Vacant positions

All available positions at the University of Bergen.


The University of Bergen has most of its premises concentrated in two areas. Mathematics and natural sciences, social sciences, psychology, the humanities and arts and law are taught at Nygårdshøyden, a mixture of houses, shops and seats of learning. Årstadvollen is the University's "health campus", where dentistry, medicine and health-care lie close to the Haukeland and Haraldsplass university clinics. In Møllendal you will find our new Faculty of Fine Art, Music and design.
