PhD fellow in Exolife Science, project 4 in the synergy project “Effects of bacteria on atmospheres of Earth, Mars, and exoplanets at the Niels Bohr I

Københavns Universitet (KU)



The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Exolife Science, understood as the overlap field between physics, biology, astronomy and chemistry, commencing the 15 August 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment
The project is part of a total of 6 new positions supported by the Novo Nordisk Foundation under the Synergy project “Effects of bacteria on atmospheres of Earth, Mars, and exoplanets”, which involve staff at University of Copenhagen from the Niels Bohr Institute, the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Biology. The candidates will work as a team with the common goal of deepening our understanding of the global interactions of life with its surroundings in terrestrial and extraterrestrial environments.

For more information, please see https://cels.nbi.ku.dk/english/openings/

Project description - “Micro-biological influence on atmospheric dynamics”.
Aerosols, which can be microbial organisms, crucially influence planetary albedo and precipitation through changes to cloud properties. Microbial aerosols may even influence cloud formation in ways to improve local conditions – constituting an evolutionary life-climate feedback. In this PhD project, such life-climate interactions will be explored with simulations and theoretical models. We will simulate the effects of microbes spreading in space, interact, and thus evolve. We explore, which planetary atmospheres promote the emergence of life.
