Post-doctoral position for Targeted and none-targeted measurement of organics micropollutants in water using passive sampling approach : Opportunity to transfer these devices towards stakeholders of water quality via EURAXESS

Université de Limoges

Limoges, France 🇫🇷

Offer Description

E2lim at University of Limoges ( is a research laboratory working in the field of water and the environment sciences. One of the 4 research topic aims to improve the measurement of micropollutants in water. Passive samplers are adapted or developed to meet research goals. Compound analysis strategies using liquid chromatography coupled with low and high resolution mass spectrometry are also suitable.
The junior researcher enroled will involved in DEDALS project co-funded by the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region (AAP ESR 2023) and the Ecométrique company ( The research work will be carried out on a laboratory scale but will also involve experimental step in the field (rivers, drinking water supply facilities).
The junior research enrolled as a post-doctoral position will have the mission of adapting and calibrating passive samplers (e.g. POCIS, DGT) for the measurement of organic compounds groups contaminating water resources. These samplers will be tested in a second step in different laboratory or field contexts. To improve the quality of water resources evaluation, the contribution to water resource monitoring of passive sampling coupled with targeted and non-targeted analysis of compounds will be performed. Emphasis will be placed on making data interpretation more reliable. Finally, additional analytical developments may be requested from the junior research enrolled to implement compounds of interest highlighted by non-targeted analysis into existing methods.

In addition, the junior research enrolled will ensure the exploitation and scientific dissemination of the results through the writing of scientific articles and active participation in a scientific conference or technical days. Bibliographic synthesis will be carried out.

Based on the experience acquired with the help of members of the laboratory team, the junior researcher will have to propose a training framework to the transfer the analytical and passive sampling technologies to public and operational stakeholders.
