Postdoc Position
One Postdoc position for highly motivated person with PhD in physical sciences and advanced skills in atmospheric chemistry data analysis, mass spectrometry, instrumental analyses and python coding or WRF model.

Those interested should contact Dr. Vinayak Sinha at This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Atmospheric chemistry impacts of agricultural crop residue burning on ambient atmospheric reactivity and air quality (e.g. Chandra and Sinha 2016, Kumar et al. 2016, Kumar et al., 2018)
  • Assessing closure of budget of reactive gaseous emissions in pollution plumes and identification of missing reactive emissions (e.g. Kumar et al. 2018)
  • Source apportionment of air pollutants using chemical fingerprinting of sources and real time ambient measurements (e.g. Sarkar et al., 2016, Sarkar et al. 2017, Kumar et al. 2020)
  • Screening of plant species for biogenic reactive volatile compounds to assess those suitable for urban forestry and to study their climate and air quality impacts (e.g. Vettikat et al., 2020)
  • Assessing the impact of the odd-even traffic rule like interventions on air quality (e.g. Chandra et al., 2018)
  • Compilation of biogenic and anthropogenic emission inventories over India using measured emission factors and emission activity in collaboration with Dr. Baerbel Sinha’s group (e.g. Sharma et al., 2019)
  • Development and validation of low cost reactive gas samplers (e.g. Chandra et al., 2017)
