The candidate’s expertise should include the accumulation, transport and impact of contaminants (hydrocarbons, pesticides, emerging contaminants, nanoparticles) on the functioning and dynamics of aquatic food webs,
modeling impacts of contaminants on marine ecosystems, application of omic techniques in ecotoxicology, and risk assessment of toxic exposition. The successful candidate should also demonstrate a strong expertise in fieldwork. He/she will be encouraged to develop his/her own research program, and collaborate with biologists, chemists, physicists and geologists from the Institute and the University. He or she must be able to contribute to the M.Sc. and PhD programs through teaching and graduate student supervision. The working language is French, but strong
candidates with another first language will be considered.
The candidate must have a PhD in marine chemistry, ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry or related field with a thesis in ecotoxicology
Candidates must provide a curriculum vitae, a description of their research and teaching statements and the contact information of three referees.
The deadline for application is April 28, 2017. The selected candidate is expected to start in August 2017.
