Dr. Ke Du from University of Calgary is seeking for a motivated Ph.D. student in the area of air quality science and engineering for Fall 2017or Winter 2018 enrollment. The successful candidate will be nominated to receive the prestigious “Eyes High” scholarship (http://grad.ucalgary.ca/faculty/eyeshigh). To be eligible for this award, you must (1) Have MSc degree in related fields described below; (2) have a GPA of 3.5 or better for the last two years of course study; and (3) have a TOEFL > 86 or IELTS> 6.5 if your native language is not English.
The student will be expected to conduct research in one of the following areas: 1) Development of method/technology/instrument to monitor airborne pollutants and investigate their pollution characteristics, transportation, and impact on ambient air quality; 2) Carbonaceous aerosols, in particular black carbon (field sampling, instrumental analysis, source apportionment, radiative forcing effects); 3) Modeling the environmental and climate impact of anthropogenic air pollutants. The ideal candidate should hold a MS degree in Atmospheric Science, Meteorology, Environmental Engineering, or other related fields; and also have experience on aerosol sampling and chemical analysis, optical properties of aerosols, source apportionment techniques, optical remote sensing techniques, air quality modeling, or climate modeling.
