Isotope fractionation as a tool for evaluating the behaviour of Cd and Zn in contaminated soils
The use of Cd and Zn isotopes is a powerful and novel tool for tracing the fate of these pollutants in the environment. However, soil with its numerous biogeochemical processes, e.g., sorption onto solid phases, complexation, biological processes etc., acts as a “black box” and their influence on isotope fractionation is thus crucial.
The Environmental and Isotope Geochemistry Group, Faculty of Environmental Sciences, CULS Prague opens PhD positions starting in October 2020.
- Diploma in a relevant discipline (e.g., chemistry, soil science, biology, geochemistry)
- Solid analytical background
- Ability to work in an interdisciplinary team
The PhD project is supported by external grants of the supervisor.
Within the 4 years study period, the PhD students will be rewarded with 17000 - 23000 CZK/month net (680 - 920 EUR), which is sufficient for living in the Czech Republic. The total salary consists of scholarship (fixed) and participation in projects, internal grants, and bonuses (flexible).
Required documents for the application (send to [email protected] by March 15):
- Motivation letter
- Academic letter of recommendation (by your supervisor)
- Diploma + Diploma supplement (Transcript of records)
Please note that this is just a pre-selection. The selected candidate will be invited to submit official application to the Faculty of Environmental Sciences.
