Appearance and interaction of biologically important organic molecules and micronutrient metals in marine ecosystem under environmental stress (AMBIOMERES)

The main aim of the project is to investigate quality and quantity of the seawater organic matter (lipids, acidic polysaccharides and polymeric organic matter containing N catalytic atoms) that is produced in the altering environment. Ecosystem changes that will be followed imply opposite nutritional regimes, oligotrophy and eutrophy, and temperature variations. Further on, this project aims to clarify how variations in the concentrations and forms of these organic substances are reflected in the availability and cycling of micronutrients metals of interest, being Fe, Co, Cu, Zn and Cd.

Calibrations of paleoenvironmental records in (sub)recent tufa

The aim of the study was to compare for the first time environmental records (stable isotope ratios, metal concentrations and radionuclide activities) obtained from the recent tufa with those from ambient water where tufa precipitated for the first time.

Influence of the water mass circulation on spatial and temporal distribution of ecotoxicants in Malo jezero and Veliko jezero lakes of Mljet National Park

The distribution pattern of ecotoxic trace metals Cd, Co, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn in marine lakes (Malo jezero and Veliko jezero), which could be harmful for the water ecosystem biodiversity of the Mljet National Park, will be established

PhD position in the field of ANALYTICAL ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMISTRY at the Division for Marine and Environmental Research to work on the EU project EDA-EMERGE

Rudjer Boskovic Institute is the largest multidisciplinary research institution in Croatia. The biggest IRB unit with more than 100 employees is the Division for Marine and Environmental Research (DMER). DMER is focused on biogeochemical processes in the aquatic environment with a special emphasis on the assessment of anthropogenic impact. DMER offers longstanding expertise in the development of analytical and bioanalytical tools for the study of organic contaminants in the environment, including recently adopted EDA approach. Laboratory facilities include state-of-the-art equipment for sample preparation and subsequent chemical analyses, including LC-QTOF Premier MS-MS, triple quadrupole LC/MS and GC-MS systems, while the ecotoxicology laboratory has all necessary facilities and equipment for miniaturized high-throughput in vitro bioassays.

Development and evaluation of innovative tools to estimate the ecotoxicological impact of low dose pesticide application in agriculture on soil functional microbial biodiversity

The ECOFUN-MICROBIODIV project aimed at developing and evaluating innovative tools to estimate the ecotoxicological impact of low dose pesticides used in agriculture on soil functional microbial biodiversity. It proposed to estimate the impact of sulfonylurea herbicide on soil microbial biodiversity and functioning. This project is based on an interdisciplinary approach conducted at different scale, from the field plot to the greenhouse, to test in corn crop the impact of chemical weeding compared to mechanical.
