It focuses on fundamental, strategic research into individual organisms, populations, ecological communities and ecosystems. More than 200 staff are employed at three centers as well as the head office. The Centre for Estuarine and Coastal Ecology (CEMO) in Yerseke deals with ecosytems in brackish and salt water and the emphasis at the Centre for Terrestrial Ecology (CTO) in Heteren is put on land-based ecology. The Centre for Limnology (CL) in Nieuwersluis focuses its research on freshwater ecology.
At the Plant Animal Interactions department there is currently a vacancy for the position of: Researcher (vacancy PDI-020028)
For the analysis of European environmental legislation and policy, and the development of integrated policy guidelines aimed at building a coherent European legislation of mining activities.
Function-information: The research is part of EC 5th Framework Project ERMITE (Environmental Regulation of Mine Waters in theEU). The researcher will carry out a critical analysis of the ecological concepts used in the European environmental legislation (e.g. Water Framework Directive, Habitats Directive), and the degree in which these are or could be integrated in the environmental management of the mining sector (e.g. by regulators, industry, public health authorities and regional funds administrators). He/she will liase to other partners that are carrying out a survey of the existing legislation on mining activities (IPTS, Seville, Spain) and a review of the concept of environmental liability and its potential applications to the regulation of mining activities (University of Exeter, UK), with the purpose of developing a common analysis of their data and producing a set of integrated guidelines.
Function-requirements: Experience, preferably a PhD degree, in a field related to environmental sciences, with sound knowledge of aquatic ecology and experience in its application to policy analysis and/or water resources management. Case studies in Spain and the UK will be considered in the analysis, hence good knowledge of Spanish and English will be a significant advantage.
Salary: maximum EUR 3847 gross per month, depending on working experience (scale 11 CAO-OI).
