Norway has attractive welfare benefits such as sick leave and parental benefits. The hospital and university have a generous pension agreement, and international employees have access to the Norwegian health care system on the same terms as Norwegian citizens.
As an employee at IEMR, the department pays for courses helping integration into Norwegian society. The university offers cheap and nice housing for the first half year, providing new residents time to settle before finding a possible new home.
Furthermore, Norway has a free school system and offers kindergarten to all children, helping parents and families in everyday life. Many of our employees have their children in Oslo International School.
