The Bioanalytical Toxicology group of RECETOX, Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, and the Marie Skłodowska -Curie Innovative Training Network (MSCA-ITN) project “Best chemical risk assessment professionals for maximum Ecosystem Services benefit (PRORISK)” offer an Early Stage Researcher (PhD Student) position.
This PhD project will focus on (1) characterization of the relation of endocrine disruption via interference with retinoid and thyroid hormone signaling with adverse effects of pollutants on early development (developmental and embryonal toxicity, altered growth or behavior in fish embryo model); (2) exploring the role of selected nuclear receptors signaling in the relevant adverse outcome pathways of prioritized environmental toxicants and mixtures by in vitro and omics-based approaches. The ESR will be employed and enrolled in the doctoral programme of Environmental Health at Masaryk University, Czech Republic. International collaborations and secondments are foreseen namely with Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VUA), Netherlands and DuPont Nutrition& Biosciences, Denmark.
