Application process spring 2018

A new year and an earlier deadline from Research Council of Norway (RCN) means it is time to plan the application process for spring. We will continue the K2 tradition with submission of application sketches and a joint meeting for applicants to the programs BEDREHELSE, BEHANDLING, HELSEVEL and FRIMEDBIO. Thursday 15 February is the proposed deadline for the sketch and we have reserved Wednesday 7 March at 13-16 (seminar room 7th floor) for the meeting. The intention with this meeting is to present the sketch and receive constructive feedback from experienced colleagues which is useful for the preparation of the final proposal. You can send your sketch to amra.grudic@uib.no.

Last years’ results from RCN showed the importance of applying in the program that fits the research project. I therefore want to draw your attention to a seminar in Bergen on 7 February where representatives from RCN will present the programs BEHANDLING, BEDREHELSE, HELSEVEL og HORIZON 2020 (Program). They will present what is expected from the various programs, so I encourage you to attend if you have the possibility to do so.

Other relevant deadlines during the coming months are GLOBVAC, Novo Nordisk, Kreftforeningen og Extrastiftelsen, to name a few. I also want to remind you about BFS Starting Grant, a program aiming to recruit and develop excellent research leaders at UiB, where the deadline to send a sketch and CV is 12 February, as presented in the newsletter last week. Research advisors also want to join the digitalization processes taking place at UiB. Relevant research deadlines will therefore be published on this page, while announcements relevant for education can be found here. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement please let me know.

Tuesday this week RCN visited Bergen to talk about possibilities for the public sector in research. There will be an increased emphasis on this subject, so if you have any contacts in the municipality I want to remind you about “Offentlig ph.d.”. The municipality and RCN fund the candidate 50-50 while we are a partner representing the educational institution. More information will be made available during March and the deadline will most likely be beginning of April.

Finally, I would like to advertise a bit for myself. I would be happy to assist you in one or all of the areas represented below. I am at your assistance until deadline 25 April at 13, but it is best to give us more time. This I will leave up to you as to what fits best.


New Publications

Here are recent publications with contributions from K2 based on last week’s search on PubMed (and optionally articles that have not been included in previous lists). This time the list includes in total 33 recent publications. The entries appear in the order they were received from NCBI. If you have publications that are not included in this or previous lists, please send the references to Johnny Laupsa-Borge.

Mobility seminar

International Centre UiB invites researchers and PhD candidates who are going on research mobility in 2018 to seminar.

The mobility seminar will cover the following topics:

  • Information regarding UiB routines
  • Forms to the Norwegian government
  • Financing possibilities
  • Insurance
  • Practicalities

This is a nice opportunity to get to know other outbound researchers and share experiences.
It will be time to ask questions.

Regarding visits to section for pathology

Section for pathology in Sentralblokken has since January 2018 permanently locked all the entrance doors to the section.

This is necessary due to accreditation. Previously, the doors in the second floor have been unlocked during normal working hours.

Those of you who need to visit or contact people in the pathology environment, should from now on make an appointment before visiting. Alternatively, you can approach the reception at the section on the second floor. There is a door bell with instructions by the entrance door.

Should you require repeated visits to the section, you can ask to be given access. Please bring your HUS employee key card.

On behalf of Anders Molven,

Head of section, pathology
