Job vacancy: post-doctoral position in LATMOS-IPSL (Paris, France) for
coupled ocean-atmosphere regional modelling (12 months).

This job is available immediately, and must start before the end of
August 2011.

Employer is Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI).
In the framework of the AMMA project on the West African Monsoon, the
intraseasonal variability of the Eastern Tropical Atlantic, and more
particularly of the coastal rainfall in the northern Gulf of Guinea
during boreal spring, remains to be thoroughly investigated. Among the
physical processes suspected to be at the origin of the flaws still
observed in the models for this region, the coupling between the oceanic
and atmospheric boundary layers are suspected to be decisive. The
influence of the west-african continental surface could also be
important, through a southward low-atmosphere meridional circulation
which could come and partially control the variability of surface
southeasterlies in the Gulf of Guinea.

We are requiring a post-doctoral candidate in Meteorology or
Oceanography to conduct coupled simulations of the 2000 - 2009 period
(March to August), with the regional atmospheric model WRF coupled to a
regional version of the ocean model NEMO. Physical processes responsible
for the ocean-atmosphere-continent interactions will be investigated in
the simulations through basic linear statistical analyses, and
hypotheses tested by performing sensivity experiments and idealized

Qualification / skills: Ph.D. in meteorology or oceanography, with in
addition a good experience in programming (especially in fortran). A
previous experience with WRF will have priority. Salary between 2000 and
2500 euros / month (depending on experience).

Candidates should send their CV and motivations as soon as possible and
before July 1st, 2011 by e-mail to Gaëlle de Coëtlogon:
