[Met-jobs] Post-doctoral research position in chemistry-transport modelling, Paris

From Slimane Bekki <>
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 16:00:44 +0200

Post-doctoral research associate in regional atmospheric chemistry modelling, LATMOS-IPSL, Paris

Full time: 1 year (initially)
Starting Date: flexible although the position is available immediately

Intensive field campaigns devoted to atmospheric sulphur chemistry and oxygen isotopic anomalies in sulphate have been conducted in the last few years over the Antarctic continent and next to volcanoes. One of the examples is the OPALE (Oxidant Production over Antarctica Land and its Export) campaign conducted at a coastal measurement site (Dumont d'Urville) and at the Concordia site on the Antarctic plateau. The analysis of the campaign data is being carried out using a range of numerical models, in particular chemistry-transport models.

The successful applicant is expected to drive the modelling activity of these campaigns and take responsibility for the relevant model developments and runs. This work will be undertaken in close collaboration with other project partners in France (LGGE, Grenoble; ISTEP, Paris) and in UK (BAS, Cambridge). The results are expected to be presented at national and international meetings as well as published in the peer-reviewed literature.

Applicants should have a PhD in atmospheric science and ideally a strong numerical modelling background. Demonstrated skill/proficiency in, at least, two of the following areas is required: running complex model codes, advanced knowledge of numerical modelling and statistics, skills in scientific programming (e.g., Fortran) and graphical/mathematical packages such as IDL and/or Matlab. Experience in operating chemistry-transport models model is also desirable.

Interested applicants should send by e-mail a letter of interest, a CV, and the names of three contactable referees to Slimane Bekki ( and Joel Savarino ( Please direct informal enquiries to the same contacts.
