Fun day at Kronstad

Yesterday, EXPO-2018 took place at the Kronstad Campus of Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL). Some 700 freshly minted engineers and economists presented their bachelor projects, about 270 in total, by way of posters, stands and enthusiasm. The picture shows the award-winning «best stand in show», featuring extraction and quantitative analysis of parabenes in on-campus-brewed beer. Focussing on the chemical and biochemical engineers, lots of talent was evident — hopefully more than a few of them show up as MSc-students in our departement over the summer? EXPO is an annual event — something to consider visiting next June?

Invitation to the Leiv K. Sydnes Symposium

On the occasion of Professor Leiv K. Sydnes’s 70th birthday in July, colleagues and former students are organising a two-day symposium on May 15th-16th 2018, honouring his long-standing contribution to the Norwegian and international scientific community.

NMR-gruppa på nasjonal konferanse

7.-9. mars deltok NMR-gruppen med 5 MSc-studenter og vitenskapelig ansatte på NMR-konferansen MR2018 i Tromsø. Her ble ulike forskningsprosjekter presentert hvor bruk av væske- og fastfase-NMR samt MRI inngår sentralt. Med fullt program av spennende foredragsholdere fra flere land i Europa ble dette en svært lærerik tur. Hovedtalerne var Teodor Parella, Gerhard Wagner og Adam Espe Hansen.

MR2018 var en utrolig lærerik, men ikke minst gøyal konferanse hvor man fikk møte og skape nettverk med topp forskere innen eget fagområde. I tillegg fikk man nyte naturen på Sommarøya og se nordlys danse over himmelen. (Tekst: Merethe B.)

PhD day at the MN Faculty- April 9 @ VilVite

A PhD survival camp

PhD life is full of questions. In which journal should I publish? What are the pitfalls when writing? How do I find funding for publishing fees? Do I need a data management plan? (Spoiler: Yes, you do!) Which data to include in one? How do I increase visibility of my work? How do I spot «junk» or «fake» science? Have I overlooked relevant literature?

The MN Library offers PhD candidates a seminar addressing these questions: April 10th, 9:00 -16:00,  Auditorium at VilVite 

Tentative schedule:

How to find the literature you need (9:00 – 9:45)

Get access to the literature you want (9:45 – 10:00)

Data management plan (10:15 – 11:15)

  • Write a data management plan for your PhD project and EU or NFR proposals
  • Publish data together with your article
  • Archive your data for the future

Writing a research paper – a survival guide (11:15 – 12:15)

In this humorous presentation Bodil Holst takes you through some of the pitfalls and challenges of scientific paper writing. 

Free Lunch 12:15 – 13:00

Publishing process and copyright (13:00 – 14:00)

How you get evaluated and what you can do to improve your impact (14:00-15:00)

Web of Science vs Google Scholar (15:00 – 15:30)

Wrap up  (15:30-15:45)

Mini seminar in organic synthesis

In connection with Vijay’s disputation on Friday, the two opponents give a two-talk seminar on Thursday January 18, in Tripletten.

14:00 Prof. Hans-Joachim Knölker, Dept. Chemistry, TU Dresden: Transition Metals in Heterocyclic Synthesis.

15:15 Prof. Trond Vidar Hansen, Dept. Pharmaceutical Chemistry, School of Pharmacy, UiO: Stereoselective Synthesis, Biosynthesis, Biological Activities and Applications of Specialized Pro-Resolving Lipid Mediators: Novel Leads in Drug Discovery.

Your attendance is welcome!

Opening of Medical Imaging and Visualization Centre

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.

Join the Horizons lecture on Tuesday 4 pm

The Horizons series is a lecture series for staff and students of The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, and for all others that are interested in major scientific questions and/or challenges across disciplinary borders. You are hereby encouraged to spend an hour on Tuesday afternoon to learn about recent advances in the use of genomics to uncover our our distant history.

Eske Willerslev – Hunting the past with ancient genomics

How can ancient genomics be used to address questions of the deeper and more shallow past? Evolutionary geneticist Eske Willerslev will try to answer in the Horizon lecture. For more information, see here.

Time and place: Tuesday Oct 31, 4 pm, at Auditorium 1, Realfagbygget
