Study Subject(s): Speciation Analysis and Environmental Tracer Studies of 129 I
Course Level: PhD
Scholarship Provider: Technical university of Denmark,
Scholarship can be taken at: Denmark
-Applicants should have a master degree in chemistry or environmental sciences and documented knowledge and experience with one or more of the following Analytical chemistry, Environmental radioactivity, Environment chemistry, Radiochemistry.
-Previous experience with accelerator mass spectrometry and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry is an asset.
