Forwarded from CLIMLIST... Extreme Weather Expertises (EXWEXS) offers a One year Post-Doctoral position based in Paris – France. Applications are invited for one postdoctoral research fellowship starting end 2013 or beginning 2014, in Paris, France, to work on the following Impact Of Anthropogenic Deforestation And Heat Release On Local And Regional Atmospheric Circulation Over Tropical Africa (12-months contract). EXWEXS is a private company performing high level climatic and atmospheric diagnostics related to extreme weather events and dramatic meteorological changes associated to environmental modification. The up to date scientific knowledge is one of our most important quality requirement. Consequently, all the studies performed by the company are made under the scientific approach and ethic including criticism of the results. For the purpose, all the information and methods are used by EXWEXS, from in-situ data collection, remote data and high resolution modelling. The subject proposed is associated to a client request about the local and regional meteorological effect of the implementation of an industrial plant replacing an African tropical forest as well as the effect of an important upward surface heat release from the industrial processes. In order to complete the study, the applicant will achieve a bibliographic review about the deforestation and the surface heat release followed by some sensitivity studies performed with the WRF atmospheric model within a high performance computing center. A particular focus on the effect of several terrestrial surface conditions (land, trees – green covers -, heat release) will lead to define a modelling plan for the sensitivity studies. The candidates should have knowledge on numerical atmospheric modelling with the WRF model, and land surface effects on the atmosphere (surface turbulent heat flux releases). They should have a previous experience with the high performance computing and should be familiar with the Fortran programming language, the Linux environment (Shell), with data analysis and some graphic softwares (for instance: NCL, Ferret, Grads, Python,...). Knowledge in tropical meteorology will be appreciated. Education: Phd in atmospheric science or equivalent with less than 3 years after Phd. The successful candidate will be based in the offices of our client, in Paris. The net monthly salary will vary, depending on qualification. Application should be done by email by sending a resume, a motivation letter, and the names, telephone and email address of 2 referees to: <email@example.com>.
