Job description

There is a vacant position at the Department of Sociology and Human Geography for a Postdoctoral Fellow (SKO 1352) in Sociology or equivalent. The position is for a period of 2.5 years.

The position is part of the research project "Transnationalisation of anti-immigration movements in Europe (Anti-Mig)" funded by the Research Council of Norway (RCN). The Anti-Mig project aims to examine the transnational dimensions of anti-immigration movements, the interplay between informal mobilization and formal institutions, and the resulting societal change. Three overall concerns inform the project’s research questions: a focus on interactions, framing, and outcomes. With a combination of survey data, internet based data, face-to-face-interviews and case studies, the project will highlight the transnational dimensions of the anti-migration movement in five European countries: Norway, Germany, Poland, Italy and the UK.

The Anti-Mig project will raise questions such as: What are the main forms of – and platforms for – transnational interaction among anti-immigration movements, and what impact does transnational interaction have on alliance-building? What is the dominant political-ideological framing of anti-immigration movements, and how are frames diffused transnationally while simultaneously adapted to specific national contexts? What are the main outcomes pursued by the anti-immigration movement, to what extent are those shared transnationally, and does movement success in one country enhance the likelihood of success elsewhere?  

The successful candidate will primarily contribute to WP4 with responsibility for the case studies in Poland and Germany.

The Anti-Mig project is collaborative research project led by Kristian Berg Harpviken at PRIO, and with participating researchers from UiO (Katrine Fangen at the Department of Sociology and Human Geography and Pietro Castelli at C-REX) and the University of Sussex (Alexandra Lewicki).

More about the position

The main target for the postdoctoral project will be to develop methods for robust and reliable deep learning. During the last decade, deep learning has reached state-of-the-art accuracy in a plethora of machine learning tasks. Yet, deep learning is still considered a black box, and it is widely acknowledged that most deep learning-based algorithms are fragile to tiny perturbations of their input, out-of-distribution data and domain shift. Thus, creating robust and reliable methods remains a challenging problem. The target for the postdoctoral project will be to address these challenges and develop robust, reliable and potentially also explainable deep learning methods. The main application area will be in image analysis.

The position is in the Digital Signal Processing and Image Analysis Group, Section for Machine Learning, Department of Informatics.

Universitetet i Oslo er Norges eldste og høyest rangerte forsknings- og undervisningsinstitusjon med 28 000 studenter og 7000 ansatte. Faglig bredde og internasjonalt anerkjente forskningsmiljøer gjør UiO til en viktig samfunnsaktør.

 

Nordisk institutt for sjørett (NIFS) er en av fem grunnenheter ved Det juridiske fakultet. Instituttet er et ressurssenter for forskning innen sjørett, forsikringsrett, energi- og klimarett i Norden, så vel som i mer grunnleggende formuerett og utvalgte deler av forvaltningsretten. NIFS er også vertskap for forskergruppen i naturressursrett. NIFS har en internasjonal profil, med studenter og samarbeidspartnere fra hele verden.

Om stillingen

Ved Nordisk institutt for sjørett, Universitetet i Oslo, er det ledig en stilling som stipendiat i rettsvitenskap
(SKO 1017). Tiltredelse etter avtale. Stillingen inngår i prosjektet Consequences of Investments for National Security (COINS). Arbeidssted er Nordisk institutt for sjørett.

Tilsetting kan skje for fire år, hvilket forutsetter 75 % forskning og 25 % undervisningsplikt, eller for tre år uten undervisningsplikt. Tilsetting for fire år forutsetter at kandidaten kan fylle et udekket undervisningsbehov ved fakultetet.

Stillingen er eksternt finansiert med midler fra Norges Forskningsråd under programmet SAMRISK II – Samfunnssikkerhet. Prosjektet ledes av Norsk utenrikspolitisk institutt og direktør Ulf Sverdrup er prosjektleder. Om prosjektet, se: 

https://www.nupi.no/nupi/Om-NUPI/Prosjekter-sentre/Consequences-of-Investments-for-National-Security

Stillingen inviterer til rettsvitenskapelig nybrottsarbeid på et politisk viktig felt. I feltet møtes ønsket om utenlandsinvesteringer med behovet for beskyttelse av nasjonal sikkerhet. Sentralt i den rettslige delen av prosjektet vil være en analyse av deler av den norske lov om nasjonal sikkerhet som trådte i kraft 1. januar 2019, særlig kapittel 10 i loven. Denne bør ses i forhold til næringsberedskapsloven og f.eks. energilovens og petroleumslovens regler om ekstraordinære situasjoner. Den norske lovgivningen bør vurderes i sammenheng med det norske grunnlovsvernet og den europeiske menneskerettskonvensjonen vern av eiendomsretten, og kanskje mer generelt som spørsmål om grensene for investeringsvern. Lovligheten av samfunnssikkerhetstiltak kan også reise EØS-rettslige og WTO-rettslige spørsmål så vel som spørsmål om respekt for privatliv og kommunikasjon.

Mesteparten av forskerne i COINS-prosjektet har stats- eller samfunnsvitenskapelig bakgrunn, men det rettsvitenskapelige studiet av den norske reguleringen vil gi viktige innspill til resten av forskerne i prosjektet.

Doktorgradsprosjektet vil trekke veksler på de øvrige arbeidspakkene i prosjektet og det forventes at den som ansettes samarbeider med de andre forskerne i COINS.

Kvalifikasjonskrav
  • Stipendiatstillingen er en utdanningsstilling og skal lede fram til en ph.d.-grad fra Universitetet i Oslo. Det er en forutsetning at den som tilsettes kvalifiserer for opptak på fakultetets doktorgradsprogram.

Job description

Position as PhD Research Fellow in Informatics/Computer Science available at the Department of Informatics.

