One-way ticket to Norway

Life can often throw up unexpected opportunities, and last November was just one such example. I received a phone call at work, out the blue, from my former PhD supervisor asking what plans I had for when my contract finished in the new year. At the time things were looking fairly open so was keen to hear what was on offer…

After several more calls and email exchanges we had flights booked to Norway for a short visit of the University of Tromsø, with the prospect of us both starting new positions there. It didn’t take long for us to decide and sign contracts, and by mid-February I was packing up my things in Sheffield and starting the long road trip northwards.
