Department: Chair of Building Physics of ETHZ
Duration: 3 y
Duties: The urban microclimate results from many interacting complex processes, including wind-driven flows, thermally-driven flows, solar gains, humidity and evaporation. These can be modelled using Computational Fluid Dynamics and other detailed approaches. Building energy use depends on boundary conditions imposed by the local microclimate, for example outdoor air temperatures and local wind speeds. However, such effects are largely ignored in building energy simulations due to their complex nature and difficulty in modelling. This project will conduct advanced sensitivity analysis on both the microclimate and building energy sides of the problem, and combine them to derive the impact of the microclimate on building energy use. Based on these results, where appropriate the statistical technique of Baysian emulation will be used to fit approximate models to detailed CFD results, and the fitted model will be incorporated into building energy simulations. This follows from a proof-of-principle...
Minimum Requirements: The ideal candidate has a masters in Engineering or Physics (or related), and a strong background in building energy simulation and Computational Fluid Dynamics modelling of buildings and urban areas. Mastering the English language is required
Preferred Requirements: Experience in statistics/model fitting/sensitivity analysis and good programming abilities would also be beneficial

Duties: Evolutionary responses to anthropogenic global warming, and more fundamentally, changing stochastic environmental conditions, is currently an active area of biological research.

Department: Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences
Duration: 3 y        Workload: 38 hours per week
Duties: At the margins of the North Atlantic (in the Labrador, Irminger, and Nordic Seas), surface waters cool, mix vertically with waters below, sink, and return southward at depth. This so-called Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is of paramount importance for climate. Models predict that it slackens as climate warms, with considerable consequences. However, ocean eddies - recently found to be crucial for the sinking of dense waters - are still lacking in this picture. This project aims to quantify the role of eddies for the response of the AMOC to high-latitude climate change, covering all relevant scales. The post-doc will analyse the role of eddies based on pairs of eddy-resolving and non-eddy resolving global-scale ocean simulations. Lagrangian techniques, among others, are applied to identify where dense waters sink, how they spread through the deep oceans, and how changes in surface conditions impact this
Minimum Requirements: We are looking for an enthusiastic post-doc with a strong background in physical oceanography and/or (environmental) fluid mechanics, and strong numerical modelling skills. You have a PhD in physical oceanography, civil engineering, physics, mathematics, or a related subject.
