Scientist or Postdoctoral Researcher on mitigation of N2O emissions from biological wastewater treatment using isotopic constraints (a) in Dübendorf

EMPA (European Master of Public Administration Consortium) is a network of European schools, that offer master programs in public administration.


  • Implement and validate a setup for online analysis of N2O concentrations and isotopic composition.
  • Design and perform experiments on pilot-scale and full-scale wastewater treatment plants to quantify N2O emissions and isotopic fingerprints under standard operation and optimized conditions. Collect auxiliary parameters, e.g. reactant concentrations and 15N/14N, in the aqueous phase. The measurement campaigns will be planned and conducted in collaboration with Eawag experts in process engineering.
  • Interpret results with respect to source processes to improve the parameterization of models established by a fellow-postdoctoral researcher at Eawag focussing on model development.
  • Communicate results in project reports, at meetings, conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
  • MSc or PhD degree in natural sciences, chemistry or a related discipline.
  • Solid background in measurement techniques, isotope analysis, optical spectroscopy and / or the nitrogen biogeochemical cycle.
  • Experience and strong flair for experimental research on engineered systems.
  • Willingness to collaborate in a team environment with technicians, process engineers and operating staff at treatment plants.
  • Software skills (e.g. Python, MATLAB or R).
  • Ability to communicate scientific results in peer-reviewed journals and at conferences.
  • Fluency in English is required; basic knowledge of German is a plus.
We look forward to receiving your complete online application including a letter of motivation, CV, certificates, transcripts of diplomas and contact details of two reference persons. Please submit these exclusively via our job portal. Applications by e-mail and by post will not be considered.
Applications will be reviewed by experts of Empa & Eawag.
