The LESO-PB has, in the past decade, developed reserach in the field of urban monitoring and

simulations. In this context, you will be involved in the BRIDGE-Discovery project “Measurement and

Replication of Drone-Scale Atmospheric Turbulence in a Simulator of Autonomous Flight Environments

(SAFE) for Drone Certification”. This project aims at using meteorological data collected in urban areas

to better understand and simulate meteorological variables and in particular turbulent structures. The

objective is to obtain better forecast of the wind patterns thereby improving the safety of drone flights.

Additionally, with the effects of climate change, we aim to identify how these patterns will evolve in the


Your responsibilites and duties will include :

  • You will be ask to analyse dataset of meteorological variables (wind speed, temperature, etc.). In particular, you will use the measurement done in the framework of the MoTUS project.
  • Determine the most relevant turbulent patterns and define how they can be used in a drone test facility at HES-SO Geneva.
  • Develop new parameterizations for urban climate models using data-driven approaches.
  • Perform climate simulations for urban areas.

Your profile must be :

  • PhD in Earth, Climate or Environmental Sciences (or equivalent).
  • Demonstrated analytical skills and capabilities to conduct research in areas related to urban physics and handling of large-scale datasets.
  • Strong knowledge in handling of large-scale datasets.
  • Experience in programming languages (Python, Fortran, etc.)
