikasjoner (basert bl.a. på prøveforelesning), planer for forskning og ambisjoner for egen undervisningsaktivitet.

Søkere som ved tilsetting ikke kan dokumentere pedagogisk basiskompetanse må skaffe seg dette i løpet av to år.

Søkere må kunne undervise på norsk, svensk eller dansk innen to år, og må i mellomtiden kunne undervise på engelsk.

A Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (SKO 1352) is available at the Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages, University of Oslo. The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is funded by the Research Council of Norway and is associated with the research project “MULTIWRITE – Interactions Between First, Second and Third Languages” (project number: 324962). The candidate is expected to present a research project closely connected to the main project.

The languages a learner knows are all held by the same mind. Yet, language acquisition is largely studied one language at a time. In the MULTIWRITE project, we will study the language development of multilingual learners as a whole, and over time, in order to understand how their languages interact. We will also investigate how language teaching in schools can foster development across languages, and how teachers can collaborate across language subjects to increase pupils' learning. We will do this by investigating non-literary written production and teacher feedback in the first (Norwegian), second (English) and third (French/German/Spanish) languages over the first year of Norwegian upper secondary school, and by exploring teacher collaboration across language subjects.

The postdoctoral research fellow will contribute mainly to the part of the project that focuses on the interaction between learners’ languages in the development of syntactic complexity and text structure, and applicants are invited to submit a research proposal within this area. In addition to the students’ development in Norwegian and English, the project should consider at least one of the foreign languages commonly taught in Norwegian schools – French, German or Spanish. The research fellow is expected to use corpus-linguistic methods of investigation and will get access to the data collected by the research group. He/she will do some syntactic annotation of the texts and will oversee the work of the research assistant hired to help us with the annotation.

The research fellow will be a part of the project group and contribute to the discussion and development of ideas, publish individually and together with other project members, assist in the organization of workshops and contribute to the project blog.

Job description

Applications are invited for a 3 year position in a Research Fellowship as PhD Candidate in cancer chromatin and epigenetics.

The PhD candidate will be part of Chromatin Biology group at Division of Biochemistry, Institute of Basic Medical Sciences and the Norwegian Centre of Excellence, Centre for Cancer Cell Reprogramming (CanCell) at University of Oslo, Norway.

The candidate will be supervised in strong research environments that will provide a unique opportunity to learn and develop leading solutions in a highly competitive field. The epigenetic environment at the Division of Biochemistry has focus on transcription factors and epigenetic modifiers with cutting-edge research into chromatin organization in health and disease. Co-supervisor Marie Rogne has extensive experience molecular techniques described for the project, specifically with focus on epigenetic regulation in cancer, and co-supervisor Philippe Collas is a world leading scientist in the field of 3D chromatin regulation.

More about the position

Epigenetic driver genes and modifiers have strong effects on development and progression of several types of cancers. These are believed to profoundly alter the cancer cell’s global epigenetic landscape, although the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Through next-generation sequencing of genomic DNA and RNA, in combination with epigenetic techniques (ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, MNase-seq, Hi-C and related), we can generate genome-wide profiles of a number of features of nuclear DNA, such as histone modifications, chromatin openness, chromatin conformations and occupancy of DNA-binding proteins. The recent advancement of different single-cell sequencing technologies allows us to look at cell to cell variations in a population of cells or within a tissue. The goal of this PhD-project is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying chromatin interactions and gene regulation during tumour formation with a specific focus on rare cancers such as osteo- and liposarcomas.

To elucidate these mechanisms the candidate will use genetic, biochemical, and genome-wide approaches such as cultivation of different cancer cells, immunohistochemistry, Cut&Run, ATAC-seq, RNA-seq, proteomics, viability and toxicity assays, qRT-PCR, gene knockdown system, genome-engineering using CRISPR-Cas9 system, Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH) and Hi-C. The candidate will learn and perform the bioinformatics analyses of own data.The PhD student will collaborate with a team of researchers and bioinformaticians to ensure access to data, data analysis, development, and reproducibility.

The research fellow must take part in the Faculty of Medicine approved PhD program and is expected to complete the project within the set fellowship period. The main purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree

Through a network of 3000+ investment treaties, foreign investors can sue states for discrimination, confiscation of property, and unexpected legal changes, which has resulted in more than one thousand cases. Compensation has been granted or included in almost 500 cases, through arbitral awards and settlement agreements. However, investment arbitration has been criticised for its circumscription of states’ regulatory autonomy, lack of neutrality and transparency, and large compensation awards, which has fuelled an ongoing legitimacy crisis in the system.

While research on the origins and dynamics of investment arbitration is increasingly well-established, little is known about what happens in the post-litigation phase. The multidisciplinary project COPIID, based at PluriCourts Centre of Excellence and the Departtment for Public and International Law, University of Oslo, asks therefore three questions: (1) To what extent do states comply with decisions? (2) Why do they comply with such controversial decisions? (3) What are the implications for how we understand the behaviour of ISDS actors and other international courts/tribunals? and (4) What are the implications for ongoing UN and international reform processes on ISDS? The full project description is available on request.

The period of appointment runs for three years without teaching responsibilities.

More about the position

The successful applicant is expected to contribute to the project as follows:

  • Participate actively in the first three of five work packages, which involve (1) data gathering on and coding of the degree and nature of compliance; (2) data gathering on the compliance process for selected cases/countries together with qualitative analysis; and (3) quantitative analysis to examine the potential explanations for state compliance. This would involve coordinating the coding work, supporting data gathering and empirical analysis, and co-writing relevant publication outputs.
  • Participating in other work packages or related scholarly work after agreement with the project leader. The other work packages involve (4) comparative analysis and (5) actor behaviour and reform implications.
  • Assist in the development of the PITAD database, by coding new cases in international investment arbitration, improving the coding system, and/or ensuring good integration of compliance data within the existing PITAD database.
  • In cooperation with the project leader, coordinate the holding of regular digital meetings and annual/semester physical meetings for the project and assist with the strategic development and public communication and administration of the project.

Job description

A position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow is available at Department of Geosciences at The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, University of Oslo, Norway. The fellowship is for a period of 36 months. Starting date is as soon as possible.

Emissions from petroleum production stands for over 25% of Norway's total CO2 emissions, and these must be significantly reduced for the country to reach its ambitions in the Paris Agreement. Powering offshore platforms by renewables is a goal but relies on large-scale energy storage options for balancing out the supply-demand mismatch. In the present project we study whether energy, in the form of hydrogen (H2), can be stored safely underground in depleted oil and gas reservoirs offshore Norway. This opens for clean platform energy supply and a renewable offshore future for the country. The project involves a multi-disciplinary team of leading experts in the fields of geochemistry, petroleum- and gas technology and reservoir modelling from SINTEF, NORCE, University of Oslo and Queen Mary University of London. Through experiments and modelling, the team will collect fundamental research results to give a first indication of whether H2 storage in depleted reservoirs is feasible in Norway.

At UiO a three-year post-doctoral research position is open aimed at providing the HYSTORM project with small scale (microfluidics) reactive transport experiments on hydrogen flow and interactions in shale, and with corresponding pore-scale and thermodynamic modelling. A microfluidics setup employing geomaterials is available at the Reaction Laboratory at UiO, and this setup will be used and modified to allow the hydrogen experiments. The modelling will build on in-house reactive transport codes and combined with predictive SAFT EoS. The framework for the thermodynamic modelling is also available at UiO.

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

Qualification requirements

The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition is to be among Europe’s leading communities for research, education and innovation. 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.

Applicants must hold a degree equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in pore-scale reactive transport. Doctoral dissertation must be submitted for evaluation by the closing date. Only applicants with an approved doctoral thesis and public defence are eligible for appointment.

We seek applicants with a good understanding of pore-scale processes in geological materials, including a solid background in thermodynamics and modelling. A main focus is microfluidics experiments, and experience with such setups is required. Demonstrated knowledge in geology/mineralogy/geochemistry will be an asset.

A good command of written and spoken English is required.

We offer
  • Postdoctoral Research Fellowship (position code 1352) NOK 534 400 – 615 800 per year, depending on qualifications and seniority
  • A professionally stimulating working environment
  • Attractive welfare benefits and a generous pension agreement
  • Postdoctoral development programmes
  • Oslo’s family-friendly surroundings with their rich opportunities for culture and outdoor activities

Job description

We offer a 4-year postdoctoral positon which is funded by two complementary research projects under the theme of deep decarbonization. Ambitious policy goals of reaching net-zero GHG emissions by mid-century requires that ongoing energy transitions grow in scope and speed. Exploring these qualitative changes in ongoing energy transitions will be key pillars of the postdoc position.

