Postdoc
positions are available at the Environment Research Institute, Shandong
University, China, in the group of Prof. Lin Du. Funded by the National
Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and the national 1000-plan program,
the group is working on aerosol surface chemistry with experimental and
theoretical methods. The group has two postdoc positions and one international
PhD position available in 2017.

Postdoc position
1:

The
successful candidate will investigate the aerosol surface chemistry with
infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy and flow reactors. A PhD in
chemistry or atmospheric/environmental sciences is required. The applicant is
expected to have background in IR spectroscopy and atmospheric research.
Knowledge of heterogeneous reactions or multiphase chemistry in the atmosphere
will be considered as an advantage.

Postdoc
position 2:

The
successful candidate will study the atmospheric surface reactions in a smog
chamber. A PhD in chemistry or atmospheric/environmental sciences is required.
Experience of chamber experiment and measurements with GC-MS, SMPS, etc, is
recommended.

The
