PhD student in Environmental Science focusing on the Chemical Composition of Arctic Aerosols and Clouds
The position will be associated with the Atmospheric Science unit at ACES. We look at the chemical and physical properties of aerosols, and how these influence cloud properties and thus the climate. The research is experimental, and consists of field experiments and laboratory work. The candidate must therefore be able to travel and stay in the field for several weeks at a time. A focus will be Arctic measurements in Northern Sweden and Svalbard, since Arctic regions are overly vulnerable to climate change. The candidate will use advanced mass spectrometric techniques to investigate the chemical composition of particles, gases and cloud droplets, with the goal to improve our understanding of their mutual influence on our climate system.
