The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research is part of the Leibniz Association and an internationally renowned institute in the field of aerosol and cloud research. In the Atmospheric Chemistry Department the tropospheric multiphase system is investigated by field measurements and analysis, laboratory studies and multiphase modelling.


In the framework of different projects we are looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students to work on different topics of atmospheric chemistry:


Topics:


· Ozone and its coupling to volatile organic compounds (VOC) as precursor gases: The project includes a literature review on ozone as a re-emerging air pollutant, in-depth data analysis of ozone in the federal state of Saxony, and experimental work with gas-chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) as well as proton-transfer-reaction MS (PTR-MS) to measure VOCs in field campaigns and at our research station Melpitz.


· Modelling of tropospheric heterogeneous chemistry: This project deals with chemical mechanism and numerical model development to improve the treatment of complex gas- and aqueous phase chemistry, as well as heterogeneous reactions on surfaces. A chemical mechanism module will be written based on compiled laboratory data, kinetics and reaction mechanisms, and complex modelling studies will be performed.


· New approaches to study tracers of secondary organic aerosol (SOA): This project will focus on technological and analytical advances to improve our understanding of SOA as one of the most important constituents of atmospheric particles. New sampling and measuring instrumentation will be build, characterized, and applied in the field. The analytical work includes both target and innovative non-target approaches.
