A study was conducted of research supervision at the Geophysical Institute of the University of Bergen by means of two separate group interviews: one with 7 of the 26 Ph.D.students, and one with 3 of the 16 full-time permanent teaching staff. Both groups were asked to comment on recruitment of student researchers, on the supervision process, on how problems in the supervisor-student relationship were tackled, and on how the supervision process affected the students’ career plans. A Ph.D. student often has a supervising team, and the type of supervision varies according to the stage which the student has reached in the research project and the specific tasks involved (e.g. fieldwork). GFI has recently established an evaluation program for education of researchers, and the Ph.D. students place great value on the establishment of a “Ph.D. forum” where they can exchange views with each other as well as with staff members.
