The missions of this position are part of the ANR ToxSeaBird project which aims to study the impact of Poly and Perfluoroalkylated pollutants (PFAS) on the physiology (hormones, oxidative stress, telomeres) of marine birds.

As top predators, seabirds are relevant bioindicators of marine pollution.

- Proven experience in biomarker and PFAS pollutant assays
- Proven experience in fieldwork on marine birds, blood sampling, logging
- Very good knowledge of ecotoxicology, ecophysiology, ecology of seabirds
- Excellent writing skills for scientific publications and communication
- Autonomy, strong interest in scientific research and teamwork.
