As you know, our former Head of Administration Julie Stavnes has left. Following the announcement of the position, Maria Holmaas has now been hired as the new Head of Administration. Most of you probably know Mia. She holds a Master’s Degree in Management from BI and has long and broad work experience from the business world in finance, management, personnel administration and HR. Mia has been employed at K2 since 2016 and has worked with project administration and financial management. We are lucky to get such a competent person to the management team at K2. Welcome, Mia!
Three applications from the Faculty of Medicine proceeded to phase 2 of SFF-V. These are
The Center for Translational Epidemiology, IGS and others, is headed by Tone Bjørge
Bergen Center for Ethics and Priority Setting in Health, IGS and others, led by Ole Frithjof Norheim
Center for Diabetes Mechanisms, K2 and others, led by Pål R. Njølstad
The Dean wants full focus on these SFF applications with the effect that I am given temporary leave from my position as head of department until 150921. Silke Appeal immediately moves up as Acting Head of Department and Emmet McCormack as Head of Research. All inquiries, emails, telephones etc. must thus go to these and me during this time.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Silke and Emmet for your willingness to take on these positions. I am sure you will manage your duties in an excellent way and wish you the best of luck!
Have a great weekend!
