The Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories were established in 2013 and host more than 40 researchers in atmospheric chemistry.

Our dedicated research building was the first of its kind in the UK, created following a large award from the Wolfson Foundation and a private donor.

Our laboratories provide a state of the art environment in which to study the science of indoor, urban and global air pollution, stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change. The Laboratories are part of a long-term collaboration between the University of York and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS), a research centre of the Natural Environment Research Council.

Our people include faculty academics, independent research fellows, postdoctoral researchers and technical staff, in addition to being home to a large group of PhD and Masters students.

Our research takes us all around the world, studying the atmosphere from the most polluted urban centres to the most remote and pristine of locations.

WACL strives to provide a working environment which allows all staff and students to excel and contribute fully to the field of atmospheric science. It is committed to the Athena Swan Charter for women, and is part of the Department of Chemistry, University of York
that currently holds a Gold Award.

If you are interested in a career in atmospheric chemistry then please look at our opportunities pages for job vacancies and PhD positions.
