The atmosphere is a highly complex system influenced and driven by countless chemical and physical processes. At the Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Troposphere (IEK-8) – we investigate the physical and chemical processes in the lower atmosphere (troposphere) that control atmospheric self-cleaning and lead to the formation of aerosols and ozone that are relevant to health and climate. Atmospheric process understanding and predictions use complex models that are underpinned by observations. Without high-quality observation data to constrain predictive models, any forecast of the atmosphere is highly unreliable. The Aerosol, Clouds and Trace Gases Research Infrastructure (ACTRIS) is the pan-European research infrastructure producing high-quality data and information on short-lived atmospheric constituents and on the processes leading to the variability of these constituents in natural and controlled atmospheres.
Within the framework of ACTRIS we are looking to recruit a
ACTRIS offers access to high-quality long-term atmospheric data and its state-of-the-art facilities. It develops new technologies and algorithms for monitoring activities relevant for climate and air quality models, satellite retrievals and forecast systems, serving a vast community of users working in research, space agencies, operational services, public and private sectors. ACTRIS technologies are fostered by Topical Centers (TCs). This includes:
The ACTRIS Centre for Reactive Trace Gases In Situ Measurements “CiGas” is managed by the IEK-8 and provides this support for Reactive Trace Gases in the atmosphere. For the implementation and operational support of CiGas your tasks will be in detail:
