Assistant Professor of Ecotoxicology

Roskilde Universitet (RUC)

Department of Science and Environment, Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as assistant professor of Ecotoxicology from 1 October 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is limited to 1 year and 9 months.

Department of Science and Environment is one of four departments at Roskilde University. The Department conducts basic and applied research within medical biology, molecular biology, environmental sciences, chemistry, physics and mathematics. Bachelor and Master programs are offered within these areas.

The position will be part of the Section for Environmental Dynamics. The section comprises at the moment eight professors and associate professors as well as a varying number of PhD-students, postdoc’s., technicians etc. The current members of the group primarily have a background within aquatic ecology, ecotoxicology, ecosystem hydrology and biological production. Your contribution will be to strengthen the research field related to the NanoTransfer project funded by the Villum Foundation and to teach within the fields of ecotoxicology and environmental risk. The focus area of NanoTransfer concerns food-web transfer of metal nanoparticles in the aquatic environment (sediment-benthic-pelagic).
