Position: Postdoc Position - Statistical Analysis and Measurements of Organic Trace Gases (VOCs, CFCs) from the Atmosphere
Institution: Eidgenössische Materialprüfungs- und Forschungsanstalt
Location: Dübendorf, Switzerland
Duties: Organic trace gases, such as VOCs and CFCs contribute to global warming, stratospheric ozone depletion and tropospheric air pollution. Their continuous analysis in the atmosphere is an important tool for air quality assessment, atmospheric chemistry and for evaluating the compliance of international agreements. Within this context, Empa performs long-term measurements of organic trace gases at several sites in Switzerland
Requirements: A solid background in analytical chemistry, environmental science or a related field
   
Text: 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 statistical analysis and measurements of organic trace gases (VOCs, CFCs) from the atmosphere Organic trace gases, such as VOCs and CFCs contribute to global warming, stratospheric ozone depletion and tropospheric air pollution. Their continuous analysis in the atmosphere is an important tool for air quality assessment, atmospheric chemistry and for evaluating the compliance of international agreements. Within this context, Empa performs long-term measurements of organic trace gases at several sites in Switzerland. The open position comprises two main tasks. First, Empa is responsible for developing web-based data analysis tools for checking the quality of the VOC data at European measurement sites within the European infrastructure ACTRIS. This involves close collaboration with other measurement sites and the central European calibration laboratory. Second, we are currently developing and implementing gas chromatography / time-of-flight mass spectrometry (GC-TOF-MS) for high-precision analysis of organic trace gases (VOCs, CFCs). Here, the successful candidate will develop tools for the efficient analysis and handling of the large data sets. Furthermore, the candidate will support the team in the further development of the measurement technique in the lab and in the scientific interpretation of the data. We are looking for a postdoc or a scientist with: excellent skills in measurement data analysis, processing and programming. a solid background in analytical chemistry, environmental science or a related field. experience in gas chromatography or mass spectrometry, and in related computer control and data analysis is a plus. For further information about the position please contact Dr. Stefan Reimann, stefan.reimann @empa.ch and visit our Website www.empa.ch/abt503 and Empa-Video . We are looking forward to receiving your online application incl. a letter of motivation, CV and diplomas with transcripts and addresses of two referees. Please upload the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered. Empa, Shalini Kapur, Human Resources, Ueberlandstrasse 129, 8600 Dübendorf, Switzerland.
