Invitation to the EHS Symposium 2022

Irena Kaspar-Ott

Umweltbedingte Krankheitslasten - Grundlagen, klinische Auswirkungen, Umweltzusammenhänge

Das Dritte Augsburger EHS-Symposium lädt sowohl Grundlagenforscher:innen, klinische und nicht-klinische Ärzt:innen und Wissenschaftler:innen sowie Forschende im Bereich der Environmental Health Sciences ein, aus ihrer aktuellen Forschung zu berichten. Im Vordergrund steht die exemplarische Darstellung der Ursache-Wirkungszusammenhänge mit besonderem Fokus auf das kardiovaskuläre System sowie Krebserkrankungen.

AELCM Messbox Christian Koller

Student or research assistant wanted!

Working hours:

30-40 hours/month


Your tasks:

  • assistance in building a low-cost sensor network for the air pollution monitoring
  • assistance in the technical design and crafting of measurement devices

Your profile:

  • Student in (Electrical) Engineering, Physics, Design or similar with an interest in electrical engineering
  • Basics or interest in CAD/3D-Printing/PCB-Design
  • Experiences with microcontroller boards (e. g. Arduino, Pycom) are welcome
  • Know-How in soldering is welcome
  • An independent, structured, precise and results-oriented work ethos

Homeoffice is possible. However, as the job entails a bunch of lab work heavily reliant on in-house devices (e. g. 3D-Printer, soldering station), working occasionally in the lab is inevitable. Travel expenses which result from lab work can possibly be refunded. A PC workstation with CAD software (e. g. OpenSCAD, Autodesk Fusion 360, FreeCAD) is available and can also be used remotely.

Press release about our research

"The interplay of ozone pollution, air temperature, climate and human health is being researched by the Augsburg junior scientist Sally Jahn at the Chair of Regional Climate Change and Health. Now she also presented her project at a press conference at one of the largest meetings in the geosciences, the European Geoscience Union (EGU) General Assembly." Click here to read more.
