Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) has open PhD position in Multiphase atmospheric chemistry for projects.
Tasks and responsibilities:
- Photochemical processes in aqueous atmospheric aerosol particles are important for their overall burden and life-time as well as for the gas phase composition and the atmospheric oxidation capacity.
- The selected candidate will use state of the art techniques in trace gas sensing but also techniques available at PSI’s large research facilities, such as X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
- The selected candidate will investigate feedbacks between transition metal induced peroxy radical chemistry with nitrogen oxides, halogen compounds and the organic compounds in proxies of aqueous aerosol particles.
- The selected candidate will accompany the experimental activities with modelling tools at various scales including explicit aqueous phase chemistry modelling and incorporation of specific reactions in a larger scale atmospheric chemistry model.
- Applicant should have a Master or equivalent in Physical, or environmental chemistry.
- Applicant should bring interest in molecular scale processes of the atmosphere. You should be motivated to work in an interdisciplinary team.
Submit application online including addresses of referees for the position as a PhD Student (index no. 5601-00).
