(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow on identifying toxin function using mass spectrometry-based proteomics
The Undheim group is interested in questions in evolutionary biology that relate to how evolutionary innovations and novelties emerge and how they interact across levels of biological complexity. Animal venoms are excellent models for this purpose: They are cocktails of bioactive polypeptides (“toxins”) that often potently and selectively target important physiological processes in their victims, and that have evolved through the modification of existing “housekeeping” proteins and peptides.
Knowledge about activity and function is central to understanding the evolution of venoms and toxins. Yet, ecologically relevant targets remain unknown for the vast majority of toxins, particularly in the case of less well-studied lineages, such as most venomous insects, which venoms consist almost exclusively of novel, functionally uncharacterised peptides and proteins. This lack of knowledge is arguably one of the biggest hurdles both understanding the forces that drive and constrain the evolution of venoms and realising their potential in biomedical applications

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellowship to study DNA repair and treatment-induced tumor evolution
A funded 2 year postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Microbiology, Division of Laboratory Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Oslo.
A postdoctoral position is available to study DNA repair and treatment-induced tumor evolution in mammalian cells and tissues in Hilde Loge Nilsen research group at the Department of Microbiology.
The group works with DNA repair, specifically with the repair of uracil, resulting from cytosine deamination, initiated by uracil-DNA glycosylase. We are particularly interested in the interaction between uracil repair and APOBEC cytosine deaminases. APOBEC enzymes accelerate tumor evolution by generating uracil in DNA and footprints of APOBEC activity can be seen in cancer cells as specific mutational signatures. We have recently shown that APOBEC activity can drive tumor development in mice.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellowship in Innovation and Sustainability Transitions
Deadline : 8th December 2023
(13) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow in Computational Biology and Systems Medicine
The group was established in 2018 and focuses on using computational approaches to understand the molecular mechanisms that drive cancer development, progression, and heterogeneity. The group’s driving hypothesis is that the complex clinical phenotypes we observe in cancer cannot be adequately defined by individual layers of molecular data. Instead, we must consider the underlying network of interactions between the different biological components that can drive cancer phenotypes. To do so, the group develops computational approaches that place genomic data into the context of large-scale, genome-wide regulatory networks, as well as approaches to analyze such networks for individual cancer patients.
Amongst others, our current projects aim at developing new computational methods and tools for (1) modeling enhancer-promoter interactions, (2) integration of multi-modal single cell data using deep learning, (3) fine-tuned analysis of genome-wide regulatory networks, (4) integration of patient-specific regulatory networks with multi-omic data, (5) modeling networks based on single cell and spatial transcriptomic data.

(15) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow at Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) (2 years)
Center for Research on Extremism (C-REX) at the Department of Political Science is recruiting a Postdoctoral Fellow (SKO 1352) with specialisation in extremism and related topics (e.g., Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and Racism) in Norway. The successful applicant will be part of C-REX, funded by the Research Council of Norway. The appointment is for a fixed period of 2 years, with no teaching requirement.
C-REX studies political extremism as both an ideology and as ideologically justified violence. This provides a more holistic understanding of the causes and consequences of, as well as responses to, political extremism. The center unites perspectives from political science, sociology, history, anthropology, criminology, psychology, gender studies and media studies, providing theoretical and methodological pluralism. This cross-disciplinary approach allows us to study the formation of extreme attitudes and behaviour as well as the ideological and organizational development of political extremism at the transnational, national and local levels.
A key task for the center is to generate research-based knowledge about political extremism and related topics, such as Islamophobia, Anti-Semitism, and racism, in contemporary Norway. This postdoctoral position is expected to contribute to this task by focusing on hitherto underexplored aspects of extreme actors and extreme ideas in Norway. These aspects should be related to one or more of the centre’s five key themes: ideology and identity, violence and hate crime, movements and parties, the role of gender and/or prevention and intervention. A more thorough description of these themes can be found on our website. Projects might be comparative in terms of ideologies (i.e., comparing various forms of political extremism) or geography (i.e., comparing dimensions of political extremism in Norway with similar dimensions elsewhere). However, the analysis of political extremism in Norway should constitute a significant part of the project.
