[Met-jobs] Vacancy: Open PhD Position at IAC ETH-Zurich (Switzerland)

From Andrea Stenke <>

Date Mon, 13 Aug 2012 20:43:34 +0200

Open PhD position in Chemistry-Climate-Modeling at the Institute for Atmospheric and Climate Science, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

We invite applications for a 3-yr PhD position within the project "Modeling and experiments of land-surface interactions with atmospheric chemistry and climate II (MAIOLICA-II)" funded by the ETH Competence Center of Environment and Sustainability. The main goal of this project is to investigate atmospheric methane concentrations in a changing climate including feedbacks among the terrestrial biosphere, atmospheric composition and climate.

The PhD student will apply a state-of-the-art global chemistry-climate model to investigate key processes driving the observed variability of atmospheric CH4 concentrations in the recent past and to make projections of future CH4 concentrations. The main tasks will be to adapt the existing model configuration to the requirements of the study as well as to perform and analyse the model simulations.

Requirements are a MSc degree (or equivalent) in atmospheric, climate or environmental sciences, mathematics, or physics. Applicants should have deep interest in the modeling of physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere at all scales. Some experience in numerical chemistry or climate modeling will be a plus. Good knowledge of mathematical fundamentals and good programming skills (FORTRAN-95 as well as IDL, NCL or comparable languages) are required. Applicants are expected to be fluent in English.

Entrance upon: The position can be taken as soon as possible.

Please e-mail application letters and all relevant documents (curriculum vitae, names of 2 references, diploma) in one pdf file to Dr. Andrea Stenke (<>). For informal enquiries concerning this position, please contact Dr. Andrea Stenke (+41 44 633 3625).
