Bachelor and Master Thesis / Internships / Civilian Service

Students interested in our research are encouraged to consider joining us for an internship, civilian service, or as part of their bachelor's or master's thesis. Most of our students are from ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich, but students from other Swiss universities are also invited to apply.

If you are interested in joining us, please contact the research group in your field of interest directly. Examples for current project opportunities are listed below with details available on

Opportunities for Bachelor, Master and internships

Praktikant/In Data-Engineering

Als Praktikant/In Data-Engineering im Projekt PAUL kannst du unsere Data-Pipeline weiterentwicklen und gestalten. Diese verarbeitet Daten aus mehr als 200 CO2-Sensoren, welche im Grossraum Zürich installiert werden und die Messung urbaner Treibhausgasemissionen dienen.

Quantifying CO2 and NO2 emissions of cities and power plants from satellite observations

In this project, you will quantify the CO2 and NO2 emissions of cities and power plants from the new Sentinel-5P TROPOMI satellite that provides high-resolution images of NO2 emission plumes.

Opportunities for civilian servants

Project staff ''saubereLuft'' (81721)

Our lab contributes to the reduction of air pollution and greenhouse gases. For this purpose, we work together with the Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) and with numerous national and international research institutions. Thanks to the development and field application of new measurement methods, we identify, quantify and reduce sources of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. In this context, the following supporting activities are possible:

  • Development and testing of new measurement methods;
  • Planning, implementation and evaluation of measurements of air pollutants;
  • Visualisation and interpretation of measurement results using dispersion models.
