Welcome as a new employee at UiB

University of Bergen - At the right place with the right people


Main content

Dear new colleague,

Welcome to the University of Bergen - one of Western Norway's most exciting workplaces!

For a university, people are the most important resource. As an employee, you will hopefully experience that you contribute to the university's vision, which is "Knowledge that shapes society".

The working environment at the university should be stimulating and based on the knowledge and cultural diversity that characterizes us. We shall highlight the pride and opportunities that comes with working at a knowledge institution.

My hope is that you will thrive and develop in an environment that is characterized by high professional ambitions and good colleagues.

Feel free to take a further look at the pages for new employees at UiB. Here we have gathered information we believe may be useful to you as a new employee.

Good luck,

Greetings Rector Margareth Hagen
