Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title:  Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Neuroscience

Applications are invited for a 3-year position as Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Neuroscience in the Laboratory of Neural Development and Optical Recording (NDEVOR) headed by Professor Joel C. Glover at the Section of Physiology, Department of Molecular Medicine, University of Oslo. The overall aim of the project is to characterize neuron populations in the brain stem that project to the spinal cord through single cell and spatial transcriptomics, and to use resulting molecular signatures to develop viral tools for the selective functional manipulation of these neurons. The project will contribute to a deeper understanding of how brainstem circuits control somatic and autonomic functions in the spinal cord. Research conducted by the postdoctoral fellow will target specific deliverables within the project and will be integrated into efforts by a larger research team, including national and international collaborators.

(09) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Early Earth Evolution

Environmental conditions for habitability are also linked to the tectonic regime (e.g., stagnant lid vs. squishy lid vs. plate tectonics vs. other modes) and the interlinked rock and volatile cycles of the life-forming elements (CHNOPS). Plate tectonics regulates interior temperatures and atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, and therefore also surface temperatures, but estimates for when plate tectonics started range from the Hadean (>4 Ga) to 700 Ma. Plate tectonics is probably vital for sustaining planetary habitability and an important PHAB topic is therefore to establish when early plate tectonics (warm shallow subduction) and modern plate tectonics (cold steep and deep subduction) might have emerged.

(10) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in geology

The Oslo Rift contains thick deposits of sedimentary rocks, abundant igneous intrusions (sills, dykes, plutons), and a rich variety of extrusive rocks such as ignimbrites and lava flows. The sequence of lava flows is hundreds of meters thick in the wider Oslo region and represent a poorly studied unit. Moreover, the lava pile is cut by numerous faults, fractures, and deeply weathered zones, making construction work such as tunnels and roads challenging. This project aims at understanding interplay between the extrusive/intrusive history and the present-day consequences for sustainable development. We will combine fieldwork on natural exposures with drill cores and road sections. The postdoc will get experience with fieldwork, mapping, fracture monitoring, core studies, and analytical work.

(19) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Researcher in Ethnobotany – Focus on Quantitative Analyses of Historical Plant Use in Scandinavia

Nordic People and Plants investigates the development of Nordic biodiversity through human interference from the Viking age until today. The project aims to rediscover and understand the evolution of Nordic plant traditions, by explaining the origins of diversity of selected plants. People have always been dependent on plants, using them as food, animal fodder, medicine, or as materials for clothing, tools and buildings. Throughout history, plants have shaped how people build, dress, and cure diseases. In turn, people have influenced biodiversity by cultivating and introducing new plant species, but they have also caused plants to go extinct. Currently, a decline in plant diversity world-wide threatens our well-being and the ecosystems we depend on, making it all the more pressing to better understand these human-plant relationships. In this project, plant names, archaeobotanical sources, iconographical sources and textual descriptions will all be systematized and analyzed. The project is based on close collaboration between the humanities and natural sciences. This cooperation will contribute to a comprehensive understanding of human relationships with plants and contribute to safeguarding Nordic plant traditions for the future.

MINiTEXTS seeks to systematically study early medieval Latin minuscule texts (also known as “guest texts” or “microtexts”), i.e. short texts which were added in large numbers, before c. 1000, to flyleaves, margins and other blank spaces of pre-900 Latin manuscripts. MINiTEXTS examines such textual additions as a unique corpus of practical knowledge deeply embedded in the social praxis of early medieval society and aspires to understand the “social logic” of such texts as well as the social, religious, and cultural practices that they signify.

About The University of Oslo, Norway – Official Website

The University of Oslo, until 1939 named the Royal Frederick University is the oldest university in Norway, located in the Norwegian capital of Oslo. Until 1 January 2016 it was the largest Norwegian institution of higher education in terms of size, now surpassed only by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The Academic Ranking of World Universities has ranked it the 58th best university in the world and the third best in the Nordic countries. In 2015, the Times Higher Education World University Rankings ranked it the 135th best university in the world and the seventh best in the Nordics. While in its 2016, Top 200 Rankings of European universities, the Times Higher Education listed the University of Oslo at 63rd, making it the highest ranked Norwegian university.

The university has approximately 27,700 students and employs around 6,000 people. Its faculties include (Lutheran) theology (with the Lutheran Church of Norway having been Norway’s state church since 1536), law, medicine, humanities, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, dentistry, and education. The university’s original neoclassical campus is located in the centre of Oslo; it is currently occupied by the Faculty of Law. Most of the university’s other faculties are located at the newer Blindern campus in the suburban West End. The Faculty of Medicine is split between several university hospitals in the Oslo area. The university also includes some formally independent, affiliated institutes such as the Centre for International Climate and Environmental Research (CICERO), NKVTS and the Frisch Centre.

The university was founded in 1811 and was modeled after the University of Copenhagen and the recently established University of Berlin. It was originally named for King Frederick VI of Denmark and Norway, and received its current name in 1939. The university is informally also known as Universitetet (“the university”), having been the only university in Norway, until 1946 and was commonly termed “The Royal Frederick’s” (Det Kgl. Frederiks), before the name change.

The Nobel Peace Prize was awarded in the university’s Atrium, from 1947 to 1989 and will be so again in 2020, making it the only university in the world to be involved in awarding a Nobel Prize. Since 2003, the Abel Prize is awarded in the Atrium. Five researchers affiliated with the university have been Nobel laureates.
