It is widely recognized that climate change can affect the chemical composition of the atmosphere, particularly in large urban centres, with negative consequences for human health and ecosystems. Therefore, it is necessary to study simultaneously air pollution and climate change in urban environments. The Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires (MABA) is among the twelve largest megacities in the world. Given the large number of emission sources that currently exists in the urban area, it is necessary to assess not only the current state of air pollution, but also its possible evolution within the context of climate change.
We are looking for potential candidates to apply for the 5-year Doctoral Fellowship Program from the National Scientific and Technological Research Council of Argentina (CONICET) (http://www.conicet.gov.ar/becario/), in the framework of the PICT-2015-1676 project: Modelling pollutant concentrations in the atmosphere of the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires.
The successful candidate will:
Interested candidates should send a motivation letter, CV, academic transcript and contact information of two persons that could issue recommendation letters to Dr. Andrea Pineda Rojas (firstname.lastname@example.org), before June 16 2017.
