Empa - the place where innovation starts

Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

The Laboratory for Air Pollution / Environmental Technology has an opening for a

2-year postdoc position on atmospheric dispersion modelling at the local and regional scale

This position is embedded in our activities for highly resolved CO2 measurements based on a Swiss network of nearly 300 sensors, and in the European research project FLAIR (FLying ultrA-broadband single-shot InfraRed sensor). Both projects provide unique data sets of trace gas measurements using novel detection techniques. The successful candidate will combine mesoscale atmospheric transport models, emission inventories, and a model of biosphere-atmosphere exchange of CO2, to provide model based concentration fields that will be compared and assimilated with atmospheric measurements. This is strongly linked to our research in both atmospheric transport modelling and air quality measurements. For UAV based measurements, it involves strong collaboration with our FLAIR research partners in Switzerland, Portugal and the Netherlands.
