About the position

We have an open temporary 3-year position as a PhD candidate or postdoc fellow at the Centre for Fertility and Health, a Centre of Excellence funded by the Research Council of Norway. The Centre for Fertility and Health is part of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health in Oslo, Norway.

The aim of the Centre for Fertility and Health is to generate novel insights in how fertility patterns and family structures affect children's and adults' health through social and biological mechanisms. In order to contribute to such knowledge, analyzes need to also account for how socio-economic resources, political attitudes, norms and health conditions affect the number of children and the timing of childbearing. We are looking for a person interested in these research topics and with a relevant background.

The person hired will have the opportunity to contribute to designing the doctoral or postdoctoral project in collaboration with the main supervisor or mentor. The research theme for the project must be within one or more of the research themes presented. It will be possible to use data from Norwegian registers, from the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Cohort Study, other population health surveys, as well as other data.

We are looking for a medical doctor who would like to conduct cutting edge research. Knowledge about the Norwegian health system is necessary. If you would be hired as a PhD student, the position will likely be linked to the PhD program at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo. Whether we choose to hire a research fellow or postdoctoral fellow will depend on the qualifications of the applicants.

As a doctoral fellow or postdoctoral fellow in the centre, you will be part of an interdisciplinary and international research team consisting of medical doctors, epidemiologists, geneticists, biologists, demographers and statisticians. We are a growing center with a strong professional and social environment, and have recently hired several postdocs and doctoral fellows.

The Centre for Fertility and Health currently has more than 50 associated employees, and will most likely grow in the future as a result of new research projects. The Centre also has an extensive collaboration with international research groups. It will likely be possible to spend time abroad during the PhD or postdoc period.

The candidate will be part of a large and broad research environment at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and have opportunities to shape their own work and research.
