NTNU Onsager Fellowship

The Onsager Fellowship programme is designed to recruit young, internationally recognized researchers to strengthen the university's academic community.

The target group is researchers with a minimum of three to five years post-doctoral experience. The applicants should have a high level of academic proficiency, along with the ability to work independently and obtain external research funding.

The positions are temporary with the possibility of tenure after completion of the fellowship.

The Onsager Fellowship Programme is named after the Norwegian-American chemist and physicist Lars Onsager (1903–1976). He received a Ch.E. degree from the Norwegian Institute of Technology (that later became NTNU) in 1925. In 1968 he received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for work done in 1931 on irreversible thermodynamics.
