奥地利维也纳大学环境纳米科学博士后职位

Postdoc Position Environmental Nano-Science

Organisation/Company: University of Vienna

Research Field: Chemistry Environmental science Geosciences

Researcher Profile: Established Researcher (R3) Recognised Researcher (R2)

Application Deadline: 13/03/2022 18:00 - Europe/Athens

Location: Austria › Vienna

Type Of Contract: Temporary

Job Status: Full-time

Hours Per Week: 40

Offer Starting Date: 01/03/2022

Open Postdoc position Nano-Technology/Geochemistry

Department of Environmental Geosciences – EDGE

Center for Microbiology and Environmental System Science

The Department of Environmental Geosciences at the University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, about 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, more than 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position of a postdoc on the topic of Heteroagglomeration of nanomaterials with freshwater suspended particulate matter.

The Department of Environmental Geosciences is a highly experienced and internationally recognized team carrying out research on environmental contaminants, hydrogeology and nanogeosciences.

The (hetero-) agglomeration of manufactured nanomaterials, which is the core topic of the position, is one of the three most relevant transformation processes in the environment: (i) physicochemical transformation, (ii) (hetero-) agglomeration and (iii) dissolution. The heteroagglomeration of nanomaterials with suspended particulate matter changes the transport behavior of the nanoparticles in surface waters and might pose effects on the ecosystem functions of suspended natural matter (flocs), which are micron-sized bioreactors which take part in e.g. nutrient cycling and pollutant degradation. The project in which the candidate will work is one of three sub- projects dealing with the general nanomaterial transformation processes in the environment. The tasks involve the comparison of different floc systems (natural, synthetic and WWTP suspended matter) and their interaction with manufactured nanoparticles, optimization of synthetic floc formation processes, experimental set-ups and analytical techniques. In a final step, those improved methods will be validated and submitted as a proposed guideline to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The outcomes of the project will largely influence the safety testing of nanomaterials in OECD countries.

The researchers of the department are at the forefront of nanoparticle analysis, their behaviourand fate in the natural environment and development of regulatory tools. The department operates a unique, well-equipped infrastructure to investigate nanoparticulate processes and analyse nanoparticles in complex aquatic systems and have access to specialized instrumentation in-house or through intensive collaborations on all levels.

Duration of employment: 2 year/s

Extent of Employment: 40.0 hours/week

Job grading in accordance with collective bargaining agreement: §48 VwGr. B1 lit. b (postdoc) with relevant work experience determining the assignment to a particular salary grade.

We offer:

The support from internationally recognised senior researchers to develop all the skills necessary to complete this project and excellent laboratory facilities

An international working environment (working language is English) with many opportunities for career development (networking, conferences, project meetings etc…)

Vienna, the city with the highest quality of life worldwide (elected for the 10th consecutive time, Mercer, 2019)

Requirements:

Completed PhD degree in a relevant field of science

Background in Environmental Geochemistry, Analytical Chemistry and/or Nanotechnology

Experiences in electron microscopy and/or trace metal analysis

Knowledge in MS Office

High ability to express yourself both orally and in writing

Excellent command of written and spoken English

Ability to work in a team

Desirable qualifications are:

Knowledge in experimental and method development

Knowledge in geochemical modelling (PHREEQC, The Geochemist's Workbench, …)

Experiences in project and time management

Application documents:

A cover letter that describes the motivation for the application

A scientific CV (including a full list of publications and projects)

Contact information for at least two academic references

Applications should be submitted as a single pdf file including scientific CV and the contact details of two referees. Applications should be addressed to environment@univie.ac.at, max. 5 MB.

For questions related to the project, contact Dr. Frank von der Kammer (frank.kammer@univie.ac.at).

The University of Vienna is an equal opportunity employer and intends to increase the number of women on its faculty, particularly in high-level positions, and therefore specifically invites applications by women. Among equally qualified applicants, women will receive preferential consideration.
