Postdoc position in single particle mass spectrometry at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany

 

Job description:

This position is an integral part of a 2 year project to develop, characterize, and deploy a quantitative single particle mass spectrometer for the analysis of atmospheric aerosol particles and ice residuals. High-energy laser pulses will be coupled to a new single particle mass spectrometer to explore complete atomization for subsequent quantitative analysis.

The work involves rebuilding the already available single particle mass spectrometer, setup and modification of the high energy-laser, determination of performance parameters and calibration factors using laboratory generated particles, adaptation of the data acquisition software, and test applications in the laboratory and the AIDA cloud chamber.

 

Qualification:

A PhD in chemistry, physics, or a related scientific field is a prerequisite for this position. Experience in laser and optical spectroscopy and/or mass spectrometry is highly desirable, as well as knowledge in programming.

 

Salary:

The remuneration occurs on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service in TV-L in Germany, E13.

 

Institute:

Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research, Atmospheric Aerosol Research (IMK-AAF)

 

Contract duration:

2 years

 

Application until: 15.05.2015

 

Contact person: Claudia Mohr, claudia.mohr2@kit.edu
