New semester (Fall 2022)

The new semester has started, and we welcome all new and returning PhDs, Postdocs and temporary academic staff. We hope that you had a wonderful break and spent some time with your family and friends doing the things you enjoy. 

UiBdoc is a non-profit interest organization for PhDs, postdocs and other temporary scientific staff at the University of Bergen. Just before the summer, we elected a new board that will run the organization in this academic year 2022/2023.

We are now getting ready for the semester ahead and want to invite you to the following events in September:

  • September 4th, Sunday hike with UiBdoc/NHHdoc

The first event of the semester is a hike to Fløyen. We will meet up at 12:00 at the Fløibanen entrance and start the hike at 12:15. We are planning to do a hike every first Sunday of the month. We will be joined by the group from the Norwegian School of Economics, NHHdoc. Check out the event on facebook here.

  • September 15th, Payday drinks UiBdoc + NHHdoc

Join us for a drink, reconnect with your colleagues or get to know someone new while celebrating getting paid. Time and location coming up soon on our facebook page

Save the date! The Academy for Young Researchers, NHHdoc and UiBdoc welcome you to Young Researchers’ Night in Bergen. This is a networking event for young researchers and is a part of “Forskningsdagene.”

In addition, we would like to forward the invitation to the Forsker Grand Prix 2022 (September 28th). Our very own Rafael Rosales (Vice President) will be competing in Research Grand Prix 2022. Here, 10 PhD Candidates from the Bergen area have 4 minutes to present their research to an audience and panel of judges in an engaging manner. This year’s Forsker Grand Prix will be at Mimes Brønn, Høgskulen på Vestlandet (auditorium with bar).

Do you have any suggestions (social activities, workshops, panel discussions, etc.) for other events? Please write us an email (

We look forward to an inspiring academic year and seeing as many of you as possible in the weeks and months ahead!
