The candidate will be in charge of developing miniaturized instrumentations allowing for atmospheric composition remote-sensing measurements from mobile platforms operated from the ground or onboard of aircrafts.

Required competences:

  • Doctoral degree in sciences (chemistry, physics, or applied sciences)
  • At least 10 years of experience in ground-based UV-visible spectroscopy including retrieval techniques demonstrated by publications in international peer-reviewed journals.
  • Experience with instrumental design, optics and electronics

Internship “Development of a Mobile-DOAS Viewer”.

The Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy is looking for a student to develop a server with webinterface for near real-time map visualization of mobileDOAS measurements of trace gas concentrations such as NO2. This could be done in the framework of a thesis or internship.

The BIRA-IASB Aeromobil is a mobile remote sensing instrument, developed to measure trace gas concentrations which are strongly linked to air quality/pollution.

Candidate profile:

  • Bachelor or Master study – ICT option
  • A general interest in atmospheric chemistry/physics, air quality and/or geoscience is an asset
