Job announcement

KIST Europe Forschungsgesellschaft mbH is established in 1996 and located in Saarbruecken, Germany, as an overseas branch of the KIST in Seoul, Korea. We are seeking for creative and passionate research staffs as below.

□ Senior Researcher

Job Description

[Field 1 : Environmental Safety]

The Environmental safety group contributes to the protection of human health from discharged environmental pollutants including chemicals, microplastics, particulate matter and Nanoparticles etc and provides the basis for improving the welfare of the ecosystem. Direction in our laboratory explores the environmental model organism to study the interplay between in silico and in vitro ecotoxicity studies according to OECD test guideline.

We are seeking professional with experience hazard chemical monitoring and extensive knowledge of alternatives to animal testing.

(1) General toxicity assessments of toxicants can be analyzed by using (bio)indicators e.g. microalgae, Daphnia magna, fish

(2) Toxicological mechanisms can be identified in molecular basis by using in vitro system with specific gene activity & metabolomics

(3) Regulatory relevance on chemical can be applied to predict toxic effects by using in silico methods. e.g. (Q)SAR, Exposure scenario

This individual will work on environmental pollutants-related research projects, including research design, study bio-monitoring and establish adverse outcome pathways. This position offers significant opportunities for professional growth in environmental issues with the international group.

[Field 2 : Biosensor]

The biosensor group contributes to research on human and ecosystem from chemical exposure in the environments.

We are looking for outstanding researchers who will workd and lead mainly on environmental related projects having assessment of materials, sensing methods based on organic chemistry. The ultimated goal of the research is to detect organic compounds and biomarkers in complex aqueous solution with extremely low concentrations, and to develop real-time monitorable sensors. Candidates must have an excellent understanding, and preferably direct experience, of one or more of the following areas: strong background in organic synthesis/functional materials with organic systhesis, electrochemistry or sensors and various data processing methods.
