Date Wed, 5 Apr 2017 08:47:21 +0200

PhD grant on modelling Arctic climate change and its impacts, at CERFACS, Toulouse, France

As part of the APPLICATE EU project, CERFACS is seeking a PhD student for 36 months to advance our understanding of the mechanisms by which Arctic climate change, and more specifically Arctic sea ice decline, can impact the mid-latitude weather and climate. 

APPLICATE (Advanced Prediction in Polar regions and beyond: modelling, observing system design and LInkages associated with ArctiC ClimATE change) is a 4-year project, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 program, and coordinated by the Alfred Wegener Institute, Bremerhaven (16 partners), that aims at advancing our ability to model and predict the Arctic climate system along with its impacts on the weather and climate in lower latitudes (

The successful candidate will perform and analyze climate model experiments, based on the CNRM-CM6 global coupled model, to identify the oceanic and atmospheric linkages between the Arctic region and the northern mid-latitudes that result from Arctic sea ice decline. The PhD grant is for 36 months, starting in October, with a net monthly salary of about 1800 EUR. 

Required qualifications:

  • Completed MSc or equivalent (5 years) in atmospheric sciences, oceanography or a related field
  • Experience with computational programming 
  • Demonstrated written and oral communication skills necessary to work in a multidisciplinary team environment, author scientific reports and publications, and deliver scientific presentations.

Applicants should send by email to  and to :

1) A statement that details the candidate’s research experience, qualification and interests

2) A complete CV 

3) Two letters of recommendation 

The call is open until the position is filled.
