This project aims at characterizing photochemical, and especially photosensitized, reactions that are occurring in or on tropospheric aerosols. In particular, the kinetics and reaction mechanisms will be studied by means of various tools such aerosol flow tubes, laser induced transient spectroscopy, etc. coupled to different analytical tools, such as mass spectrometers, that will allow the identification of transient and final products.
These measurements aims at quantifying the importance of photosensitation in the troposphere.


La personne recrutée devra mener des études en laboratoires, à l'aide d'une chambre de simulation atmosphérique mais également de réacteurs à aérosols ou encore de système de photolyse laser. Ceci inclura l'emploi et le développement de divers outils de spectrométrie de masse à haute résolution.
The recruited person will perform laboratory-based experiments, mainly by means of an atmospheric simulation chamber and aerosol flow reactors or laser spectroscopy, coupled to various online high-resolution mass spectrometers.


Applicants should have a strong background in experimental physical or analytical chemistry, with a good level in English. Applicants having experience in handling high-resolution mass spectrometers, (e.g., PTR-MS, CIMS,...) or optical systems (e.g., lasers) are encouraged to apply. Skills in coding (Matlab, Python), would be beneficial.

Work Context

The researcher will work in the CARE team (Characterisation and Remediation of pollutants," of the Institute of Researches on Catalysis and Environment of LYON (IRCELYON). This academic laboratory located in Villeurbanne (France) is the largest one in Europe devoted to heterogeneous catalysis. The CARE group is focused on environmental topics.
