The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and its Institute of
Meteorology and Climate Research / Atmospheric Environmental Research
(KIT/IMK-IFU) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, invites applications for a

Post-doctoral position (or PhD): Feasibility Study for a Smart Air
Quality Network

Public meteorological and air quality measurement networks are no longer
the only data source in cities. Low-cost sensor networks are rapidly
developing. Some of these networks are going to be based on the cell
phone network.

We seek a researcher (PostDoc or PhD) to
• Prepare and conduct a feasibility study on the applicability of
various already existing or planned low-cost sensor networks in cities
• integrate data from such networks in climatological and air quality
assessments with high spatial and temporal resolution
• compare the obtained datasets with hexacopter measurements in Augsburg
• compare the obtained datasets with numerical model simulations with
three-dimensional meso-scale and micro-scale chemistry-transport models
for Augsburg (Germany).

The candidate should hold a University Diploma or Master Degree in
Meteorology, Natural or Engineering Sciences or a related field. A
profound knowledge in programming (Fortran), in handling vast amounts of
data and in running numerical simulation models is required.

Competencies in negotiating with public and private authorities and with
other project partners are an important asset. Good oral and written
language skills in English are mandatory.

We offer an excellent infrastructure and an international research
environment in the beautiful surroundings of Garmisch-Partenkirchen,
Germany. Early career researchers will be supported by the IFU Graduate
Office with regard to training and career development.

The appointment will be for 3 years, expected to start on June 1, 2017.
Remuneration is on the basis of the wage agreement of the civil service
in TV-L EG13, depending on qualifications and experience (PhD students
receive roughly three quarters of this amount).

If the successful candidate chooses to pursue a PhD, the dissertation is
to be submitted at the University of Cologne (Germany).

The position is funded by the German Ministry of Transport and Digital
Infrastructure and is part of a larger project together with other
scientific and industrial partners in Southern Germany. For more
information please contact Prof. Dr. Stefan Emeis (stefan.emeis(at)

Applications include a CV with publication list, a short (1-2 page)
letter of motivation and contact details for 2 referees, and should be
sent electronically to Prof. Dr. Stefan Emeis (stefan.emeis(at)
until July 1, 2017 at the latest. The position remains open until a
suitable candidate has been selected. The motivation letter should
clearly state your skills, and how you feel you can contribute to the
main tasks. Applications that are incomplete or do not meet the
requirements will not be considered.

KIT strives to achieve gender balance at all levels of employment.
Therefore, we particularly encourage female candidates to apply for this
position. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially considered
if equally qualified.
