Information for prospective Master, PhD students and postdocs at the University of Oslo:

There is an open call for 3-year postdoctoral fellowship positions at UiO with application deadline 14 April 2024 and starting date no later than 1 October 2024. These are Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) -type postdoc positions co-funded by a EU Horizon Europe grant related to the integration of computational techniques and data science with natural sciences. At least one of the 18 advertised positions should be allocated to Astrophysics under the general topic of “Understanding the Universe through Big Data analysis and Machine Learning". On this webpage you can find a generic abstract and a few possible topics to guide the applicants in designing their project description, but each applicant is free to propose their own project and will be evaluated mostly based on their CV. We have a strong interest in receiving applications linked to the MOONS@VLT, Euclid and AtLAST projects.

I would be happy to host Horizon Europe's Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships, especially if the proposed project has overlap with the following topics: sub-mm observations (both galactic and extragalactic), sub-mm instrumentation development (e.g. in relation to AtLAST), multi-object near-infrared and optical spectroscopic extragalactic surveys (e.g. in relation to MOONS@VLT), multi-wavelength observations of galactic outflows and study of feedback processes in galaxies, binary and dual super massive black holes. Every year the UiO MN Faculty organises a Master Class for prospective MSCA applicants around May-June, and the MSCA application deadline is usually around September-October. Info at this link (June 2023).
