Postdoctoral fellowship in Earth System Modelling

We  seek a  motivated  candidate  to  carry  out  development, testing  and  
evaluation  of  the 
Earth System Model IPSL-ESM and  to produce  simulations  that will be analyzed 
within  the 
framework of CMIP6 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Projects Phase 6). The 
developments 
will  include  a  more  physical  parameterization  of  dust  emissions  taking 
 into  account  its 
mineralogy. The evaluation will  focus on a newly added parameterization of  
the secondary 
organic  aerosol  (SOA).  A  number  of  sensitivity  studies  will  be  
carried  out  to  quantify  the 
radiative  forcing  contribution  of  each  aerosol  component  and  how  they  
modify  the 
atmospheric  temperature  structure. Specific  diagnostics  will  be  developed 
 to  compare 
simulated  concentrations  and  deposition  of  aerosol  components  to  
observations.  These 
diagnostics  will  serve  for  the  evaluation  of  all  ESMs  from  the  
CRESCENDO  project.  The 
successful candidate will take part in international meetings, workshops and 
reporting.
