The University of York’s Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories (WACL) wish to recruit a Research Associate to support atmospheric halocarbon and volatile organic compound (VOC) measurements at the Cape Verde Atmospheric Observatory (CVAO), using GC and GC-MS methods, and to lead data analyses and publication of these data sets. The post is available from 1st September 2023 for a period of 36 months.
WACL is the largest dedicated atmospheric chemistry facility in the UK, home to more than 70 researchers with interests in all aspects of atmospheric chemistry. WACL supports an exceptional research environment, providing access to state-of-the-art facilities and a wide range of interdisciplinary expertise.
The Department of Chemistry is one of the largest and most successful academic departments at York. As a Department we strive to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to contribute fully, to flourish, and to excel. We are proud of our Athena SWAN Gold Award.
You will work with Professor Lucy Carpenter and Dr Stephen Andrews to extend the range of ozone depleting substances monitored at the CVAO to include a wider range of established and emerging compounds, and harmonize the measurements and calibration procedures with other measurement groups worldwide. Alongside a PhD student and technical staff at the Cape Verde Observatories, you will establish a program of monthly seawater sampling upwind of the CVAO for measurements of short lived halocarbons by purge and trap GC-MS. You will also support the ongoing VOC measurements at Cape Verde to ensure the continuing high quality GC observational programme.
