Position Summary

Air quality and climate change are among the biggest societal challenges that we face today.  Atmospheric radicals, particularly hydroxyl and nitrate, are the drivers of chemical processes that determine atmospheric composition and thus influence local and global air quality and climate. 

The successful candidate will join a team of researchers funded by a European project called RADICAL, which is working towards developing the science and technology to electrically detect and quantify atmospheric radicals.  Specific tasks associated with the position include: (i) setting-up electrical measurement units for testing transistor-based radical sensors in an atmospheric gas chamber, (ii) electrically characterising and optimising sensors for detecting atmospheric radicals and (iii) providing essential feedback to research partners on sensor sensitivity, selectivity and other general features of sensor performance. 

The successful candidate will be based in the School of Chemistry and the Environmental Research Institute at University College Cork (UCC) but will be expected to work with researchers in partner institutes throughout Europe.

Post Duration: 12 months

Salary:  €38,630 - € 45,942 p.a. (IUA Salary Scale)

Project Title: Electrical Detection of Atmospheric Radicals (RADICAL)
