During the assembly, the dean will present the recommendations from the report, as well as information on how the faculty will proceed with the recommendations. There will also be time for questions and comments.
Are you interested in mathematical or computational modeling of biological systems, using digital tools to analyze biological data, or in making your research more transdisciplinary?
We are happy to announce that prof. Eivind Hovig (University of Oslo & Oslo University Hospital) will give a talk this time. He will talk about their experiences from the sequencing work in the Norwegian Cancer Genomics Consortium, collaboration with deCODE on analysing the genetic landscape of Norwegians and about the variant frequency data base.
Time: May 30
Place: Lab-building at the Haukeland University Hospital, 6th floor, meeting room at Medical Genetics & Molecular Medicine.
“Digital Frukost” is an open breakfast seminar series focusing on research activities at the interface between the biological sciences and that of mathematics, computer science, physics or engineering. Examples of such research activities could be mathematical or computational modeling of biological systems, application of engineering/control systems theory on biological systems or inspired by biological systems, application of mathematics/statistics/machine learning to analyze big data in health or marine sector; from sensor systems, imaging or omics technologies etc. The seminars are arranged by the Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN: www.digitallifenorway.org).
We hope to see many of you there!
As food will be served, please register your attendence using this link.

UiB-rektor Dag Rune Olsen og UiO professor Dag O Hessen, forfatter av boken «Sannhet til salgs – et forsvar for den frie forskningen», møtes til debatt.
Science advice og science diplomacy er mye omtalt i akademia for tiden, og vektlegges i økende grad av institusjonenes ledere. Er fremtiden for Universitetene, i tider med mindre tiltro til kunnskap, i ferd med å bli premissleverandører for politikken? Kan universitetene bli politikkens redning og politikken bli universitetenes redning?
Sted: Litteraturhuset, Rom: Olav H. Hauge.
Tid: Torsdag 7. juni kl. 19:00.
Åpent arrangement/gratis adgang. Se også uib.no
Møtet er det første i en ny serie møter arrangert av Academia Europaea Bergen Knowledge Hub som setter lys på forholdet mellom akademia og samfunnet. Academia Europaea er det felleseuropeiske vitenskapsakademiet, og Bergen Hub skal være en platform for Akademiets aktiviteter i Norden med fokus på Norden, Nordområdene, marine og maritime forhold.

This autumn, the Faculty of Medicine will launch a new training program designed specifically for postdocs working at The Medical Faculty, UiB and Haukeland University Hospital.
This program is open to postdocs at all career stages who are interested in developing their academic career. The program will run from September 2018 to June 2019 and comprises a portfolio of tailored workshops and development opportunities covering topics including: Academic research in national and EU contexts; How to supervise students; How to make a successful funding application and How to develop a competitive academic CV. A full program of activities will be available during May 2018, a preliminary program is available on the webpage now. The course consists of 6 gatherings including a two-day seminar at Bjørnefjorden in November.
Participating in the MED Postdoc Program will provide you with skills and knowledge to develop a successful academic career as well as the opportunity to connect with other scientists from institutes and departments across the Faculty of Medicine.
The deadline for applications is June 4. All applicants commit to attending all activities throughout the period. It is therefore a condition of application that your contract extends to June 2019. The maximum number of participants is 30.
Participant certificates will be issued after completion of the program.

Berlin School of Integrative Oncology (BSIO) – Applications for PhD and MD positions currently accepted until June 19, 2018
The BSIO offers a structured 3-year doctoral program jointly educating natural scientists and physicians/medical students in the field of integrative oncology and features excellent research conditions, a comprehensive curriculum and a broad supervision and mentoring network. With respect to its scientific scope, the BSIO aims to bring our understanding of malignant growth to new conceptual levels, i.e. to expand the molecular, cell biological, organismic and system-mathematical research focus by utilizing advanced experimental and simulatory models to develop novel diagnostics and innovative therapeutic principles, and to make them rapidly available for clinical testing.
Please refer to https://www.bsio-cancerschool.de/ for all regulations and application details and for more information on the graduate school.
How to apply: Application only is possible via the BSIO online application portal. It is open until June 19.
COST is a European network organization with most European countries as members (including Norway and all EU countries). COST aims to support European research collaboration via facilitating scientific networks, so-called COST actions. More information about COST can be found on their webpage http://www.cost.eu/.
New COST networks have been launched and in this table you can find those relevant for medical and health research. If you need further information or are interesting in joining one of the networks, please contact Amra.
Teamet som rengjør i garderobene i 1 etg. melder om at ansatte kaster smitte-frakker i retur sekkene for håndklær (blanke sekker) som skal i retur til vaskeriet. Dette er feil.
Smitte frakker skal i vannoppløselig sekk og deretter i tøy-sekk.
De skal merkes med navn på lab og dato for deretter å settes på avfallsrommet eller tøylageret i 1. etg. Vannoppløselige sekker finnes på alle avfallsrom i LB.
