Detailed attribution of ozone production to emissions of VOC precursors
The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies e.V. (IASS) is an international, interdisciplinary centre of excellence located in Potsdam, financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and the Federal State of Brandenburg, devoted to promoting science and research for global sustainability, particularly in the areas of climate change, the earth system and the development of social pathways to sustainability.
As part of the IASS program of work, the institute has established a research focus on Air Quality in the context of Global Change, which seeks to identify transformative pathways for the mitigation of poor air quality, globally the single largest environmental risk factor for premature death. IASS researchers actively engage with stakeholders from science and civil society a transdisciplinary agenda-setting process. Current research projects aim to understand the sources of air pollutants and their precursors, their transformation processes in the atmosphere, impacts, and options for mitigation.
To strengthen these efforts, the IASS is looking to fill a
