The research work will focus on understanding the Arctic system and its integration into the global system. The successful candidate may focus on the dynamics of sea ice; on the interactions between the atmosphere, the pack ice, and the ocean; on the role of small-scale processes; or on the mechanisms involved in climate trends and seasonal to decadal variability of the thermal, haline contents, and of the large-scale circulation in the Arctic Basin.
Position duties include:
- Conduct research on understanding the Arctic system and its integration into the global system (i.e. dynamics of sea ice; interactions between the atmosphere, sea ice, and the ocean; on the role of small-scale processes; circulation large scale in the Arctic Basin, etc.);
- Identify and implement the most appropriate approach to conduct this research based on idealized or realistic modelling tools (ocean and/or sea ice, and/or coupled models), on in situ or satellite measurements, or on a combination of the two approaches;
- Contribute to the development and implementation of these tools with the members (engineers, technicians, researchers) of the laboratory that may involve developing model configurations, defining future observation campaigns, or future instrumental developments specific to this region;
- Setting up research projects in response to calls for tenders (national, European, and international);
- Ensure the supervision of Master, thesis, and postdoctoral students;
- Contribute to the influence of the laboratory through appropriate scientific production; and
- Expand the collaborative network of national and international laboratories.
Required qualifications include:
- PhD in physical oceanography, with post-doctoral experience, preferably abroad;
- Skills in scientific research in the field described by the job description;
- Knowledge of geophysical fluid dynamics;
- Advanced data analysis methods;
- Knowledge of in situ measurement techniques in oceanography;
- Knowledge of scientific computing;
- Proficient level of spoken English and strong writing skills in English; and
- Recognized scientific expertise.
