Applications are sought for an EPSRC-funded postdoctoral research associate position to work with Dr Michael Cotterell, Prof Andrew Orr-Ewing and Prof Jonathan Reid at the University of Bristol, UK. The project, New Approaches for Measuring Accelerated Chemical Reactions in Single Aerosol Particles will combine single-particle trapping and cavity ring-down spectroscopy methods to quantify rates of reaction in single, micron-scale aqueous aerosol droplets.
A recent publication by the Bristol group describes some of the methods we will use: Direct Spectroscopic Quantification of the Absorption and Scattering Properties for Single Aerosol Particles, J.W. Knight, J.V. Egan, A.J. Orr-Ewing and M.I. Cotterell, J. Phys. Chem. A. 2022. DOI: 10.1021/acs.jpca.2c00532.
Further details about the position, the skills and experience we seek, and the application process are available here. The University of Bristol’s job reference number is ACAD105825 and the deadline for receipt of applications is April 4, 2022.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Michael Cotterell (email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
