PhD Student Position – Atmospheric dispersion in stable conditions.
The Laboratory of Environment Transfers Modelling (LMTE) and the Laboratoire 
d’Aérologie (LA) are seeking a PhD candidate. The 3-year position is funded by 
the French “Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique” (CEA). The PhD candidate is 
anticipated to commence in September or October 2015.
LMTE is a research group of the CEA, aiming at the study of the dispersion of 
plumes from an emission area. For more details, see
LA is a research Lab. from the University of Toulouse and “Centre National de 
la Recherche Scientifique”. For more details, see<>
The topic of the research is to study the atmospheric dispersion, in stable 
conditions, in the CEA-Cadarache area, and in particular the impact of local 
orography. The study will be based on WRF+FLEXPART modeling, and observations 
gained in a field campaign conducted in winter 2013. A more detailed 
description (in French) can be found at:
The main working place will be at LMTE in Cadarache, France (43°69’N, 5°76’E), 
with some stays in Toulouse, France (43°33’N, 1°28’E).

Eligibility: To be eligible, the applicant must hold a Masters degree in 
atmospheric science or closely related disciplines.

Ranking criteria: Knowledge in boundary-layer meteorology and atmospheric 
dispersion is valuable. Previous experience in atmospheric modelling, at local 
and/or meso-scale,

would be appreciated. At least adequate English language skills are required. 
Ability to acquire oral and written French would be appreciated.
Tax free stipend is about 19 000 Euros per annum.

Applications (consisting of a statement of interest in- and suitability for a
