A Post doctoral position in the field of atmospheric chemistry; defining 
unknown reactivity in the ambient air of the Boreal and Arctic environments

22.8.2014
The Air Quality group at the Finnish Meteorological Institute in Helsinki is 
opening a Post Doc position in the field of atmospheric chemistry with the 
focus on experimental work.  
In the project we will study reactivity of the atmosphere and reactive 
compounds, which affect for example on formation of new particles. More 
specific aim is to study seasonality of the OH reactivity and find new 
compounds affecting the reactivity in the boreal forest and Arctic air. For 
measuring OH reactivity, measurement system based on comparative reactivity 
method will be constructed. For identifying and quantifying new compounds, 
online chromatographic methods (GC-MS, MARGA/IC-MS, LC-MS) will be used and 
developed.
Applicant is offered to work with top class instrumentation of the field with 
the experienced senior researchers and to take part in field experiments. The 
work is very variable and challenging, and offers great possibilities for 
developing as a scientist. The group has excellent laboratory facilities, with 
the best online instrumentation for chemical characterization of the 
atmosphere. These resources will be available for the applicant.
We look for a Post Doc interested in measurements of atmospheric organic and/or 
inorganic compounds. We expect the candidate to have demonstrated research 
skills and good publication records. The required education is Ph.D. in 
chemistry, engineering, physics or atmospheric/environmental sciences. The 
applicant is expected to have background in atmospheric research. Knowledge of 
OH reactivity measurements and/or chromatographic methods and technical skills 
will be considered as an advantage. Good skills in written and spoken English 
are required.
The person will be employed for a one year with possible continuation. Full 
length of the project is five years. 
Questions related to the position should be sent to Heidi Hellén 
(heidi.hellen@fmi.fi). Applications should be sent to 
hakemukset.kirjaamo@fmi.fi and as cc to Heidi Hellén (heidi.hellen@fmi.fi) and 
Hannele Hakola (hannele.hakola@fmi.fi) on 12th September 2014 at 12.00 Finnish 
time at the latest.
Applications are expected to include CV, list of publications and one to three 
names of reference persons.
Project is planned to start in autumn 2014.
