An STFC-funded PhD studentship is available at the University of
Edinburgh from September 2017 (or soon afterwards) to study the
photochemistry of Mars' atmosphere. In collaboration with
colleagues at the Open University the student will develop the
chemical mechanism in an existing 1-D photochemical sub-model of
the UK Mars General Circulation Model (MGCM) so it can be used to
interpret observed atmospheric variations of methane (CH4) and
non-methane volatile organic compounds (VOCs) within the broader
context of VOC-HOx-NOx-Ox chemistry.
In particular, the student will develop a more comprehensive
chemical mechanism; understand how different emissions and
chemical scenarios might be observed by the NOMAD  and ACS 
instruments aboard the ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO ) using
synthetic experiments; and evaluate the 1-D model using TGO data
as they become available. The revised 1-D sub-model will be
integrated back into the UK MGCM.
This project would best suit a physical sciences student with a
strong quantitative background.
