PhD Position in Statistical Ecotoxicology – University of Bayreuth, Germany
The Junior Research Group Statistical Ecotoxicology at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) is seeking to fill a 3-year-PhD position (f/m/d) in statistical ecotoxicology starting as early as possible.
The PhD project aims to better understand toxic effects of different microplastic particles and their associated chemicals and to predict effects for untested species and substances. To this end, both statistical methods and machine learning models will be used to identify trait-trait-combinations associated with particularly toxic (or non-toxic) outcomes.
The project will be conducted in close collaboration with the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 1357 Microplastics.
