PhD-position available

FWF Project ‘Effect of diet composition on lipid profiles, contaminant
bioaccumulation and somatic growth condition of freshwater fish’
(3 years funding)
A Ph.D. position is available as of May 1 st , 2008, at the ‘WasserCluster - Biologische Station’, a
Interuniversity Research Centre of the University of Vienna, University of Natural Resources and
Applied Life Sciences, and Danube University Krems, Austria. We are seeking a candidate with a
strong background in
É aquatic food web ecology,
É experimental field work experience, and
É knowledge in aquatic ecotoxicology is an asset.
The successful candidate will be expected to investigate trophic dynamics in natural lakes and
aquaculture ponds, and to develop predictive tools how diet composition affects nutrient retention,
contaminant bioaccumulation and overall somatic growth condition of freshwater fish, with
emphasis on common carp (Cyprinus carpio). Candidates should also possess a high degree of
motivation and creativity, excellent written and verbal communication skills and a demonstrated
ability to work in a team environment and interact with a multi-disciplinary team of scientists.
LIPTOX, a research group at the Interuniversity Research Centre WasserCluster
( is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, including GC-MS,
-FID, flow cytometry, fluorescence microscopy, etc., and benefits from other analytical
equipment of the three partner universities.
Candidates should send their CV that includes areas of expertise and research interests, publication
list, and contact information for three references to Ms. Marion Kapuscinski at
