Post-doctoral position : Marine sediment time series synthesis over the
last 40 ky

Duration : 22 months (1^st of March 2017 - 31^st of January 2019)

A post-doctoral candidateis seeked in the framework of the ACCLIMATE
(Elucidating the Causes and Effects of _A_tlanti_c_ _C_ircu_l_at_i_on
Changes through _M_odel-D_a_ta In_te_gration) ERC project. The project
purpose is to elucidate the links between Atlantic circulation changes
and climatic changes, in particular across the rapid climatic changes
observed in marine sediment and ice cores over the last 40 thousand
years. The ACCLIMATE project’s approach is to develop a paleoclimate
data assimilation scheme using an isotope-enabled climate model. The
data essentially consist in a set of consistently dated deep-sea
sediment records of carbon and oxygen isotopic ratios over the last 40
ky. The successful candidate will join a research group consisting of 2
senior scientists, 2 postdoctoral assistants, one PhD student, one
research engineer and 2 technicians.

The candidate will take part in the building of a database synthesizing
available and newly generated Atlantic deep-sea core data over the last
40 ky. This data synthesis is being built with a particular focus on (i)
the establishment of coherent chronologies and (ii) the quantification
of uncertainties related to age scales and tracer interpretations. The
records are selected according to quality, temporal resolution, and
available dating constraints. The candidate will develop visualization
tools (R or Matlab scripts) to ease the comparison of records over
depth, latitude and longitude transects prior to data assimilation.

Applicants should hold a PhD in paleoclimatology and have experience
with paleoclimate reconstructions, chronological issues in climatic
archives or data syntheses, have strong writing skills and a
demonstrated ability to work in a team environment.

This postdoctoral position will be hosted at the Laboratoire des
Sciences et de l’Environnement at Gif-sur-Yvette and will be awarded the
standard CNRS postdoctoral stipend.

Applicants should submit a CV, contact information for three references,
a statement of research and interests, and two relevant publications, by
e-mail before March 20 2017.
