Estado de la convocatoria: Cerrado

Application deadline: hasta el 21.09.2018.

Who we are:

The environmental sensors group researches novel approaches for low-cost, yet sensitive and robust chemical sensors. The efforts are focused on climate-relevant and health-endangering gas species, e.g. as they occur in natural or industrial processes. The group's research aim to paves the way for new applications, such as to increase the energy efficiency of buildings, the large-scale monitoring of greenhouse gases or in the optimization of biogas processes. For gas analysis, both photonic and solid state based technologies are currently employed and new approaches range from Raman spectroscopy of gases to photoacoustics and metal oxide-based gas sensors.

The project:

Environmental pollutants such as NOx/CO/SOx/VOC emissions are a societal challenge in Europe due to the adverse health effects they cause. Currently the monitoring of such gas is performed by expensive and stationary sensor modules, which prevents a large-scale monitoring and the design of mitigation strategies. Primary task during the contract is the development/programming of an application that provides temporally and spatially resolved maps of NOx gas concentrations using the group’s sensors.

What we offer:

The environmental sensors group provides a stimulating environment to perform research at the interface between science and technology.

We offer a part time position (60%) with a duration of 12 months, the salary is 852€/month and includes Spanish social security.

Starting date is 15 October 2018 or earlier, if possible.

Who we look for:

We look for highly motivated candidates who have completed a Master’s degree (or similar) in Science or Engineering and have a strong background in programming as well as a passion for performing research and development at the interface between academia and industry. Additionally, an interest to acquire new skills in cyber-physical systems is beneficial.

How to apply:

Please send you application including a motivational letter, a curriculum vitae, and your final degree score to stefan.palzer@uam.es. Please make sure to state the reference ESG-1810PT02 Deadline for applications is 21.09.2018.

UAM reserves the right for justified reasons to leave the position vacant, to extend the application period and to consider candidates who have not submitted applications during the application period.
