Postdoc in Atmospheric Sciences

University of Basel - Department of Environmental Sciences

Basel, Switzerland

The Atmospheric Science group at the Department of Environmental Sciences, University of Basel, Switzerland, is looking for a postdoc candidate. Our research focuses on chemical processes in the atmosphere to elucidate the formation and toxicity of atmospheric aerosol particles. The development of new analytical-chemical methods and instruments to characterize organic aerosols is a main focus of our work.

Your position

Our group develops novel instruments to measure continuously oxidising properties of aerosol particles in the ambient atmosphere and in laboratory experiments (e.g., Utinger et al., Atmospheric Measurement Techniques, 2023, 2641–2654). The postdoc project will focus on lab and field measurements to characterise oxidative particle properties (with our novel instrument and other techniques) from a wide range of particle sources. A special focus of the project will be to elucidate interactions between metals and organic particle components using real-world aerosol sources, as well effects of atmospheric aging processes on particle toxicity.

Your profile

  • An PhD degree in chemistry, environmental sciences, physics or a related field;
  • Experience in analytical chemistry and/or atmospheric sciences is highly favourable;
  • A very good level of English (spoken and written);
  • Excellent communication skills and a willingness to collaborate with other team members are essential;
  • Strong self-motivation, perseverance, and a creative way of problem solving;
  • Ability to work independently.
