Sommerjobb i Statoil

Statoil ønsker velkommen sommerstudenter som har fullført det andre året på bachelorgraden sin, men ennå ikke ferdigstilt mastergraden. De tilbyr seks til åtte ukers betalt arbeid, relevant arbeidserfaring, et faglig og sosialt nettverk, samt innsikt i industrien. Stillingene spenner helt fra den spisse enden til stab- og støttefunksjoner. Spørsmål rettes til Mari Vie Mæland (mvm@statoil.com). Søknadsfrist: 28. januar.

Important! – Register your science in Cristin before January 31

All the books, papers, conference contributions (talks, posters) etc that you published during 2017 need to be registered in the Cristin database. Cristin is the database that is used to compute the publishing part of our funding for coming 2019. It is a very good idea to register an item in Cristin as soon as the bibliographic information (volume, page number etc) is official – this way it becomes searchable in Cristin and thus your web site as soon as possible. In any case, please take a second look and include everything that has not been registered yet.  At present, we have 50 entries in the Cristin database for 2017 and close-to 70 entries in the paper gallery — clearly we have a way to go.

How-to-register information.

NB! The deadline for registering your scientific production for 2017 is January 31!

Kurs – lære å skrive kronikker og populærvitenskapelig tekster

Forskere ved MatNat-fakultetet inviteres til skrivekurs på tirsdag 20.mars fra 9.00-16.00.  Målet er å sette deltakerne i stand  å skrive kronikk eller populærvitenskapelig tekst for avis, blad eller nettsteder som forskning.no. Kursledere er redaktør Nina Kristiansen og kronikkansvarlig Eivind Lauritsen ved Forskning.no.

Ingen kursavtilgift. Det er ønskelig at deltakelsen speiler hele fakultetet.

Alle deltakere må på forhånd sende inn et utkast til kronikk, som vil bli gjennomgått i løpet av kursdagen.

NB! Kurset foregår på norsk

Elektronisk påmelding med frist: Fredag 9. mars 2018 skjer her.Kontakt kommunikasjonsrådgiver Asbjørn Leirvåg, mobil 41 42 33 41 / asbjorn.leirvag@uib.no

Vijay disputerer!

Vijayaragavan Elumalai disputerer fredag den 19. januar med avhandlingen “Novel Synthetic Methodology and Total Syntheses of Highly Functionalized Carbazoles and Benzo[c]cinnolines.” Doktorgradsarbeidet ble utført i Faggruppe for organisk syntese og legemiddelkjemi med professor Hans-René Bjørsvik som veileder.

Skolebesøk

Det nærmer seg årets slutt og den årvisse tradisjonen med besøk av skoleelever. Når våre Kjem110-studenter er ferdig med laboratoriekurset åpnes kurssalene for potensielltnye studenter.

Noen har kanskje observert store flokker av små voksne som ferdes rundt i gangene og lurt på om studentene har blitt ekstra unge? Her er kanskje svaret:

Fra fagdagen «Ka vil DU bli?»

Det pågår lab. kurs for elever i den videregående skolen og innen kurstilbudet avsluttes medio desember har det vært innom rundt 370 elever som har spesialisering i kjemi (Kjemi1 eller Kjemi2).

I tillegg har vi hatt besøk av rundt 70 fjortiser (eller niendeklassinger) fordelt på tre fredager i november.

Mer informasjon om tilbudene finnes selvfølgelig på instituttets hjemmeside, hvor ellers?

Busy Thursday – nano & NMR

This Thursday is a busy day for chemists. For those engaged in nanoscience and nanoscience-related research,

the full-day nanoBergen meeting at Hotel Scandic Neptun is a must. Starting at 8.30 am, the program presents an update on the diverse research activities in the network as well as information about and invitation to join new initiatives.

To celebrated the purchase and successful installation of a top-notch 600 MHz NMR spectrometer and to inspire to many future projects to be run on this platform, the regular Thursday lunch seminar is expanded into a session of three invited lectures, starting fashionably late at 1.15pm. The program is as follows:

Directly following the last talk, you are invited for a stroll down-hill for the grand opening and cutting of ribbons at NNP, in the good company of Rector Olsen, Dean Dahle and other distinguished guests.

Seminar on Ion Mobility MS

Wednesday (Nov 22) at 12:15-13:00 @ Tripletten, application scientist at Agilent, Dr Shaun Bilsborough, will present the possibilities and applications of Ion mobility Mass spectrometry. Coffee and Danish pastry will be served.

While high resolution mass spectrometry has become the analytical cornerstone for many research applications requiring the analysis of highly complex samples, there has also been significant interest in the use of ultra-fast orthogonal techniques to provide added dimensions of separation. In multiple studies, the ion-mobility instrument has demonstrated the ability to reveal significantly greater analytical detail for complex samples compared to high resolution mass spectrometry technology alone. The 6560 Ion Mobility Quadrupole Time-of-Flight (IM-QTOF) LC/MS is the first commercially available uniform field ion mobility system, which coupled with the 1290 UHPLC, provides the combined separation power and selectivity of LC, IM, and MS techniques. Laboratories involved in cutting edge research can speed up research programs and have greater confidence in compound identification with the additional dimension of separation as well as the structural information provided by ion mobility measurements. The system enables high performance ion mobility and very precise and accurate collision cross section (CCS or W) measurements without class dependent calibration standards. The ion mobility device operates under uniform low field conditions, thus allowing the drift time information for ions to be directly converted to collision cross section information.

 

Dept of Chemistry receives the faculty HSE award for 2017

At the annual HSE seminar at VilVite today, the Department of Chemistry was awarded the faculty HSE prize for 2017! The prize was awarded for our effort to establish and maintain a rather comprehensive set of social & professional meeting grounds for employees and students. In addition to the old-timers, Monday morning coffee and Friday waffle gathering, and the refurbished meeting points, Thursday chemistry lunch seminars and KjemiNytt, two novelties of the year were important for winning the award. The bachelor room for chemistry students is ready for furnishing at the U floor and KFU has secured some really nice second-hand furniture from the migrating Science library. Our new social meeting room at the 3rd floor is rapidly approaching inauguration – the glass walls are being mounted as you read. In conclusion, we have won a prestigious award and, more importantly, the two new rooms create some very exciting opportunities that you are very welcome to help develop!
