The Digital Life Norway Research School (DLNRS) is part of the Centre for Digital Life Norway, a national centre for biotechnology, research, and innovation. The Centre and the Research School are results of the Research Council of Norway’s strategic priority: "Digital life - convergence of innovation".
Digital biotechnology is the use of digital tools on biological datasets in order to extract and process information, with a diverse range of application areas such as systems biology, mathematical modelling and prediction of biological systems, bioinformatics on high throughput ‘omics’ data, physiological data from medical imaging technologies, sensor technologies, screening and bioprospecting, use of patient- or health-register data, and production data from e.g. biological pharmaceuticals, food, or fish farming. Developing digital biotechnology will be achieved through a transdisciplinary approach, including contributions from humanities and social sciences. DLN will incorporate responsible research and innovation (RRI) in its activity.
Excellent researcher training and networking in the DLNRS will be a main success factor for the entire Digital Life mission and the DLN Centre. Science based on convergence in line with the Digital Life mission is challenging, intellectually as well as culturally. It requires that talented PhD students and postdocs are given opportunities to explore new horizons and embark on challenging scientific and societal problems. The PhD students and postdocs will meet the intellectual challenge of scientific work in true transdisciplinary research groups, integrating knowledge across boundaries.
The DLN Research School will have many offers for our members that will help create opportunities for promoting transdisciplinary integration, building a culture for innovation, and creating a new collective team spirit among all younger scientists who are connected to the Digital Life initiative.
The research school will also have offers for PhD supervisors, course organizers and group leaders.
