Description of the thesis topic
This project aims to perform laboratory measurements in order to characterize the formation of particles from the oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOC). In particular, the molecular characterization of gas and particle phases during new particle-phase formation will be realized. As a result, chemical reactions involved in the growth of ultrafine particles (<100 nm) will be characterized. The parametrization of these processes will ultimately improve the current models of formation and growth of atmospheric particles.
The recruited person will have to carry out studies in laboratories, using an atmospheric simulation chamber but also aerosol flow reactors. This will include the use and development of various high-resolution mass spectrometry tools.
The candidate must have a strong experience in physical or analytical chemistry. Experience with mass spectrometry tools (e.g., PTR-MS; CIMS) would be highly beneficial. Knowledge of computer language (Matlab, Python) would be a real asset.
The project will take place in the CARE team (Characterization and Remediation of pollutants, http://www.ircelyon.univ-lyon1.fr/la_recherche/equipes_de_recherche/(syrcel_identifier)/CARE "of the Institute for Research on Catalysis and Environment of Lyon (IRCELYON). This laboratory located in Villeurbanne in France is the largest in Europe devoted to heterogeneous catalysis. The CARE team is focused on environmental themes.
