Degree PhD
Job type Research
Research Area(s) Chemical Oceanography , Pollution , Chemical Oceanography , Pollution
Research Activities conducting researches including the monitoring and studying the different sources of pollution along the Egyptian coast especially heavy metals and the bioaccumulation of metals in plants and fish, Also the risk assessment of the pollutants on marine organism and therefore human health, the remediation of sites contaminated by metals.
Working languages English
Skills/Expertise 1. Experience in assessing the efficiency of the work of sewage treatment plants (primary and secondary treatment). 2. Experience in the work of sequential chemical fractionation of trace elements and heavy metals in the surface sediment and to identify the picture that there is a component of the mineral deposits and the potential to address. And also enrich the accumulation of heavy metals in sediments. 3. Experience in the calculation and the study of the budget of the nutrient salts, and also the pollutants through the expense of both the expected and the actual load concentrations of these elements transmitted by sewage and anthropogenic sources into water bodies and then into the sea. 4. Experience in identifying the chemical composition, metal content, and trace elements necessary for human nutrition in the marine plants that could be used as supplementary food to help meet and the recommended daily requirements of minerals and rare elements necessary for human nutrition.
