PhD position – Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

University of Leeds, UK
Closing date: 21 June 2024

University of Leeds is offering a fully funded PhD studentship (due to start in October 2024), in collaboration with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), to undertake novel research targeting one of the major air quality challenges facing the UK – the ammonia problem!

Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

Supervisors: Dr Wuhu Feng, Dr Richard Pope and Prof Martyn Chipperfield

For project details see:

This project aims to exploit state-of-the-art satellite observations and modelling to better constrain ammonia emissions, their temporal changes (from a legislative point of view) and to quantify the impact of these emissions changes on key air pollutants such as PM2.5 (particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 microns). The deadline for applications is Friday 21st June 2024.

For informal enquiries please contact Dr Wuhu Feng (W.Feng@leeds.ac.uk), Dr Richard Pope (r.j.pope@leeds.ac.uk) or Prof Martyn Chipperfield (M.Chipperfield@leeds.ac.uk).
