Research position to analyze new approaches to modeling planetary boundary layers and convection in Earth system models

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in cooperation with NOAA’s Geophysical 
Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to join a project on 
modeling planetary boundary layers and convection in Earth system models at GFDL, particularly for 
(1) analyzing interactions among large-scale circulation, eddy diffusivity, convective mass fluxes, 
and stratiform cloud macrophysics and microphysics; and (2) applying results of this analysis to 
improved simulation of tropical and sub-tropical cloud systems. The project is a collaboration with the 
Jet Propulsion Laboratory, UCLA, The University of Connecticut, and the National Center for Atmospheric 
Research, aimed at a unified approach to moist turbulent processes for boundary layers and deep convection. 
The position supports an ongoing multi-agency, interdisciplinary Climate Process Team. The team provides 
opportunities to blend modeling, theory, and observational perspectives. The Climate Process Team is 
tackling one of the most challenging problems in climate science and atmospheric prediction using 
one of the world’s leading modeling systems.

The successful applicant will work with Leo Donner and Ming Zhao at GFDL and multi-institutional team members.

Scientists with backgrounds in general circulation modeling, parameterization development, modeling 
of atmospheric processes, and diagnostic analysis of interactions between large-scale circulations 
and cloud processes are especially encouraged to apply. The initial appointment is for one year with 
the possibility of renewal subject to satisfactory performance and available funding. Candidates 
must have a PhD in atmospheric science or a related field. Complete applications, including a CV, 
a statement describing research interests and how they would contribute to the project, and contact

PhD Scholarship: Airborne microplastics in a changing climate, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

PhD Scholarship: Airborne microplastics in a changing climate, University of Canterbury, New Zealand

Microplastics – fragments of plastic smaller than 5 mm – have long been recognized as contaminants in the world’s 
oceans and rivers. In recent years, they have been detected in the atmosphere in a range of urban and remote locations[1]. 
Being small and of low density, microplastics are transported by winds around the Earth. By absorbing and scattering light, 
they also play a role in direct radiative processes, thus contributing to climate change[2]. Since the amount of plastic 
accumulated in landfills and the natural environment is projected to double over the next 30 years, airborne microplastic 
pollution and associate climate impacts are set to increase.

This project will explore the role of airborne microplastics in a changing climate. We have recently implemented 
microplastics as a class of atmospheric aerosol into a global climate model. This project will involve running 
model simulations to explore the possible range of microplastic radiative forcing and associated climate impacts 
under different scenarios. Opportunities to participate in field and lab work may also arise.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in programming (e.g. Python, Fortran and working in a High 
Performance Computing environment), and a Masters degree (or equivalent) in physics, chemistry, environmental 
science or a related discipline. Expertise in atmospheric and/or optical physics is desirable. Strong written and 
verbal communication skills in English are essential. 

The studentship is fully funded for three years (including fees) and will offer opportunities for travel. 
The successful candidate will be based in the School of Physical and Chemical Sciences at the University of 
Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. We offer a vibrant, friendly and supportive research environment and 
are housed in a brand-new purpose-built research facility. The project will be supervised by 
Associate Professor Laura Revell (https://laurarevell.org/).

To apply, please first check your eligibility for PhD study at the University of Canterbury 
(https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/study/qualifications-and-courses/phds-and-doctoral-degrees/doctor-of-philosophy/). 
Applications should include a cover letter, CV, contact details of two referees, academic transcript and evidence 
of proficiency in English (if applicable; see https://www.canterbury.ac.nz/enrol/international/english/).

Enquiries and applications to: Dr Laura Revell (laura.revell(at)canterbury.ac.nz)

Closing date: 17 July 2022

Value: $28 000 per annum, plus tuition fees covered.

Tenure: 3 years

Two Vacancies in the Hadley Centre: Terrestrial Carbon Cycle Scientist and Climate Mitigation Scientist


Dear All,

We invite application for two permanent scientist positions in the Earth System and Mitigation Science team of the 
Hadley Centre. Both roles are open to applicants at a range of levels from post graduate (“foundation scientist”) 
or recent PhD (“scientist”) to experienced post doc (“senior scientist”).

