Opportunities

For Potential Masters Students

The Theoretical Ecology Groups welcomes new Masters students in all our research themes. Here are some relevant topics:

You can also check our Research web page and contanct potential supervisors directly to inquire whether they will have an opening for new MSc students in the near future. The best way to make first contact is to present your background and research interests briefly in an email.

Information on application dates, housing and many other practicalities for being a Master of Science (MSc) student at Department of Biology, University of Bergen, can be found here. Most or all MSc education at the Department of Biology (and the Faculty of Science) is in English, and most MSc theses are written in English.

Open Positions

Vacant PhD and researcher positions at UiB and Uni Research of relevance for TEG will be advertised on this page. Currently there are no positions open.

On Becoming a PhD Student

PhD studies at University of Bergen are based on employment at UiB or one of the cooperating research institutes, such as Uni Research. All PhD positions at UiB must be openly advertised. There is thus no reason to contact a TEG researcher to ask for a PhD opportunity. It is possible, however, to contact a researcher to propose a PhD project within one of TEGs research fields, for which a grant application can be submitted to the Research Council of Norway (RCN). Deadline for such applications is normally June 1, and RCN requires that the supervisor is the formal applicant. The competition within RCN is strong, with more than 90% rejection rate. Suggestion for such proposals must therefore come months before the deadline.

What do our students do after they have finished?

We have interviewed some of our students to give an idea of what life after studies can be like. Please follow this link to find out more.
