[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral fellowship, Ocean at fine scales, 2 years, France

Dear colleagues,

We kindly ask you to pass along this advertisement to students and postdocs
that may be interested.

The LabexMER (Brest, France) offers a post-doctoral program that allows
young scientists to propose their own research project in marine
sciences (within the LabexMER research axes) and carry them out in one
or several LabexMER laboratories. The postdoctoral appointment is for a
period of two years. Additional support is available for travel
expenses, equipment, and supplies. Work contract will include national
health and dental insurance, as well as retirement and unemployment

Of particular interest is the Axis 1 of the LabexMER, labelled "The
Ocean Engine at Very High Resolution", which gathers scientific experts
in the observation (remote and in situ), the numerical modeling and
theoretical understanding of a wide range of processes:
mesoscale/submesoscale turbulence, internal gravity waves, surface
gravity waves, air sea interactions, and, biophysical interactions.
Recent work has in particular higlighted a new vision that emphasizes
the important impact of submesoscales on the large-scale ocean dynamics.
The LabexMer has contributed much to this vision and is now searching
for candidates that will significantly contribute to the above-listed thematics
or complementing ones.
The scientific environment in the LabexMer is highly dynamical and
collaborative with most scientists being involved in cutting edge
international scientific missions (SWOT, Sentinel missions, ...)
requiring a gathering of expertise about the processes just listed and
their interactions.

More information about the modalities of application can be found here:
Please contact Axis 1 coordinators for more information:
