PhD studentship at the University of Bristol 

The UK is the world's 11th largest emitter of CO2 and other greenhouse gases 
(GHG). However, the details of where these emissions originate from and which 
sectors of the economy are responsible are poorly understood. PhD applications 
are sought to investigate the sectoral breakdown of the UK's GHG emissions 
using atmospheric measurements from the new DECC network and GAUGE (Greenhouse 
gAs Uk and Global Emissions) consortium. You will work closely with Prof. Simon 
O'Doherty, Dr Matt Rigby, Bristol Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group team 
members and GAUGE collaborators across the UK to measure and better understand 
the UK's contribution to climate change.

We are particularly looking for candidates with an excellent academic 
background in quantitative sciences (2:1 or above). Experience with both 
experimental and theoretical science is desirable. You must be able to work 
well in a team and be highly self-motivated. You will benefit from close 
collaboration with world-leading researchers across the UK and internationally.

Interested candidates should contact Dr Matt Rigby (matt.rigby@bristol.ac.uk) 
and Prof. Simon O'Doherty (s.odoherty@bristol.ac.uk) as soon as possible. 
Formal applications should be made through the School of Chemistry postgraduate 
recruitment website: http://www.bris.ac.uk/chemistry/courses/postgraduate/. UK 
research council eligibility criteria are likely to apply.
