The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland includes nine schools with more than 12’000 students.
We are looking for you to join the School of Engineering, Institute of Aerosol and Sensor Technology, in Windisch, Switzerland, at the earliest possible date : Your tasks : You will use a newly developed photothermal interferometry (PTI) technique as a practical tool to measure aerosol absorption.
The optical properties of various soot or black carbon (BC) particles will be investigated with PTI in the laboratory, ambient air and at international calibration and intercomparison workshops.
Furthermore, you will help with the presentation of results at national and international conferences and workshops as well as with their publication in peer-
reviewed journals. This position is limited to 3 years. Your profile : You have a Master’s degree with high marks in environmental science, chemistry, physics or an equivalent subject as well as an affinity for practical work in the laboratory.
Ideally, you can already look back on practical experience in optics and / or atmospheric science including aerosol physics.
You like challenging science and you enjoy working in a team, but you are also able to work independently. Your written and spoken English is very good.
Knowledge of German is advantageous. Please submit your application before 15 July 2018 online via the following button to Alberto Tagliatti, HR officer.
For further information please contact Prof. Dr. Ernest Weingartner, lecturer in sensor and aerosol technology, P +41 56 202 79 18, Email : ernest.
