Welcome to the December issue of EVISA's Speciation Newsletter !

This year we celebrate 20 years of servicing the community with the EVISA web portal. Our newsletter was established at the end of the second year of the EVISA project. Since then we try to inform you about new developments related to speciation analysis including methods, rules and legislation, events and job opportunities. We are glad to have a faithful user community, that is visiting our web portal regularly (more than 100.000 per month) and is following us by receiving our newsletter.  While we tried to make use of the developments on the internet, we stayed away from social media and do not have links to them on our site. This is one of the reasons, our user community is no longer growing, since google and others devalue our service because of formal reasons, including missing links to social media, content formatting and other style topics. Anyhow, our aim is to facilitate the transfer of the knowledge collected within the “Speciation Scientific Community” to potential users. In September this year we have moved the web portal to a new server supporting the HTTPS protocol. We hope that the green padlock which appears on the secured site within your browser can give peace of mind that the EVISA website can be trusted and their information is safe.

The next event of interest for the speciation community is the 2023 European Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry (EWCPS2023), taking place January 29th to February 3rd, 2023 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We thank you all for your interest and your fidelity and we hope that we can meet your expectation also during the next year.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous Year 2023

Your EVISA team

EVISA is keeping you updated with what is going on in speciation analysis. In this section you will find news about the most current research results, about trends, legal issues and information from manufacturers in the field of speciation analysis.

Unfortunately, this month we have not seen any publication related to speciation analysis of general interest. In case that you feel that we missed something, we would be happy to receive a notification. 

With all the links to further information and publications the News archive is a valuable collection of "hot topics" in speciation analysis. We continuously update even former news with new links and information so that all news are actual all the time.

With a list of about 50 current entries EVISA is informing you about interesting events and keeps you updated with their deadlines. By consulting our list of deadlines you won't miss the opportunity for early registration at reduced fee or the chance to submit your contribution in time.

EVISA provides information about open positions for Ph.D. students, PostDocs and permanent staff in the field of speciation. Looking to fill a vacancy or needing a new career challenge? Either way this service is FREE. Many laboratories and research facilities (from Greenland to Crete) have already found their highly educated stuff through this service by EVISA. If you would like to post an open position here, please contact us at info@speciation.net !


Europe: Mercury Biogeochemistry
The EU H2020 programme is financing a Marie-Curie training network on 'mercury biogeochemistry' over the next four years (2020-2023). A total of 15 PhD positions are open throughout Europe on a variety of topics, some including ICPMS or mass spectrometry.



University of Insubria in Como (Italy9: Frontal Chromatography ICP-MS for the speciation analysis of mercury
The research group on trace element speciation at the University of Insubria in Como (Italy) has an open position for a 12 month postdoctoral fellowship related to “Frontal Chromatography ICP-MS for the speciation analysis of mercury”

Lorraine University: Modelling metal binding to environmental humic nanoparticles
The group ‘’Physical Chemistry and Reactivity of Surfaces And interfaces’’ (PhySI) of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Continental Environments (LIEC) at the University of Lorraine has an open position for an 13-Month Postdoctoral fellowship related to "Modelling metal binding to environmental humic nanoparticles: theory and application to data interpretation".



EVISA's directory of scientist is a versatile tool to facilitate contact with scientists in the field of speciation and related sciences. The directory is fully searchable for names, addresses, research topics etc.  You should bookmark this directory as an always up-to-date address book. (In order to hinder SPAM robots for collecting the E-mail accounts, we hide them in a special format).

More than 290 active scientists in the field of speciation analysis already joined the directory. Join this great directory that is extensively linked to all type of other information on this site, such as homepages, conferences and literature.

If your entry is still missing in this directory, please contact us at info@speciation.net.



EVISA provides an easy access to external information. Our database contains more than 2800 links to relevant information from numerous top scientific resources spread over the whole Web. The database is searchable both via full-text and categories such as elements, type of species and type of information. We are permanently updating our links section.

If your web site is missing here, please e-mail your link information to info@speciation.net.
