Leibniz-Institut for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS)

3 year PhD position in modeling of secondary organic aerosols

The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) is an
internationally renowned institute in the field of aerosol and cloud
research. Its modeling department is offering a three-year position
for a PhD student (based on TV-L E13, half time) as a contribution to
the interdisciplinary project

Modeling of the Formation of Secondary Organic Aerosols (SOA).

The objective of this project is the development and implementation of
appropriate models for a detailed description of the SOA formation and
the related phase transfer processes in the atmosphere. SOA comprises a
large fraction of submicron particulate matter affecting radiative
climate forcing and human health. Therefore, a good understanding and
representation of the related multiphase processes in atmospheric models
is required for climate as well as air quality applications. Among other
applications, simulation results of the developed model will be compared
with measurements of experiments performed at the TROPOS chamber
facility LEAK.

Candidates should have a university degree in mathematics, meteorology,
physics, or chemical engineering. Ideally, they have a background in
thermodynamics, heterogeneous chemistry or related disciplines.
Applicants should be interested in theoretical problems and be able to
implement appropriate solution approaches in computer programs.
Knowledge of FORTRAN or/and C programming is required. Fluency in
English and the ability to clearly present research results both in
spoken and written form are essential.

We are offering the possibility to work in an interdisciplinary team, at
a renowned atmospheric research institutes and in one of the most
attractive cities in Germany. Among candidates of equal aptitude and
qualifications, preference will be given to a disabled person. TROPOS is
committed to increase the fraction of female scientists and particularly
encourages qualified female applicants to apply.

Please send your application (no later than 1^st February 2013) to:
