The budgeted turnover for 2015 amounts to DKK 6.2 billion. The university's strategy and development contract are available at www.au.dk/en<https://www.researchgate.net/go.Deref.html?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.au.dk%2Fen%2F>. · The Department of Environmental Science is a newly established and highly interdisciplinary department under the Faculty of Science and Technology at Aarhus University. The expertise ranges from physics, chemistry, microbiology and mathematical modelling to social science, geography, economics and policy analysis. Currently, about 130 staff and PhD-students are working at the department. Further information may be found at http://www.envs.au.dk · The PhD student will be affiliated with the Section for Atmospheric Modelling. The section conducts research targeted towards an understanding of fundamental atmospheric processes involved in atmospheric transport of air pollution. The section develops and applies local to hemispheric scale air pollution models that integrate with environmental and health impacts, economic considerations and climate changes. The aim is to provide the highest capability in Denmark for research, development, application, teaching and decision support within the area of air pollution modelling and integrated assessment modelling. · The Chemical Engineering Program at Texas A&M University at Qatar was developed in 2003 with the opening of the Branch Campus at Qatar. The Program follows the Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas program and the Diploma are valued as such. We currently have 12 faculty, 6 academic staff, approximately 40 research staff and approximately 30 graduate and 100 undergraduate students within the Department.
