Postdoc in Atmospheric Chemistry, physics, earth and environmental sciences 1011 views


This position focuses on the measurement of radiocarbon in atmospheric methane and carbon dioxide in Switzerland, their spatial and temporal variabilities as well as the potential of radiocarbon for the quantification of methane sources

About the position:

  1. Climate change is inextricably linked with perturbations to the carbon cycle brought on by emissions of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide and methane.
  2. Radiocarbon is unique in its potential to provide direct constraints on the magnitude and pace of carbon exchange between the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and terrestrial ecosystems.
  3. Building on recent advances in radiocarbon measurements and the emergence of isotope-enabled carbon cycle and earth system models, Radiocarbon Inventories of Switzerland (RICH) is a first-of-its-kind project to use radiocarbon to constrain carbon cycle processes at a national level

Eligibility Criteria:

  • You have a PhD in chemistry, physics, earth or environmental sciences.
  • You are an excellent scientist with creative ideas, fascinated to develop and apply analytical methods.
  • You have both strong technical as well as modelling skills, an affinity for multidisciplinary cooperation and, ideally, prior experience in fieldwork.
  • You are fluent in spoken and written English. A good level in German is

How to apply:
