Utrecht university is looking for a strong PhD student or postdoc for following 

Title: Composition of Organic Aerosol during Growth Events

IMAU is looking for a motivated PhD student or Post Doctoral researcher (m/f) 
to study important processes leading to the growth of nanoparticles to fully 
grown aerosols during new particle formation (NPF) events. While there is ample 
evidence that organic vapours provide a large mass fraction, it is not clear 
which physical and/or chemical processes drive the growth. Based on PTR-TOF-MS 
as analytical tool, the successful candidate will set up innovative 
experimental methods to study the chemical composition of particles and 
organics in the gas phase during NPF events. After the initial tests, these 
methods will be applied during field campaigns at different locations in Europe 
as part of larger European projects.

Applicants preferably have excellent experimental skills, theoretical knowledge 
on aerosol physics and/or chemistry (MSc level for PhD candidates, PhD level 
for postdoc candidates), experience with PTR-MS and/or aerosol measurement 
techniques (e.g. AMS, MARGA, PILS), and programming skills in either Phyton, 
IDL, Igor, or Matlab. Good English oral and writing skills are essential.


Deadline of application;
December 1, 2014.
