The Environmental Geochemistry and Atmospheric Research (EGAR) group is specialized
in air quality assessment and monitoring, using state of the art air pollutant instrumentation
combined with innovative monitoring strategies based on sensor networks. The team has strong
expertise in source apportionment to aid in the identification of major sources impacting air
quality degradation, which in turn supports the implementation of mitigation strategies. Similarly,
EGAR is experienced in health impact assessment to translate air pollution impacts into
premature mortality and morbidity outcomes, easier to understand by the general population.
This combination of monitoring tools and methodologies provides the ideal framework to assess
the effectiveness of innovative air quality monitoring and modelling tools.
The EGAR team has a fully equipped and running laboratory for air quality monitoring.
Instruments available for the proposal are high-volume samplers, stationary and portable
cascade impactors (ELPI+, Berner, PCIS), particle counters and sizers (CPC, NanoScan,
SMPS), handheld particle number and black carbon monitors (DiscMini, AE51), one
nanoparticle aerosol sampler (NAS), portable gaseous monitors (CO, CO2), and full facilities for
particle characterisation in the lab (ICP-MS, ICP-AES, ion chromatography), and receptor
modelling expertise for source apportionment analysis.
The Institute of Environmental Assessment and Water Research (IDAEA) is an
environmental science institute devoted to the study of the human footprint on the biosphere.
Much of the research work at this institute is centred on two of the great environmental
challenges of our time: cleanliness and availability of water and quality of air.
Founded in 2008 as a member of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), the
Institute brings together a wide range of expertise in environmental science. It is organized
under two Departments (Environmental Chemistry and Geosciences), established with a strong
record of publication in top scientific journals, leading international projects, membership on
international committees, and adopting a high-profile contribution to the identification and
remediation of environmental problems.
IDÆA has demonstrated strengths in the analysis of organic pollutants and their impact on
ecosystems, the study and management of water resources, the development of multivariate
resolution algorithms in chemometrics, and in the study of inhalable particulate matter and toxic
IDÆA has been recently awarded with the distinctive Centre of Excellence Severo Ochoa
(2020-2023), distinction that indicates the high-quality scientific leadership and global impact of
the work developed at the centre.
We offer a diverse and inclusive environment where no discrimination against disability, gender,
nationality, religion or sexual orientation will occur during the selection process.