Terrestrial Carbon Cycle Scientist
Contact: eddy.robertson@metoffice.gov.uk
Closing date: 22 June 2022

You will be joining the Carbon Cycle group and your research will focus on land-based mitigation. Land-based mitigation 
involves managing land to increase the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere, for example via afforestation or by growing 
biofuels. It is an important mitigation method in policies aimed at reducing climate change and achieving net zero CO2 
emissions, but gaps remain in our knowledge of the potential for land-based mitigation and the possibilities of co-benefits 
or unintended consequences.

You will help improve the representation of land-based mitigation in UKESM and use the model to provide policy relevant 
information to UK government customers. In addition to CO2 impacts, land-based mitigation modifies the surface fluxes of 
energy and water and this can have a large impact on local climate. You will work with UK and EU project partners to 
quantifying these local climate impacts.
 

Climate Mitigation Scientist
Contact: camilla.mathison@metoffice.gov.uk
Closing date: 22 June 2022

You will be joining the Mitigation Science team where you will work on a range of projects that focus on the mitigation 
challenge presented by net zero and the Paris agreement targets. We provide customers with the latest scientific 
information and understanding to help inform policy and make better decisions to stay safe and thrive. Key to our work 
is the development and application of Simple Climate Models (SCMs) in collaboration with our partners, integrating the 
latest understanding of Earth systems processes, feedbacks and observational constraints. The team will bridge the 
gap between the complex Earth System Models and the detailed Integrated Assessment Models to synthesis the latest 
understanding of climate science to support policy making.

You will contribute to the development of our simple climate modelling capability, including adding new earth system 
processes to FaIR and developing tools to analyse new scenarios and their impacts.

For further details of both positions, and to apply, please visit our website: 
https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/about-us/careers/vacancies

We look forward to hearing from you,

Eddy Robertson and Camilla Mathison.

PhD position in Atmospheric Science in Kiruna, Sweden

We have open PhD positons in Kiruna.
One of these is directly related to atmospheric sciences.

You will be welcomed into an expanding group of researchers in Luleå University of Technology’s Division 
of Space Technology, in the atmospheric sciences subject. Our research topics include mass and energy fluxes 
within planets and their atmospheres, as well as snow, ice, and dirt in terrestrial and space environments. 
Researchers in Kiruna develop instruments for use on the ground, on balloons and on spacecraft and analyse 
data from Earth-observing satellites and deep space probes.

With the use of high-resolution satellite images, we want to determine areas affected by industrial pollution, 
by measuring spatial variations in the spectral albedo of snow. The spectral reflectivity of snow during 
springtime is determined by a combination of the snowpack properties and the amount of pollutants on and 
within the snow.  Satellite-borne multispectral imagers cover several channels in the visible and near 
infrared that are sensitive to variations in the reflectivity of snow. Reflectivity changes as a result of 
melting processes and the pollution load. The analysis of satellite images will be supported by field-site 
measurements of snow properties, radiative conditions, albedo and pollution load. Additionally, in a dedicated

PhD - Visual Data Science and Machine Learning for Ensemble Weather Forecasting

There is an open position for a PhD student at the University of Bergen on visual data science and 
machine learning for ensemble weather forecasting. Please share the announcement in your networks. 
Deadline 14 August.

https://www.jobbnorge.no/en/available-jobs/job/225034/phd-research-fellow-in-informatics-visual-data-science-to-master-complex-simulation-ensembles

The project focuses on understanding inherent uncertainties in weather prediction, where it is 
common to consult ensemble simulations. Extracting relevant information from such ensembles is 
challenging and depends on a successful condensation of the data. Especially when aiming at an 
interpretation of an entire ensemble in terms of domain-relevant features, such as cyclones, 
fronts, precipitation bands, etc., synthesising the data is very difficult and only possible 
on the basis of expert knowledge. We foresee that new visual data science methods from this 
project will significantly support the study of such rich ensembles.

Postdoctoral Research Scientist at LDEO of Columbia University

The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University (LDEO) located in Palisades, New York, invites 
applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist interested in the use of physically-informed machine 
learning to refine closures used in the calculation of atmospheric radiation. The position is part of the 
recent National Science Foundation Learning the Earth with Artificial intelligence and Physics (LEAP) Science 
and Technology Center (STC), https://leap.columbia.edu/, a large multi-institutional center effort meant to 
improve climate projections using novel artificial intelligence for better climate adaptation.

