Det er uvanlig at to Nobelprisene går til forskere og tema, hvor en og samme professor på IBV er ekspert. Slik er det nemlig i år; professor Inger Sandlie arbeider innen begge områdene for disse to prisene.
At a meeting for all CEES members, Professor Kjetill S. Jakobsen was introduced as the new Chair of CEES by the Head of the Department of Biosciences, Rein Aasland.
The UiO Hive team helt 18 of September a kick off meeting (Workshop) for the UiO eInfrastructure hub Hive at Åpen Sonen, IFI. The goal for UiO Hive is to establish a hub around which participants can collaborate on this interdisciplinary project, where students can find fruitful projects topics and support to realize projects bridging across disciplines.
UiO:Life Science hopes to see Norwegian finalists in the pitch competition at the tech conference SLUSH in Helsinki on 5 December. The winner is granted 30 000 euros. Life science students and researchers in startups or pre-startups are welcome to apply before 1 October at 12:00.
A major challenge in computational neuroscience is to specify the often large number of parameters that define neuron and neural network models. Many of these parameters have an inherent variability, and some are even actively regulated and change with time.
"ITA offers an ideal environment to learn and a unique opportunity to collaborate with members of the solar group whose research topics are akin to mine."
Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics/CEED will award the Else-Ragnhild Neumann Award for Women in Geosciences. The award goes to a woman who through PhD or postdoctoral work has made a significant contribution to research in Geosciences.
The Department of Geosciences has several externally financed projects, in 2017 external research support contributed 50% of the department's economy. On Monday the 27th of August there was a start-up meeting for one of the newest projects - Volcanic Eruptions and their Impacts on Climate, Environment, and Viking Society in 500-1250 CE (VIKINGS). The project is supported by FRIPRO/Toppforsk/FRINATEK.
Are you a scientist working on health-related topics in the life science domain? Do you have an idea for a new solution or technology with innovation potential, but need help to take the next steps? Why not let the new two-year SPARK Norway programme at UiO help you!
The PhD course "Arctic tectonics, volcanism and climate" was held early August in the high north. The intensive week-long course held in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, brought together 15 students and 11 lecturers from 9 universities around the world. The course was funded through the DEEP Research School and the NOR-R-AM project, and UNIS.
At present UiO:Life Science funds seven convergence environments that address major challenges within life sciences related to health and environment/sustainable growth. A new application round starts now. Researchers from all units at UiO are welcome to participate.
A recent article by RoCS' doctoral research fellow, Souvik Bose and K. Nagaraju of the Indian Institute of Astrophysics, is featured as a research highlight in the American Astonomical Society Nova.
Here are the three papers
A freshly graduated PhD in geomatics from the University of Oslo, Bas Altena, have been granted a postdoc grant from the European Space Agency's (ESA) Living Planet Fellowship program. With this fellowship he will explore new ways to exploit satellite data from the Copernicus program in combination with other satellites to help understand fast changes in the cryosphere.
2018 marks the tenth anniversary of the Kavli Prize, which recognizes scientists for major advances in three research areas: astrophysics, nanoscience, and neuroscience—the big, the small, and the complex.
Nils Chr. Stenseth will become a strategic adviser at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences after leaving as head of the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at the Department of Biosciences.
Stephanie Werner at CEED and Department of Geosciences is now employed in a permanent position as a Professor at the Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway.
“Norway itself is welcoming - since my arrival the weather was ideal.“
The image shows the heating in the upper solar atmosphere called the corona. Here the temperature is more than 1 Million Kelvin, much hotter than the solar surface.
“I’m hoping to embrace the Norwegian culture as much as possible and make the most out of the beautiful Scandinavian nature“, Petra Kohutova
The Chinese company Jinko Solar is currently the world’s largest producer of solar panels, and it manufactures the solar cells with the highest efficiency. Jinko Solar is also a key partner in the INTPART-project SiNorAPV: Sino-Norwegian Alliance in Photovoltaics, coordinated by Prof. Andrej Kuznetsov at the Centre for Materials Science and Nanotechnology (SMN), UiO. SiNorAPV is now looking for MSc- and PhD-students from UiO, NTNU, NMBU and UiA, who would like to spend a two-week internship this summer at the Jinko Solar factory near Shanghai. Five internships are available in 2018, the call can be found here.
Do you want to join the application process in 2018/2019 for funding of new interdisciplinary research groups in life sciences? Then you should sign up for one of UiO:Life Science´s meetings in the end of May.
The second annual prize will be awarded on June 12th 2018.
