At the Institute for Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht the following vacancies are open for application:

PhD position

Modelling volcanic eruptions using sulfur isotopes

The impact of a volcanic eruption is dependent on whether the eruption reaches the stratosphere, where aerosols have a longer lifetime. Read more.
