The Department of Biology at Bergen University has a vacancy for an associate professor in palaeoecology. This is a tenured position. The successful candidate will get to use these labs and may have a view over Ulriken from their office window.
Ulriken is the highest, at over 600 m, of several mountains around the city which are pleasant to hike across (there is a cable car up Ulriken for those not inclined to walk up). An hour away by train, there is an alpine ski resort at Voss, and many mountains to climb.
Bergen is a beautiful city, even when the sun doesn’t shine.
