Jan Reinert Karlsen, born 22nd September 1974 (Kristiansand, Norway), received his training in philosophy of science and medical research ethics at the University of Bergen and University of Oslo, respectively. He holds the degrees of Cand. Philol. (2003) and Ph.D. (2011). 

His main research contributions have been made within the fields of historical epistemology, medical research ethics and philosophy of the life sciences. The focal point of his studies has been on the dynamics of (self) interpretation, signification and representation of science in the science-policy and science-humanities interfaces. He has studied the problem of demarcation in philosophy of science through adapting Georges Canguilhem ́s concept of ‘scientific ideology’ to the history of molecular genetics and analysed the inherent paradoxes and normative complexities, which emerge at the policy level, of adopting medical research ethics to the contexts of genomic science, research biobanking and xenotransplantation. His current research interests centres around the epistemology of suffering, the problem of complexity within cognitive neuroscience and the CRISPR/Cas9- debate. 

Karlsen has been affiliated with the Centre for the studies of the sciences and the humanities since 1999, both as a student and later as a member of its permanent staff. He has participated on several international research projects and has served on a range of committees and councils.

From 2010 he has been in charge of developing and delivering a university-wide educational provision, viz. Crucial issues in science and society, at the University of Bergen, for which he, and Roger Strand, were awarded the prestigious prize for best learning environment at the University of Bergen in 2011. The provision is so far comprised of five cross-disciplinary/cross-faculty courses, each raising a grand challenge at the science-society interface (e.g. climate change, global health, compartmentalisation of knowledge, human consciousness, etc.). The educational design, in part developed by Karlsen, facilitates learning, communication and critical reflection across the many academic cultures and scientific disciplines. Central learning outcomes include the ability to recognise, appreciate and criticise different scientific styles of reasoning and disciplinary (self) interpretations, significations and representations in face of commonly shared questions, academic values and societal challenges.
