Have you ever felt like you don't belong? That you are "faking it 'til you make it"? Or sometimes even feel like you will never “make it”?
Recently, UiO started using Zoom for both digital teaching and video meetings, and the use of Zoom at UiO has seen tremendous growth in the past weeks. But with the use of new tools new questions arise. Here, UiO's head of IT security Espen Grøndahl answers the most important questions.
Currently, only one team is standing for the Dean election. The Election Board has therefore decided to extended the nomination deadline to April 2.
The sitting Vice-Dean of Research Solveig Kristensen stands for dean election with Njord-leader Bjørn Jamtveit.
Jeg er astrofysiker, og tar en doktorgrad i kosmologi. Bare denne ene setningen i seg selv vekker mange spennende og rare reaksjoner hos noen mennesker. Her er fem av dem.
Are you a researcher or a clinician, and in need of publications on Covid-19? Medical library has made a collection of resources regarding the corona virus.
Deep intracontinental earthquakes are poorly understood, despite their potential to cause significant destruction. In a recently published article in Nature Communications, a study done in Lofoten by an international project led by Njord's Luca Menegon, has shed new light on the mechanisms through which earthquakes are triggered up to 40km beneath the earth’s surface. With the insight from this study, researchers hope to be able to help at-risk communities in the future from the danger these earthquakes poses.
When I think back on all the good parts of being a child, few things beat the sensation of sitting on my parents' shoulders. The empowering moment when they lifted me above their heads for me to loom over everyone else. Reaching for my neighbors' apples and being small enough that it was considered charming instead of theft. Those were the days.
The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs is encouraging all Norwegian citizens traveling abroad to consider traveling home as soon as possible, in a safe and calm manner, in consultation with their travel agency or airline.
Astrofysisk institutt har et veldig internasjonalt miljø, og har mange samarbeid på tvers av landegrenser. En av fordelene med dette, er at det er store sjanser for å få dra ut på spennende reiser i løpet av mastergraden sin. Selv er jeg masterstudent med på COMAP eksperimentet, som samarbeider med folk fra blant annet USA, England og Canada. Og i februar var jeg så heldig at jeg fikk være med på tur til California!
The journal packages from PsycARTICLES and the ProQuest Health Research Premium Collection are no longer available after March 1, 2020. At UiO and OUS, we have had access to these journal packages through "Helsebiblioteket". Update as of March 23: The library has now set up the Get It Now service to access articles.
Like every year since 2006, CEES organised Darwin Day at Charles Darwin's birthday February 12th.
"I expect to learn a lot every day, and I hope that my work will contribute to the quest for dark matter."
"From early age I've always loved the stars, and Astrophysics has always been my favourite part of physics."
"The ability to do world class research and collaborate with other European researchers while at the same time experiencing a new culture is what really drew me to Oslo."
"Line Intensity Mapping studies show great promise in their power to probe cosmology and global astrophysical quantities", Marta B. Silva
Before settling down in Oslo, Maksym has studied at five different universities in Europe. His love for astrophysics brought him to Oslo.
As a budding astrophysicist with a self-admitted tendency towards introspection, I often find myself reflecting on the steps I’ve taken to get to this spot in my career, the challenges I’ve faced, and how reality differs so spectacularly from expectation.
In short, and to put it colloquially, life is nonlinear AF.
Thanks to all who attended the 5-year anniversary of the Oslo Life Science Conference! Several of the events were filmed, so if you missed any of them, or want to see them again, you may watch them now.
Space is quite the distance away for us humans on Earth. So naturally, when you tell someone you study astrophysics, they go “that must be awfully theoretical?”. In some cases yes, but it does not have to be.
I’m an Astrophysicist. I’m also a big arthouse cinema enthusiast. This leaves me with the obvious topic to write about: botched science in blockbuster movies.
Let’s begin, shall we?
Six new teams have been admitted to UiO´s innovation programme SPARK Norway. They will develop their ideas within health-related life sciences for the benefit of patients and society.
The 34. Nordic Geological Winter Meeting (NGWM20) was held 8-10. January 2020 at University of Oslo. For the first time this big meeting had a session dedicated for "Geoeducation" on the programme. With over 50 participants the session was well visited. Here are some photos.
Earth’s relief is in continuous change; mountains are eroded by wind and water, the valleys, seas and oceans are filling up with the scoured sediments, and the continents get thinner or thicker during these processes. But this is not all! Deep down, sometimes hundred of kilometres from the surface, much slower forces at work carving the continents upside down. New work published in Nature Communications reveals just that for Africa!