More about the position

Increasing scope involves transitions in hard-to-decarbonize sectors as waste, cement, and chemicals where solutions as carbon capture and hydrogen are discussed. The project “Socio-technical drivers, opportunities and challenges for large-scale CCUS (CaptureX)” (2021-2024) funds 2 years of the position. In collaboration with researchers at TIK, SINTEF and NTNU, the postdoc will analyze carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) innovation systems in a Northern European context to identify opportunities and challenges for this set of technologies to help meet net-zero emission goals. Empirically the work will take the Norwegian "Longship" and "Northern Lights" CCUS projects as starting points. The work includes analysis of actor strategies, technology value chain dynamics, and opportunities for local value creation. The full project description is available upon request.

Accelerating energy transitions is a central research topic in the Norwegian Centre for Energy Transition Studies (NTRANS) which also funds the postdoc position. NTRANS is an 8-year (2019-2027) research center for environmental-friendly energy funded by the Norwegian Research Council. The postdoc will work within Research Area 2 entitled “Accelerating the Energy Transition”. It explores different aspects of accelerating transitions organized around 3 work packages (WPs) including understanding the pace of diffusion of key zero-emission innovations (WP1), augmenting resource mobilization for energy transition e.g. via incumbent firm reorientation and change in the financial sector, and whether and how transformative innovation policy can accelerate transition processes across multiple sectors in parallel (WP3). While the work in the CaptureX project is well-defined, the work on NTRANS is relatively open for the postdoc to develop her/his own postdoc research project and plan by building on and extending elements of Research Area 2. It is expected that the applicants have reviewed the project description for NTRANS RA2, and can describe how their research will contribute to the work and the goals set for the Center. The full project description is available on TIK’s website, follow link.

Depending on the preference of the candidate, up to 1 year of the position might be dedicated to teaching and supervision duties in TIK’s master programmes in science and innovation studies. Candidates who have some previous experience in teaching and supervision, should mention this in their application letter. The NTRANS-part of the project will in this case be reduced correspondingly.

Qualification requirements

The candidates will have to fulfill the following criteria:

  • A PhD degree in a social science discipline, with relevance for the area of innovation studies (innovation studies, sustainability transitions studies, management studies, sociology, economics, etc.)
  • Only candidates that have submitted their PhD before the closing date for this position can apply. Appointment is dependent on the public defence of the doctoral thesis being approved
  • Demonstrated experience with relevant theories and methods for studies of innovation and sustainability transitions is an advantage
  • Experience in teaching and supervision at bachelor and/or master level will be positive
  • Knowledge of a Scandinavian language is an advantage but not strictly necessary
  • High-level proficiency in written and spoken English is required
  • The ability to perform high impact academic work, demonstrated by previous publications in relevant journals, will be positive

It is expected that the successful candidate participate actively in the CaptureX and NTRANS project groups at the University of Oslo, and contribute to a high standard of collegiality and the TIK Centre’s working environment. Residence in or close to Oslo is thus expected.

In assessing applicants, we will emphasize each candidates’ academic background and potential, as well as motivation and match with the projects. Interviews will be performed as part of the selection process.

We offer
  • Salary NOK 526 000 – 608 200 per annum depending on qualifications
  • A pleasant and stimulating working environment
  • Attractive welfare benefits, including possibilities for University’s kindergarten and a generous pension agreement, in addition to Oslo’s family-friendly environment with its rich opportunities for culture and outdoor activities
  • The University of Oslo offers a mentoring programme for female postdoctors
How to apply

Job description

Applicants are invited for a 2-year position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Micro- and Nanoscale Deformation of Geological Materials to be based at the Njord Centre, Department of Geosciences and Department of Physics.

The appointment is a fulltime position and is made for a period of two years.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Fellow period at the University of Oslo.

More about the position

The postdoc will investigate transient high-stress deformation in the lower crust associated with the earthquake cycle. Field-based studies establish that lower crustal seismicity is generally linked to brittle failure of dry, strong rocks under fluid-absent conditions. This implies build-up of differential stresses to GPa levels. The end goal of this project is to determine if the rock microstructure can preserve a record of the up-to-GPa-level stresses required for earthquake generation in the lower crust. To answer this question, the postdoc will employ high-resolution microstructural analyses (e.g., HR-EBSD), nano-indentation experiments, and modelling, to identify the signature and estimate the magnitude of transient high stresses. Measurements of residual stresses with HR-EBSD will be integrated with mechanical tests and models, and the cumulative dataset will shed light on the origin of local stress heterogeneities in fault rocks and on their links to the earthquake cycle. The postholder will have the opportunity to focus on one or more of the main research methodologies employed, depending on her/his background and research plans.

