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 2-year project “Arctic climate change: Exploring the Natural Aerosol baseline for improved model Predictions” we are looking for a postdoctoral researcher. Your mission will be to develop a data-driven model in collaboration with the Swiss Data Science Center to investigate potential natural drivers of long-term changes in Arctic aerosol species. You will be able to develop your research themes in international collaborations. You have a strong ambition to publish and to help shape the new Extreme Environments Research Laboratory in Sion.
Main duties and responsibilities include :
Perform research in the field of Arctic aerosols.
