Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Experimental Fluid Mechanics: Water capture from fog nets
Access to fresh water is the foundation for life on Earth that poses severe restrictions and requirements for life in regions that contended with water scarcity, a problem that will increase in the future with the growing effects of climate change. Water scarcity is not longer a distant problem. In 2022 Europe has been hit by a severe drought impacting agriculture and energy production. A fog net is a low cost, efficient and simple technology for harvesting water from the atmosphere. The goal of this project is to develop a new understanding of the fundamental fluid mechanics on and through fog nets to devise new designs to optimize their water yield. The planned work is experimental, to be performed in our brand new lab facilities, and is also expected to involve theoretical models of the complex flow. Field work is planned together with a non-profit organization in Morocco to give ways to test the concepts developed in the projects and there will be opportunities to work with international collaborators.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Fellow related to project ProAct
Applicants are invited for a two year position as Postdoctoral Fellow linked to the research project “Professional Actors’ Work to Retain Students in Secondary Education (ProAct) ” at the Departement of Teacher Educational and School Research, funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

How to increase Brain Power – Secrets of Brain Unlocked
(20) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral fellow in Computational Biology and Systems Medicine
A 2-year postdoctoral position with flexible starting date is available in the Computational Biology and Systems Medicine group led by Marieke Kuijjer at the Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM), Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Nordic EMBL partner (see https://www.kuijjerlab.org/ for more information). 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.

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.
