PhD course- CCBIO903

You still have the opportunity to register for the CCBIO903 course, Cancer Research: Ethical, economical and societal aspects: 29 January-2 February and 19-22 February 2018.  

CCBIO903 is a 5 ECTS credits PhD course within CCBIO’s Research School for Cancer Studies (RSCS). All PhD candidates within cancer research (in Norway and abroad) are welcome to apply. Other cancer researchers as well as students at the Medical Student Research Programme at the UiB are also welcome.

Cancer researchers and clinicians face important questions and dilemmas every day:

How can we deal with the uncertainties in the lab, while maintaining the quality of our science?
Which drug is more suited to a patient?
How can medical science contribute to debates on what is good for society?
How can economic models help guide health care resource allocation?

The course addresses these questions, and will focus on aspects such as how to assess the cost-effectiveness of cancer biomarkers, how to make medical decisions when surrounded by risks, uncertainties and even ignorance, what the ‘good life’ can actually mean, and what the future may hold for cancer research. PhD candidates will be invited to reflect upon the ethical, economic and social aspects of their own research, in interaction with scholars and other students.

Read more here. Also see poster.

Registration: Registration for vacant places until 25 January 2018. Use this registration link.

Instructors include John Cairns and Kelly Seo (CCBIO & London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine); Ole F. Norheim and Eirik Tranvåg (CCBIO & the Dept. of Global Public Health and Primary Care, UiB); Caroline Engen and Elisabeth Wik (CCBIO); and Roger Strand and Anne Blanchard (CCBIO & Centre for the Study of the Sciences and the Humanities, UiB).

PhD seminar

Bergen- St.Petersburg ph.d. seminar in Clinical neurology and neuroepidemiologyphd-seminar

Place: Bikuben Conference Center
Time: Thursday, November 9th 2017

Find more information here: Program


To all PhD candidates and Post-Docs at UiB

Are you missing a forum to discuss with other PhD and Post-Docs across faculties? Are you missing social activities to meet other PhDs/Post-Docs?
Are you aware of your rights and responsibilities as a temporary employee? Do you know whom to contact with questions regarding your contract?
Would you like to attend seminars and courses to further develop academically and scientifically (topics such as; career development, open access and open science, Ph.D. with kids, equality policies)?

We wish to establish a local interest organisation for all PhD students and Post Docs (including young researchers with temporary positions) at UiB. We are getting help from The Association of Doctoral Organisations in Norway (SiN, http://stipendiat.no/) and their local affiliations at universities across Norway.

We need you to show your interest for the existence of such an organisation. You do that by becoming a member of the facebook group: “PhD students and Post-Docs at UiB” (https://www.facebook.com/groups/116433559065620/?ref=bookmarks). If you do not have a facebook account, or you do not wish to join this group, but you are still interested in learning more; contact mailto:Ronja.hesthammer@uib.no– and she will forward you information by email.
Are you not sure what to think of this?
Please join our information meeting October 9th, where representatives from SiN and the other local organisations will share information about how they work at other universities and what they picture we can do here at UiB.
The “when and where” of this meeting will be posted in the facebook group shortly.


Invitation to Helsinki Life Science Day

Fellow NorDoc Graduate Students,
We are happy to invite you to the first ever Helsinki Life Science Day, organized by graduate students of Doctoral School in Health Sciences in University of Helsinki.
This year the Helsinki Life Science Day will take place on November 9th. The morning session will be held at Viikki Campus in Helsinki. Prof. Velia Fowler (Scripps Institute, La Jolla, USA) will present the keynote lecture, and Juuso Parkkinen (Reaktor, Finland) will share his wisdom and tell us how to maximize our impact and use the skills we learn during our PhD to change the world. Students will have a chance to present their work with either oral presentations or posters.
For more information and registration, visit our webpages at http://www.helsinki.fi/health/PhD_Day2017/ or https://www.facebook.com/HelsinkiLifeScienceDay/.
The deadline for registration is 27.10.2017. Due limited space, we can take up to five students from each NorDoc university, so be quick!
