PhD Student position in Switzerland on Particulate Matter
For the Laboratory of Atmospheric Chemistry at the Paul Scherrer Institute we 
are looking for a PhD Student in Chemical Composition of Particulate Matter.

In the EU project ACTRIS (Aerosols, Clouds, and Trace gases Research 
InfraStructure Network) you will perform measurements with an aerosol mass 
spectrometer to continuously monitor ammonium, nitrate, sulfate, and the 
organic mass during one year. Additional responsibilities include the 
measurements of black carbon. In an initial phase, the instrument needs to be 
tested and eventually improved for the use at high altitude. Using advanced 
statistical methods, backward trajectory analyses, the sources and the aging of 
the organics shall be studied. A multi-disciplinary analysis approach including 
chemistry and meteorology. Additional measurements will be performed in 
parallel at more than 10 sites in Europe allowing for comparisons and 
integration of data to a bigger picture. Intensive collaborations with many 
teams in Europe will be crucial for the success of the project.
