(Norsk) Håkon Solheim

Jeg jobber i Administrasjonen på K2 , 8. etg. Lab bygget
Her jobber jeg med prosjektøkonomi for gruppe G1, G5, G20, G21 og CCBIO

Det jeg liker best ved jobben min er unit4 -prosjektmodulen.
Jeg liker også den brede variasjonen i arbeidsoppgaver.

Arbeidsoppgavene varierer en del. I starten av året er det gjerne mye bistand til prosjektledere som skal søke om midler til NFR, samt rapportering til eksterne finansiører på prosjekter som er ferdig. Det er også andre søknadsfrister/rapporteringsfrister gjennom året vi jobbet opp mot. Ellers er det løpende drift på prosjekter, blant annet innkjøp, fakturabehandling og holde orden i økonomien på prosjektene.

Det er et veldig trivelig arbeidsmiljø på K2, med gode kollegaer!

Jobber med Studie, Klinisk institutt 2

Jeg jobber som semesterkoordinator for MED9 (niende semester på medisinstudiet) og er administrativ ansvarlig for noen masteremner ved instituttet.

Det som jeg liker best ved jobben min, er at det er så mange ulike og varierte arbeidsoppgaver, og at jeg har ansvaret for alle prosesser i et emne fra start til slutt! Det er givende å se at arbeidet man legger inn i planleggingsfasen fungerer i praksis, og å kunne legge til rette for at både studentene og de vitenskapelige har det de trenger for å kunne utføre arbeidet sitt.

Mesteparten av tiden på jobben går med til å holde kontroll på at alt går som det skal med undervisning, praksis og eksamen.

Jeg liker å jobbe på K2 fordi jeg har så mange gode og kjekke kollegaer her! Og ikke minst er det givende å være med på å legge til rette for at vi kan utdanne de beste legene i landet.

I work as a coordinator for the joint study administration at K1 and K2. In practice, this means that I am the supervisor of the fine team that administers the medicine, nutrition and pharmacy studies at the department. 

What I like best about the job are my colleagues and the good working environment. We are a nice bunch who are passionate about making everyday as good as possible for both students and employees at UiB. Right now, we are working on putting in place the timetables for the autumn of 2022. 

Another thing I like is that I contribute to something bigger than myself. Being so lucky to be part of the education of tomorrow’s doctors, pharmacists and nutritionists is very inspiring. It is very exciting to collaborate with professionally skilled doctors, teachers, researchers and committed students.

Hva jobber jeg med?

Jeg er utdannet siviløkonom og har fra tidligere jobbet med renovasjon i Bodø. Høsten 2021 ble min samboer ferdig som LIS1 ved nordlandssykehuset og videre bestemte vi oss for å flytte tilbake til Bergen. Jeg fikk muligheten til å jobbe som Prosjektøkonom ved K2, noe som var en god mulighet med stort utviklingspotensial. Åttende november var min første arbeidsdag og jeg har innen denne korte perioden fått et godt inntrykk av K2 som arbeidsplass og ikke minst mine nærmeste kollegaer.

Som Prosjektøkonom er jeg et støtteapparat for forskerne og mine arbeidsoppgaver er hovedsakelig knyttet til økonomistyring av de ulike prosjektene. For øyeblikket går mye av tiden til årets NFR søknader.

Hvorfor liker du å jobbe på K2?      

Først og fremst skyldes det et godt arbeidsmiljø der alle har tatt meg godt imot og bidrar til gruppedynamikken. Jeg har fått et bilde av at på K2 prioriteres arbeidsmiljøet og vi er flinke til å samles og bli kjent på et mer personlig nivå. I tillegg til dette er det givende å kunne støtte forskerne som har en så samfunnskritisk rolle.

 

Editorial

Dear all of you!

And once again I have every reason to be proud of K2 employees: after all the celebrations last week, Eva Gerdts was last night also awarded the Helse Vest Research award 2021! Congratulations on another well-deserved award!

But she is not the only one from K2 who can be congratulated: At the annual conference of the Scandinavian Society for Immunology (SSI) last week in Aarhus, Kate Frøland from Broegelmann Research Laboratory was appointed as an honorary member. For decades, she has been indispensable to the editorial board of the journal “Scandinavian Journal of Immunology”, which is the journal affiliated with SSI. Congratulations!

Otherwise, I would like to thank all of you who have helped and supported me as acting head of department in recent months. It has been very nice to be the leader of so many clever and enthusiastic (and sometimes a little demanding 😉) people! From Monday (1 November) Pål is back as leader, welcome again!

Have a really good Halloween weekend!

A farewell letter from Marius Alvheim

After 2 fantastic years as an apprentice at K2, with a diploma in hand, I set off for uncharted waters. I have met many wonderful people and learned a lot of useful things that I now carry with me in life. It’s hard to say goodbye to a job I’ve enjoyed so much, but sometimes in life, goodbye is something you have to say and change is not something you can prevent. So thank you for my time here everyone, and thanks for 2 amazing years. I’m going to miss K2 in its entirety and all the wonderful people here. With UiB mail disabled and phone delivered to K2’s new apprentice Tonje whom I hope you take good care of, I leave you with one quote from my favorite CEO Elon Musk.
“Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace change if the alternative is disaster.”

I also leave my private email address if anyone needs it.
MariusAlvheim@gmail.com

Thanks for the time K2. You’re going to be missed.
