Professorship at the Department of Mathematics
University of Bergen
There is a vacancy for an associate professor at the Department of Mathematics, University of Bergen, in applied mathematics with particular emphasis on fluid mechanics and ocean modeling.
About the department
The Department of Mathematics carries out research and education in pure and applied mathematics, statistics and teacher education. We offer an internationally oriented and dynamic work environment with a strong focus on basic research.
The position is within the research group in fluid mechanics. The research group presently consists of 4 full professors, 1 postdoctoral fellow and 8 PhD students. In addition, the group has a good track record in educating master students. The group carries out research within the fields of compressible flow, water waves, ocean modelling and environmental fluid mechanics. Group members are active in pursuing external research funding from the EU commission and the Research Council, and have also participated in various industry-related projects.
Work tasks/research field:
The position is intended for an active researcher in the field of fluid mechanics to strengthen the department's ability to participate in applied ocean and marine research and educate students with a solid background in applied mathematics, numerics and mechanics.
Marine research is one of the priority areas of The University of Bergen, and the department expects that the successful candidate will be actively engaged in some aspect of fluid mechanics, ocean modeling, marine research, or renewable energy such as wind, tidal or wave energy. The initiation of national and international project activities will also be evaluated. Candidates whose research vision demonstrates clear potential to collaborate with the existing group in fluid mechanics will be preferred.
Current activities in the group also include data driven research and modeling of complex systems and methods for data analysis. Process oriented models, ranging from large scale general circulation models and wave forecasting models to nearshore Boussinesq models and smaller-scale models, are also under consideration.
The University of Bergen is a hub for marine and ocean research. The Department of Mathematics has a tradition of collaborating with the Geophysics Institute, and also has strong ties with the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center and the Institute of Marine Research both of which are located in Bergen. In addition, the successful candidate may also pursue collaborations with the Norwegian Meteorological Institute, the Norwegian Research Centre (NORCE) and the Center for Data Science (CEDAS).
The associate professor is required to undertake teaching and related examination work, supervise Master and PhD students, present own research results at conferences and in international journals, and to fully participate in the other main activities in the department.
Qualifications and personal qualities:
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in applied and computational mathematics, fluid mechanics or oceanography, or equivalent qualifications.
Applicants must have a strong research background in at least one of the research fields mentioned above.
Applicants must be able to work independently and have strong collaborative skills.
Applicants must be able to contribute in research teams both as leader and as participant.
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to externally financed research activities, and should document the ambition to acquire external research funding.
Applicants must have excellent skills in oral and written English.
Personal and relational qualities will be emphasized. Research experience, ambitions and potential will also count when evaluating the candidates.
Basic teaching training and experience in the supervision of students at university level is a requirement for the position as associate professor. This implies completed formal pedagogical training, as well as basic skills in planning, implementation, evaluation and development of teaching and supervision. Relevant courses in combination with actual teaching experience could replace a completed course in teaching and learning in higher education. Should the successful applicant not have such competence at the time of appointment, he/she will be required to document such training within two years of the date of their appointment.
Educational competence must be documented in an educational portfolio which should include a documented overview of practical experience and competence as well as a brief reflection statement. The statement should primarily describe the applicant's own teaching philosophy and an evaluation of own teaching in relation to his/her knowledge of students' learning at a higher education level. You will find more detailed information about the documentation of educational competence here (available in English on request).
The teaching language will normally be Norwegian. The successful applicant must be able to teach in Norwegian or another Scandinavian language within two years of being appointed.
University of Bergen emphasizes educational qualifications for appointment to scientific positions.
