The organization offers a professionally exciting environment with numerous challenges and excellent opportunities for professional development including extensive cooperation with sister organisations and university groups. NGU is an equal-opportunity employer and female applicants are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants who do not speak a Scandinavian language will be expected to learn conversational Norwegian within two years (courses are provided).
The candidates will be expected to have an all-round approach to the fields in which they have worked and to have documented their ability to report their data and conclusions. Broad experience in fieldwork is essential. Skills in fields which are important for an understanding of metallogenic provinces, such as structural geology, geochronology and petrology are also important.
