The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Oslo announces a special MSCA-Cofund Ph.D. programme in computational sciences. In 2021, 16 Ph.D. students will be accepted, of whom two will do their Ph.D. theses within computational astrophysics.

The programme starts with 3 months’ intensive joint training in computational methods, before the students will spend the rest of the 3-year programme at different departments, to do a strongly computational research project in their department. Through the three-year programme, the students will also participate in three joint workshops, and they will for a period of one to three months be on secondment to other academic or commercial institutions.

Prospective students must fulfil all requirements (academic and language) for being admitted as Ph.D. students in the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. Applicants cannot have been resident in Norway for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the date of recruitment.

The Ph.D. students will receive a salary of NOK 479 600 – 523 200 per annum depending on qualifications and seniority.

Application deadline is 1st of March, 2021.
