As part of the preparation for the coming Strateole 2 campaigns using superpressure balloons to study processes the Tropical Tropopause Layer (TTL), we are inviting applications for a one-year post-doc, to work on two issues:

- an operational task consisting in analyzing the accuracy of balloon trajectory forecasts calculated from the ECMWF forecasts;

- an investigation of turbulence and mixing in the upper TTL, using past observations from superpressure balloons, radiosondes and radar measurements.

The net monthly salary based on the French academic scale will depend upon experience, from about 2000 € to 3100 €. Further information may be found in the attached description (in French and English).

Potential candidates are invited to contact Riwal Plougonven ( and/or Richard Wilson ( for more information. We wish for the position to start at the end of the present year if possible.
