Postdoctoral Researcher on Advanced Characterization of Urban Aerosol Emissions at the Tampere University of Technology, Finland. The collaborative unit for Urban Circular Bioeconomy consists of members from the Chemistry and Bioengineering department and the Physics department at TUT.

The aim of the group is to create a high level scientific research group in the field of energy and eco-efficiency, and especially in bio- and circular economy of urban areas, by strategically bridging five research teams in the fields of molecular biology, bioengineering, energy and environment, biorefining, and aerosol physics.

The position will be placed in the Aerosol Physics Laboratory at the Department of Physics. The strategic aim of Laboratory is to study anthropogenic emissions in a wider context including atmospheric relevance and fate. In line with this, the Laboratory has established a mobile measurement unit and novel emission characterization methods such as HToF-CIMS, PAM chambers and PSM. This is part of the European and national ACTRIS and INAR activities.

The goal is to apply advanced mass spectrometric techniques to secondary aerosol emissions of traffic and energy production, including the effect of alternative fuels and biofuels. This involves detailed, multidisciplinary studies in aerosol process chemistry and phase transitions between the liquid and gas phases in an urban setting. The Postdoctoral Researcher will participate in local and international measurement campaigns studying emission from engines, power production and traffic as well as urban aerosol and air quality.

Major tasks and responsibilities: The tasks will include:

– operational responsibility of HTOF-CIMS instrument in various emission and atmospheric measurement tasks
– education and training of students in the use of the HTOF-CIMS
– developing and applying combustion aerosol measurement methods and techniques
– participation in planning, conducting and reporting of field measurement campaigns
working together with modelling researchers in order to produce experimental datasets for needs of aerosol models 
– actively promote integration of aerosol physics into the research of the new Urban Circular Bioeconomy research unit

Key Requirements: A successful applicant should be highly motivated in experimental science, able to take initiatives and collaborate in the unit. The successful candidate must also hold an applicable doctoral degree and possess the competence to pursue independent scientific work. The candidate must also possess teaching skills to perform the possible educatioal and training duties of the position.

The candidate is expected to:

– be familiar with time-of-flight mass spectrometric methods
– be familiar with state-of-the art experimental aerosol characterization techniques and to possess the skills to process and analyze experimental data 
– be able to integrate his expertise with our research team
– be familiar with common data analysis tools such as MATLAB and IGOR

We will consider it an advantage if the candidate
– is familiar with state-of-the art knowledge of emission related aerosol processes
– has experience in developing and/or applying aerosol instruments for combustion aerosols

Can demonstrate expertise in the following areas:
