2 Early Stage Reseacher Positions, York, UK


Fera Science Ltd have looking to fill two Early Stage Researcher positions working as part of the NaToxAq project. 

NaToxAq is a multidisciplinary European Training Network (ETN) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 722493 and comprises 21 leading universities, research institutions/agencies, and water enterprises in 7 European countries, which aim to expand insight on natural toxin identity, analysis, fate, dissipation, removal during water treatment, health effects, and risk assessment under the impact of climate change, to ensure safe and healthy waters for European consumers. Further information on the NaToxAq project and consortium partners can be found at: www.natoxaq.eu.

The posts are full-time research positions (approx. 18 months) and will be based at Fera Science Ltd, located just outside of York, UK.  The first position will involve the development of maps of land cover related to toxin production/fate.  The second position involves the further development of an existing natural toxin database, and while not explicitly spatial will be expected to closely collaborate with the Land Cover position.

To be eligible, applicants for Early-Stage Researcher fellowships must have no PhD and less than 4 years full-time equivalent research experience from the award of the degree which entitles them to undertake a doctorate. Applicants can be any nationality, but they must comply with the eligibility requirements for Marie Skłodowska Curie Fellowships.