The position is funded by Njord, a cross-disciplinary Centre for Studies of the Physics of the Earth at UiO, and the project is run in collaboration with Luca Menegon, Luiza Angheluta, François Renard, Bjørn Jamtveit and Kristina Dunkel (UiO) and David Wallis (University of Cambridge). The project will make use of microbeam analytical techniques (including HR-EBSD) at the Goldschmidt Lab at UiO, a recently established Norwegian national infrastructure for the advanced characterization of solid Earth material, as well as of the new nano-indentation laboratory installed at UiO.

The postholder will be encouraged to develop a leadership role within the project, present internal progress reports, present and discuss results at national and international conferences, write up findings for publication in peer-reviewed journals, and suggest planning for further work. In addition, the postholder will have the opportunity to engage with outreach activities aimed at creating high[1]quality educational content (e.g., videos, websites) on the subject of earthquakes and rock deformation.

Job description

A position as researcher is available at the Center for Materials Science and Nanotechnology/Department of Chemistry.

The position is for a period of 2 years. Preferred starting date is second quarter 2022.

We are seeking a Researcher to join the Catalysis Section with a genuine interest in zeolite science. Key competence areas are diffraction methods; multiscale simulations; as well as experimental studies of the zeolite catalyzed conversion of methanol to hydrocarbons.

This position is part of the TomoCAT project, which is funded by the Research Council of Norway. The project is a collaboration between the University of Oslo (project owner), the University of Torino, and the Danish industrial partner Haldor Topsøe A/S. The overreaching objective of TomoCAT is to develop the tools that might pave the way for a more efficient utilization of industrial catalysts. Such catalysts are always shaped into millimeter sized catalyst objects suitable for large scale industrial use.

The key feature of TomoCAT is to achieve a description of how various chemical phenomena, such as catalyst deactivation, occur in these shaped objects, resolved both in time and space. Time in this context means the time of use in an industrial process, whereas space means spatial resolution across shaped catalyst objects. This requires a combination of catalyst preparation, extensive basic and spectroscopic characterization and performance measurements in the home laboratory, utilization of national research infrastructures and very advanced synchrotron methods for 3D imaging and tomography, as well as kinetic and diffusion simulations. In this position, you will be part of the international and highly motivated Catalysis Section, which consists of approximately 30 professors, researchers, post docs, technical and administrative staff, PhD students and master students.

The position is based in the Catalysis Section. Our vision is to carry out rational design of new and improved catalysts based on fundamental mechanistic insights studies. The Catalysis Section is subdivided into three activities: the zeolite group synthesizes and characterizes zeolite and zeotype materials and studies catalytic reactions over those materials; the MOF-group does the same with metal-organic frameworks; the homogenous catalysis group synthesizes metal-organic complexes and studies their catalytic activity.

The position is associated with the Center for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN). SMN is a cross disciplinary center, promoting research in materials science and nanotechnology. The Centre is an international player on basic science within functional materials and nanoscience, with application within energy, lifescience, environment and ICT.

]]>
Job description

Two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (SKO 1352) are available at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo.

The Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is funded by the Research Council of Norway and is associated with the project The Kantian Foundations of Democracy, 324272 - FORSKER21. The candidate is expected to present a research project closely connected to the main project.

Kantian Foundations of Democracy aims to provide the first large-scale analysis of the theory of democracy of the neglected "Kantian School". These were philosophers active in Germany in the 1790s, and included Erhard, Maimon, Heydenreich, Bergk, Reinhold, Tieftrunk, Feuerbach, Jakob, Reimarus, Schlegel, and the early Fichte. Their theories are notable for bringing out fully the Kantian concepts of right, equality, autonomy, and popular sovereignty; for their sophisticated analysis of enlightenment in the public sphere, and their support for popular revolutionary movements. The aim is not just to gain new historical knowledge, but to contribute to improving our understanding of Kant's basic principles, as well as those of democracy more broadly.

More about the position

The successful candidate will examine either Kantian principles of right and their connection to political rights (Task 1), Kantian principles of popular sovereignty (Task 2), or Kantian views of reform and popular revolution (Task 3). Projects may engage with all four crosscutting questions of Kantian Foundations of Democracy (please see project description). Projects may focus more narrowly on one or two of the Kantians, but comparisons to other Kantians and Kant should be included.

The research will apply methodology from the fields of philosophy, political theory, legal theory, and intellectual history. An interdisciplinary background in the above-mentioned fields is an advantage. The successful candidate is expected to produce three peer-reviewed articles or a monograph during the two-year period.

