Norway's premier institute of excellence in interdisciplinary fundamental research.
Scholars from the 2015/16 project 'Climate Effects on Harvested Large Mammal Populations' publish their research on the Scandianvian brown bear in the prestigious scholarly journal.
The Centre for Advanced Study (CAS Oslo) is searching for a new scientific director to lead the Centre for the next three years. Deadline: 21 January 2018.
Assistant Professor Andrew Teale, a participant in the project 'Molecules in Extreme Environments,' is recognized by the European Research Council as one of Europe's top scholars.
CAS Oslo fellows involved in the research project 'The Nordic "Civil Wars" in the High Middle Ages in a Comparative Perspective' debate whether some civil wars can have positive consequences -- and whether they should even be called civil wars.
Extreme chemistry may sound exciting to work with, but for most of us it can be very hard to grasp what researchers in such fields are actually working on. This is especially true if they are looking into the composition and properties of elements that do not exist on Earth.
Chemistry normally deals with the predictable behaviour of matter – how atoms form molecules, and how the molecules react when introduced to one another. But how do those same molecules behave in unpredictable conditions? Trygve Ulf Helgaker, professor of theoretical chemistry at the University of Oslo, is aiming to find out.
John Comaroff, professor of African and African-American Studies and Anthropology at Harvard University, deconstructs myths about political structures in Southern Africa in this CAS Oslo seminar.
