Job Details

The Ice Core and Atmospheric Chemistry Lab ( and the Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Group ( at the University of Rochester have openings for up to 2 PhD students. Students would work on research projects aiming to improve our understanding of the atmospheric cycle of methane in past, modern and future atmospheres. Methane is an important contributor to anthropogenic warming and a key player in global atmospheric chemistry, and its atmospheric concentration is currently rising at unprecedented rates. The projects would provide experience with hands-on work in the field and laboratory, as well as with using chemistry-climate models to interpret observations. For further information, please contact Vas Petrenko at or Lee Murray at For information on applying to the graduate program at the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Rochester please see


From the U Rochester website: "The University of Rochester is one of the country's top-tier research universities. Our 158 buildings house more than 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 10,500 students—approximately half of whom are women. Learning at the University of Rochester is also on a very personal scale. Rochester remains one of the smallest and most collegiate among top research universities, with smaller classes, a low 10:1 student to teacher ratio, and increased interactions with faculty."
