Research Fellow in Air Pollution / Atmospheric Science

University of Birmingham


Sources and Emissions of Air Pollutants in Beijing (AIRPOLL-Beijing)


Beijing is one of the world’s most polluted cities and research to elucidate the causes and effects of its air pollution problems is a very high priority.  Consequently, the Natural Environment Research Council has funded a suite of projects under the heading of “Atmospheric Pollution and Human Health in a Chinese Megacity” with a view to generating both a better understanding of the air pollution phenomena in Beijing and the options for mitigation. The University of Birmingham is playing a major role in this research and leads a project on “Sources and Emissions of Air Pollutants in Beijing (AIRPOLL-Beijing)” which will support a range of measurement and modelling activities conducted by UK research groups in collaboration with Chinese partner institutions.


Applications are invited for a 30 month Postdoctoral Research Fellow post to participate in measurement campaigns in Beijing and to carry out chemical analyses of a wide range of constituents of airborne particulate matter for subsequent use in receptor models. These studies will interface with other groups carrying out parallel air quality measurements, studies of air pollutant fluxes and development and application of numerical air quality models.  Applicants should have a first degree in a science discipline and relevant postgraduate research experience, preferably involving trace chemical analysis.  The postholder will join a very active team in atmospheric science at the University of Birmingham and will collaborate with leading UK and Chinese researchers within this field.


Informal enquiries should be directed to Professor Roy Harrison (
