New Head of Department
From 1st of September Stein Kaartvedt will be the new Head of Department.
1st of September Stein Kaartvedt, current Section leader of Aqua, will become the Head of Department until Rein Aasland takes over 1.1. 2017. When Rein Aasland takes over he will be the Head of Department for the following four years.
Stein Kaartvedt has been Head of Department at Department of Biology, and he will be a known leader for many of you. He has also been Vice-Head of Department while Finn-Eirik Johansen was Head of Department.
Finn-Eirik Johansens words of departure:
I want to thank everyone for a great period as head of department at IBV. As of tomorrow Stein Kaartvedt will be head of department until the end of 2016. From 01/01/2017 Rein Aasland (now at UiB) will be head of IBV for the next four years.
For me it has been a pleasure to be the head of such a strong department as IBV and the time has flown by very quickly. Although I will be employed 100% as head of the UiO:Life Science from tomorrow, I will still have about 20% time for scientific activity at IBV. This will be assigned to section FYSCELL. I therefore hope still to see many of you around, not the least during Monday coffee in Bikuben and I hope to have more time to attend scientific seminars.
