Position: Scientist or engineer specializing in stable isotopes/laser spectroscopy on the greenhouse gases CO2/CH4
Institution: Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Location: Braunschweig, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: Working Group 3.42, Spectrometric Gas Analysis combines the fields of gas metrology and molecular spectroscopy. We develop, investigate, optimize and apply laser spectrometric methods and measuring instruments in the fields of metrology, environmental sciences, and industry; Within the scope of an international research project funded by the EU which consists in measuring isotope ratios of greenhouse gases, in particular of CO2 and CH4, we are managing the work package on optical isotope ratio spectroscopy; You will support us by taking care of the following: Scientifically implementing a third-party-funded EMPIR project on optical isotope ratio spectroscopy (OIRS) in small molecules in the gas phase; Developing, optimizing, applying, and ensuring the metrological characterization of IR laser spectrometers for the isotope ratio measurement of 13/12C and 2/1H in CO2 and CH4; Conducting international comparison measurements; Investigating the traceability of -values in CO2 and CH4 to the SI; Performing data analysis, and programming analytical software; Coordinating tasks when filling in for the work package leader
Requirements: You have completed your university studies (Master's or German Diplom) in natural sciences or electrical engineering with a very good grade. A doctorate, preferably in the fields of laser spectroscopy or isotope ratio measurements, would be appreciated but is not a requirement; You have experimental experience in the field of laser/molecular spectroscopy in the MIR/NIR range; You have a very good command of scientific and technical English, both written and spoken; Experience in the following fields would be an advantage: isotope ratio measurements in gases, in particular CO2 and CH4; good programming experience (in particular Labview or Python); experience in the fields of metrology/measurement uncertainty analysis; careful and cautious handling of gases (as well as hazardous substances), ultrapure and isotope-labeled gases as well as vacuum techniques; cooperating and coordinating tasks in international projects; You have strong experimental as well as analytical skills; You have an autonomous and accurate working style; You are a team player with excellent communication skills; You are willing to travel within Germany and abroad within the scope of your assignment
