This week the institute arranged lunch for the Emeritus Society. The society consists of professors emeriti from K2. The emeriti make a very important contribution to the department in several fields, and are well worth a lunch.They manage most defenses at K2 as custos and are part of several committees that consider applicants for vacancies and applications for endowments. Several of them are still teaching, and last but not least, several of them still publish with K2 affiliation. All of this is free of charge for the Department!
The only thing they get in return is free access to university computer services, library services and E-mail lists. In addition they receive K2Nytt. The Emeritus Society is open to anyone who goes into retirement from a scientific position at K2. Membership is renewed annually.
We have good reason to thank the emeriti for the effort they make for K2!
We present Lalit Rane, Postdoctoral fellow at Bjørn Tore Gjertsens group, Center for Cancer Biomarkers.
Lalit started with his work in December 2015 under supervision of Bjørn Tore Gjertsen. If anyone wants to say hello, you can find him on third floor in the lab building.

The K2 administration will be out of office Wednesday 16 December. The expedition will also be unattended this day.
UiB will arrange pedagogical training for group leaders on January 6-8. The course will give you the chance to discuss and plan your own teaching, hence it is an advantage that several group leaders from the same course participate at the same time. That way they can talk with each other about preparations for the course. For more information (in Norwegian) click here.
From 1 December, the new learning platform “Mitt UiB” is available to users.
Login from http://mitt.uib.no.
All employees will be offered training in December, according to information provided earlier in dialogue with the faculty administration.
You can find further information and course calendar on the DigUiB websites.
