Postdoctoral Position at LOCEAN-IPSL, UPMC (France)

> POSTDOCTORAL position in ocean modeling available

> LOCEAN-IPSL, UPMC
>
> The LOCEAN Laboratory, University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, seeks > applicants for a postdoctoral position in tropical ocean modeling. A > Ph.D. in oceanography is required, as well as a strong research > experience in running an OGCM. We encourage applications from > researchers interested in improving simulation of upper tropical ocean > stratification and circulation, and in understanding physics of tropical > eastern basin upwellings and their interactions with the atmosphere. >
> The researcher will help conduct a modeling effort directed at improving > the realism of the OGCM simulations within the regions of the eastern > tropical Atlantic basin characterized by warm biases. A regional set up > of the NEMO OGCM will mainly be used and further developed to > investigate hypotheses associated with the warm bias problem. >
> The project will be carried out in collaboration with colleagues from > LOCEAN and IPSL working on the topic, and with the international team of > the EU FP7 Project « PREFACE » focusing on the issue.
>
> The framework of research is particularly rich and favorable, thanks to > an exceptional ensemble of complementary models, configurations, > observations, tools and methodologies, currently used for studying the > eastern basin biases, at IPSL and within PREFACE.
>
> This position is for two years and is open until fulfilled. A response > before October 22d, 2014 would be appreciated.
>
> Please send an application with a statement of research interests, > curriculum vitae, and contact information for three professional > references to Dr. Alban Lazar (alban.lazar@upmc.fr
> ) and contact him directly with any > inquiries about the position.