The fellowship period is 3 years devoted to research education within a project entitled Building Sustainable Machine Learning Applications. Candidates may be offered one additional year by the Department of Informatics; the 4 years position then entails a compulsory work load of 25% that may consist of teaching, supervision duties, and research assistance.

No one can be appointed for more than one PhD Research Fellowship period at the University of Oslo. Starting date no later than 01.10.2020.

More about the position

Background:

There has been an explosion of applications using Machine Learning (ML) approaches in recent years. Such kinds of applications require specific software engineering techniques, as also documented by Google research.

ML applications usually work well in the beginning, but, as the overall software systems grow in complexity, it becomes difficult to evolve and maintain them for engineers and data scientists. Many organizations implement ML applications, and are eager to understand how to build them in a sustainable way, without accumulating technical debt, which can be very disruptive.

Project description:

The candidate will investigate novel techniques to code, structure and test ML applications that are easy to maintain and evolve in the future. Examples of emerging architectural techniques are microservices. The specific techniques are not predefined and will be chosen in accordance with the results of a first investigation of the practical needs of ML practitioners.

The project will investigate challenges faced in the development of a machine learning platform ImmuneML for disease diagnostics based on interrogation of the adaptive immune system. ImmuneML integrates developments connected to a large number of complementary machine learning research projects (five local PhD students, two research centers ImmunoLingo and CoDirc, and two international collaborations). The platform is set to be launched in the first half of 2020 and is planned to be continually maintained and expanded through the coming decade.

In addition, several organizations in the Nordics and in Europe, in contact with the supervisors of the project, are interested in further advances on this topic, and the candidate will have the possibility to develop and test the results with some of them during the PhD project.

Impact and employability for the candidate:

This research is critical to improve the ways of working of the ever-growing plethora of organizations (public and commercial) using ML. Therefore, the candidate will acquire specialized knowledge that is (and will be) critical for many years in the future, relevant both for industrial and academic careers. The contact with industry during the project will also give possibilities of future collaborations.

Supervision:

The main supervisor for the candidate will be Antonio Martini, Associate Professor in Software Engineering and leading expert in the research field of technical debt (which is related to practical development of maintainable and evolvable software). Associate Prof. Martini has several ongoing collaborations with companies in the Nordics and in Europe, collaborates with several international Universities, especially Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. Associate Prof. Martini is very active in the research community, with several roles as Program and General Chair for relevant conferences related to the topic of the position. He will assure solid supervision on software engineering techniques, together with the software engineering group, and will provide the candidate with access to a broad academic and industrial network.

More about the position

The digital transformation of modern society effects all areas of our daily life. This includes also health services for which security and privacy concerns are especially relevant. Industrial nations have spent huge amount of money and effort to build secure eHealth infrastructures. However, still many shortcomings and weaknesses can be observed. This is even more relevant for developing countries, where eHealth is becoming more and more important, but, due to limited resources, security and privacy aspects are very often neglected.

The successful candidate for this PhD fellowship position will contribute to research in the field of privacy and security of eHealth system.

The fellowship position is located at the Department of Informatics, and specifically in the research group for “Digital Security” (SEC). The SEC group works on different topics in the area of information security including cyber threat intelligence, privacy and cryptography, and hosts the UiO Ethical Hacking Team. The PhD fellowship will be part of a collaboration with the research group “Information Systems” (IS). The IS group coordinates the development of the open source eHealth platform DHIS2, and is involved in a range of implementation activities in the global south. Both groups manage several research projects with national and international partners from both industry and academia. We have a dynamic and interactive working environment with relatively good gender balance, consisting of multiple PhD and Post Doc researchers in addition to full-time and part-time staff.

Only citizens from European countries and NATO countries are eligible to be hired for this position and therefore only applicants with citizenships from the aforementionted countries can apply for this position.

The 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 Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas embraces four disciplines: Philosophy, Classical Languages (Greek and Latin), History of Ideas and Art History. The Department is also responsible for the introductory philosophy courses, obligatory for all students attending study programmes at the University of Oslo. The Department has about 110 employees.

]]>
Job description

1-2 Doctoral Research Fellowships (SKO 1017) in Developmental Pragmatics are available at the Department of Philosophy, Classics, History of Art and Ideas, University of Oslo. The PhD positions are associated with two different projects and the applications should address the specifics of these (particulars below). The projects will work towards the same overarching goal of providing new theoretical and empirical insights into pragmatic development and non-literal uses of language. Both projects are led by Ingrid Lossius Falkum and there will be a joint project team.

The Doctoral Research Fellowship funded by the Faculty of Humanities is associated with the ERC project DEVCOM - The Developing Communicator: Pragmatics, Sense Conventions and Non-Literal Uses of Language (ERC StG no. 853211), led by Ingrid Lossius Falkum. DEVCOM aims to provide an account of the stages and factors involved in children’s developing pragmatic competence with non-literal uses of language, including 1) lexical innovation, 2) lexical modulation and 3) figurative language, focusing on both production and comprehension. DEVCOM investigates the hypothesis that children’s growing sensitivity to sense conventions, which determine the publicly accepted meaning of words in their language, impedes their pragmatic reasoning with non-literal uses in the pre-school years. The empirical data will be gleaned from experimental studies using eye-tracking, elicitation and behavioral paradigms.

The Doctoral Research Fellowship funded by the Research Council of Norway (RCN) is associated with the project Creativity and Convention in Pragmatic Development: Typical and Atypical Perspectives (FINNUT project no. 302083), also led by Ingrid Lossius Falkum. The overarching framework is shared with DEVCOM but the project focuses more specifically on the atypical pragmatic development in Autism Spectrum Disorder and includes irony and implicature among its objects of study.

The project team will have access to the Socio-Cognitive Laboratory of the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan (MultiLing), located in the Department of Linguistics and Scandinavian Studies. MultiLing’s Socio-Cognitive Laboratory has an eye-tracker, an EEG system, and a video studio https://www.hf.uio.no/multiling/english/topics/lab/.

The candidates are expected to propose an individual research project closely related to one or more of the topics studied within the overall framework of DEVCOM and/or Creativity and Convention in Pragmatic Development, and applicants may expect to further develop their project with inputs from the research team if hired.

More about the position

The persons appointed 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 environment or network and contribute to its development. Read more about the doctoral degree.

The appointments are for a duration of 3 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 linguistics, philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, special needs education or other relevant disciplines. 
  • The candidate’s research project must be closely related to DEVCOM and/or Creativity and Convention in Pragmatic Development.
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English. Proficiency in a Scandinavian language is an advantage.
  • 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 MA course following an assessment of the study programme’s scope and quality.

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

  • The project's scientific merit, research-related relevance and innovation
  • The applicant's estimated academic and personal ability to complete the project within the time frame and contribute to the research of the project team
  • The applicant's ability to complete research training
  • Good collaboration skills and an ability to join interdisciplinary academic communities

Applicants who have recently graduated with excellent results may be given preference.

We offer
How to apply

The application must include:

  • Application letter describing the applicant’s qualifications and motivation for the position. The applicant should explain how his or her research interests fit with those of DEVCOM and/or Creativity and Convention in Pragmatic Development.
  • Curriculum Vitae (with a list of education, positions, teaching experience, administrative experience and other qualifying activities, including a list of publications, if any)
  • Transcript of records of your Bachelor’s and Master's degrees. Applicants with education from a foreign university must attach an explanation of their university's grading system

Job description

Applications are invited for a 3-4 year position in a Research Fellowship as a PhD Candidate in  bioinformatics, chromatin and epigenetics to be based at the Institute of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Oslo.

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.

More about the position

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, chromosome conformations and occupancy of DNA-binding proteins. Sequencing can also reveal information on genome variation, gene splicing, DNA methylation, and gene expression, to name a few. Different single-cell sequencing technologies allow us to understand cell to cell variations in a population of cells or within a tissue. The integration of datasets enables interrogation of relations between biological molecules and processes in various biological contexts such as cancer. Such data integration is a potent strategy to create novel models that can be tested experimentally, improving our understanding of complex biological/disease mechanisms.

A focus of this PhD project will be on the non-coding part of the genome. Regulatory effects may be due to modifications to the local chromatin context, through disruption or enhancement of transcription factor binding, or through regional or global DNA conformation changes. The PhD candidate will Integrate of datasets covering the non-coding part of the genome to understand basic gene-regulatory mechanisms and how these may be perturbed through human DNA variation in cancer. Moreover, our group has generated several single-cell datasets and we are in process of setting up CRISPRi screens as a CanCell collaborative effort. Although the potential gains from integrating multiple types of genomic information is widely appreciated, it is not yet exploited to its full extent, in particular for the new single-cell technologies. The PhD student will collaborate with a team of researchers and bioinformaticians to ensure access to data, data analysis, development and reproducibility.

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 research groups with focus on transcription factors and epigenetic modifiers with cutting-edge research into chromatin organization in health and disease. Co-supervisor Dr. Sigve Nakken (CanCell, OUH) has extensive bioinformatics experience, specifically with computational analysis of genetic variation in cancer, and co-supervisor Dr. Anthony Mathelier (NCMM, UiO) is a leading scientist in computational biology and gene regulation.

The fellowship period is up to 4 years, with 3 years devoted to research education. The position may allow for a compulsory work load of 25% that consists of teaching and supervision duties and research assistance.

The research fellow must take part in the Faculty’s 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.

The applicant must, in collaboration with her/his supervisors, within two months after employment, have worked out a complete project description to be attached to the application for admission to the doctoral program.

Job description

Applications are invited for a 3-4 year PhD-research Fellowship as PhD Candidate in neuroscience to be based at the Department for Molecular Medicine (Anatomy) University of Oslo (UiO).

The Research fellowship is funded by UiO and will be linked to the project "Aquaporin water channels in health and disease".

More about the position

The fellowship period is up to 4 years, with 3 years devoted to research education. The position entails a compulsory work load of 25% that consists of teaching and supervision duties and research assistance. The fellowship period is devoted to carrying out a project on the role of aquaporin water channels in Parkinson’s disease. Aquaporins are channel-forming membrane proteins expressed throughout the body. Brain contains several aquaporins including aquaporin-4 (AQP4) and aquaporin-9 (AQP9). We have previously shown that both these aquaporins are involved in the pathophysiology of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease (PD). PD is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by gradual loss of dopaminergic neurons of substantia nigra. More than 90% of PD cases have unknown etiology and it is believed that external factors such as toxins might play a role in the development of the disease. A key question is what makes the dopaminergic neurons of substantia nigra especially vulnerable to external toxins. We have recently shown that mice with genetic deletion of AQP9 (AQP9-KO) are more protected when exposed to an intracerebral injection of a parkinsonian toxin. In this project, we will explore the mechanisms behind this protection. The project will include use of mouse models combined with molecular biologic and microscopic techniques.

The research fellow must take part in the Faculty’s 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.

The applicant must, in collaboration with her/his supervisor, within 3 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: https://www.med.uio.no/forskning/phd/

Qualification requirements
  • A Master’s degree (120 ECTS) or an equivalent qualification in molecular biology, neuroscience or similar, minimum grade B (ECTS grading scale) or equivalent. The Master’s degree must include a thesis of at least 30 ECTS.
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English
  • Extensive hands-on experience with at least one of the following experimental techniques: molecular biology (RNA, DNA work, qPCR), Western blotting, immunohistochemistry
  • Candidates with prior knowledge about neuroscience and/or experience of working with laboratory animals, preparation of cell cultures or sectioning will be prioritized

About the Centre of Excellence (CoE) NORMENT

At the Institute of Clinical Medicine, the Centre of Excellence (CoE) NORMENT - University of Oslo, there is a post-doctoral research fellowship position available. The CoE NORMENT runs a multicenter study involving all psychiatric hospital departments in Oslo and several research groups at the University of Oslo (UiO). The purpose is to study how biological/genetic, psychological and environmental factors contribute to severe mental disorders. The CoE NORMENT has used their infrastructure for clinical evaluations, neuropsychological testing, MRI brain imaging and biobanking to collect a large database.

Job description

Applications are invited for two 2-year Postdoctoral Fellow positions. The positions will examine the structure and function of cardiac muscle cells, and be based at the the Institute for Experimental Medical Research (IEMR) located at Oslo University Hospital / University of Oslo.

Contraction and relaxation of cardiac muscle cells, and thus the whole heart, are critically dependent on dyads. These structures allow efficient control of calcium release into the cytosol, and also its removal. Dyads are formed gradually during development and break down during disease. However, the precise nature of dyadic structure is unclear, as are the triggers and consequences of altering dyadic integrity during diseases such as heart failure. The postdoctoral project is aimed at examining these questions, and will employ advanced cellular imaging techniques (super-resolution and electron microscopy), together with experiments focused on cellular and molecular biology. The project has highly qualified national and international collaborators.

More about the position

Two postdoctoral positions are available; each position will be minimum 2 years in duration, depending on starting date, with latest completion of the contract on Nov. 30. 2022. Funding will be provided from a grant from the Norwegian Research Council. IEMR employs ≈ 70 people and consists of seven main research groups with backgrounds in various fields of molecular biology, physiology and cardiology.

The project will be conducted in the group of Professor William Louch. The group is part of the KG Jebsen Center for Cardiac Research which promotes extensive collaboration and provides a fruitful research environment.

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

Qualification requirements
  • Applicants must hold a degree equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in Biology, Biomedical Laboratory Sciences or Medical/Health/Social subjects. The doctoral dissertation must be submitted for evaluation by the closing date. Appointment is dependent on the public defense of the doctoral thesis being approved.
  • Fluent oral and written communication skills in English.

The following qualifications will count in the assessment of the applicants:

We are looking for talented and highly motivated candidates of all nationalities who have a keen interest in cellular and cardiovascular research. Experience with techniques for imaging, cell biology, electrophysiology, molecular biology, viral transduction, or mathematical modeling is considered an asset. Value will be placed on compatibility of the applicant’s professional and personal disposition, with strengths in:

  • Systematic analysis and assessment
  • Implementation
  • Self-development
  • Initiative and accountability
  • Constructive cooperation
We offer
  • salary NOK 532.300 – 594.400 per annum depending on qualifications in position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow (position code 1352)

Job description

A funded 3-year PhD candidate position is available in the Computational Biology and Systems Medicine group led by Marieke Kuijjer at the Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM), Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Norway. The NCMM is a Nordic EMBL partner.

The Computational Biology and Systems Medicine group was established in 2018 and investigates how gene regulatory networks are disrupted in cancer as well as other complex diseases. We do this by building computational tools that model networks of gene regulation, which represent for example how transcription factors or microRNAs regulate genome-wide gene expression. Using high-performance computing, we can model these networks for each individual sample in large-scale `omics datasets. We then analyze these “big data” networks using statistical methods. This allows us to better understand both the system-wide level of changes, as well as specific disruptions in regulation that may drive the heterogeneity, development, progression, and response to treatment of cancer and other complex diseases. See https://www.kuijjerlab.org/ for a more detailed description of our research program. The PhD project will focus on expanding our current tool set to integrate individual patient regulatory networks with other `omics data types (such as mutation data or spatial transcriptomics) and/or on expanding our comparative network analysis framework with methods from machine learning.

The candidate

We seek a highly motivated candidate who is excited about developing new computational models and tools with applications to systems medicine. The ideal candidate is collaborative and creative, has strong programming skills and a sound training in using statistics and/or machine learning for the analysis of large-scale biological datasets. Experience with analysis of genomic data sets is a requirement for this position. Experience with genomic data integration and/or biological network analysis, and being familiar with gene regulatory processes and cancer biology, is desirable. Note that we are not looking for someone to develop computational pipelines for others to use, neither for someone to apply pipelines developed by others. We are specifically looking for an individual who is excited about developing and using computational methods to answer important questions in biology.

Qualification requirements
  • Master’s degree in computational biology, bioinformatics, biostatistics, computer science, (bio)physics, or a related field. Applicants with a background in biology or (bio)medicine with a strong programming background and experience in `omics data analysis are also encouraged to apply. Applicants who do not have a degree yet, but who are expecting to graduate this summer/fall can apply to this position.
  • Experience with analysis of large-scale genomics data is required, preferably transcriptomic and epigenomic data analysis
  • Proficient in programming and/or scripting languages, such as R, Python, MATLAB, Bash
  • Experience with high performance computing is desirable
  • Knowledge in cancer biology, gene regulation, and/or network biology is desirable
  • Professional proficiency in English
  • Willingness to work in a team environment, sharing skills and ideas, and collaborating on projects
We offer
  • The PhD candidate position will be placed as SKO 1017, with salary NOK 479 600 – 532 300 per annum, depending on qualifications.
  • A professional, 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
How to apply

The application must include

On a daily basis there are reports of ICT security breaches and failures of vital functions like water supply, electricity supply, healthcare services, communication services, transport services and security services. Companies and entire nations are now faced with the threat of large scale-attacks executed remotely through the Internet. Unfortunately, current knowledge of resilient ICT system design stands in stark contrast to the critical importance that ICT has in modern societies.

