The Man Technology Environment Research Centre (MTM) at Örebro University focuses on applied research on chemical compounds of different origin in the environment and their relations to sustainable development. Recently the Environmental Forensic (EnForce) Laboratory was established which is a new research effort for a non-toxic environment funded by the Knowledge Foundation research profile program in collaboration with ten industrial partners and the Swedish Toxicology Sciences Research Center (Swetox).

Örebro University is currently offering research study opportunities on the programme specified above. For the successful candidate, the programme will conclude with the award of the Degree of Licentiate. The start date of the programme is in the fall 2018.

The candidate will participate in a project with focus on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) to study the environmental fate and transport of novel and some previously overlooked PFASs; and to evaluate how much of these that can account for the unidentified fraction of total organofluorine in environmental samples. Specific tasks include i) developing and refining analytical methods to measure novel and previously overlooked PFASs in different environmental samples; and ii) to conduct lab-scale experiments to study the environmental fate and transport of these chemicals. The successful candidate should demonstrate knowledge in organic analytical chemistry and mass spectrometric analysis. Experience with PFAS-analysis and combustion ion chromatography, as well as working in an interdisciplinary research environment are valuable merits.
