PhD in Atmospheric chemistry
Type of employment: Fixed-term employment, 4 Years
Professor Mattias Hallquist, Atmospheric science, University of Gothenburg
Co-supervisor Adj. Professor Thomas Mentel, Forschungszentrum Juelich
Specific subject description
The PhD student will primarily work with our new High-Resolution Chemical Ionisation ToF-MS (HR-CI-ToF-MS) with a special designed inlet to identify and quantify organic molecules both in the gas and particle phase. This is a novel method that is rapidly growing in importance within atmospheric chemistry. The use of HR-CI-ToF-MS has also many applications outside the field of atmospheric chemistry making an expert in this field very attractive for further challenges.
The qualifications for education on a doctoral level are: degree in advanced level, at least 240 university points, of which 60 are on an advanced level, or in an other way acquired similar knowledge.
Third cycle education aims to lead to a Ph.D. in Natural sciences or natural sciences with a specialisation in Chemistry. Ph.D studies comprises four years at the post graduate level. The time period can be extended to 5 years in total through teaching and/or other departmental duties.

The research group
Our atmospheric science constellation is unique in Sweden in that it takes a molecular approach to transport and reaction processes in the atmosphere. A unifying focus is the study of aerosols, with activities ranging from fundamental studies of chemical reactions on the molecular level, to applied work including field studies of atmospheric processes, their importance to current climate and air quality research. The research contributes to developments in the fields of colloidal chemistry, nanotechnology, medicine as well as development of traffic related chemistry and sustainable development in developing countries.
