From Gunnar <>
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 10:18:04 +0100

Postdoctoral research fellow in industrial emissions monitoring and
ambient trace gas measurements

A 4-year postdoctoral research fellowship is available at the Department
of Chemistry, University of Oslo, Norway.

We have an immediate opening for a 4-year postdoctoral research fellow
within the Amine Research and Monitoring Project (ARM) with focus on
atmospheric chemistry processes relevant for Technology Center Mongstad
(TCM) and the Mongstad area on the West coast of Norway. The objective
of the project is to provide adequate emissions and ambient impact data
from and near the industrial facility in Mongstad over several years.
Work entails regular instrument maintenance and travel to the field
site, data acquisition, and analysis. In cooperation with TCM,
monitoring data shall provide information on the effectiveness of
different CO2 removal technologies from stack gas, and their short-term
environmental impacts. In addition, the successful applicant will work
with researchers in the Department on exploratory data acquisition and
interpretation using modern time-of-flight mass spectrometry (ToF-MS),
gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS), and Fourier Transform
Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). 75% of time devoted to the project, 25% of
time allocated to own research and further qualification.

We seek a dynamic PhD, preferably with experience in
Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrometry. Applicants should have a
doctoral degree in Physics, Chemistry, Atmospheric Sciences, or similar,
with experience in instrumental analytical chemistry and a general
knowledge of atmospheric chemistry or air quality. The successful
applicant will be creative and innovative with good collaborative
skills, have strong analytical and quantitative skills, experience in
working with large data sets and own programming codes, and interest in
combining data and observations with modeling tools (statistical or
physically based). Applicants must have a regular driver’s license;
excellent English writing and communication skills are required.

Application deadline: 1 February 2012
