il y a 4j

Your Role

The focus of this PhD project is to characterize the environmental history (pre-industrialization through to present day) and potential exposures in the Minette region, using historical documents and digital history techniques combined with analytical mass spectrometry (HR-MS / MS) and environmental cheminformatics techniques on samples from the region to build bridges between these usually distinct disciplines.

The sampling campaign and strategy will be designed in partnership with two other PhD students in LuxTIME, and the results will be transformed and presented to both scientists and the public in a variety of ways.

The PhD student will be hosted at the Environmental Cheminformatics group at LCSB under supervision of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emma Schymanski but closely collaborate with the other two LuxTIME PhD students working at C2DH and LIST.

All three PhD projects will be framed by a larger group of senior researchers from all three institutions, who will participate in workshops and supervision of the project.

For further information please contact : Assoc. Prof. Dr. Emma Schymanski (emma.schymanski uni.lu).
