I am looking for a postdoctoral assistant to conduct laboratory research into heterogeneous processes of relevance for atmospheric chemistry. The position is available through 2004.

Aerosols, both natural and anthropogenically formed, are ubiquitous in the atmosphere. In spite of recent growing interest in atmospheric aerosol properties, their chemistry is far from being understood at a sufficient level to assess their impacts on health, air quality and climate.

At the interface of physics, chemistry and atmospheric sciences, we perform laboratory research using highly innovative techniques to study interactions of atmospheric trace species with surfaces representative of aerosols. In particular, the work proposed through that position is devoted to the chemistry and photochemistry of organic aerosols.

Applicants should have a background in experimental physical chemistry or physics. Postdoctoral researchers with experience in one or more of kinetics / mass spectrometry / flow tubes / aerosols are encouraged to apply.

Applications should be sent to:
