Young Scientists looking for Ph.D.-positions


Two young scientists recently graduated in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Copenhagen are looking for Ph.D.-positions in the area of atmospheric chemistry and physics. We are willing to travel, but since we want to live together the positions should be in the same town.



Charlotte Stenby

My thesis was in analytical chemistry; developing a method for analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in earthworms using GC/MS. Currently I am working with Prof. Ole John Nielsen at the University of Copenhagen measuring urban aerosols. Besides that I have participated in a Ph.D.-course on Formation and Transformation of Atmospheric Aerosols" held in Finland by Prof. Markku Kulmala.

I have also been a visiting scientist at Ford Research Laboratories, USA doing research with Mads Andersen and Tim Wallington on the kinetics of reactions of HO2 with flourinated aldehydes.



Philipp von Hessberg

I completed my Master of Science in Environmental Chemistry at the University of Copenhagen in October 2003. During the course of my studies I have taken classes in chemistry and related subjects (some maths and physics and quite a bit of biology) at the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, at the University of Copenhagen and at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena. I have been involved in research projects at the University of Copenhagen with Prof. Matthew S, Johnson, at the University of Oslo with Prof. Claus Nielsen and at the synchrotron facility MAX-LAB in Lund.

My Masters thesis describes the construction of a high precision UV spectrometer and measurements of UV absorption spectra of nitrous oxide species of different isotopic composition.

My main interest lies in developing experimental techniques for use in atmospheric chemistry. Even though my research experience is limited to gas phase chemistry I would like to get involved with aerosol research.




We are very much looking forward to hear from you.

Kind regards

Charlotte Stenby and Philipp von Hessberg
