The Institute of Environmental Physics and Remote Sensing at the University of Bremen is offering - under the condition of job release – at the earliest possible date a
Satellite observations and simulations of
tropospheric halogens in a warming Arctic
The department “Physics and Chemistry of the Atmosphere” of the Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP) of the University of Bremen is among the leading scientific institutions in the area of satellite remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases relevant for climate, air pollution and ozone chemistry. IUP is involved in the DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft) funded Transregio on Artic Amplifications (AC)3 (http://ac3-tr.de/), which investigates the impact of climate change in the Arctic.
The research of the PhD will focus on the role of tropospheric halogens in the warming Arctic. Once released into the lower atmosphere, a process influenced by local weather conditions, halogen compounds deplete ozone. As such, halogens indirectly impact on the radiative properties of the atmosphere and in turn temperature of the Arctic. The PhD will work on the extension, improvement and analysis of long-term halogen satellite data using new higher resolution UV-vis sensors such as Sentinel-5P (3.5x5.5 km2 footprint). The relationship between halogen plumes and sources and drivers at different spatial scales such as young sea ice, leads, meltponds, meso- to synoptic scale weather systems, which are expected to change in a warming climate, will be investigated in collaboration with other (AC)3 partners. Synergistic case studies will involve Lagrangian transport modelling.
The Institute of Environmental Physics offers a stimulating and friendly working atmosphere and excellent working environment. The position is integrated into the national scientific framework of (AC)3 and will be based at the IUP in Bremen. More information on the institute and the DOAS group can be found at www.iup.physik.uni-bremen.de/eng/ and www.doas-bremen.de.
As the University of Bremen intends to increase the proportion of female employees in science, women are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants with a migratory background are highly welcome. Disabled candidates will receive preferred consideration over mainly equally qualified contenders.
