Postdoctoral fellowship in climate (sea ice) modelling available
at UCL, Louvain-la-Neuve
The Georges Lemaître Centre for Earth and Climate Research
(TECLIM; www.uclouvain.be/teclim) / Earth and Life Institute of
the Université catholique de Louvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium)
is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for participation to the EU FP7
project COMBINE (Comprehensive Modelling of the Earth System for
Better Climate Prediction and Projection; www.combine-project.eu).
The research will consist in:
1. contributing to the coupling of the new version of the
Louvain-la-Neuve sea ice model, LIM3 (www.climate.be/lim), with
the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL, Paris, France;
www.ipsl.fr) climate general circulation model (GCM),
2. participating to the validation of the coupled model, with
focus on sea ice, and
3. quantifying the feedbacks related to sea ice in climate
change projections performed with the coupled model.
This work will be done in close collaboration with IPSL. Frequent
visits to this lab are expected.
The candidates should have a PhD in physical climatology,
oceanography or marine glaciology. Expertise in conduct and/or
analysis of GCM simulations will be a plus.
The position is offered for about 2 years and will be available in
February 2011, but the start date is flexible. Applicant review
will start immediately.
Applicants should send (i) a statement of research experience,
qualifications and interests, (ii) a complete CV including list of
publications, and (iii) contact information for three references
