The Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories (WACL) are recruiting a Research Associate to improve our understanding of tropospheric halogen chemistry in marine environments. Over the last decade halogens (I, Br, Cl) have been shown to play an important role in the chemistry of the troposphere especially over the oceans. The inclusion of halogen chemistry into chemical transport models has shown the global and regional significance of this chemistry. However, the representation of this chemistry is fairly simple, with multiphase chemistry implicitly represented by gas phase reactions. In this work, multiphase halogen chemistry will be represented explicitly within the model.
WACL is the largest dedicated atmospheric chemistry facility in the UK and offers unrivalled experimental science capabilities.
The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest and most successful departments at York and are renowned internationally for our research. We strive to provide a working environment that allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and excel. We are proud of our Athena Swan Gold Award.
Funded by a NSF-NERC grant, you will conduct research supervised by Professor Mat Evans, as part of the wider Bermuda boundary Layer Experiment on the Atmospheric Chemistry of Halogens (BLEACH) project with the University of Washington and University of Los Angeles. You will:
Where appropriate you will:
