Postdoctoral Research Assignment “Measurements of Gas and Particulate Air Pollutants using Low-Cost Sensors”
The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences, Foundation of Research and Technology - Hellas, (FORTH/ICE- HT) is seeking applicants for one position for postdoctoral research assignment in the context of the research project «Constrained aerosol forcing for improved climate projections(FORCes)” (Grant Agreement number: 821205 — FORCeS — H2020-LC-CLA-2018-2019-2020 / H2020-LC-CLA-2018-2) which is implemented under the EU-Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Action.
To conduct research under a work or a fixed-term employment contract in the framework of the aforementioned project "FORCeS". The main objective of FORCeS is to understand and reduce the long-standing uncertainty in anthropogenic aerosol radiative forcing and to increase confidence in climate projections. The objective of this job is to improve the simulations of the concentrations of atmospheric pollutants combining model predictions and measurements from low-cost air pollutant sensor networks.
