MEET THE RESEARCHERS
Qin Xin, Professor, Computer Science (China)
"The career perspectives in the Faroe Islands are very good. There are very few researchers in my field with my research experience and achievements, and it took me only one year to advance to Full Professor."
Amanda Vang, PhD, Biomedical Science (USA)
“There is a lot of freedom to come up with a new idea and try it out here. It is harder and more risky because you don´t have the same level of support as you would find at large institutions but it is fulfilling and you have a closer contact to people.”
Ian Salter, PhD, Chemical Oceanography (UK)
"A lot of things are much simpler here, particularly in terms of administration and bureaucracy. The connectivity and integration between research institutes is very high - it is almost like the whole country is one super-institute."
Hans-Georg Beyer, Professor, Energy Engineering (Germany)
"The Faroe Islands are a natural place for research in my special research field which is wind energy."
Morten S. Rishuus, PhD, Geology (Denmark)
"The job presented an opportunity to conduct work founded in research but directed toward industry and governing of natural resources which is new for someone coming from academia."
