Why Join Us?

The Michael Sars Centre is an international community of scientists using advanced technologies to study the unique molecular and cellular biology of marine organisms. We aim to establish, strengthen, and leverage local, national, and international networks through specific activities, including collaborative research, joint training, and scientific exchange. 

As a UNESCO World Heritage City and a European City of Culture nestled between fjords and mountains, Bergen has the ideal combination of nature, culture and exciting urban life year around. The city is an international centre for aquaculture, shipping, the offshore petroleum industry and subsea technology, and a vibrant hub for marine research. Bergen is located in a typical West Norwegian landscape with high mountains, fjords, bays and thousands of small and large islands and skerries. The rich diversity of animals encountered on the Bergen coast effectively complements the in-house aquaculture facilities, thus broadening the scope of research projects that can be implemented at the Centre.

All jobs are open to competition with competence and motivation as essential criteria.
