Dear all,

A full-time research professorship in the field of  environmental organic 
chemistry is available within the Earth & Environmental Sciences department 
at KULeuven, Belgium. Please forward the information below to potentially 
interested candidates.

Thanks in advance
Steven Bouillon

There is a full-time academic vacancy in the Group of Science, Engineering 
& Technology, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Department of Earth and 
Environmental Sciences, Division of Soil and Water Management at KU Leuven 
in the area of environmental organic chemistry. We are looking for 
internationally oriented candidates with an excellent research record and 
with educational competence within the field of environmental chemistry.

The research will be embedded in the Division of Soil and Water Management 
where soil and water processes are studied at various scales with 
applications towards environmental quality assessments, C-N-P cycling 
studies, and soil fertility evaluations

The candidate will develop research on the fate or effects of organic 
contaminants in the environment. More specifically, the candidate has to 
develop expertise and tools for the extraction, detection and 
identification of organic contaminants at trace level in environmental 
matrices, e.g. in water, soils, biota and food items. This analytical work 
should be integrated with studies on fate and/or effects in biota, for 
example transport, uptake and biodegradation in the environment. The 
candidate is requested to integrate this research in that of the 
Department, i.e. a multidisciplinary group in earth and environmental 

Teaching assignments in the field of environmental organic chemistry in the 
Master in Environmental Technology will be moderate at the start of the
