Two research engineer / PDRA positions at IPSL on climate data analysis and 

Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL is looking for two research 
engineers / post-doctoral research assistants to address the challenges posed 
by the massive amounts of data generated by upcoming high-resolution climate 
simulations at IPSL and elsewhere. The sheer volume of this data jeopardizes 
the feasibility of its production and scientific analysis, calling for 
strategies to reduce the volume of data while maintaining its scientific 

In order to address this challenge, lossy compression of model output will be 
explored, with a focus on :
position 1 : characterizing scientifically acceptable loss of raw information
position 2 : identifying and optimizing lossy compression algorithmms that 
maintain the scientific quality of the data

For both positions, familiarity with computing and programming (Unix/Linux, 
shell, C/Fortan, Python) is required. The ideal candidate should be able to 
work in English and in a collaborative environment. He/she communicates well in 
oral and written about his/her ideas, problems and results. For position 1, 
experience in analysis of climate simulations is a plus, as well as statistical 
skills. For position 2, experience/knowledge of data compression techniques is 
a plus.

Send CV and cover letter to and
The positions will be filled as soon as possible.
