The position is part of our research on natural toxins. Ecosystems and drinking water resources are not only vulnerable towards anthropogenic pollutants but also natural toxins. Bioactive compounds produced by aquatic organisms, such as cyanobacteria, are of particular concern since these are waterborne toxins directly released into surface waters. Cyanobacteria produce a diverse mixture of bioactive compounds beyond the well-known microcystins, yet the potential risk of many cyanobacterial metabolites remains mostly unknown.
The Department of Environmental Chemistry (Uchem) of Eawag is offering a position for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Environmental and Analytical Chemistry.
Topic: Natural Toxins
The project is led by Dr Elisabeth Janssen (Uchem) in collaboration with Dr Colette vom Berg (Utox). The period of appointment for the Postdoctoral Researcher is 24 months, earliest starting date is January 2019 or as soon as the position can be adequately filled.
Closing date for applications is 15 November 2018.
