IV Training Course on Positive Matrix Factorization on 5‐7th February 2020 at the IDAEA-CSIC

Atmospheric particulate matter (PM) is a complex mixture of particles emitted by multiple sources. Positive Matrix Factorization (PMF) is a widely used receptor model to
perform PM source apportionment studies, identifying main sources of pollution and estimating their contributions to PM concentrations in ambient air.

International experts on receptor models and their applications to environmental sciences will offer a comprehensive training course on the use of USEPA PMF 5 program.

Candidate for PhD Grant to work in the area of Environmental Toxicology at IDAEA Institute

We are seeking a pre-doctoral student to work in the area of Environmental Toxicology. One of the goals of our current research is to study the effects of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) in aquatic organisms at different molecular levels using Systems Biology approaches. This will allow us to better understand the mode of action of EDCs assessing the environmental stress and risks induced by chemical pollutants in both the environment and human health.
