The Simula School for Research and Innovation seeks applicants for 3 *PhD
positions* offered as part of a larger collaborative PhD programme between
Simula, the University of Oslo (UiO), and the University of California, San
Diego (UCSD). This programme has been named SUURPh (the Simula-UiO-UCSD
Research and PhD training programme), and more details can be found on
the programme
home page
<https://www.simula.no/education/educational-partnerships/suurph-programme>,
and on the page for SUURPh applicants
<https://www.simula.no/education/educational-partnerships/suurph/suurph-applications>
.

Detailed descriptions of the projects being offered can be found on
the Projects
Page
<https://www.simula.no/education/educational-partnerships/suurph/available-suurph-projects>.
Each project will require slightly different expertise and experience, but
all are within the scope of *computational biology *and medicine. Thus,
Simula and UiO are seeking motivated and independent students from a wide
range of training backgrounds, but particularly with a strong working
knowledge in computational and quantitative sciences to take up these
doctoral fellowships.

The duration of SUURPh doctoral fellowships will be 3 years, and the time
of initiation will vary depending on the project but can be as early as
August 1st 2019. All Simula-based SUURPh fellows will be enrolled as PhD
students at the University of Oslo Mathematics and Natural Sciences
Faculty.

An additional unique feature of the SUURPh programme is that SUURPh fellows
will be required to conduct a portion of their doctoral research in San
Diego. As such, all applicants should be prepared and eager to spend a
portion of their degree (generally 6 months – 1 year) at UCSD.

Applicants are also obligated to meet academic standards for PhD students
at UiO, including receipt of a Master’s Degree by June 30, 2019. The
deadline for applications is April 15, with hiring decisions expected by
mid-June.

Details regarding available projects, application requirements, and the
hiring process can be found through our online application portals (through
Simula
<https://www.simula.no/about/job/simula-school-research-and-innovation-seeks-applicants-3-phd-positions>
or UiO
<https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/166324/phd-fellowships-available-in-computational-science-through-the-suurph-training-programme>).
UiO is separately advertising 4 PhD positions for this programme, and
applicants are welcome to rank projects from both the Simula and UiO
sections during the application process.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to those who may be
interested. If you have any questions, you may direct them to the programme
coordinator Kim McCabe (kimberly at simula.no).

Best,
Kim
