PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in digital religion and/or didactics of religion
The successful applicant will be associated with the research programme religion, culture and society. The main focus of the position is to produce research that sheds light on contemporary digital religion and/or didactics of religion. Within this broad field of research the position is open to diverse topics, such as the significance of digital religion in religious processes of change, theoretical perspectives on digital religion, communication of religious content by means of digital tools, or the use of digital tools in religious education in schools. Projects regarding other relevant challenges related to the research fields of digital religion and didactics of religion, and the interplay between them are also welcome. The study of religion(s) faculty group at the Department of Cultural Studies and Languages focuses on contemporary religion and offers good opportunities for professional reseacher development.

PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Plant Protein Biochemistry
The work is focused on the isolation of enzymes, reaction kinetics, membrane protein complexes, regulation of protein subunit translation in vivo and in vitro, and assembly of the protein subunits into an enzymatically active complex.In the project, proteins binding to ribosomes, nascent polypeptide chains, and chlorophyll are investigated during the assembly of Cytochrome b6f.
(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in development of biomaterials
Alginate is a notable example of biomaterials extensively used for biomedical applications, and to date, all available alginates used are extracted from seaweed algae. However, alginate composition in different seaweeds varies according to seasonal and growth conditions, and therefore obtaining alginates with homogeneous and reproducible structures presents a challenge. Bacteria produce an extensive range of extracellular polymers, including alginate, and thus can be used as a platform to create customizable biomaterials with predetermined structures and reproducible properties. The Ph.D. fellow will work on developing a highly innovative alternative to engineering bacteria for the recombinant production of tailor-made alginate biomaterials.
Deadline : 7th March 2023
(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Computational Fluid Dynamics and Drill String Mechanics
The goal of this project is to improve our understanding of fluid dynamics and particle transport within the annular space outside a drill string, and to strengthen our knowledge of the coupling between drill string vibrations and fluid flow. The project will study this topic using mainly computational and theoretical approaches, and will investigate the roles of fluid rheology, flow regime and borehole inclination on the transport of particles and the drill string motion. The industrial motivation for the study is to develop more efficient diagnostics of drill string vibrations, and to enable control of particularly lateral motion of the string through a new, patented downhole tool.
Deadline : 9th March 2023
(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Cyberbullying
Cyberbullying is a significant social, health and behavioural concern throughout the EU and worldwide, yet crucial areas in its prevention and intervention have largely been side-lined, namely the key role of parents, as well as the role of gender, disability, ethnicity and sexuality.

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowships in Healthcare Teamwork
The Tools4Teams consortium combines in-depth learning within acute and chronic health care settings, to generate fundamental knowledge on cognitive, affective, and behavioural team interaction processes and how these processes can be supported by innovative tools for teams. Through translation of this fundamental knowledge across settings, Tools4Teams aims to respond to the challenges related to increased complexity of modern health care. Central themes are innovative support tools for teams (i.e. physiological sensors, information integration platforms, and AR/VR technology) and team competences (i.e. reflection, conflict management and multi team functioning) to continuously learn about how, when, where and by whom application of these tools is valuable, acceptable, and ethical. The main goal of Tools4Teams is to train 12 highly skilled doctoral candidates in six European countries with in-depth knowledge and cross disciplinary expertise in methods for research on teamwork and health services, design and system thinking, and ethics, complemented with transferable and networking skills, an entrepreneurial mind-set and experience of industrial application.
Deadline :15th March 2023
(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in Nanomedicine
The candidate will work on a project focused on nanobiotechnology using the zebrafish embryo to follow the fate of intravenously injected nanocarriers in disease areas such as tumors and tuberculosis granulomas. Being transparent, the zebrafish embryo is an excellent in vivo system to follow nanoparticles after injection. We are particularly interested in understanding the processes that lead nanocarriers to cross biological barriers.The hired person will be linked to other research projects ongoing in the group and be part of a larger consortium of collaborators within and outside of Norway.
Deadline : 26th March 2023
(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded
PhD position summary/title: PhD Fellowship in responsible leadership in the green transition
The selected candidate will conduct research on responsible leadership in the green transition. The environmental challenges associated with the climate and nature crisis generate a need for reconsidering what responsible leadership is – especially in organisations whose core activities need to be phased out if climate targets are to be met. The situation is made even more complex due to the fact that some of the means capable of reducing greenhouse gas emissions are themselves generative of other environmental challenges – e.g. wind and hydro power, battery production, hydrogen plants, etc. Moreover, the climate crisis and the green transition create new issues of social and spatial justice. These are closely associated with broader patterns of inequality and exclusion that cut across class, gender, and ethnicity (i.e., intersectionality) while also traversing the dimensions of justice: distribution, recognition, and representation.
Deadline :31st March 2023
