The position is part of the European RadoNorm (Managing risk from radon and NORM) project which commenced in 2020 and runs until 2024. The key aim of RadoNorm is to improve assessments of the impacts of radon and NORM exposure of humans and the environment and to provide sound, feasible and applicable solutions for radiation risk reduction.
The Post Doc position will focus on transfer and effects of multiple stressors from NORM (e.g., U, Ra, Po-210), metals and nanoparticles on organisms by characterizing exposure using a combination of radioanalytical as well as micro- and nanoanalytical techniques.
Required academic qualifications
- PhD in a relevant scientific field such as ecotoxicology, analytical chemistry, environmental radioactivity/radioecology or environmental chemistry.
- Competence within analytical and radioanalytical methods for measuring radionuclides and/or metals
- Competence in setting up biotest experiments
The following experiences and skills will be emphasized:
- Experience from work with ionizing radiation or radionuclides.
- Experience from working with radionuclides in the environment.
- Experience from using C. elegans, D. magna and/or mice in biotest experiments.
- Experience with programming and image and data analysis is an advantage.
For candidates without competence within ionizing radiation, the Radiation protection course (KJM350) offered at NMBU will be mandatory
You need to have:
- Good knowledge of the English language – both written and oral
- Good communication skills, both related to the research community and presentations in general
- Enthusiasm and creativity in research
