Thanks to the enthusiasm and know-how of Monica, Karianne and Unni LB, the Department of Chemistry is now proudly launching our own instagram account. The purpose is to attain increased visibility to and interaction with prospective and present students, with glimpses from research and life as a student at our department. Please navigate your browser to https://www.instagram.com/kjemisk_uib/ and log-in, sign-up, follow or whatever you like. Please also supply Karianne with photos and comments to add to this stream, and cross-post and tag as you see fit.

Brannalarmen i dag var en øvelse – i regi av eiendomsavdelingen. Vi oppfordrer alle som evakueres til å trekke lengre unna utgangspartiene når vi evakuerer bygget.
The alarm today was a fire drill – initiated by Estate and Facilities Management Division. We kindly ask all employees and students to move further away from the doors (and building) when evacuated

Vi har i det siste fått god drahjelp fra Øystein Rygg Haanæs til å presentere forskinga vår på ein måte som er tilgjengeleg for mange, sjå her og her, og Øystein har fleire historier fra Kjemisk institutt på vei. Det er flott og verdifullt, men likevel er det grenser for kor mykje éin person kan rekke på i samarbeid med dei ulike forskningsgruppene. Kva om vi sjølve kan skrive og publisere i kanalar som når eit breitt publikum i Norge? Kronikkansvarlig ved Forskning.no, Eivind Lauritsen, kjem til Bergen torsdag 16. januar 2020 kl 9-16, for å gi eit Skrivekurs for forskarar.
Målet er å sette deltakerne i stand til å skrive kronikk eller populærvitenskapelig tekst for avis, blad eller nettsteder som forskning.no og Aftenposten Viten. Alle deltakere må forplikte seg til å sende inn utkast til tekst, som vil bli gjennomgått i løpet av kursdagen. Deltakerne vil få videre oppfølging av teksten etter kurset, med sikte på publisering på forskning.no
Deltakerne vil lære mer om:
- Slik gjør du en tekst interessant.
- Språk: Hvordan skrive enkelt om det vanskelige.
- Hvordan få leserne gjennom hele artikkelen?
- Sjangre. Kronikken, bloggen, nyhetsartikkelen.
- Treningsøkter og øvelser.
- Tilbakemelding på tilsendte tekster.
- Slik møter du journalister.
Autumn is soon upon us and soon it will be a new year. And whether you are planning on spending the rest of your 2019 vacation days under the sun or in the snow, there is one thing you have to do right away: Register your rest-vacation for 2019 in PAGA. It is a requirement that everyone registers their vacation, and it is the general rule that all vacation days has to be taken within the calendar year.
Not sure when you’ll be going or taking days off? Register it now anyway (you can change it later), and avoid running the risk of someone else deciding when you’re going to take days off. You will also be relieved from the stress of being followed up through emails and visits from the administration.
The deadline for registering the rest-vacation days is 15th of November 2019 so please make it a priority. Further information on how to register vacation can be found here (in Norwegian). If you have any questions regarding vacation or the registration of vacation I PAGAWEB, please contact your local HR professional at your department.

The insect gray silverfish (or long-tailed silverfish, in Norwegian: skjeggkre) should now be regarded as an established part of the population at the first and third floors, and by induction, also at the second floor of Realfagsbygget. While completely harmless, this insect multiplies rapidly and it is very difficult to get rid of once you get it into your house. It is therefore recommendable to take some simple precautions. When unpacking goods of any kind in your office or lab, please bring the paper or carton wrapping down to the basement right away. Do not use the paper bin in the mail room. Moreover, clear your floor space from unnecessary clutter, making the whole floor accessible to the cleaning personnel. Do not leave backpacks or bags at your office floor (escpecially over night!) and avoid transporting good hiding places (carton boxes etc) between home and UiB. For more information, see here.

The main objectives of the new service portal are: A single gateway to administrative services; Information and inquiries in one place; Employees and students get help more quickly; Automation and increased self-service, and Better flow and coordination of cases between divisions