This project aims to revisit assumptions at the very core of calculations of radiative transfer calculations. 
The two-stream approximation used for computing the fate of sunlight, for example, makes assumptions about 
the angular distribution of light in the sky and how this co-varies with the light scattered from individual 
particles. Assumptions made almost half a century ago remain in wide use and are one cause of persistent 
radiation errors. This project will focus on using machine learning to revisit and revise assumptions like 
these, aspirationally using techniques such as equation discovery to ensure interpretability and distill 
the results for wide-spread use. The researcher is expected to present findings at national or international 
scientific conferences and to prepare publications for submission to scientific journals.

The postdoctoral research scientist will collaborate with a team of scientists including Prof. Robert Pincus 
(Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University), Prof. Carl Vondrick (Computer Science, Columbia University) 
and Prof. Laure Zanna (Courant Institute, New York University). The Postdoctoral Research Scientist will 
join both the vibrant research community at Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory and LEAP’s burgeoning 
transdisciplinary team at the interface between machine learning/data science and climate sciences, 
including research scientists, faculty members, PhD students, undergraduate and Bridge-to-PhD researchers.


Qualifications:
Candidates should have completed or be nearing completion of a Ph.D. in in Atmospheric, Climate, or 
Earth System Science, Chemistry, Applied Mathematics, Engineering, or related fields. Excellent communication 
skills are important and experience with machine learning is an advantage. One of the primary goals of 
LEAP is to increase the diversity in geosciences and data science, to be on par with the US population 
by the end of the Center lifetime. The Center will take proactive steps to reach its diversity goal. 
We thus particularly welcome applicants from underrepresented groups.

Appointment will be for 1 year with continuation pending progress and funding.

The search will remain open for at least 30 days after the ad appears and will continue until the position is filled.

Columbia University benefits are offered with this Officer of Research appointment.

Postdoc Position in Ocean Modeling at Stanford University

POSTDOC POSITION IN OCEAN MODELING

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in ocean modeling to work with Prof. Leif Thomas 
in the Department of Earth System Science at Stanford University. The successful candidate will pursue 
research to study the seasonal cycle of submesoscale turbulence in the subtropical gyres and the 
interaction of wind-driven inertial motions with eddies and fronts.  The main objective of the research 
is to improve our understanding of how submesoscale processes and wave-mean flow interactions transfer 
energy between mesoscale flows and small-scale turbulence and how this varies seasonally. The research 
is part of multi-institution collaborative projects, and will involve a combination of theory, numerical 
modeling, simulations to design observational field campaigns, and analysis of submesoscale-resolving 
observations. In addition, there will be opportunities to participate in field campaigns in the Western 
Subtropical Pacific, if this is of interest to the candidate.

Responsibilities: The postdoc will lead modeling efforts to study the energetics of submesoscale turbulence 
and wave-mean flow interactions, present findings at project meetings and at conferences, and publish results 
in articles. The postdoc will engage with the larger group of collaborators involved in the projects and will 
use the simulations to help design strategies to optimally sample submesoscales in the field. After the field 
campaigns, the postdoc will have the opportunity to analyze the resulting submesoscale-resolving observations 
and use process simulations to aid their interpretation.

Qualifications: A PhD in physical oceanography or related field, experience with numerical modeling, a 
strong understanding of ocean dynamics, and proficiency in a data analysis software such as Matlab or 
Python are required. Experience using ROMS or a related ocean modelling system (e.g. CROCO) or having a

2 PhD positions in atmospheric dynamics and weather extremes at the University of Bern, Switzerland

Two PhD positions in dynamics of persistent summer weather at the University of Bern

We invite applications for two 3.5-yr PhD positions within the SNF Project “Dynamics of persistent extreme
summer weather in Europe”. The main goal of this project is to study the dynamical pathways leading to
extreme summer weather in Europe in reanalysis and CESM-LENS2 data. The two PhD positions will be part
of the Mobiliar Group for Climate Impact Research at the University of Bern. In this group we study and
quantify the spatio-temporal characteristics of weather and risks, the atmospheric dynamics leading to
hazardous weather and impacts upon the Swiss society. The group is part of the Oeschger Centre for Climate
Change Research at the University of Bern.

Job description

Position 1: Statistics and dynamics of persistent surface weather extremes

Starting from identifying persistent surface weather conditions in Europe in the CEMS-LENS2 large ensemble
data set the aim is to provide descriptive statistics of the persistent extreme events, to quantify changes due
to global warming, and to study the dynamics driving the persistent surface extremes in the large ensemble
data set using causal discovery. The project will be co-supervised by Dim Coumou and Mathieu Vrac with the
opportunity to visit their research groups during the PhD.

