PhD student - Air Quality Services (R1) per el Barcelona Supercomputing Center

The Department of Earth Sciences of the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre-Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), BSC-ES henceforth ( is one of the most active groups in air quality and atmospheric composition modeling, climate prediction and climate services in Europe. The Department comprises about 160 people, including scientists and technical staff. It is structured into five distinct but interacting research groups: Atmospheric Composition, Climate Prediction, Earth System Services (ESS), Global Health Resilience, and Computational Earth Sciences.

The candidate will work in the ESS group. The ESS group develops climate and air quality services, facilitating knowledge and technology transfer of state-of-the-art research at local, national, and international levels. The main purpose is to demonstrate the ongoing value of climate prediction services, atmospheric composition, and weather forecasting to society and key sectors of the economy, such as renewable energy, urban development, infrastructure, transport, insurance, health, and agriculture.

The group hosts air quality and climate researchers, research engineers, physicists, social scientists, economists, epidemiologists, and communication experts who work to bring the latest developments in earth sciences to society. ESS has an interdisciplinary approach with several lines of expertise working together and collaborating with the other research groups within the Earth Sciences Department.

Cutting-edge operational forecast services on climate, air quality, and airborne dust are created by ESS via collaboration with public administration, from our involvement as leaders in multinational partnerships, as well as through private contracts with companies willing to exploit the opportunities that arise from disposing of information on future climate and air quality. Close collaboration with stakeholders pioneering the application of this knowledge in their operative decisions is essential to foster adaptation to climate change and move towards a more resilient and sustainable society.

The ESS is looking for a Junior Research Engineer in air quality modeling willing to perform multidisciplinary research and provide user-tailored products for European and national projects. The position will interact with researchers from different areas (e.g., health, mobility, and social sciences) to perform advanced data analysis on existing air quality, health, and mobility databases. Successful candidates will benefit from the training program and BSC-CNS staff benefits: an international multidisciplinary scientific environment, advanced research training, and advanced computational facilities. We encourage applications from highly motivated physicists, engineers, and mathematicians (and related disciplines) with outstanding qualifications.

Key Duties

  • Analyze and evaluate model results against observations; prepare charts and reports.
  • Data science and implementation of new machine learning workflows to analyze interactions among mobility, air quality, socio-economic variables, and health.
  • Perform innovative user-oriented research, interact with users, and facilitate technology transfer.
  • Multidisciplinary research, working with atmospheric composition scientists, IT developers, and health and mobility experts.
  • Communicate scientific results within the Department, in international conferences and write quality papers in scientific publications.
  • Involvement in the preparation of competitive grants and projects.

Fòrum Universitat Empresa EPSEM

Cada any la UPC Manresa organitza al mes de maig una fira amb estands d'empreses, col·legis professionals, associacions universitaries i serveis dirigits a l'estudiantat que vol començar a treballar. En paral·lel es fan tallers i xerrades els dies anteriors o el mateix dia de la fira per ajudar a l'estudiantat a preparar la fira i a conèixer millor les empreses o els serveis de la universitat. Les empreses i col·legis professionals que hi vulguin participar s'han d'inscriure prèviament. Aquest esdeveniment té com objectiu facilitar el primer contacte entre les empreses i l'estudiantat. Podeu trobar UPC Alumni al seu estand  consultar els vostres dubtes Més informació Més posts d' UPC Alumni

ICFO: Internships for Undergraduate & Masters Students

The ICFO(obriu en una finestra nova), Institute of Photonic Sciences, is a center based in the Mediterranean Technology Park, in the Barcelona metropolitan area (Spain), devoted to research and education in Photonics at the highest international level.  ICFO is currently (obriu en una finestra nova)offering opportunities(obriu en una finestra nova) for internships to top-qualified graduate students who wish to accomplish Final Degree Projects / Masters' Theses or to participate in a research stay in any of the research topics active at ICFO. In this sense, we recently launched the "Internships for Undergraduate & Masters Students" call for all interested students who meet the requirements described. The application form and further details are available at the ICFOjobs website . This call will remain open until November 21, 2021.
