We're looking for a postdoc to join a CNRS-MOMENTUM project on the coastal carbon cycle changes during large sea level changes in the past (Deglatiation) and futur. It is a 2-year position at LSCE (near Paris) in climate modelling using an intermediate complexity model.
Nous cherchons un(e) postodc pour rejoindre un projet CNRS-MOMENTUM sur le cycle du carbone côtier pendant les grands changements de niveau marin qui se sont déroulés dans le passé (déglaciation) et qui pourraient également avoir lieu dans le futur. Il s'agit d'un postdoc de deux ans de modélisation avec un modèle de complexité intermédiaire qui sera basé au LSCE.
The LSCE is offering a postdoc position as part of a new CNRS project to understand how large sea level variations affect the carbon cycle. Today, coastal oceans take up part of the CO2 from anthropogenic emissions, constituting a carbon sink, and attenuating the atmospheric CO2 rise. But the coastal oceans undergo drastic modifications during major sea level changes of several tens of meters such as during the last deglaciation which started ~18,000 years ago. This project aims at understanding how the coastal carbon cycle is modified during these large sea level changes, to assess the status of the coastal oceans as carbon sinks or sources in the past by confronting model runs to paleoceanographic data.
The post-doc will join the CLIM (climate modelling) team and is expected to actively contribute to the bi- monthly team meetings. He/she will also benefit from the numerous scientific seminars organised weekly at LSCE. Project meetings with all participants will be held once a year.
The position is funded for 2 years by the CNRS, and will start in October 2019.
