PhD Student position in Aerosol Physics at the Paul Scherrer Institute in 
Switzerland.

The Laboratory of Atmospheric Chemistry (LAC) studies the effects of emissions 
from energy use on the atmospheric environment. The aerosol research in our 
laboratory involves emission characterization, field campaigns, smog chamber 
studies and long-term measurements at high alpine site Jungfraujoch. 
Atmospheric aerosol particles have an impact on the earth’s climate by their 
interaction with solar radiation and by modification of cloud properties. These 
effects remain the largest source of uncertainty in our current understanding 
of the earth's climate system. Within this project we will investigate to which 
extent galactic cosmic rays influence the formation of new aerosol particles 
(via nucleation) and if they exert an influence on cloud droplet and ice 
crystal formation. Measurements will be conducted at the CLOUD chamber at CERN, 
at the PSI smog chamber and in the field. For this research we are looking for 
a PhD Student.
