Environmental Chemoinformatics (ECO) Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) is a collaborative action of 7 institutions from 5 EU countries (Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Italy).

The primary objective of this ITN is to contribute to the education of environmental chemoinformaticians who will receive an advanced training in both environmental sciences and computational in silico methods.

Description of Marie Curie Fellowship

This Short Term Fellowship (STR) is announced for high throughput screening toxicity in vitro methods for testing of selected chemicals and nano-particles in mixtures.

The fellows of the network are expected to apply their knowledge for the implementation of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) in particular with respect to the replacement, refinement and reduction of animal tests by alternative (in silico and in vitro) methods.
A flexible system of Short Term Fellowships will offer additional targeted training to researchers originally not associated with the network.

Successful candidates start at the next possible timepoint.

Qualifications for the PhD fellowships, Germany
  • Master / diploma in chemistry, biology, biochemistry, geoecology
  • Profound experience in cell culture work
  • Some background in analytical chemistry involving ideally GC-MS and isotope dilution techniques
  • Strong interest in molecular ecotoxicology, particularly also in in-silico screening techniques
  • Interest to work in an interdisciplinary environment involving interactions between chemistry, biology, modelling, and health.
  • Highly motivated for the project, like to work with others, integrate into a team
Formal applications should be exclusively send electronically and should include:
  • Full CV and non German citizenship
  • A statement of motivation (not more than one page)
  • Copies of relevant exams, grades, master thesis work or publications
  • Contact information of two reference persons
