For a position as a PhD Candidate, the goal is a completed doctoral education up to an obtained doctoral degree. The PhD programme consists of a three-year full-time study and one year of teaching duties.
New challenges to environmental analytical chemistry have been rising rapidly. Over 350 000 chemicals and mixtures of chemicals have been registered for production and use, 93% of which are organic chemicals. The cocktail effects of chemical toxicity, correlations with epidemic diseases in populations, side effects on biodiversity, and so on require a comprehensive analysis of a broad range of chemicals.
We are seeking a PhD student, who will develop a multi-residual methodology, from sample preparation to instrumental analysis (target, suspect, non-target approaches) and data evaluation, for chemical identification and screening in miscellaneous environmental matrices. The developed methodology will then be implemented to samples associated with e.g., marine sediments from the seven oceanic bodies of water, with aims to investigate current status of chemical usage, and to identify emerging pollutants of long-range transport and bioaccumulation concerns.
