PhD Position at the Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna

Investigating early growth of newly formed aerosol nanoparticles under cold conditions

Assoz. Prof. Dr. Paul Winkler, Privatdoz.

A PhD position in the field of aerosol physics is currently available at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna. The position is part of the EU funded MSCA initial training network CLOUD-DOC which is an international consortium to study aerosol formation and nanoparticle growth processes under atmospheric conditions at the CLOUD experiment at CERN, Geneva. The PhD student at the University of Vienna will do experimental research using a DMA train for sub-10 nm particle growth analysis and investigate heterogeneous nucleation at cold temperatures aiming for improved nanoparticle detection.


The position comes with a full PhD salary according to the Austrian Collective Bargaining Agreement, and mobility allowance in addition. Besides top-level research the successful candidate will receive broad education in atmospheric and aerosol sciences including participation in international summer and winter schools. The exposure to a large international scientific community guarantees first-class build-up of a network for future professional connections.

Wanted profile

The position requires an academic background (master level) in physics and/or chemistry with expertise in atmospheric and aerosol sciences being clearly advantageous. The international exposure makes fluency in English mandatory. Candidates need to be aware that frequent travel is an integral part of this position.

The earliest starting date is October 1st, 2022, employment will last for 36 months.
