Exposure to radionuclides (both manmade and natural) represents a potential risk to a number of aquatic invertebrates and vertebrates, due to radiological toxicity as well as chemical toxicity of the metal/element. The toxicity of radionuclides is highly dependent upon uptake via water and feed, distribution and accumulation of radionuclides in organisms, as well as from interactions by other stressors.
The PhD project will be an integrated part of CERAD and the work will be performed in close collaboration with other projects on dynamic transfer and multiple effects, thus offering scientific synergy and stimulating environment to the PhD-candidate. The CERAD consortium provides expertise on different aspects and methodologies, including a large and advanced toolbox for identification of different biological endpoints. The PhD work will also be part of national and international project collaboration.
