About the job

The National Laboratory for Age Determination (NLD) invites applicants for a position as Associate Professor of radiocarbon dating / Head of the Laboratory.

The National Laboratory is the Norwegian national infrastructure for dating and age reconstruction. It is composed of two main units: accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) and dendrochronology. In addition, there are advanced facilities for stable isotope mass spectrometry (IRMS). The laboratory conducts research in dating methods and their applications. It also offers dating services for research collaborations, internal as well as external users. The three units share the same personnel, and the three analysis methods are well integrated.

NLD is part of Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, more specifically the NTNU University Museum. NTNU University Museum hosts internationally leading research groups covering archaeology, natural history and a strong emphasis on cross-disciplinary topics related to human-environment interactions.


The city of Trondheim is a modern European city with a rich cultural scene, and easy access to breath-taking natural landscapes. The Norwegian welfare state, including healthcare, schools, kindergartens, and overall equality, is probably the best of its kind in the world.

We invite both senior and more junior candidates to apply. This means that candidates at all stages in their career post PhD will be considered in light of their achievements, given their level of seniority and time since PhD dissertation.

You will report to the Museum Director.
