About the employer:

·        Aarhus University offers an inspiring education and research 
environment for 44,500 students and 11,500 members of staff, ensuring results 
of a high international standard. The budgeted turnover for 2015 amounts to DKK 
6.2 billion. The university's strategy and development contract are available 

·        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

·        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,
