The impact of aerosols on climate remains poorly constrained, leading to considerable uncertainties in predicting the climate sensitivity to greenhouse gases.
A large fraction of these uncertainties is due to our deficient knowledge of the composition and magnitude of natural emissions before 1750, especially for organic aerosols, forming 20-
70% of today’s fine particulate matter.
You will determine the composition and sources of the bulk organic matter in the pristine, pre-industrial atmospheres, and quantify the influence of the human activity thereon, by analysing well-
dated glacier ice cores utilizing innovative techniques such radiocarbon analysis with accelerator mass spectrometry.
Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, in addition to personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture.
If you wish to optimally combine work and family life or other personal interests, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.