Blockchain:

Traditional economic models are based on brokers such as banks, charging mediation fees. Bitcoin did away with a broker entity and showed that it is fundamentally possible to have a working system in practice where the technology does all the mediation. In 2016, the application range exploded, with the Blockchain Paradigm being heralded as the enabler of cooperative economy. Blockchain use in healthcare provision and energy markets is making global news. 15% of top global banks aimed to roll out commercial blockchain products in 2017. Microsoft and IBM declare blockchain as a key technology for business. Netherlands and Estonia make blockchain a part of their national technological strategy.

Unfortunately, the sudden demand for blockchain solutions has caught the society unprepared. While the potential is huge, meaningful standards are to emerge and even application requirements are to be crystallized yet. It is already clear, however, that new blockchain applications have characteristics significantly diverging from those of Bitcoin, due to the key differences in the operational conditions, prevalent threats and risks, and performance requirements. This call for a design of new mechanisms for data storage, distribution, security, etc.

The main objective for this postdoc position is to contribute to analyzing the requirements and devising new mechanisms for novel classes of blockchain applications.

The results can impact healthcare provision, energy markets, and a broad range of B2B interaction which involves e-asset transfer, by filling the technology gap and powering industry initiatives in this rapidly developing area. In particular, the position will be relevant to existing projects in the group of Networks and Distributed Systems, such as SmartMed and SmartNEM.

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who is interested in designing, developing, and evaluating techniques related to the above.

It is expected that the researcher will be a part of the ConSeRNS leader team and actively contribute to the coordination of collaboration between all partners contributing to ConSeRNS, including supervision of PhD-candidates.

Wed, 27 May 2020 00:00:00 GMTThu, 16 Apr 2020 08:11:37 GMT1. juli 2020Om Universitetet i Oslo

Universitetet i Oslo er Norges eldste og høyest rangerte forsknings- og undervisningsinstitusjon med 28 000 studenter og 7 000 ansatte. Faglig bredde og internasjonalt anerkjente forskningsmiljøer gjør UiO til en viktig samfunnsaktør.

Det juridiske fakultet har Norges største forsknings- og utdanningsmiljø for rettsvitenskap, kriminologi og rettssosiologi med ca 4 300 studenter og 300 ansatte. Fakultetet er fordelt på fem grunnenheter og en fakultetsadministrasjon.

]]>
Om stillingen

Ved Det juridiske fakultet er det ledig stilling som professor (SKO 1013) i rettsvitenskap med særlig plikt til å undervise og forske i forsikringsrett inkludert sjøforsikring, samt plikt til å undervise i andre sentrale obligatoriske fag på masterstudiet i rettsvitenskap.

Stillingen er tillagt Nordisk institutt for sjørett. Instituttet er en av fem grunnenheter ved Det juridiske fakultet. Instituttet har forskningsmessige tyngdepunkter i sjørett, sjøforsikring/forsikringsrett, energi- og ressursrett, havbruksrett og europarett i tillegg til mer generelle formuerettslige og forvaltningsrettslige fag og deler av folkeretten. To viktige gjennomgående trekk er at forskningen er tett knyttet til ulike viktige næringer, som skipsfart, olje- og gass, forsikring og kraftforsyning, og preget av et utstrakt nordisk og internasjonalt samarbeid. Dette gjør også at instituttet har et omfattende seminar- og formidlingsprogram. For nærmere informasjon om instituttet og avdelingen viser vi til http://www.jus.uio.no/nifs/.

Arbeidsoppgavene i stillingen består av 47,5% forskning, 47,5% undervisning, og 5% administrasjon. Søkere må også være villige til å påta seg administrative oppgaver etter gjeldende bestemmelser.

Søkere må også dokumentere grunnutdanning tilsvarende en norsk mastergrad i rettsvitenskap, det vil si 5-årig mastergrad eller tilsvarende hvor rettsvitenskap er en omfattende del av graden (3-5 år avhengig av studieprogrammet), hvor to av årene er på masternivå.

Minst ett av arbeidene som ønskes bedømt må gi en grundig behandling av et rettsdogmatisk emne på grunnlag av norske rettskilder eller folkerettslige eller andre internasjonale rettskilder som er relevante for norske forhold.

Til stillingen ligger forskningsplikt i forsikringsrett inkludert sjøforsikring. Ved rangeringen av flere kompetente søkere søkerne vil det bli lagt særlig vekt på vitenskapelige arbeider i dette faget. Det vil også bli lagt vekt på vitenskapelige arbeider i fag som danner et rettsdogmatisk grunnlag for faget, så som avtale- og obligasjonsrett og erstatningsrett.

Søkere må fra tiltredelsen ha nødvendige faglige forutsetninger for å kunne undervise, veilede og delta i eksamenssensur innenfor rettsstudiets obligatoriske fag, på et av de skandinaviske språk (norsk, dansk, svensk), og må kunne undervise i ett eller flere av disse fagene fra tiltredelse. Søkere må videre fra tiltredelsen kunne undervise i valgfaget sjøforsikringrett på engelsk, og i valgfaget forsikringrett på et skandinavisk språk.  

Stillingen i forsikringsrett er del av en større forsikringsrettslig satsning i samarbeid mellom forsikringsnæringen og Det juridiske fakultet. Søkere må derfor framlegge et notat hvor de presenterer planer for egen forskning og fagutvikling på området for de kommende år og for mulige større forskningsprosjekter for fagområdet.

Vurderingsgrunnlag

Ved vurderingen av søkerne vil det i henhold til gjeldende regler bli tatt hensyn til vitenskapelige og pedagogiske kvalifikasjoner, og eventuell juridisk kvalifiserende virksomhet av annen art, herunder også erfaring i forskningsledelse. Også språkkunnskaper, evne til samarbeid, administrative kvalifikasjoner og personlig egnethet kan bli tillagt vekt.

Fakultetet oppmuntrer ansatte til å søke ekstern finansiering til forskningsprosjekter. Erfaring med å søke eksterne forskningsmidler vil derfor være positivt.

I rangeringen av kompetente søkere trekkes hele bredden av kvalifikasjoner inn og vurderes eksplisitt. Vitenskapelige kvalifikasjoner tillegges vekt foran øvrige faglige og andre kvalifikasjoner. Det vises ellers til kvalifikasjonskravene ovenfor.

Det vil bli benyttet intervju i tilsettingsprosessen og aktuelle kandidater kan bli invitert til å holde prøveundervisning.

The PathoSeq project concerns the implementation of modern DNA sequencing technology for the purpose of monitoring and tracking pathogens in food production processes.

The pathogens in focus are Listeria monocytogenes (Lm), which constitute the most substantial pathogenic challenge for the Norwegian meat and salmon production industries.

The project is aimed at providing both a scientific and legal basis for enabling use of whole genome sequencing (WGS) technology to control these pathogens. An important part of the project involves mapping the legal and broader regulatory framework for WGS applications in pathogene control. It is to this part of the project that the postdoctoral or research fellow position is dedicated.

Further information about the scope and remit of the PathoSeq project may be found here: https://nofima.no/en/project/pathoseq/

The appointee will:

(i) map the current state of legal regulation regarding food safety, both in Norway and at the international level;

(ii) identify and analyse legislative initiatives that (directly or indirectly) may mandate the use of WGS for food safety purposes;

(iii) examine how the Norwegian food industry has implemented and complied with food safety rules;

(iv) elucidate the issues that today’s rules leave unresolved;

(v) discuss the need for future regulatory reforms and the likely ramifications of such reforms.

Although the appointee’s research will have a legal focus, much of the research involved will be interdisciplinary, drawing on expertise in socio-economic, technological, and political processes, along with law.

Moreover, the research will focus not just on legally binding codes (“hard law”) but also a range of “soft law” initiatives (e.g., industry/branch codes of practice, technical standards, and recommendations).

It will take account of regulatory policy in jurisdictions outside Norway – particularly EU and US policy. And the research will involve qualitative interview-based surveys with key stakeholders.

The research will tackle cutting-edge regulatory issues involving a need to rethink aspects of the interaction of new technology, public safety, business interests and human rights, along with the impact on Norway of external (US and EU) regulatory pressures.

Qualification requirements

Applicants for a position as postdoctoral research fellow must have a PhD or other corresponding education equivalent to a Norwegian doctoral degree in law. Applicants must also hold a Norwegian master degree in law or its equivalent. Other education at the same level may be accepted, based on an assessment in each case, if the education is highly relevant to the subject matter and remit of the PathoSeq project.

Applicants for a position as research fellow must hold a Norwegian master degree in law or its equivalent. Other education at the same level may be accepted, based on an assessment in each case, if the education is highly relevant to the subject matter and remit of the PathoSeq project.

As the project leader will define more precisely the research agenda of the appointee, applicants do not need to submit an extensive project proposal. However, applicants are requested to submit a short proposal (maximum 5 pages) sketching how they would tackle their part of the research project as outlined above, in light of the methodological challenges they envisage the research will present.

In assessing the applications, special emphasis will be placed on the applicants’ assumed academic and personal ability to complete their part of the project within the given time frame, taking particular account of the interdisciplinary requirements of the PathoSeq project.

The working language for the project is Norwegian and many of the rules making up the national Norwegian regulatory framework are available only in Norwegian, so applicants should have an excellent command of Norwegian or another Scandinavian language. As the main results of the research will be published in English, applicants should also have an excellent command of English.

Short-listed applicants will be invited for an interview with the University of Oslo.

The contract is 2 years but can potentially be extended by up to 6 months through an international research stay with project collaborators in Australia, Belgium, or USA.

Project description:

The project is highly multidisciplinary. Venoms of lacewing larvae will be characterised using a combined transcriptomic and proteomic approach, and the evolution of their toxins studied by molecular evolution analyses. The micro-evolution of the lacewing venom system will studied by both molecular and quantitative genetic analyses of venom composition, toxicity, and venom associated traits. This will be done across several populations and further tested by artificial selection experiments in the lab.

The project is affiliated with both the Centre for Evolutionary and Ecological Synthesis, IBV, UiO, and Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics, Department of Biology, NTNU, and the postdoc will be part-take in events associated with both institutions. As recent and current Norwegian Research Council Centres of Excellence in ecology and evolution, CEES/UiO and CBD/NTNU provide exceptional intellectual environments for studying evolution of adaptive traits.  

The postdoc will primarily be involved in studying micro-evolutionary properties venom. This aspect of the project includes transcriptomic analyses of venom glands, molecular evolution of toxins, analysing toxin abundances by quantitative mass spectrometry, measuring insecticidal activity, and contributing to field-collection and breeding of lacewings.

Job description

The postdoctoral fellows will be conducting fieldwork that will yield insight into contemporary Norwegian/Nordic sociality as everyday lives are increasingly digitalized through social media and digital platforms for communication and community building. For more information, click here

Applications are invited for two 35-months positions as Postdoctoral Fellow (SKO 1352) of Social Anthropology to be based at the Department of Social Anthropology, University of Oslo. The positions will be part of the research project Private Lives: Embedding Sociality at Digital 'Kitchen-tables’ led by professor Marianne Lien, and funded by Research Council Norway.

How does digital technology embed social relations? How does it reconfigure privacy and senses of belonging? With Marianne Gullestad’s ‘Kitchen Table Society’ as a reference for Nordic sociality, and with digitalized everyday lives as our explicit focus, this project seeks to enhance and renew ethnographic methods, and revitalize Nordic ethnography as a site of theoretical innovation. Through four ethnographic case studies, Private Lives will bring new knowledge about contemporary Nordic sociality as everyday lives are increasingly digitalized through social media and digital platforms.