The position is available for a period of 2 years.

The candidate is expected to develop a project description, which must be submitted as a part of the application. 

The successful candidates are expected to be based in Oslo during the project period, starting 1 April 2022. They will actively collaborate with the project’s team, and participate in the Practical Philosophy Group and other relevant departmental activities.

The main purpose of postdoctoral research fellowships is to qualify researchers for work in higher academic positions within their disciplines.

Requirements
  • PhD  or equivalent academic qualifications with a specialization in philosophy, political theory, legal theory, intellectual history, or other areas if relevant for the project
  • The candidate's research project must be closely connected to Kantian Foundations of Democracy
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English
  • German language skills sufficient for analysing philosophical literature
  • Personal suitability and motivation for the position

The doctoral dissertation must be submitted for evaluation by the closing date. Appointment is dependent on the public defence of the doctoral thesis being approved.

In the evaluation of the applications, emphasis will be placed on:

  • The research project’s scientific merit and novelty, and its relevance for Kantian Foundations of Democracy
  • The applicant’s estimated academic and personal ability to carry out the project within the allotted time frame and to contribute to Kantian Foundations of Democracy
  • Good co-operative skills, and the ability to successfully join in academic collaboration within and across disciplines

Job description

Position as post doc available at Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis, Department of Biosciences.

The position is for a period of 3 years. Starting date no later than 01.03.2022

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

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate for a three-year post doc position as part of this exciting collaborative research project between the University of Oslo, University of Nottingham (UK) and the Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW). The researcher will help develop our understanding of the evolutionary origins of human-commensalism in Passer sparrows. The project will focus on two key questions; 1) does human commensalism have a single origin within the house sparrow? and 2) has adaptation to a human-commensal niche occurred in parallel in the tree sparrow?

We aim to combine morphological and genomic data from existing datasets, museum samples and ongoing fieldwork to address the core aims of the project. The successful candidate will be allowed to choose aspects of the larger program as best fits their skills and research interests. They will also be encouraged to develop additional, complementary avenues of research. The researcher will oversee population-level whole genome resequencing from the wet-lab to data interrogation and will be expected to be proficient in bioinformatics (R/Unix/Python) with documented skills in genomic analyses. A PhD in population genetics/genomics, evolutionary genomics, evolutionary biology or a related subject is necessary. Experience with working with birds and bird genomes would be helpful but is not a requirement. The researcher will be based at the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis at the University of Oslo but will also be expected to visit the University of Nottingham (UK) for additional training and support with research visits to the Netherlands. There will likely be opportunities for fieldwork in Central and Southern Asia. The working language of the research group is English.

It is becoming exceedingly clear that humans have been, and still are, drastically altering the planet. Although human activity typically has a negative effect on biodiversity, some species have rapidly adapted to novel niches opened up by human activity. The house sparrow (Passer domesticus) is a successful human commensal that thrives in human created niches. It has adapted to urban and agricultural habitats on every continent except Antarctica. Intriguingly, a number of other Passer sparrows are also human commensals having likely experienced similar selective pressures; one of the most striking is the Eurasian tree sparrow (Passer montanus), which is an obligate commensal across much of East Asia. The overarching aim of this newly funded project (Norwegian Research Council) is to determine the evolutionary causes and consequences of human commensalism in Passer sparrows using whole genome resequencing, high resolution phenotyping and extensive fieldwork.

The main purpose of a postdoctoral fellowship is to provide the candidates with enhanced skills to pursue a scientific top position within or beyond academia. To promote a strategic career path, all postdoctoral research fellows are required to submit a professional development plan no later than one month after commencement of the postdoctoral period.

The Master's degree must normally have been obtained and the final evaluation must be available by the application deadline. In exceptional cases, we can consider applications from candidates who do not yet have an MA degree, but who are close to completing one. If so, the degree must be awarded by the time the position is taken up
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English, see Language requirements
  • Personal suitability and motivation for the position

To be eligible for admission to the doctoral programmes at the University of Oslo, applicants must, as a minimum, have completed a five-year graduation course (Master’s degree or equivalent), including a Master’s thesis of at least 30 ECTS. In special cases, the Faculty may grant admission on the basis of a one-year Master course following an assessment of the study programme’s scope and quality.

