PhD student in European emission modelling of halogenated greenhouse gases

Empa - the place where innovation starts
Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

The Laboratory for Air Pollution / Environmental Technology has an opening for a

PhD student in European emission modelling of halogenated greenhouse gases


This PhD study aims at developing inverse modelling techniques for detecting and quantifying sources of halogenated greenhouse gases in Switzerland and Europe. Empa has been pioneering source localisation and quantification of these gases for more than a decade. The PhD student will advance current methods by using novel, high-resolution atmospheric transport simulations and newly available observations (GC-TOFMS). The tasks will include a thorough analysis of the uncertainties connected to the atmospheric transport model and the inverse estimates. This information is crucial for the further use of inverse modelling results for the validation of European emissions to be used, for example, in the Paris Agreement. The improved inverse modelling system will be applied to data from three measurement campaigns in Switzerland, the Netherlands and Estonia, which are carried out as part of an accompanying PhD study at Empa. The successful candidate will be enrolled at ETHZ, co-supervised by Prof. T. Peter.

Job description, responsibilities and tasks

  • Development of inverse modelling approaches for the detection of new halogenated greenhouse gases.

  • Application of inverse modelling to new observational data from three measurement campaigns in Switzerland, the Netherlands and Estonia.

  • Data analysis and interpretation in cooperation with a PhD study in analytical chemistry.

Required skills

  • Master degree in physics, meteorology or a related discipline

  • Solid knowledge in atmospheric transport models

  • Excellent programming skills: e.g. FORTRAN, R, Linux shell scripting

  • Ability to communicate scientific results in peer-reviewed journals and conferences

  • Fluency in English is required; basic oral expression skills in German are desirable

For further information about the position please contact Dr. Stephan Henne,
