Overview of the project:
Scandinavia has a strong tradition of comparative physiological research where physiological systems and adaptations have been investigated, often following Krogh’s principle and using non-model organisms. It is the ambition of the Animal Physiology section at the Department of Biology, NTNU, that this tradition of world-leading comparative animal physiology continues with the two Associate Professor positions to be filled. With several new hires, the Animal Physiology section is undergoing significant changes, which creates a unique opportunity to build a novel research environment with ambitious aims. On this occasion, we are aiming to hire two academics with strong research track records addressing any animal group, organ system, or research questions within the fields of comparative physiology, evolutionary physiology, or animal ecophysiology. The positions are open for all research topics and animal models within the fields of animal physiology, with the exception of medical and aquaculture-related research topics.

For both positions it is required that you meet the criteria in the Norwegian Regulations concerning appointment and promotion to teaching and research posts section 1-4. The positions are in principle open for all research topics and animal models within the fields of animal physiology, with the exception of medical and aquaculture-related research topics.

Applicants with teaching experience at university level are preferred. Quality and breadth of the teaching qualifications will be evaluated, ref. Regulations. Those who do not have formal qualifications in teaching at the university level and who cannot provide documentation of equivalent qualifications must complete an approved pedagogical development programme (offered by NTNU) within two years of appointment.
