Examples of suitable higher university degrees for the candidate are in physics, chemistry, or environmental sciences. Good knowledge of physics is expected. Previous studies in aerosol physics or organic chemistry as well as programming skills will be regarded as an advantage. The doctoral student position may be applied for by persons who already are enrolled as doctoral students at the University of Eastern Finland and by persons planning to complete their doctoral studies at the University of Eastern Finland.
English will be used as the language of instruction and supervision in this position.
