Transdisciplinary grants for young researchers

Are you in dire need of help from a person outside your research group? Did you find your “research-match-made-in-heaven” at the last Digital Life Norway conference? Do you have a great idea on how to make your project even better, and have found a potential “partner in crime”? This call is for you!

Digital Life industry internships

PhD students from the centre and the research school are given the chance to try out a professional path outside academia through a three-months internship at a biotech company in or outside Norway. For the internship period you will have the opportunity to choose a project that you see relevant for your further career development, and take part in the daily activities and work routines of the host company.
