Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD student (m/f)
Polymers have become increasingly important to our every day lives and contribute significantly in our economies. In this project, we work in an international consortium comprising academic and industrial partners to develop an eco-efficient and sustainable production route for high-end polymer precursors. In this context, we are looking for two team-players to work in an interdisciplinary research environment.

Polymers have become increasingly important to our every day lives and contribute significantly in our economies. Here targeted polymer building blocks are associated with critical environmental issues, such as generation of toxic waste, salts, and high energy consumption. In this project, we work in an international consortium comprising academic and industrial partners to develop an eco-efficient and sustainable production route for high-end polymer precursors. In this context, we are looking for two team-players to work in an interdisciplinary research environment.
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD position (m/f): Human exposure to mixtures of organic pollutants
For the new ERC-project CHEMO-RISK (Chemometers as novel tools for an integrative risk assessment framework of mixtures of pollutants), we offer a PhD position focusing on the development of a new non-invasive procedure to study human exposure to organic pollutants.

Non-invasive determination of the human exposure to mixtures of organic environmental pollutants
Closing date for applications:  • Location: Leipzig PhD position (m/f): Partitioning of organic pollutants in seals
For the new ERC-project CHEMO-RISK (Chemometers as novel tools for an integrative risk assessment framework of mixtures of pollutants), we offer a PhD position focusing on the development of a new procedure to study internal exposure and effects of organic pollutants in seals.

Internal exposure, chemical activity and effects of organic pollutants in diverse tissues and blood of marine mammals
