PRORISK is a European Training Network funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 859891 (MSCA-ETN). The consortium comprises of 18 universities, research institutions, enterprises and partner organisations in 9 European countries and Canada.

About the project:
  • Vision of PRORISK is to provide a unique value by creating a novel platform for training a network of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) in the field of advanced Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA).
  • Applications are open for 15 highly motivated Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with an excellent academic background in Chemistry, Biology or a related discipline who seek an opportunity to conduct research in an international inspiring and collaborative network.

Requirements:

  • The applicants can be of any nationality.
  • At the date of recruitment the applicants for the MSCA fellowship must have no PhD and less than 4 years of full-time equivalent research experience from the award of the degree that entitles them to undertake a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the applicant is to be recruited).
  • The applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of the recruiting institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately before the recruitment date. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
  • The applicants must have a BSc and a MSc or equivalent in Chemistry, Biology or a related discipline.
  • The ESRs are required to spend part of their project period at other institutions in the PRORISK consortium during secondments, as described in each individual project.
  • A good command of English language, with excellent oral and written skills is required.

Available projects:

  • ESR 1 – Underlying physiological mechanisms of interactions between effects of exposure to contaminants and natural stressors
  • ESR 2 – The influence of abiotic factors on exposure
  • ESR 3 – Bridging chemical exposure with effect assessment
  • ESR 4 – Linking metabolic and reproduction disruptions after exposures to novel flame retardants
  • ESR 5 – Linking chemical perturbations of chitin synthesis to developmental disorders in crustaceans
  • ESR 6 – Linking phenotype, developmental and behavioral outcomes to metabolomic pathways in aquatic snails and terrestrial arthropods
  • ESR 7 – Linking physiological, individual and population level effects: AOP on the fish performance biomarkers (swimming capacity, metabolism and energetics)
  • ESR 8 – Linking retinoid and thyroid hormone signaling disruption with adverse effects on early development
  • ESR 9 – Linking individual and community level effects
  • ESR 10 – Linking individual and population level responses to combined effects of contaminants and natural stressors
  • ESR 11 – Exploring the role of soil organisms in relation to ecosystem services and its potential sensitivity to chemical stressors
  • ESR 12 – Translating community change to ecosystem services provision
  • ESR 13 – Ecosystem services and risk assessment
  • ESR 14 – Socio-economic evaluation of the impacts of chemicals on natural
  • ESR 15 – Integrated risk assessment: from exposure through AOPs to ecosystem services
