PhD - Isotope fractionation

Updated: 6 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 15 Mar 2020

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.
