tax deductions for foreigners (Oslo)

Hi, I have a question pertaining to the tax system in Norway. I have just been offered a position at a university in Tromso, Norway. The university I will be employed at have specified my annual gross salary in their offer but I am not sure how much tax I will have to pay from my gross salary. I have only been told that I will have to contribute %2 of compulsory pension to the public sector fund. I have read somewhere that some university researchers from certain countries are entitled to tax exemption or reduction for the first 2 years of employment but don't know if this is accurate information.
I would appreciate it if anyone had any information regarding tax deductions for foreign nationals.
Cheers!
