PhD or Post Doctoral Position – PEMS4Nano
The European Union-funded PEMS4Nano (PEMS4nano.eu) project is seeking a researcher with experience in aerosol measurement of emissions. The successful candidate will be a motivated researcher seeking to advance measurement of emissions down to 10 nm and below for on-road measurement of vehicle exhaust. The work conducted at the University of Cambridge will focus on the development of solid and semi-volatile particle measurement. The research seeks to improve catalytic strippers for solid particle penetration for particles at and below 10 nm, while additionally developing new methods to measure semi-volatile species.
The two year project (1 year + 1 year extension) can provide funding for a post doctoral researcher or researcher with a MS degree seeking to do a PhD. For applicants wishing to complete a PhD, an additional 1+ year (3+ year PhD) of funding will need to be identified from personal contributions or fellowships. Project management and entrepreneurship are highly valued, as it is likely that portions of the work will be commercialized.

PhD student, Brian Graves, won Churchill College Shell Prize.
The Shell Prize is given to the best research proposal from a Post Doc, Graduate or Undergraduate student at Churchill College. This year two prizes were awarded. It is targeted toward STEM subjects, particularly projects with relevance to energy, engineering, and big data.
The Centre for Sustainable Road Freight has a position available for a Masters or PhD level applicant. The two year project will seek to develop sensors for full vehicle energy use and emissions monitoring of in-use vehicles via Android apps. Project management and entrepreneurship are highly valued, as it is likely that portions of the work will be commercialized.
