Jostein Bakke (JB) holds a position as Professor at Department of Earth Science and is a meber of the Quaternary Research group. JB is Dr. scient (PhD) in Physical Geography from Department of Geography at University of Bergen. JB has research experience in Quaternary geology, physical geography, glacial history, palaeoclimatology, geomorphology, and lake sediments world wide. JB defended his doctor Scientiarum thesis ”Late Weichselian and Holocene glacier fluctuations along a coastal south-north transect in Norway – climatic and methodological implications” 16.04.2004 at Department of Geography, University of Bergen. JB has eight years with experience as lecturer through 25% teaching during his PhD and first 20% and later 100% position as Associate Professor/Professor at Department of Geography and Department of Earth Science, UiB. JB has supervised 35 master and 6 PhD students, extensive teaching experience from 11 courses, published 24 papers in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, 2 reports, 22 popular science articles and 56 conference papers at international conferences. JB is currently member of a research group at the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research [awarded Centre of Excellence by the Norwegian Research Council] studying the dynamics of Holocene climate in the North Atlantic region and leader on the NRC funded five-year project SHIFTS working in the polar regions of the world. JB is holder of the Fulbright Arctic Chair Award for the academic year 2011/2012. JB has earlier been funded through NRC project called X-LAKE studying geochemical composition in lakes along the coast of Norway and the NRC funded project ARCTREC. In the nationally co-ordinated NORPAST-2 research project, funded by the NRC, JB was post doc of one of the project modules studying Lateglacial and Holocene climate variability. JB was affiliated on a Strategic University Program (SUP) entitled «Norwegian paleoenvironment and climate as reconstructed from lake sediments (NORPEC)», funded by the NRC during his PhD scholarship.
