If you want to make changes in the way xenobiotic organic chemicals are assessed, we offer the possibility to pursue this ambition with a team of highly dedicated environmental chemists and ecotoxicologists. At DTU Sustain you will work at the forefront of science providing solutions to major societal challenges related chemicals, circularity, sustainability, and environmental quality. 

Your overall focus will be to strengthen DTU Sustain’s competences within the areas of PBT and PMT assessments of chemicals. You will work in our section of Circularity & Environmental Impact dealing with experimental approaches to regulatory relevant testing and assessment of the fate and effects of chemicals and materials of emerging concerns. We want to strengthen our focus on PFAS and other persistent organic compounds as well as precursors to these. Your main collaborators will be with academia, public authorities, consultants, and industrial partners in Denmark as well as abroad. 

Responsibilities and qualifications

We expect that you have a strong Danish and/or international platform within both applied science and regulation of chemicals and/or nanomaterials.

Your primary tasks will be to:

  • Develop concepts for screening, identification and regulation of PBT and PMT precursors
  • Interact with authorities at the national and EU level
  • Build up, develop and contribute with new approaches and experimental methods or modeling tools.
  • Contribute to research in the group and with colleagues in the areas of environmental chemistry, ecotoxicology, chemicals regulation, and other related fields 

Experience with the use of (Q)SARs and modelling approaches are beneficial but not a must. 

Though your main obligations will be within research and scientific consultancy, we offer possibilities to participate in teaching and supervison activities at BSc, MSc student and PhD level. 

You must contribute to teaching at the Department. DTU employs two working languages: Danish and English. You are expected to be fluent in at least one of these languages, and in time are expected to master both.