Position 2: Jet waveguide dynamics
Starting from identifying persistent jet periods over the Euro-Atlantic basin in the CEMS-LENS2 ensemble data
set, the aim is to understand the dynamics governing the persistent jet states, in particular the roles of Rossby
wave breaking and diabatic processes will be investigated. The links of persistent jet states to persistent
surface extremes and sub-seasonal predictability will be explored in collaboration with the PhD working in
position 1. The project will be co-supervised by Tim Woollings with the opportunity to visit his research group
during the PhD. 

The research foci of the two PhD positions are complementary and the PhDs are expected to collaborate
closely with each other.

Your profile

Requirements are a master’s degree in atmospheric, climate, or environmental science, but applications from
other relevant backgrounds such as statistics or physics and/or operational / industry experience with
demonstrated knowledge of atmospheric science will also be considered. Besides being enthusiastic about
weather and climate research, applicants should have a strong quantitative background. For both positions a
strong background in meteorology and intermediate knowledge in statistics is an advantage. Solid
programming skills are required for both positions. The ability to communicate effectively is desired.
Applicants are expected to be fluent in English.

The expected starting date is 1.10.2022 with some flexibility and the positions (100% working contract, salary
follows University of Bern regulations) are available for a duration of 3.5 years with the possibility to extend
to a maximum of 4 years.

Interested?

Two postdoctoral positions: Satellite CH4 detection from space

The Atmospheric and Molecular Spectroscopy Group (GSMA) part of the University of Reims Champagne 
Ardenne (URCA) and the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE), partnering 
with Kayrros Inc., are looking for two (2) motivated postdocs / young scientists as part of a joint 
project dedicated to the development of atmospheric modeling systems and statistical tools and to 
their application to spaceborne measurements to detect, attribute, and quantify methane (CH4) 
emissions from Oil and Gas operations. The research focuses on high-resolution satellite imagery 
(Sentinel-2, PRISMA,...) combined with medium-resolution data from Sentinel-5P (TROPOMI).

Background

Oil and gas emissions are concentrated in a handful of dense clusters in and around shale gas basins 
such as the Permian in the US (Texas), along pipelines, and across major gas fields in Turkmenistan 
or Algeria. Countries and companies with high operational standards tend to have lower emission rates 
(Ereht et al., 2021). But the precise attribution of individual leaks to a specific facility or asset 
is limited by the resolution and/or precision of global satellite missions (e.g. Sentinel-5P). 
However, recent studies suggest that the majority of these large leaks are attributable to 
maintenance operations (Lauvaux et al., 2022), and less frequently to accidental releases. 
Mid-resolution satellites are already operating, offering the capability to monitor CH4 emissions 
globally (GOSAT, Sentinel-5P), with established methodology for emission monitoring of very large 
emitters (>25tCH4/h). The recent processing of CH4 measurements from other satellites (Sentinel-2 
amongst others), with an increased spatial resolution, makes it possible to refine the attribution 
of emitters to individual assets and to better quantify the magnitudes of emissions (lower detection 
threshold around 1-2tCH4/h). 

 
Research activities

New sensors and satellites are coming online every year, with a rapid expansion of the amount of 
available CH4 images for the quantification of leaks from oil and gas activities. However,  new 
modeling tools are needed to exploit these new types of CH4 images or the complementarity between 
the different types of sensors. Statistical analyses of the leaks could provide additional information 
to better understand their origins, and eventually help to design cost-effective mitigation policies. 
The main goals of the Methane Watch project are to (1) build the next generation of modeling systems 
to extract information from CH4 images collected by these new sensors, able to improve detection, 
attribution and quantification of CH4 plumes from Oil and Gas operations, and to (2) analyze statistically 
these emitters, deriving performance indicators for end-users such as policy makers. 

We seek two postdoctoral researchers (or early-career scientists) in this project. The first position 
will focus on designing tools to process CH4 images at high-resolution, using atmospheric models at 
high resolution (Large Eddy Simulation), advanced machine learning techniques, or both. The goal is to 
estimate precisely the magnitude of the leaks based on satellite images of CH4 plumes (column mole 
fractions) from Sentinel-2, PRISMA, or Landsat-8, combined with Sentinel-5P. The second position will 
aim at characterizing the origins of the sources, their spatial and temporal distributions, combining data 
from Oil and Gas assets with information on large CH4 emitters. These two positions are closely related, 
working as a team to produce a comprehensive study on large emitters from Oil and Gas activities.

