Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry
University of Birmingham 

NERC "Integrated Chemistry of Ozone in the Atmosphere" project, working with Dr 
W Bloss
3 year fixed term contract

Tropospheric ozone is an important secondary pollutant, harmful to human 
health, ecosystems and materials, an important greenhouse gas and precursor to 
oxidants such as OH.  Quantitative understanding of the chemical production of 
ozone in the atmosphere is critical to predicting current and future 
atmospheric composition, and to development of effective policies for future 
air quality improvements. The aim of this project is to develop and deploy a 
new instrument for the in situ measurement of atmospheric chemical ozone 
production in the boundary layer. The project will comprise instrument 
development in Birmingham, laboratory and simulation chamber validation tests, 
and field measurements in contrasting locations in the UK and Southern Germany, 
followed by interpretation of the data obtained. The project is a collaboration 
with the Universities of Leeds (Prof DE Heard) and UEA (Dr C Reeves), who will 
deploy supporting instrumentation during the field observations.  In addition, 
it is likely that the successful applicant will have opportunities to 
participate in other research projects within the group, and to contribute to 
the supervision of PhD and MSc students in related areas.
