Dear colleagues,

With this, my first working week after the summer holidays is complete, and it is a pleasure to experience that we are back at it again. It’s been so nice to see you all again! On Monday morning I encounterned a large group of students outside Høytek, and I also heard Støre point out the importance of both grades AND characters at Muséplass on Monday morning (lost in translation!). A very nice way to start to the semester!

And now the wheels are getting in motion again, and the administration is ready to help you with bits and bobs. I therefore wish to remind you of our website on “who does what”, where you will find useful contact information:

Contact us – who does what? | Department of Biological Sciences (BIO) | UiB

I would also like to welcome some new faces to the administration:

Therese Myhre Odfjell has started in HR at MATNAT, and will be Mathilde’s substitute when she goes on leave in October.

And Maja Brix is ​​our new institute contact at the Research and Innovation Department (FIA).

In addition, on Monday we will welcome Vetle, who will start as an apprentice in service and administration with us. We are happy to welcome a new apprentice, which is an arrangement where Vetle will have a workplace and affiliation with BIO, while HR covers the wages. I hope you will all make sure that Vetle gets a good start with us at BIO. He will have his office space in the reception, together with Jarle.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend,
