Working as a researcher in Norway - a few testimonials
With orcas and whales as neighbours
Professor Bodil Bluhm has found the perfect location for Arctic research. A dynamic academic environment, beautiful natural surroundings and excellent social benefits brought the German researcher to Tromsø in the northern reaches.
Excellent assistance for all practical needs
Post-doctoral fellow David Palma from Portugal says that the way NTNU welcomes researchers from abroad is outstanding and that this made it much easier to adapt to Norwegian culture.
Enjoys the Norwegian balance between work and private life
Associate Professor Douglas Rossinow from the US first came to Norway in 2013 with his family on a six-month Fulbright grant. He and his family enjoyed their stay so much that they decided to come back when the University of Oslo offered him a position in 2016.
This is where I belong
Post-doctoral fellow Svetlana Sorokina from Russia has fallen in love with Bergen. She is currently in her ninth year in the city after arriving as a doctoral student.
Everything here is so well organised and the people so helpful
Associate Professor Mahdi Kioumarsi from Iran came to Norway to complete a doctorate. He thinks it was easy to get used to life in Norway and likes it so much that he intends to stay a few more years.
