The student will work in the Atmospheric Physics group at the University of Toronto, which has an active program in remote sounding of atmospheric composition from ground-based, balloon, and satellite platforms, along with supporting radiative transfer studies and laboratory spectroscopy. The student will join a research group that is involved in a wide variety of projects that use UV-visible and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers to improve the measurements the concentrations of trace gases in the atmospheres of Earth and Mars.
We are looking for a student to work with a PhD student in the assembly and testing of a new long path White cell for laboratory spectra measurements. The student will work with vacuum, gas handling, opto-mechanical systems, and will gain experience operating an FTIR spectrometer.
Engineering or Physics 2nd year +, B+ or higher. Interest in working with hardware, including vacuum systems, gas handling, and optics. Some knowledge of computer programming would be an asset
