Your mission:

EPFL is creating a new Alpine and Polar Environments Research Centre (ALPOLE) as part of the expansion of the EPFL Sion campus. The establishment of ALPOLE recognizes the global relevance of changes taking place in high-altitude and high-latitude environments, which are sentinels of climate change. The Extreme Environments Research Laboratory (EERL) at ALPOLE focuses amongst other on understanding natural and anthropogenic atmospheric processes, as well as exchange processes between the atmosphere and cryosphere, ocean and (inhabited) land that have climate impact and are impacted by climate.

For the Multidisciplinary drifting Observatory for the Study of Arctic Climate (MOSAiC) project we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher. Your mission will be to conduct interdisciplinary polar research including data analysis and modeling. You will be able to develop your research themes in an international collaboration.

  • Lead or co-lead initiatives within the MOSAiC and other polar consortia.
  • Write proposals as a lead or as a partner in a consortium.
  • Participate in education and student coaching.
  • Promote polar and alpine research and its impact to the public

Your profile:

  • PhD in atmospheric or cryospheric science or a related field
  • Experience or strong interest in analysis of interdisciplinary (atmosphere-cryosphere-ocean) data sets.
  • Experience in atmospheric modeling.
  • Good interpersonal skills, team player.
  • Good knowledge of English (written and spoken).