Artificial-Intelligence Aided Modelling Scientist (Foundation Scientist)

Dear All

Please may I draw your attention to:

Artificial-Intelligence Aided Modelling Scientist (Foundation Scientist)

Apply at https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/about-us/careers/vacancies

Job Purpose
The Met Office uses its Unified Model to carry out weather forecasts globally and regionally and to perform 
climate projections on seasonal to centennial timescales. As well as representing the fluid dynamics of the 
large-scale flow, the model includes representations, or parametrizations, of small-scale atmospheric 
processes. These account for the transfer of solar and terrestrial radiation through the atmosphere, 
turbulent and convective mixing, the formation and evolution of clouds and the growth of precipitation 
particles. These parametrizations aim to accurately capture the impact of the process being modelled, 
while the code needs to be efficient enough to be called upon billions of times. Machine-learning 
techniques can be used to emulate the behaviour of some parametrization schemes. The model could then 
be improved, either by representing the same level of scientific complexity more cheaply, or by building 
more complicated schemes at similar cost to those used currently.

As a parametrization emulation scientist, you will work within a team of atmospheric science experts to 
use artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the representation of atmospheric processes within the 
Unified Model and its replacement, LFRic. You will run simulations on our high-performance computing 
system and generate and curate data. You will also make use of high-quality atmospheric observations. 
Combining these, you will apply data science methods to train, validate and test machine-learning (ML) 
algorithms and implement the trained algorithms back into the forecast and climate model, producing a 
hybrid model for ultimate use in operations.

You will work at the interface between atmospheric and machine-learning science and contribute to the 
oral presentation of results in meetings, both internally and externally. You will also have opportunities 
to contribute to the writing up of the results in the peer-reviewed scientific literature. Although we
 would welcome applicants with a background in both atmospheric and data sciences, as a cross-disciplinary post, 
we also wish to encourage applicants with a strong background in only one of the two disciplines. 
On-the-job training will be provided to broaden your expertise as appropriate.

Essential Qualifications, Skills & Abilities
A degree (2:1 or above or equivalent) in applied mathematics, physical sciences or computing.
Experience in scientific programming, ideally with Python.
Experience of reading in and manipulating large data sets in a linux environment.
Strong oral and written scientific communications skills.
Ability to work and communicate effectively as part of a team.
Awareness of collaborative code development practices in a professional environment.
An understanding of modern machine-learning techniques.
Strong interest in team-based multi-disciplinary science, with the drive, rigour and ability to work independently when required.

Kind regards

Cyril

Postdoc on Arctic and Antarctic sea ice-ocean modelling

Postdoctoral fellowship on Arctic and Antarctic sea ice-ocean modelling available at Université catholique 
de Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

Global climate model simulations still have significant biases in the extent of summer Arctic and Antarctic 
sea ice. One of the reasons is the coarse resolution of the models, which forbids an adequate representation 
of the processes that control the evolution of the ice edge, such as the interactions between sea ice and 
oceanic eddies, the influence of landfast ice, the role of coastal currents, the complex bathymetry, ... 
In this context, the Georges Lemaître Centre for Earth and Climate Research (TECLIM) / Earth and Life Institute (ELI) 
of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for 
conducting and comparing thoroughly simulations with the global sea ice-ocean general circulation model NEMO4-SI3 
driven by an atmospheric reanalysis at two different horizontal resolutions, namely 1° and 1/12°,  in order to 
determine how resolution impacts the model mean state and the model ability to reproduce the summer sea ice 
extent record lows observed recently in both the Arctic and Antarctic.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in ocean/sea ice modelling or related fields, and should have 
published in peer-reviewed scientific international journals. Experience in polar oceanography/glaciology is 
an asset. Advanced programming, post-processing and data managment/analysis skills are required. He/she should 
be fluent in English due to the multiple interactions planned with other members of TECLIM and should have 
demonstrated ability in team working.

The position is offered for 24 months, from September-October 2022 (the exact starting date can be negociated). 
Note that it is only accessible to researchers who did not spend the last 2 years in a Belgian lab and who have 
less than 6-yr experience after their PhD thesis defense. The net monthly salary (incl. social insurance) will 
amount to 2550-2750 EUR, depending on seniority. Public transportation to and from the workplace will be covered.

Applicants should send by e-mail to Thierry Fichefet (thierry.fichefet@uclouvain.be) (i) a statement of research 
experience, qualification and interest, (ii) a complete CV, including a list of publications, and (iii) the name 
of two scientists who would agree to write a letter of recommendation. Review of the applications will start 
on June 15th. The call will remain open until the position is filled.

PhD position in Atmospheric chemistry (2022-2025) at INERIS (France)

PhD position in Atmospheric chemistry (2022-2025) at INERIS (France)

BOISSOAM: Molecular characterization of gaseous and particulate phases and understanding of primary and 
secondary biomass burning emission processes.

Location : Verneuil-en-Halatte (60), France – accessible by public transport, 40 minutes North of Paris.

Keywords
Atmospheric chemistry, Air quality, Particulate matter, Biomass burning, Reactivity, Secondary organic 
aerosol (SOA), Molecular chemical characterization

Context and objectives
The knowledge of aerosols (particulate matter, PM) in ambient air is essential to assess health and climate 
impacts of air pollution. Their sources, formation processes and chemical composition are still poorly known. 
Biomass burning accounts for a significant part of the primary emissions of fine PM notably in winter period 
due to wood combustion used for residential heating purposes. This source also emits large quantities of 
volatile and semi-volatile organic species leading to the formation, via (photo-)chemical processes, of 
secondary organic aerosols (SOA) accounting for a substantial part of fine PM concentrations. However, SOA 
formation yields from this source, or from the corresponding SOA precursors emitted, are still poorly 
documented in the literature especially for night-time processes (involving nitrate radical) or for potential 
processes observed in areas under marine influence (involving halogenated radicals based on Cl, I or Br). 
In addition, existing studies in the literature have mainly been conducted at low or moderate relative humidity 
(0-50%). They therefore do not account for existing processes at higher humidity (> 80%) whereas the SOA formation 
potential and the physicochemical properties of the formed particles are probably radically different, and this 
type of information is crucial for air quality models. In this context, the main objectives of this PhD work are 
to study and understand the SOA formation processes from residential wood-burning appliance emissions (wood log 
stove) and from typically emitted SOA precursors (e.g. polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and phenolic compounds). 
To do so, wood combustion emissions, or pure precursors, will be aged using an oxidant flow reactor (OFR) under 
different oxidation conditions (OH, NO3 or Cl radicals), simulating the diurnal, nocturnal or under marine 
influence atmospheric processes, and at different relative humidity (50 and 80-90%). A detailed physicochemical 
characterization of the gaseous and particulate phases will be carried out in real time and using particle 
samples collected on filters followed by off-line analyses (notably by LC- and/or GC-HRMS). The implementation 
of advanced instrumentation such as a CI-ToF-MS (Chemical Ionization- Time of Flight-Mass Spectrometry), 
combining several ionization modes (H3O+, NH4+, O2+, I-) and aerosol analysis modules (e.g. EESI, extractive 
electrospray ionization) will permit to determine and measure, at a molecular level, volatile and semi-volatile 
organic substances in real time. This will allow the study of the primary particle emission and secondary 
formation dynamics from the wood log stove emissions, obtained under conditions as representative as possible 
of an actual usage. Finally, analysis of potential links between the detailed physicochemical characterization 
of the gas and particulate phases and the biological responses obtained in another PhD work focusing on 
pulmonary toxicology (WOODTOX) which will take place jointly with the BOISSOAM PhD work, will be performed.

Candidate profile

Master or equivalent in Environmental Sciences or Analytical Chemistry
Strong experimental and lab/field work interest
Knowledge in mass spectrometry
Knowledge in atmospheric chemistry would be a plus
Computer knowledge and data analysis
Autonomy, scientific rigour, adaptability, teamwork, open mind, synthesis and writing abilities.
Good English level.

To apply: Send CV, cover letter and any recommendation letter before 10/06/2022.

PhD position - Antarctic ice cores, NZ supereruptions and biogeochemistry

The following PhD project is available in New Zealand.

Climatic and environmental impacts of the youngest supereruption on Earth

Rapid changes in Earth's climate have been documented after historic explosive volcanic eruptions such as 
Pinatubo 1991. However, the magnitude of the largest explosive eruptions represented in the geological record 
far exceeds those witnessed in modern history, by up to two orders of magnitude. Through simply scaling the 
measured impacts of historic volcanic eruptions, it has been proposed that supereruptions may have caused 
major shifts in Earth's past climate. Few opportunities exist to study supereruption deposits in sufficient 
detail to understand their impacts, but New Zealand is THE place to do this. The central North Island is 
host to the most productive region of active silicic volcanism on Earth, which produced the most recent 
supereruption known, at 25.5 ka.

