Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Max Planck Institute for Chemistry PhD dissertation project Global Modelling of Trace Substances Tentative title of the thesis: Investigation of atmospheric transport and chemistry of organic pollutants using an Earth System Model Organic pollutants‘ fate and distribution in the environment is strongly influenced by the substance poperties. The accumulation of pollutants in terrestrial and marine food chains is one of the implications hereof (multicompartmental substances). We aim to improve the predictability of fate and distribution of organic pollutants in the environment by means of numeric modelling. The project aims to study the input of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and other anthropogenic organic pollutants into ecosystems using a global atmosphere model, upon adaptation to substance specific aerosol and multicompartment processes. Atmospheric transport statistics will be analysed under various scenarios of emissions and climate change with a focus on high latitudes. The model has been applied for similar studies previously. The project work has multidisciplinary aspects (scientific programming, chemistry and geo-sciences) and stands in the context of environmental management and policy making. The project will be integrated into the International Max Planck Research School for Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. The doctoral thesis may be written in English or German. Requirements: Applicants should have obtained a degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in science, mathematics or engineering with a score clearly above average at a school located in the E.U., or at an equivalent institution and should be fluent in English. Experience in a higher programming language (preferably Fortran90/95), in UNIX/Linux and in numerical modelling are advantageous. The Max Planck Society wishes to increase the number of female coworkers, and applications by women are particularly encouraged. The Max Planck Society has set itself the objective of employing more persons with disabilities. Applications from persons with disabilities are expressly encouraged. Applications <http://www.atmosphere.mpg.de/enid/application> can be submitted any time, preferentially before February 29, 2012. Please send your application electronically to Prof. Dr. Gerhard Lammel <email@example.com>, Phone+49-6131-305-233
