The aim is to produce new knowledge about the importance of the physical and social environmental exposures for the health of the population by developing and extending algorithms and tools to spatially mine the data sources. Further information may be found at http://www.bertha.au.dk (http://www.bertha.au.dk/)

The Department of Environmental Science
Department of Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary department under the Faculty of Science & Technology at Aarhus University. The expertise ranges from social science, geography, economics and policy analysis to mathematical modelling, physics, chemistry, and microbiology. Both pure and applied research is conducted on some of the major challenges facing society, such as pollution and pollution control mechanisms, management of land, soil, water, air and biodiversity, protection of ecosystem services and climate change. Advisory services within these areas are offered to ministries and other stakeholders. Currently, about 145 staff and PhD-students are working at the department. Further information may be found at http://www.envs.au.dk (http://www.envs.au.dk/).

The selected candidate will be affiliated with the Section for Atmospheric Environment. The work will mainly concern assessments of exposure to airborne pollen and fungal spores. However, the candidate is also expected to take active part in development, testing and implementation of personal exposure monitoring devices based on low-cost, as well as in conducting sensors applied for measuring biological markers for health effects related to environmental exposures. The post doc will be within the framework of the big data centre BERTHA. Tasks will include 1) Collection and analyses of available pollen and fungal spore measurements useful for exposure assessment in Denmark 2) Evaluating modelled pollen data from the long-range transport DEHM 3) Conducting campaign measurements of pollen in Denmark 4) Deriving a pollen and fungal spore exposure database for Denmark 5) Contributing to the practical preparation and conduction of personal exposure monitoring of air pollution using low-cost sensor based devices. The first task is expected to include close cooperation with the NGO Asthma and Allergy Denmark who conduct the routine monitoring of pollen and fungal spores in Denmark. The second task will be carried out in close cooperation with the air pollution modelling group in the Department who has recently implemented a model module in the long-range transport model DEHM. The third task will include practical design and carrying out of pollen and fungal spore measurements supplementary to the routine monitoring in Denmark. For this a sampler in the department will be used together with devices made available by other groups in Denmark. Task four is supposed to combine the data from the previous three tasks to construct a database for exposure assessment. The fifth task will be carried out in close cooperation with a newly hired PhD student working in the area. The work will take place in close cooperation with other researchers in the department working with topics like atmospheric measurements (routine monitoring as well as field studies), and environmental geography. An important output of the work is expected to be scientific papers in peer reviewed journals. This dissemination is expected to take place in close cooperation with the BERTHA researchers and other researchers in the department.

The work carried out in the section Atmospheric Environment includes studies on the physical and chemical processes that control the level and trend of air quality development, and atmospheric deposition. The section furthermore undertakes national air quality monitoring tasks, and it is active in the area of research, consultancy, monitoring and teaching. The research in the section has focus on the impact of air quality on human health, nature, aquatic environment and interaction with climate.
