Graduate Research Opportunity in Atmospheric Sciences at SUNY-Albany, NY

The Lance Lab within the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) at the State University of New York (SUNY) will be hiring a graduate student starting Summer/Fall 2018 to support experimental investigation of multiphase chemical reactions, especially relevant to the formation of organic aerosol within haze and cloud droplets. This research will include deployment of cloud and aerosol instruments to the Whiteface Mountain (WFM) Summit Research Laboratory and evaluation of measurements obtained during the 2017 WFM pilot study 'Chemical Processing of Organics within Clouds' (CPOC). https://www.asrc-research.com/single-post/2017/08/29/WFM-Pilot-Study

 

Other ongoing research projects include laboratory studies of cloud water composition using a High Resolution Time of Flight Aerosol Mass Spectrometer and development of an electrodynamic balance to characterize the physical and chemical changes single-particles undergo when exposed to different environmental conditions.
