Research Post Related to Biomass Burning Emissions and Combustion Chamber Experiments

King's College London wish to appoint a staff member to lead day-to-day operation of the Fire Emissions Testing Chamber (FETCh), a new facility funded primarily by the UK's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to provide a controlled environment in which to study the physical and chemical processes involved with landscape biomass burning and other biomass burning (e.g. woodburning). Techniques applied will include characterisation of gas and aerosols in smoke, alongside IR imaging and spectroscopy of combustion behavior.  FETCh consists of a 2.5 m long ‘burn chamber’ and attached laboratory space, and is located at our collaborators Rothamsted Research (Harpenden) - a rural location around 25-mins train ride from London King’s Cross. A relevant PhD is useful for this role, which will involve a mix of research and technical work, but other experience will be considered. There may also be the opportunity to get involved in field studies in addition to lab work, and applicants willing to work part-time will be considered.  The selected candidate will be expected to lead on some research publications, and contribute to others. Application deadline is 27th June. Further details and application procedure at: https://www.jobs.ac.uk/job/BKJ322/research-associate/
