Global challenges regarding energy and climate change, the environment, health, food safety, technology and renewable solutions, use and conservation of land and natural resources, and development of the bio-economy, requires greater effort. NMBU is well equipped to conduct further research in these fields. NMBU's expertise spans entire value chains and includes both basic and applied research.
On 1 January 2014, the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science and the University of Life Sciences merged and became -NMBU, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. NMBU has 1700 employees and 5200 students, and is currently located on two campuses - Ås, about 30 km south of Oslo, and Adamstuen in Oslo. In 2020, the new research- and education-building for veterinary science will be completed and all of NMBU will then be located at Campus Ås.

The Faculty of Biosciences (www.nmbu.no/en/faculty/biovit) contributes to the development of sustainable agriculture and food production systems through basic and applied research in plants, animals and fish (aquaculture). The Faculty is organised in two departments: Department of Animal and Aquacultural Sciences (IHA) and Department of Plant Sciences (IPV).
IHA is currently inviting applications for a full-time, 3-year postdoctoral fellowship, with possibilities for extension depending on available funding. The position is jointly funded by Foods of Norway, a prestigious Centre for Research-based Innovation, and the project "FeedMileage - Efficient use of feed resources for a sustainable Norwegian food production", funded by the Research Council of Norway and closely tied in with Foods of Norway.
Foods of Norway is hosted by IHA and comprises partners with a broad multidisciplinary expertise from three faculties at NMBU and 18 research and innovation partners from the forestry, aquacultural and agricultural sectors.
FeedMileage aims to improve utilization of national fibre-rich feed resources, increase genetic robustness and improve gut health of the animals. A further goal is to reduce the environmental impact of this production sector through lowered greenhouse gas emissions and reduced nutrient excretion.
The candidate will be mainly associated with work packages 1 and 2 in Foods of Norway that focus on developing novel feed ingredients and upgrading the nutritional value of existing feed ingredients by novel processing technology, and on evaluating the effect of diets based on novel feed ingredients on growth performance and health of farmed fish and monogastric animals.
- Develop novel feed ingredients and upgrade the nutritional value of existing feed ingredients.
- Formulate diets and participate in feed production.
- Design and conduct experiments to assess the impact of novel/functional feeds in Atlantic salmon and other monogastric animals (pigs and broiler chickens) on growth performance and health.
- Processing and statistical analysis of data.
- Generate scientific publications.
Minimum required qualifications
- A doctoral degree in feed or food ingredient processing, animal nutrition, or related discipline.
- Appropriate research experience and training in feed/food ingredient processing and feed technology, and in nutritional experimental design,