Project description 

The position is part of the Norwegian National Research Council project “PhotoSense” that conducts ground breaking research into the use of artificial membranes with embedded photosensitive proteins for retinal prosthetics. To carefully characterize the performance of these membranes, this postdoc project is to develop a CMOS integrated circuit which is able to sense chemical, electrical and optical signals on its surface with high spatial resolution. Even more specifically, we are looking to implement an array composed of photo diodes, ion sensitive field effect transistors (ISFET) and surface electrodes. To test the light sensitivity and electrochemical properties of the biomolecular membranes under development they are to be placed upon this CMOS sensor and thus be carefully characterized.

Job description

We offer a 35 months position within the research project "MarMib: Impact of marine microplastic associated biofilms on environmental and human health", funded by The Norwegian Research Council.

No one can be appointed for more than one Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oslo. Starting date as soon as possible.

The project aims to assess the linkage between biofilms forming on microplastics (MP), spread of antimicrobial resistance genes (AMRGs) in biofilms and marine ecology. The primary objective is to describe how bacteria, and their ecological function, associated with MP may differ based on different amount of MP, antibiotic and metal pollution in the waters and geographic location (from tropics to artic). Plasmid-borne AMRGs are of particular interest since they have a potential for rapid spread. Understanding how the plasmid resistome varies in Asia, with heavy MP pollution and high antibiotic consumption, from other areas such as Northen Norway, is also a part of the primary objectives.

In addition to this position located at the University of Oslo, Department of Bioscience with Prof. Alexander Eiler, a second post-doc position within the project with a highly similar profile is offered at Genøk – Centre for Biosafety in Tromsø and Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in Potsdam, Germany (see). Candidates may apply for both positions.

In this highly collaborative project, the successful candidate is required to participate in and run milestone activities in the different work packages in MarMib. The post-doctoral fellow will oversee the microbiome sequencing, and perform metagenome (including the meta-plasmidome) and single cell analysis in collaboration with the Norwegian Sequencing Centre’s new single cell facility. The candidate is expected to make data and analysis code available to the research consortia with collaborators from Vietnam, South Africa, Costa Rica, Germany and Estonia who will provide samples and data from across the globe. The main envisioned research direction is on evolutionary dynamics of the plasmidome in the plastisphere; here a combination of state of the art metagenomic and single cell genomics is expected to give new insights into the resistome dynamics of marine particles and their associated risks. Thus, we seek a candidate with excellent skills in omics data analysis and strong interest in eco-evolutionary research.

Besides the duties described above, the recruited person will be expected to participate in bioinformatics teaching and graduate student supervision. The new researcher will be participating in MarMib research network and be involved in science communications and developing a communication platform for the project. The person will be encouraged to secure independent funding and will be allowed to dedicate some time to administer self-initiated research activities. It is expected that the requited persons will be able to complete the project in the course of the period of employment.

Job description

Applicants are invited for a 3 year position in a Research Fellowship as PhD Candidate in Geophysics to be based at the Njord Centre, a cross-disciplinary research unit at the interface between Physics and Geosciences at the University of Oslo.

Starting date for the possition is between April and September 2022.

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

More about the position

This position is open in the project "Break-Through Rocks" funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

When brittle materials are loaded, numerous microfractures may nucleate, grow, and coalesce before a major catastrophic rupture occurs. This mechanical behavior controls the deformation of various materials such as cements, metals, ice, and rocks in the Earth’s crust where earthquakes occur. However, the origin and evolution of these microfractures are not understood and could be used to monitor and predict the occurrence of major earthquakes. Using state-of-the-art rock physics experiments performed at the ESRF, the candidate will perform deformation experiments of rocks approaching failure (4D X-ray microtomography, acoustic emission monitoring, using new rock deformation) and analyze experimental data and compare them with natural rocks collected in fault zones. The main question will be to identify how the precursors to failure in rocks and other brittle materials localize on the future fracture plane when approaching failure and to what extent water may control this process.

At the Njord Centre, the candidate will be supervised by François Renard, professor of Geosciences, and Dr. Jess McBeck, researcher in geophysics. The candidate will perform several short- and long term internships at the ESRF under the supervision of Dr. Benoit Cordonnier

The fellowship period is 3 years and devoted to carrying out research in the framework of the European Research Council (ERC) funded project entitled "Break-Through Rocks".

The research fellow must take part in the approved PhD program at the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo and is expected to complete the project within the set fellowship period. The main purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.

The applicant must, in collaboration with the supervisors, within three months after employment, have worked out a complete project description to be attached to the application for admission to the doctoral program. For more information, please see our web site Application and admission - the road to MN PhD - The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences (uio.no).
