Postdoctoral Fellow – Atmosphere-Biosphere Interactions


11 September 2023 - 5 October 2023

The Paul Scherrer Institute is looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow in the newly formed group “Atmosphere- Biosphere-Interactions” in the Laboratory of Atmospheric Chemistry (LAC). The focus of this Postdoctoral Fellow project is a tree harvest that took place in 2022 at the Swedish boreal forest research station Norunda. This harvest provided a unique opportunity to directly observe how volatile organic compounds emitted by the forest change due to harvesting, and how these changes modify formation, properties, and mass loadings of biogenic organic aerosols. The Postdoctoral Fellow project work focuses on mass spectrometer data analysis, interpretation, and modelling of climate impact of forest management practices. This project is in close collaboration with Stockholm University (Dr Radovan Krejci) and Gothenburg University (Dr Cheng Wu). Extended research stays at these institutions are possible.
