PhD dissertation project

Global Modelling of Organic Pollutants in the Environment

Tentative title of the thesis:

Investigation of atmospheric transport and chemistry of organic
pollutants using an Earth System Model

Organic pollutants‘ fate and distribution in the environment is strongly
influenced by the substance properties. The accumulation of pollutants
in terrestrial and marine food chains is one of the implications hereof
(multicompartmental substances).

We aim to improve the predictability of global fate and distribution of
long-lived organic pollutants in the environment by means of numeric
modelling. The project focuses on pesticides and polycyclic aromatic
hydrocarbons, their chemical processes and input into ecosystems. The
Earth System model is adapted to substance specific aerosol and
multicompartment processes.

The project work has multidisciplinary aspects (scientific programming,
chemistry and geo-sciences) and stands in the context of environmental
management and policy making.

The project will be integrated into the Max Planck Graduate School. The
doctoral thesis may be written in English or German.


Applicants should have obtained a degree (M.Sc. or equivalent) in
science, mathematics or engineering with a score clearly above average
at a school located in the E.U., or at an equivalent institution and
should be fluent in English. Experience in a higher programming language
(preferably Fortran90/95) and in UNIX/Linux is required. Experience in
numerical modelling is advantageous.

The Max Planck Society wishes to increase the number of female
coworkers, and applications by women are particularly encouraged. The
Max Planck Society has set itself the objective of employing more
persons with disabilities. Applications from persons with disabilities
are expressly encouraged.
