atthe Department of Environmental Science. Closing date: 12 December 2022.
The Department of Environmental Science (ACES) is one of the biggest departments at the Faculty of Science. The department is divided into four units with more than 170 researchers, teachers, doctoral students, and technical/administrative staff from over 30 countries. Research and teaching focuse on chemical contaminants, atmospheric science, biogeochemistry, and (eco)toxicology. As an employee of the Department of Environmental Science, you will be part of a dynamic environment with research in leading research areas and a strong international profile.
The Exposure and Effects Unit has several research groups broadly addressing the hazardous potential of contaminants in biota. Our activities in ecotoxicology include method development to identify and quantify adverse effects, bioassays, monitoring studies, and building models to predict population responses. Integrating laboratory assays, field studies, monitoring and modeling improves our understanding of response mechanisms and adaptation to toxic substances and other stressors, such as climatic factors, eutrophication, hypoxia, and nutrient imbalances.
Main responsibilities The main responsibility is to maintain and supervise laboratory culture facilities for experimental ecotoxicology, and to run these facilities in collaboration with the current needs of the research groups in the unit and the department. Specific responsibilities and expectations include the following:
Qualification requirements We are looking for someone with an MSc or Ph.D. and at least one year of research experience in ecology, ecotoxicology, or similar. The successful candidate must have good practical and theoretical knowledge of bioassays and basic ecotoxicological techniques. In addition, experience in bioassays with algae, Daphnia, and amphipods as well as fieldwork with benthos is desirable. Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities, such as a positive attitude and the ability to work together with students and diverse multidisciplinary staff. Other specific qualifications include:
