Postdoctoral position available at the laboratoire de Météorologie physique

Version imprimable de cet article

A postdoctoral position is available at the Laboratoire de Météorologie Physiques (LaMP/CNRS), at the University Blaise Pascal, Clermont Ferrand, France. The successful candidate will participate in airborne measurements aboard the French research aircraft (ATR-42) within the European FP7 project DACCIWA (Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa, www.dacciwa.eu). The airborne field campaign is planned for June-July 2016, in Togo, West Africa.

The postdoctoral position will involve :

  1. The operation, analysis, and interpretation of aerosol and gas measurements including aerosol number concentration and size distribution (CPC, SMPS), aerosol chemical composition (C-ToF-AMS), and gas-phase measurements.
  2. Combining aerosol measurements with gas-phase measurements to interpret aerosol formation and evolution processes.
  3. Combining aerosol measurements with in-situ cloud microphysics measurements to study aerosol cloud interactions.

The candidate should hold a Ph.D. in environmental science/engineering, chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related discipline. Experience with mass spectrometry and data analysis (Matlab/Python/IGOR) skills are highly desirable. The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable for an additional year based on performance. Ideally we would like the candidate by June 2016. All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply and they should send a CV and names of at least two references to Evelyn Freney.
