Biogeochemical-Physical Oceanographer Postdoctoral Position near Paris

The LSCE (Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnment) near
Paris invites applications for a biogeochemical or physical oceanographer
to work with ocean carbon cycle modelers in its Marine Biogeochemistry
group. The successful candidate will contribute to the scientific
evaluation of results from simulations using an eddying global ocean model
(NEMO), which includes ocean biogeochemistry (PISCES). The candidate’s
research will focus on interannual variability, particularly in the
Northern Atlantic. The candidate will analyze modes of variability and
assess their cascading effects on ocean biogeochemistry. He will evaluate
the magnitude of the feedbacks on the ocean uptake of CO2 by changes in
physical processes and vertical fluxes of organic carbon. The candidate
will further contribute to the development of advanced analysis tools.
Candidates should have a background in marine biogeochemistry or physical
oceanography with experience using FORTRAN 90 and Unix. Previous
experience in analysis of ocean model output, particularly using advanced
statistical tools is highly desirable. Experience with Ferret or Python
would be appreciated. Salary depends on experience as assessed by the
French CEA.  An 24-month contract is available, through the EU project
CarboChange , which focuses  on quantifying sources and sinks of carbon in
the ocean.  Please send a resume, a statement of research interest, and
the names of three references to Marion Gehlen, CEN Saclay, LSCE, L'Orme
des Merisiers, Bât. 712, F-91191 Gif-sur-Yvette, France (e-mail:
