Two new SFF at NV-faculty (15.03.2017)
The Research Council of Norway today announced that two new centres of excellence will be established at NTNU, both of them at the NV faculty and Department of Physics. CBD congratulates the NV-faculty and the Department of Physics, and the two new centre leaders, prof. Alex Hansen and prof. Arne Brataas. Read more about the two centres here >>.
CBD welcomes Professor Bob O'Hara (17.02.2017)
Professor Bob O'Hara has recently started as Professor at CBD. He will have office both at the Department of Mathematical Sciences and at the CBD-wing of the Natural Sciences Building. Bob spends most of his time working on ecology and evolutionary biology, mainly statistical analyses. At present he is mainly working on developing niche models for species distributions, incorporating observation processes, and looking to add temporal dynamics and interactions between species into the models. This has meant the development of statistical models and methods to deal with such complex and messy data.
New people at CBD (17.02.2017)
The last months several new PhD candidates have started at CBD. These will strengthen core research areas at CBD, and become part of strong research groups in ecology and evolution. Presentation of the new PhD candidates can be found here >>.
New Postdoctor-position available (16.02.2017)
Read more about the new available position as at Postdoctor position in quantitative genetics/population ecology
CBD part of the kick-off of the new NV faculty at NTNU (09.01.2017)
Last Thursday the new Faculty of Natural Sciences (NV) at NTNU had its kick-off, with several interesting talks about the organisation, research and education, and future plans for the new faculty. CBD is proud to be hosted by the new faculty, and grateful for the opportunity to present our vision and strategies for our work as a centre of excellence at NTNU. Program and presentations from the kick-off can be found here.