Successful applicants will form part of an active project group at the Department of Social Anthropology and will be involved in collaborations with the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology and the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research. About 10% of the scheduled time will be allocated to shared project tasks specified as follows:

Postdoctoral Fellow 1 will take on responsibility for dissemination through a planned exhibition at the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology. This requires collaborative skills, and an interest in dissemination through visual and digital media. Experience with exhibition work and/or visual anthropology or visual art is an advantage. Postdoctoral Fellow 2 will take on responsibility for a digital ethnography workshop and a conference, and will be involved in editing joint publications. This requires collaborative skills and an interest in editorial tasks.  Experience with organizational work, administration and editing is an advantage.

For both Postdocotoral Fellows, enthusiasm for group work is a must, along with the ability to take on responsibility and deliver in a timely manner.  Both Postdoctoral Fellows will conduct individual fieldwork and analysis within the project theme as specified in advance, based on the following three options. For all three options, a sub-project proposal must be developed (max 5 pages).

 

Option 1: Digitalised belief: Religion, belonging and the global congregation  

Norway is often described as a secular or post-Christian society, yet, beneath a seemingly secular surface, spiritual, religious belief is flourishing. Some of the more vibrant congregations, such as Pentecostals, have a global reach, and digitalization appears to have the potential to broaden and deepen religious belief. This sub-project shall explore the intersections of religious belief, digitalization and everyday life. This subproject will explore how local congregations experience the process of secularization, and to what extent (and how) digital media offer novel articulations of personhood, religious community and belief. What does the religious ‘kitchen table’ look like, and who gathers around it? Where and how are boundaries between the private and the public drawn, when deeply personal religious experiences are shared as testimonies on YouTube?

 

Option 2: Morality, masculinity and mobile lives; Digitalised social formations in rural Norway

Sociality in rural Norway contains an intrinsic double aspect of social control and social belonging. What happens to such mechanisms when digital platforms offer new possibilities for identification and fellowship? To what extent is traditional community solidarity maintained and to what extent do new social fields emerge? Fieldwork will be carried out in a rural village focusing on interrelated themes, such as for example:

Morality and social control: To what extent may small communities become even smaller as social media reinforces its transparency and lack of privacy?

Urban-rural mobility and commute: To what extent is digitalised technology facilitating a changing composition of rural communities in terms of class, political organisation and perspectives? 

Political polarization and rural activism: To what extent is polarization facilitated through digitialised social media, and how might digitalization transform local rural mobilization?

 

Option 3: An open call

Applicants are invited to design a sub-project on a topic of their choice. The project must involve digital ethnography, and address key dimensions of the project ‘Private Lives’ as specified in the full project proposal.

 

For further information, see https://www.sv.uio.no/sai/english/research/projects/private-lives/. A full project proposal will be shared with potential applicants upon request.

Job description

There is a vacant position at the Department of Sociology and Human Geography for a PhD research fellow (SKO 1017) in Sociology. The position is for a period of three years without compulsory work or four year with compulsory work (primarily teaching duties).

More about the position

The position is funded by the European Research Council and is dedicated to the newly established research project OPENFLUX. The project lies at the intersection of social science and genetics. Using both behavior and molecular genetic data, linked with register data, we will examine social change across birth cohorts, change across the life course and transmission across generations in demographic and socioeconomic outcomes. In these efforts we will draw upon statistical methods from social sciences and genetics.

At the Department of Sociology and Human Geography, the project is part of the research group in Social Inequalities and Population Dynamics. The Fellow will work closely with the principal investigator Professor Torkild Hovde Lyngstad, other members of the project staff, the project’s international collaborators, as well as other members of the SIPD group.

Requirements

A prerequisite for taking up the position is the successful completion of a Master’s degree. Candidates from disciplinary backgrounds other than Sociology must demonstrate in their application letter that their educational background prepares them for doctoral study in Sociology. Their Master’s degree must include a master thesis. Applicants must have a minimum grade B (ECTS grading scale) or equivalent. The master's thesis must have been submitted before the application deadline.

Competitive candidates have skills in advanced quantitative data analysis, and preferably experience with using Scandinavian register data for research, familiarity with social stratification, family demography or social science genetics fields.

Applicants should have research interests within the areas described above. The position requires that the person who is hired participates in the Faculty of Social Sciences' organised research education programme (PhD programme) and that the work results in a doctorate in Sociology. The person who is hired will automatically be admitted to the PhD programme.

Om stillingen

Det juridiske fakultetet ved Universitetet i Oslo leder forskningsprosjektet Medical, legal and lay understandings of physical evidence in rape cases (Evidently Rape). Prosjektet er ledet av professor May-Len Skilbrei og finansiert som et konvergensmiljø gjennom UiOs strategiske satsing UiO:Livsvitenskap. Prosjektet skal nå ansette en PhD-stipendiat i rettsvitenskap med arbeidsplass på Institutt for offentlig rett som skal utføre et delprosjekt i Evidently Rape, men også inngå i prosjektets tverrfaglig forskergruppe.  

Det juridiske fakultet i Oslo har Norges største forsknings- og undervisningsmiljø i rettsvitenskap. Fakultetets doktorgradsprogram har ca. 50 stipendiater. Stipendiatstillingen er en utdanningsstilling og skal lede fram til en PhD-grad fra Det juridiske fakultet. Det forutsettes at den som tilsettes kvalifiserer for opptak på fakultetets doktorgradsprogram. Les mer om krav for opptak til ph.d programmet her.

Tilsetting kan skje for fire år, hvilket forutsetter 75 % forskning og 25 % undervisningsplikt, eller for tre år uten undervisningsplikt. Tilsetting for fire år forutsetter at kandidaten kan fylle et udekket undervisningsbehov ved fakultetet.

Kvalifikasjonskrav

Til stillingen kreves norsk femårig mastergrad i rettsvitenskap, eller tilsvarende utdanning. Siden Evidently Rape involverer forskning på norskspråklige kilder, må stipendiaten beherske norsk eller annet skandinavisk språk.

