[1] Early career award: Det må ha gått maksimalt syv år fra disputasdato til søknadsfristen, dvs. disputasdato i perioden 1.3.2014-1.3.2019. Tidligere disputasdato enn 1.3.2014 kan aksepteres dersom det skyldes fratrekk for lovbestemte permisjoner eller sammenhengende fulltids og/eller deltids sykefravær, som tilsvarer minst åtte ukers fulltidsfravær og som har funnet sted etter disputasdato. Det skal henvises til datoer for slikt fravær. Dokumentasjon vil ev. kunne etterspørres dersom fraværet er hos annen arbeidsgiver enn OUS. Fravær fra forskning for å arbeide med klinisk spesialisering er ikke fratrekksgrunn. Tid brukt til klinisk arbeid/spesialisering teller ikke negativt - komiteen er bevisst forskjellen mellom heltids- og deltidsforskere.


[2] Consider the value and impact of all research outputs (including datasets and software) in addition to research publications, and consider a broad range of impact measures including qualitative indicators of research impact, such as influence on policy and practice (https://sfdora.org/read/)
