The Integrated Ocean Wave project (IOWAGA) team at Ifremer is looking for a researcher or engineer to perform a detailed testing and re-tuning of model parameterizations based on a new implementation of non-linear wave-wave interactions, and a general validation of the IOWAGA wave model hindcasts and forecasts with remote sensing and in situ data. This work is jointly funded by the ERC and the U.S. NOPP program on numerical wave model improvement. As a consequence, a strong interaction with other groups is expected in the U.S., France, and elsewhere. A solid knowledge on numerical wave modelling is expected. The work is also closely linked to several initiatives for the estimation of air-sea fluxes ( ) and the interpretation of remote sensing data.

Ifremer is already a world leader in numerical wave modelling, especially in terms of physical parameterization. The work to be performed is expected to lead to significant model improvements, allowing new engineering and science applications. Scientific publications should naturally come out of this effort.

The position is located in Brest, France, and the contract duration is 18 months. The position is open until filled, and work could start as early as October 1st, 2012.

Applicants should send their resumes (including references) via e-mail to the address below:
