Scientific Assistant (Doctoral position) in Atmospheric Physics
Thema: Airborne measurement and interpretation of peroxy radical concentrations 
in the Asian free troposphere with a focus on oxidation mechanisms in the upper 
troposphere/lower stratosphere
Position: PhD student E13 TV-L (50%)
Duration: 3 years to begin immediatly
Project description:
Knowledge about peroxy radical concentrations is essential for improving our 
understanding of the oxidative capacity of the troposphere. These very reactive 
trace gases play an important role in the production and depletion of 
tropospheric ozone.
The Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing (IUP/IFE), University 
of Bremen (http:// www.iup.uni-bremen.de<http://%20www.iup.uni-bremen.de/>), 
has a long standing experience in the development of measurement methods of the 
measurement of trace gases and in the investigation of the role of peroxy 
radicals in the mechanisms of formation and depletion of ozone in the 
troposphere.
Within the HALO- SPP (DFG Schwerpunktprogramm 1294: Atmosphärenforschung mit 
dem For­schungs­flugzeug HALO http://www.halo.dlr.de/) a new airborne 
instrument based on laser spectroscopy (PeRCEAS: Peroxy Radical Chemical 
Enhancement and Absorption Spectrometer) was developed and characterised for 
the measurement of peroxy radicals. PeRCEAS will participate in the measurement 
campaign of the HALO scientific mission OMO (Oxidation mechanisms observations 
in the extratropical free troposphere) in Asia in summer 2015. One of the 
scientific objectives is the investigation of convective processes in the 
budget of reactive oxidative species in upper tropospheric layers.
The IUP/IFE is seeking a suitable candidate for the participation in the 
deployment of the instrument in testing and campaign flights, the data 
interpretation and the publication of results.
Requirements

  *   Successful diploma/masters in physics, chemistry or related disciplines
  *   Experience in lab and/or field measurements
  *   Working knowledge of data acquisition and validation software (DTVee, 
Matlab or similar) are desirable
  *   Working knowledge of atmospheric physics and chemistry and electronics is 
advantageous
  *   Applicants should preferably have a very good knowledge of English. 
Knowledge of the German language is advantageous

The University of Bremen wishes to increase the number of female scientists and 
applications from women are therefore particularly encouraged.
