Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Microbiology

The Department of Environmental Science is one of the biggest departments at the Faculty of Science. The department is divided into four units with more than 190 researchers, teachers, doctoral students and technical/administrative staff from over 30 countries.

The project is a collaboration between ACES, the Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences (DEEP) and The Baltic Sea Centre (BSC). It will be embedded within the new Stockholm University Center for Circular and Sustainable Systems (SUCCeSS). The vision of SUCCeSS is to lead and promote research on circular and sustainable systems to drive the transformation towards a sustainable society.

Project description
The position will be associated with the interdisciplinary project “Safe Water Reuse in a Changing Environment – Microbial Degradation of Contaminants in European Rivers”. Increasing water reuse is at the heart of Europe’s climate change adaptation strategy to counter water scarcity. Sustainable and safe reuse is hampered by a complex mixture of contaminants that reach recipient waters due to their incomplete elimination in sewage treatment plants. Very little is known about their fate in the environment and the self-purification capacities of natural systems.

The project will combine molecular, chemical analytical and biogeochemical tools to generate and link knowledge on the interplay of microbial communities, carbon cycling and contaminant biodegradation in the aquatic environment – which is a crucial prerequisite for safe and sustainable reuse.

The goals of the project are:
1) To assess and link in situ microbial diversity, degradation of polar organic contaminants and organic matter quality in European river systems.

2) To link microbial transcriptional activity with degradation rates of model contaminants and organic matter quality in experimental bioassays.

3) Establish proxies and use output from existing models of organic carbon sources and fate in limnic systems to predict present and future degradation rates in rivers.

Molecular analysis will be performed at DEEP, chemical analyses at ACES, and biogeochemical analyses at BSC. These environments will offer the successful applicant ample opportunities for scientific diversification. As part of a young team supported by senior academics, you will have access to rich mentoring resources.

Main responsibilities
The position involves research including experimental design to meet the scientific goals of the project. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to plan, conduct, interpret and communicate research and results and should have a strong interest in interdisciplinary collaborative work.

The focus will be on environmental microbiology, including field sampling and experimental work, molecular laboratory work, data analysis, and writing of scientific manuscripts. Established methods for carbon and contaminant analyses will be applied.

As part of the project the candidate will be expected to work in small teams at sampling sites across Europe (including Italy, Germany and Sweden).

Qualification requirements
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.

Assessment criteria
The degree must have been completed at latest before the employment decision is made, but no more than three years before the closing date. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances. Special reasons refer to sick leave, parental leave, elected positions in trade unions, service in the total defense, or other similar circumstances as well as clinical attachment or service/assignments relevant to the subject area.

In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills in relevant areas for the position. The successful postdoc candidate is expected to have experience in environmental microbiology, including DNA extraction, PCR, preferably next generation sequencing library preparation, and knowledge of analyzing 16S rRNA gene amplicon data.

It is an asset if the candidate has research skills in mass spectrometry and analytical chemistry, knowledge on carbon cycling in aquatic ecosystems, and has previously participated in field work, including water and sediment sampling.

Terms of employment
The position involves full-time employment for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years, with the possibility of extension under special circumstances. Start date November 1 2022 or as per agreement.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.

PhD student in Physical Geography: Coupled hydromechanical modelling of fractures in bedrock

Project description
The doctoral research will be conducted within the framework of a project on modelling coupled hydromechanical analysis of rock stress, permeability and transmissivity changes caused by tunnel excavation in heterogeneous discrete fracture networks for quantification of groundwater leakage. Groundwater flow in crystalline rock occurs through fractures and deformation zones. Understanding these flows and how they change subject to excavation is important for assessing environmental impacts. This project will study changes in the stress field in the excavation disturbed zone and how that impacts fracture aperture and permeability as well as the effects it has on groundwater flow in the surrounding rock. Specifically, the focus is on adopting numerical discrete fracture network models for hydromechanical coupling at multple scales from single fractures to complex networks, and linking model analysis with lab and field data.

Qualification requirements
In order to meet the general entry requirements, the applicant must have completed a second-cycle degree, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits, of which 60 credits must be in the second cycle, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge in Sweden or elsewhere.

In order to meet the specific entry requirements, and to fulfil the general syllabus for doctoral studies in the field of physical geography, the candidate for this position should have acquired a total of 240 higher education credits (of which at least 60 at advanced level), or acquired in some alternative fashion, the equivalent knowledge in geoscience, environmental science or other relevant natural or engineering science. The qualification requirements must be met by the deadline for applications.

Selection
The selection among eligible candidates will be based on their capacity to benefit from doctoral training. The following criteria will be used to assess this capacity: The candidates’ documented knowledge of research in the field of flow in rock fractures, numerical modelling of flow in rough-surfaced fractures, application of combined numerical and experimental methods, and geostatistical analysis of heterogeneous systems. Additional assessment criteria include written and oral proficiency in English, the capacity for analytical thinking, creativity, initiative, independence, and ability to collaborate. The assessment will be based on previous experience and grades, the quality of the degree project, experience in conducting and communicating research, references, interviews, and the candidate’s written motivation for applying to the position.
