The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences’ innovation initiative supports projects of research excellence with a strong innovation potential. The projects are clustered to create an inspiring and supportive research environment.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences finances a cluster of 1 postdoctoral and 3 PhD research fellowships – each of 4 years – within studies and development of thermoelectric materials for industrial applications.
These four research and innovation positions are associated with the Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN) – a national centre for biotechnology research and innovation. Through a transdisciplinary approach, the centre’s researchers combine experimental and computational methods. DLN is a virtual centre, managed by a joint leadership network from NTNU, University of Bergen and University of Oslo.
The University of Oslo is building up a research community in Data Science. To this end, we are looking to hire four brilliant PhD students to be part of this new initiative, producing top research at the crossroad between statistics, machine learning, logic and computer science, with a specific focus on innovative uses of big data.
Position as PhD Research fellow in semiconductor physics is available at The Department of Physics. Notably, the activity will be performed in close collaboration with an industrial partner, Conpart, working with transparent conductive oxides for novel display technologies.
