Combination effects of toxic substances and elements in children and adolescents

Description:

The production/use of chemicals has increased during many decades, resulting in contamination of food and drinking water. The aim of the project is to characterize chemical compound/element mixture exposure of children and adolescents in Sweden, and to elucidate if these mixtures affect child/adolescent health development. Birth weight, thyroid hormones, cholesterol and vaccination antibodies are used as markers of health effects. The project is a collaboration between SLU and the Swedish National Food Agency (NFA) using data from the NFA studies 'Riksmaten' and POPUP. The Riksmaten study is a nation-wide food consumption survey and POPUP is a mother/child cohort. The goal of the project is to identify the most toxic mixtures and the chemicals that are responsible for observed relations with health outcomes. The results will be an important scientific base for risk-limiting decisions taken by authorities that are involved in risk management of PFASs both nationally and internationally.

Apart from required course work, important tasks are handling and processing of data from Riksmaten and POPUP, including chemical exposure and birth outcomes, health biomarkers in blood, food habits, lifestyle, demographics and medical factors. Statistical analyses of associations between chemical mixture exposure and health outcomes of the study participants. Authoring of scientific and popular scientific articles, and communication of results at scientific meetings and to stakeholders are other important tasks.

Qualifications:

MSc in toxicology/nutrition/biomedicine/public health or equivalent education level. Experiences of nutritional/environmental epidemiology or environmental medicine studies are merits, as well as good knowledge about multivariate statistical methods used in epidemiology. Emphasis is placed on personal characteristics such as interpersonal skills, collaborative skills, high motivation and enthusiasm, as well as ability to work both independently and in a team. Documented proficiency in English (both spoken and written) is required. The appointment will be based, among other things, on the applicant´s motivation for the application.
