in water quality management - fate and behaviour of pesticides in soil and transport to surface waters

SLU (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences) develops learning and expertise in areas concerning our planet's living natural resources. The Faculty of Natural Resources and Agricultural Sciences is the largest of the four faculties of SLU. Our area of activity covers a wide range of disciplines, spanning over agriculture, food and biotechnology to natural resources, environment and landscape planning.The 18 departments at the faculty are organised in four clusters. Most of the departments and the faculty office are located in Uppsala, 65 km north of Stockholm, but important activities are also carried out in Umeå, Skara, and Grimsö.

SLU announces a vacancy for post-doctoral position in fate and behaviour of pesticides in soil and transport to surface waters Located at the Department of Soil Sciences, Division of Water Quality Management, Uppsala
Research environment: The division of Water Quality Management at the Department of Soil Sciences conducts research on the effects of soil and water management practices on water quality. This includes development of agricultural management practices to reduce losses of nutrients and pesticides to aquatic systems. The division also performs extensive catchment-level monitoring activities in surface water and groundwater. This program generates a comprehensive database of nutrient and pesticide monitoring data from different agricultural regions of Sweden and constitutes a valuable resource to evaluate the relationship between agricultural land use and water quality.

A two-year post-doctoral position is available at the department to conduct research on environmental fate of pesticides at the catchment-level. The work involved in such a position would be the exploration of data generated within the pesticide-monitoring programme as a basis for evaluating pesticide risk assessment tools and for spatially distributed assessment of pesticide exposure and effects of aquatic organisms at the catchment level.

Job description: The successful candidate is expected to work closely with colleagues within a research team at the Department of Soil Sciences, SLU, contributing towards the further reduction of diffuse pollution of pesticides to surface waters. The work will focus on evaluation of risk assessment tools based on pesticide monitoring data and also to assess the various sources of pesticide inputs to facilitate implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive.

Eligibility: Applicants should have a PhD degree or a foreign degree deemed to be equivalent to a doctorate.
