The position is open in an ERC consolidator project assessing emissions of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) from tundra ecosystems to the atmosphere. In this project, we will conduct laboratory and field measurements in order to get a better understanding of the controls of emission of BVOCs from plants, soil and ecosystems. BVOCs will be measured using proton transfer reaction-time of flight-mass spectrometry (PTR-TOF-MS) and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The host research group on Ecosystem-Atmosphere Interactions is led by Professor Riikka Rinnan and consists of 5-10 other research staff members plus a number of students.  
 
The candidate will be affiliated both to the Department of Biology and to the Center for Permafrost (CENPERM), both at University of Copenhagen.

Other tasks include keeping track of field equipment, purchasing equipment and consumables, assisting in laboratory work, data management and logistics related to the field work. This includes making travel arrangements, coordinating permits, and completing reports to field stations. The candidate has a possibility to participate in field work in exciting locations, such as Greenland.