Evidently Rape handler om hvordan medisinske bevis i voldtektssaker samles inn, behandles og tolkes av medisinsk personell, og formidles til politi og påtalemyndigheter for vurdering og bruk i retten. PhD-stipendiatens prosjekt skal undersøke etterforskning og iretteføring av voldtektssaker, spesielt hvordan politi og påtalemyndigheter forholder seg til bevis i bred forstand i tilfeller som etterforskes etter Strl §291, bokstav b. Bevissituasjonen i slike saker beskrives ofte som vanskelig, og prosjektet er ment å belyse disse utfordringene gjennom en empirisk undersøkelse av et utvalg straffesaker. Prosjektet skal kartlegge hvilke bevis som finnes (og ikke finnes) i straffesakene og hvordan disse brukes i retten. Selv om medisinske bevis er det som står sentralt i det overordnede prosjektet skal PhD-prosjektet i rettsvitenskap se på alle bevis i sakene og ikke begrenses til de medisinske bevisene. Søkeren må utvikle en prosjektbeskrivelse på 5-10 sider. Denne må vise hvordan søker vil gå fram for å gjennomføre en slik studie, hvilke teorier og metoder vedkommende vil jobbe med, og en tidsplan for arbeidet. I prosjektbeskrivelsen må det framgå hva prosjektets relevans og betydning er for Evidently Rape og norsk rettsvitenskap.

Den endelige planen for prosjektet vil utformes i samråd med veileder/e etter tilsetting.

Vurderingsgrunnlag

Ved vurdering av søkerne vil det ble lagt vesentlig vekt på prosjektets samfunnsmessige og rettsvitenskapelige kvalitet og dens relevans for Evidently Rape (link til informasjon om prosjektet her: https://www.uio.no/english/research/strategic-research-areas/life-science/research/convergence-environments/evidently_rape/). Ved vurdering av søknadene vil det, foruten de ovennevnte faglige prioriteringene, bli lagt vekt på karakterer, eventuell tidligere skriftlige produksjon og søkerens faglige og personlige forutsetninger for å gjennomføre prosjektet. Siden prosjektet skal utføres innenfor rammene av et tverrfaglig samarbeid, og skape kunnskap om forholdet mellom juridiske og medisinske metoder og kunnskap, er erfaringer med og egnethet for samarbeid viktige kvalifikasjoner.

Aktuelle kandidater vil bli innkalt til intervju.

Job description

Position as Researcher available at the Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) and Section for Aquatic biology and toxicology (AQUA).

The position is for a period of 2 years and 6 months. Starting date no later than 01.12.2020.

We seek a quantitatively skilled ecologist, ecologically interested statistical modeller or equivalent to develop statistical state-space models for marine food web dynamics and apply these models to project possible ecological effects of climate change in the Arctic.

The position is part of the research project The Nansen Legacy . The Nansen Legacy is the Norwegian Arctic research community’s joint effort to establish a holistic understanding of a changing marine Arctic climate and ecosystem. The project will provide a scientific knowledge base needed for future sustainable resource management in the Arctic. It is a collaborative project between ten Norwegian research institutions, will run from 2018 to 2023 and will collect and analyse data from the marginal ice zone of the Barents Sea and the adjacent Arctic Basin.

The researcher will contribute to task 4-4 of the Nansen Legacy project, which is to develop, evaluate and use dynamic ecosystem models to simulate key ecosystem properties of the future living Barents Sea under various climate, harvesting and ecological scenarios. The hired researcher will work on statistical multispecies (Gompertz) models, building on Bayesian state-space models developed at the Department of Biosciences. These models use time-series of selected key species and forcing variables, and quantify population regulation, species interactions and effects of climate and harvesting. A key challenge is to formulate these models so as to realistically constrain future trajectories. The model development will be done in collaboration with scientists at UiO as well as scientists at the other research institutions in the project, where different models are developed, compared and applied. The other models comprise ecosystem (NoBa Atlantis and EwE), bio-physical (Norwecom.E2E) and stochastic food web (NDND) models. Evaluation methods will include confrontation of model hindcasts with historical data using conventional likelihood approaches and cross validation techniques, comparison of observed and simulated ecological patterns following a pattern oriented modelling strategy and sensitivity analyses for the key assumptions and parameters required in each model. Furthermore, key ecosystem properties of the future living Barents Sea will be simulated. Relevant ecosystem properties to simulate include primary and ecosystem productivity, distribution, phenology, and stability of the future living Barents Sea.

The simulations will use down-scaled projections of environmental conditions from other parts of the project (including physical variables, but also possibly phytoplankton and zooplankton), and consider alternative harvesting scenarios. Outputs from the five models (i.e., including those developed at partner institutions) will be combined into multiple projections of the Barents Sea ecosystem states and trajectories.

Through the Nansen Legacy project, dedicated interdisciplinary summer schools and intensive courses are organized to strengthen national and international cooperation and integration of early career researchers. Furthermore, the project includes a mobility program to ensure national and international exchange.

The work will be done in close collaboration with Dr. Øystein Langangen (AQUA), Dr. Joël M. Durant (CEES) and Dr. Leif Chr. Stige (CEES).

The Department of Biosciences, including the two sections CEES and AQUA provides a stimulating research environment with many young international and Norwegian scientists working on a variety of theoretical and empirical topics within ecology and marine sciences, evolution, population genetics, genomics, phylogenetics, molecular biology, bio-economics and statistical methodology.

The person hired will be part of the marine ecology group at CEES, consisting of researchers and PhDs who address ecological questions around climate change and marine productivity through statistical analysis and interdisciplinary collaborations.

Information about the research group can be found at: http://www.mn.uio.no/cees/english/research/groups/marine-ecology/ . The person will also be affiliated with the AQUA-section .
