CompSci is a Doctoral Programme launched and managed by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Oslo (UiO). It is partly funded by the EU Horizon 2020 under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) - Co-funding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND).
The CompSci Doctoral Program will recruit 32 PhDs in two calls. In this Call, we open for applications to the 1st cohort of 16 PhD fellowship positions, that will join our PhD programme starting autumn 2021 at UiO.
The CompSci doctoral program will train a new generation of natural science researchers with a foundation in computational methods - providing them with the knowledge, skills and vision to digitally transform the European education, research, government and industry sectors.
The target groups of the program are highly talented aspiring researchers with backgrounds in physics, chemistry, bioscience, materials science, mathematics, astronomy or geoscience, who are finishing or have just finished their master degree or have less than four years of full-time equivalent (FTE) research experience.
As a CompSci fellow you will go through a three-month intensive training in computational and data science with a team of doctoral students from across the natural sciences. You will then apply and develop those skills in a research project in your discipline of choice in an internationally leading research group. All CompSci fellows will be enrolled as PhD students in one of the departments at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
More about the PhD projects
Detailed descriptions of the projects offered in the CompSci programme can be found under Projects, sorted by the following categories of Astronomy, Biosciences, Chemistry, Geosciences, Mathematics and Physics.
Each project will require slightly different expertise and experience, but all require a combination of disciplinary skills and computational skills acquired through the program. We seek motivated and independent students from a wide range of disciplines with an interest in developing their skills computational science and using these skills to impact research in their discipline.
Deadline: 1 March 2021.
