Text: PhD Student Chemical analysis of organics in snow and aerosol samples Your tasks Organic aerosols form 20-70% of today’s fine particulate matter. To determine long-term concentration and composition changes, molecular organic aerosol markers are analysed in glacier ice cores. However, their preservation in glacier ice is not well understood. You will investigate the stability and potential contamination of molecular markers in snow and ice through analysis of snow pit and simultaneous long-term atmospheric aerosol samples from the same site using state-of-the-art high-resolution organic mass spectrometry. Your profile Master or equivalent degree in chemistry or environmental sciences Strong interest in experimental work in an interdisciplinary team Good written and oral communication skills in English Experience with organic mass spectrometry is considered as a plus We offer Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration.
