Description

  • Organisation/Company: CNRS
  • Research Field: Environmental science › Earth science Environmental science › Global change
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 30/09/2022 23:59 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › TOULOUSE
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 35
  • Offer Starting Date: 16/01/2023
  • The postdoc will be in charge of the studies based on MOCAGE-CTM model consising of: • setting up, running and evaluating MOCAGE-CTM simulations • analysing the results and communicating these results (presentations, publications).

    The position is proposed in the frame of the project PyroStrat funded by the ANR (French research council) from January 2022 to December 2025. The general objective of the project is to quantify the impact of the emissions from megafires reaching the stratosphere (i.e. pyrocumulonimbus) on the stratospheric composition and radiative balance at seasonal and interannual scales. PyroStrat research studies rely on the analysis of various types of observations and models. In this project, the contribution of the CNRM laboratory, which will be the work of the postdoc with the support of CNRM researchers, is to study the effect of pyrocumulonimbus on stratospheric ozone depletion. For this purpose, we will use the MOCAGE-CTM global chemistry- transport model developed at CNRM to study the composition of the troposphere and the stratosphere. MOCAGE-CTM numerical experiments will be run to simulate case studies of megafires and also over a the last decade when most of the megafires took place.

    The work will be carried out in the CNRM laboratory in Toulouse (France). The successful candidate will join the COMETS team (https:// www. umr- cnrm.fr/spip.php?article371) which is the Météo-France research team in charge of the study of the chemical composition (reactive gases, aerosols and green-house gases) of the troposphere and of the stratosphere from the global scale to the regional scale. This team is composed of 8-9 people working on the tracer transport, the chemical processes, the air composition tendency from multi-annual to multi-decadal time range, and the interactions of climate change with air composition.

    Eligibility criteria

    - some kwowledge on atmospheric chemistry, - some experience with atmospheric numerical modelling and/or with complex codes on high performance computers (HPC) - computing experience in particular of Linux, Fortran and Python, - at least a CEFR B2 level in English language (speaking, understanding and writting) or an equivalent level.
