Research Assistant in Atmospheric Aerosol Sciences
Closing date: 8th of August 2019

The Cyprus Institute (CyI) is a non-profit research and educational institution with a strong scientific and technological orientation, emphasizing international collaborations, cross-disciplinary research, innovation, and post graduate education. CyI, through its established research centers, addresses challenging issues that are important at both the regional and international levels. Many of its research activities are being carried out in partnership with leading institutions in the respective thematic areas.

The combination of the most recent developments on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and miniaturized sensors creates unique opportunities to establish rapidly cost-effective observations of the atmospheric column and fill the gap between ground-based and satellite measurements. Thanks to lowering the cost of investment and field operation, new UAV-sensor systems have the potential, yet unexplored, to enhance vertically the geographical coverage of international atmospheric networks and play a critical role in the rigorous quantification of the effect of climate forcers (such as aerosols) on the earth radiation budget and climate.

The Research Assistantship aims to provide innovative solutions to perform cost-effective in-situ profiling of aerosol properties in the first kilometers of the troposphere using UAV-sensor systems. Leveraging prototype developments, this project will qualify and exploit a comprehensive suite of UAV-based sensors enabling the profiling of key aerosol properties.
The successful candidate will be working at the Unmanned System Research Laboratory of the Cyprus Institute (http://usrl.cyi.ac.cy) among a highly qualified team of electronic / mechanical / system engineers and professional pilots flying commercial airliners.

Full details are attached.
