Post Doctoral Position related to the EUPORIAS project funded by the FP7
of the European Union : "Seasonal-to-decadal climate (S2D)
predictions towards climate services”.

Work description : The work consist in preparing the Meteo-France
contribution to the different deliverables in close collaboration with
another contractual researcher recruited for the project, permanent
staff of the Climatology Department, partners of the project and the
stakeholder group. The objective is to develop a prototype of climate
service for water resource management and energy. A special attention
will be paid to the feasibility of implementing a new operational
Hydropower Climate Service Prototype and the identification of
logistical and cost implications of running such a new operational
forecast. First, the prototype had been run in hind-cast mode to see how
the system would have worked during a past period. Usefulness and
limitations had been assessed. This evaluation/validation work is
encouraging and needs to be finalized. The work will continue in the
next months with the preparation of the technical environment for
running the prototype in forecast mode and provide forecasts for several
months ahead. Last a stakeholder-specific communication strategy will be
developed and implemented with respect of the climate service
