We are looking for one candidate for the following project: PhD project: Partitioning of Meridional Energy Transport in the Ocean and Atmosphere Profile: Master degree in physical climatology, oceanography or meteorology and have some expertise in data analysis and numerical modelling. Duration: 3 years (net salary from euros), starting on September or October 2016. Host Laboratory: LOCEAN – UMR 7159 (https://www.locean-ipsl.upmc.fr), PARVATI research group (Climate variability and impacts), campus Jussieu, Paris (France). Employer information: LOCEAN is a joint research laboratory of Université Pierre et Marie Curie UPMC, Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle , Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD). It houses roughly 150 collaborators, two thirds of which being either researchers, university teachers, Ph.D. students or post-doctoral fellows. The LOCEAN is a leading institute in ocean modelling, responsible for the development of the NEMO ocean model, which is widely distributed around the world. The LOCEAN participate within the IPSL (Institut Pierre Simon Laplace) federation to the IPCC assessments reports, notably with the IPSL coupled model. The LOCEAN has developed several research activities concerning the decadal climate predictions using the IPSL coupled model. LOCEAN is also very active in sea-going observational programs in several regions including the polar Northern and Southern oceans. It has been involved in numerous international programs. The LOCEAN is also leading many research programs that evaluate the impacts of changing climate for human activities, and the improvement of climate services. Job description: the aim of the PhD is to study the response of the coupled ocean-atmosphere system to energy balance disturbances. The PhD will focus on the imbalance between Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere driven by the heat transport due to Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (MOC) or global warming. In particular, we seek to understand how this response is divided between ocean and atmosphere, and the partitioning and compensation of the oceanic and atmospheric meridional energy transports. For this, the PhD will study the response to the same disturbance in a hierarchy of ocean-atmosphere models: • Full atmosphere and mixed-layer Ocean (energy transport in the ocean constant), • Full atmosphere and mixed-layer Ocean including the transport carried by Ekman currents, • Full atmosphere coupled to full ocean. The model experiments will be in aqua-planet (global ocean, so without gyres) or realistic (including continents) configurations, to establish a link between theoretical results and those from the ocean-atmosphere models. The candidate will conduct numerical experiments and analyze the climate processes behind the partitioning and compensation of the oceanic and atmospheric transports. Contact : Francis Codron (email@example.com) and Guillaume Gastineau (firstname.lastname@example.org). Application:(i) CV, (ii) statement of interests, (iii) contact information for one of two references. Deadline June 4th, 2016 to be sent by email to F. Codron and G. Gastineau. ——— Guillaume Gastineau LOCEAN/IPSL Université Pierre et Marie Curie Paris, France
