Post-doc position at CNRM-GAME « MACC : Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate Interim Implementation » (16 months)In the framework of the FP7 collaborative project MACC-II (Monitoring Atmospheric Composition and Climate Interim Implementation, GMES atmosphere), CNRM-GAME (Météo-France and CNRS) opens a post-doctoral position of 16 months.
The research to be carried out is in the field of numerical modelling with the chemistry and transport model MOCAGE at the regional scale (air quality in Europe) in the framework of Météo-France’s contribution to MACC-II. Also chemical data assimilation will be a part of the work. Last, the post-doc will help for the coordination of the activities related to ensemble forecasting of air quality. All the tasks require good skills in FORTRAN and Unix, as well as in scientific writing. A previous experience in numerical modelling in atmospheric chemistry or in data assimilation is preferred.
The position starts between September 1st 2012 and November 1st 2012. The net salary proposed is in the range 2500€ to 3000€ per month, depending upon the candidate’s experience. The work will be carried out in Toulouse (France), at Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques (www.cnrm.meteo.fr). The candidate must hold a PhD, preferably in atmospheric sciences. Applications will be received by e-mail only before Friday June 22nd 2012. They must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and must contain a scientific CV, a letter of motivations, and possibly one or several letter(s) of recommendation.
