June 2016: Ph.D. position

  • 3-year Ph.D. position in FTIR trace gas measurements on Spitsbergen
  • Salary is according to the German federal employee scale TVL-13 (50%) and this position is limited to a term of 36 months. The position is open from Mai 2016.
  • Work content
  • Ph.D. position: Measurements of atmospheric trace gases using FTIR spectroscopy on Spitsbergen.
  • The Arctic warms faster than the rest of the world. This effect is only poorly understood, i.e. models do not reproduce this strong warming of the Arctic atmosphere. This effect is called the Arctic Amplification. The project AC3 aims at filling the gaps in understanding the special dynamics of the Arctic, in particular to find the ”missing ingredient” causing this enhanced warming. In this position, Measurements of atmospheric trace gases on Spitsbergen in the high Arctic will be taken. The measurements will be interpreted in combination with other observations obtained at the same place.The aim of this project to improve the understanding of the Arctic Atmosphere through a combination of different measurements of different atmospheric parameters and by exploiting synergies they offer.
