PhD Position Risk Assessment of Bioaerosols at ETH Zurich

Applications are invited for a PhD position in microbiology to join ETH Zurich. This position is open until filled.

ETH Zrich is one of the world's leading universities specialising in science and technology. It is renowned for its excellent education, its cutting-edge fundamental research and its efforts to put new knowledge and innovations directly into practice. Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Air Quality and Particle Technology Group (Prof. Dr. J. Wang). The successful candidate will study at the Institute of Environmental Engineering and will also work at Empa (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research). new position.The research is to investigate the risks posed to humans by bioaerosols, including airborne bacteria, viruses, fungi, and fragments of these organisms. Since bioaerosols are widely spread in the atmosphere, some pathogenic microorganisms can lead to a wide range of diseases in human and other organisms. Information of bioaerosol concentration, particle size distributions, and bioaerosols transportation is the essential factor in the risk assessment. The specific tasks are sampling airborne particulate matters in field work, characterizing the ambient with established methods, developing suitable numerical models and evaluating the risk of particular bioaerosols.

We are looking for suitable candidates with a master degree in biology, especially bio-informatics, environmental microbiology or related fields, with excellent grades and great passion. Experience in numerical modeling and data analysis will be considered as an advantage. Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English are required.
