The Department of Aquatic Sciences and Assessment (www.slu.se/aquatic-sciences ) is working with applied environmental science, with a national responsibility for assessing the condition of Swedish surface waters with respect to water chemistry, pollution and aquatic biota. The department has some 140 employees. The research focuses on geochemical and hydrological processes, aquatic ecology and biodiversity, microcial ecology as well as on environmental chemistry and aquatic ecotoxicology. The department is part of a Soil-Water-Environment cluster, a competence centre for landscape-level processes that also includes the Departments of ‘Soil and Environment’ and ‘Energy and Technology’. The breadth of expertise among the 300 members in combination with a well-equipped infrastructure creates a unique platform for high quality research as well as environmental monitoring and assessment.

We are seeking a university-trained laboratory engineer for preparation of environmental samples (water, biota, sediment, etc.) using solid phase and other extraction methods for chemical analysis of organic environmental pollutants (e.g., PFAS, pharmaceuticals) at trace levels. The duties also include various kinds of practical support to research and educational activities, such as organizing and participating in sampling campaigns, organizing and maintaining order in laboratories and associated spaces, overall support in chemical analyses and support to master and PhD students and guest researchers.
Applicants must have a bachelor's or master's degree in chemistry or equivalent, preferably with a focus on environmental/analytical chemistry. Experience of laboratory work in environmental organic chemistry is a requirement and experience of sample processing of various matrices for the analysis of PFAS and pharmaceuticals at trace level is merited. You should also have experience in organizing and planning laboratory work, both your own work and for others. Good language skills in English (oral and written) are required. Emphasis is also placed on personal qualities such as being meticulous, service minded and having organizational and collaborative skills.
