Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Dres­den - Faculty of Envi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Depart­ment of Hydro Sci­en­ces, Insti­tute of Water Che­mi­stry

The TU Dres­den is one of ele­ven Ger­man uni­ver­si­ties that were iden­ti­fied as an “excel­lence uni­ver­sity”. TUD has about 36.500 stu­dents and almost 5319 employees, 507 pro­fes­sors among them, and, thus, is the lar­gest uni­ver­sity in Sax­ony, today.

Having been com­mit­ted to sci­en­ces and the engi­nee­ring before the reuni­fi­ca­tion of Ger­many, TU Dres­den now is a multi-disci­pline uni­ver­sity, also offe­ring huma­nities and social sci­en­ces as well as medi­cine.

Work­ing field:

Using pas­sive dosing to estab­lish and main­tain sta­ble expo­sure in test; per­forming chro­nic Daph­nia magna tes; extrac­ting hydro­pho­bic pol­lut­ants from water/ani­mal tis­sue; ana­ly­sis of data and inter­pre­ta­tion of results, super­vi­sion of M.Sc. and BA stu­dents; pre­sen­ta­tion of results at inter­na­tio­nal con­fe­ren­ces, pre­pa­ra­tion of publi­ca­ti­ons in inter­na­tio­nal high-ran­ked jour­nals.


uni­ver­sity degree (M.Sc.) in che­mi­stry, envi­ron­men­tal sci­ence or rela­ted disci­pli­nes; Excel­lent track record; labo­ra­tory expe­ri­ence (know­ledge of LC/MS or GC/MS); high moti­va­tion and inte­rest in sci­en­ti­fic work; excel­lent com­mand of Eng­lish (Ger­man would be an advan­tage).

What we of­fer:

Short pro­ject descrip­tion: The amount of che­mi­cals released into the envi­ron­ment grows at stag­ge­ring pace impac­ting water qua­lity, bio­di­ver­sity and sta­bi­lity of eco­sys­tems to an unfo­re­seen extent. Yet avai­la­bi­lity of data nee­ded for envi­ron­men­tal hazard assess­ment is remar­kably low. The pro­ject App­ly­ing che­mi­cal activity con­cept in che­mi­cal hazard assess­ment aims to re-design cur­rent tes­ting stra­te­gies to increase through­put and decrease sus­cep­ti­bi­lity to expe­ri­men­tal arte­facts by main­tai­ning con­stant sta­ble expo­sure and using exclu­si­vely taxo­no­mi­c­ally lower orga­nisms (water fleas). Simul­ta­ne­ously the infor­ma­tion out­put is enhan­ced by employ­ing che­mi­cal activity con­cept to pro­vide not only indi­ca­tors of toxi­city/bioac­cu­mu­la­tion but also infor­ma­tion on modes of action, trans­for­ma­tion pro­ducts and (a)bio­tic par­ti­tio­ning.

We offer the pos­si­bi­lity to con­duct top level inter­di­sci­pli­nary rese­arch, excel­lent labo­ra­tory faci­li­ties, to inter­na­tio­nal coope­ra­tion net­works, career sup­port and per­so­nal deve­lop­ment opti­ons.
