The Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace offers a post-doctoral position of 18 month (extensible up to 30 month) to assess and improve the new IPSL atmospheric component. This model is based on the new LMDZ6 physical package and the new Dynamico dynamical core on an icosahedral grid. The Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace (IPSL) is a multi-laboratory institute in and around Paris. It hosts one of the leading climate modelling centre which develops the Earth System Model IPSL-CM and its various components. This development is a collaborative effort involving around 100 persons. A new physical package has been developed for LMDZ6, the atmospheric component of the IPSL-CM6 Earth System Model that will contribute to the 6th phase of the CMIP project. A new global dynamical core DYNAMICO has been developed that is well adapted to massively parallel high performance computers. DYNAMICO uses a non-structured icosahedral grid and is currently running at the standard resolution of the model (about 2°). The aim of the post-doctoral position is twofold. Firstly it is to asses and improve the LMDZ6 model with the new dynamical core, to identify and to understand the differences with the previous grid-point, latitude-longitude dynamical core. Secondly, it is to increase the horizontal resolution up to 0.5° (or finer), to assess the performance of the model and adjust the parameterizations as needed to the finer grid. In particular, scale-aware stochastic triggering of convection will be used and improved. The analysis may be focused on specific phenomena, like cyclones, depending on the interest of the candidate. The final version of this model will be used to perform prescribed SST simulations that will contribute to the HighResMIP project. Applicants should have a PhD in geosciences or physics, preferably in meteorology, atmospheric or climate physics. Candidates must have experience in numerical modelling with programming languages FORTRAN or C in a UNIX environment. The candidate will be recruited for 18 months (extensible up to 30 months) starting in Autumn 2016, with a net monthly salary around 2100-2400 euros, commensurate with experience. This includes social services and health insurance. The work will be conducted at IPSL under the main supervision of Frédéric Hourdin, Thomas Dubos and Jean-Louis Dufresne. Contact for applications: Applications should include a vita, a statement of interests and the names of at least two references including e-mail addresses and telephone numbers. Applications should be submitted by e-mail to email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. We expect to fill the position before summer 2016, as soon as enough qualified candidates have applied.
