We are looking for motivated students who want to work on an exciting new project on sustainability and wild foods in the new UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in Nordhordland.
You will be part of field work where we are conducting ecological assessments to evaluate the potential to supply wild foods in the region. We are conducting mushroom and berry surveys in different habitat types across the municipality of Alver from mid-August until mid-October.

Norsk natur er full av karbon, og det aller meste ligg under bakken. Kaldt og vått klima forsinkar nedbrytninga av daude plantar, dyr og mikroorganismar, og organisk materiale har hopa seg opp sidan siste istid. No endrar klimaet seg, og fleire stadar ser vi at naturen går frå å vere ein karbonfangar til å bli ei klimabombe. Skjer dette også rett utanfor stovedøra vår i Bergen?… Read more →

Do you want to fish guppies in experimental populations? Do you want to see how their life histories respond to fishing-induced selection? Do you want to get hands-on measuring fish and determining their sex and maturation stage?… Read more →
How does livestock management impact biodiversity, ecosystem functions and ecosystem services? How do different grazing regimes on summer dairy farms shape landscape heterogeneity and connectivity and how do they affect pollinator communities?
In this multidisciplinary project we investigate the relationships between human and nature in the scope of developing a sustainable management of land-use and natural resources in the Nordhordland Biosphere area – Norway’s only Biosphere Reserve in UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) programme. Join us if you want practical experience in common field- and lab-methods in applied ecology and to be a part of an ambitious and enthusiastic team!… Read more →