This PhD project will investigate the climatic and environmental impacts of 
the 25.5 ka Oruanui supereruption using Antarctic ice core records. The Oruanui supereruption has been recently 
identified in the high‐resolution West Antarctic Ice Sheet divide ice core (WDC‐06A) through the presence of a 
large sulfate peak and volcanic glass shards, opening up the possibility to critically assess the impacts of 
this event. The student will investigate at least three other ice cores that cover the same time interval using 
existing ice core geochemistry and particle analysis as a sampling guide. The presence of Oruanui glass 
provides a critical geochemical fingerprint of the supereruption and a time marker to interrogate the surrounding 
ice record for a range of climatic and environmental proxies. The student will further analyse the volcanic 
horizon for bioavailable iron and phytoplankton proxies to investigate the potential biological impacts of the 
supereruption through ash fertilisation of the Southern Ocean. This research will provide the first insights into 
the impacts of a supereruption over short (years), medium (decades) and longer (centuries or more) time intervals. 
We are looking for a student with a strong background in one or more of the following: palaeoclimate research, 
ice core research, microanalytical geochemistry, marine chemistry/ biogeochemistry. As part of a wider research 
programme funded by the Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Fund, this project will proceed in parallel, 
interact and work closely with a second PhD student and gain experience in a variety of labs and analytical 
facilities in NZ and the USA.

Supervisors: Simon Barker (VUW), Holly Winton (VUW), Nels Iverson (New Mexico Tech), Michael Sigl (University of Bern)

Contact: simon.barker@vuw.ac.nz and holly.winton@vuw.ac.nz

Stipend: NZ$35,000 + fees (3 years), international travel for conferences and analytical work

Funding provided by 3 year Marsden project: “Climatic and environmental impacts of the largest explosive volcanic 
eruptions on Earth”. Based at Victoria University of Wellington.

Ideal starting date: Mid to late 2022

3-year research position on snow cover over sea ice

Applications are invited for a 36-month postdoctoral position, in the climate research group of the CNRM in 
Toulouse, France (http://www.umr-cnrm.fr/) to work on the modelisation of snow cover over sea ice and its 
impact on the local and remote climates.
              
Context:
The Arctic sea ice has experienced a drastic decline over the last decades, perceived as an emblematic sign of 
climate change. Substantial reductions in sea ice cover, and also thickness, among other modifications, have 
already impacted largely on local ecosystems, indigenous populations and possibly lower-latitude climate. A 
further reduction in the sea ice cover and thus more open water exposed to the atmosphere is expected in the 
near future. Two to four times faster surface warming has also been observed in the Arctic than at any other 
latitude over the last decades. This phenomenon is commonly referred to as the Arctic amplification. Although 
the available observational record is relatively short and the response of weather systems to a potential Arctic 
forcing is highly chaotic, both leading to major uncertainties, the Arctic climate change is thought to impact 
the mid-latitude atmospheric circulation to an extent and through mechanisms which are still highly debated.

Heat exchange between sea ice and atmosphere plays a crucial role on the rate of Arctic sea ice melting as well 
as on the teleconnections between polar and non-polar regions. A realistic albedo feedback amplitude, central to 
the Arctic amplification, requires a reliable representation of surface albedo, which heavily depends on surface 
characteristics such as the presence of snow or meltponds over sea ice. State-of-the-art representations of snow 
cover over sea ice in coupled climate models are crude compared to snow cover models developed for land surfaces 
such as CROCUS or ISBA-ES.

Mission:         
This position is funded by the Horizon 2020 CRiceS project (Climate relevant interactions and feedbacks: the key 
role of sea ice and snow in the polar and global climate system). The CRiceS project focuses on improving model 
predictions of the role of polar processes in the climate system that consists of the oceans, ice and snow cover, 
and the atmosphere. It is crucial to understand the role of the polar processes, such as feedback loops, in the 
present and future polar and global climate. CRiceS will enhance climate models in terms of how polar processes 
are embedded in the model codes.

The postdoctoral research scientist will contribute to adapt advanced multi-layer snow cover schemes developed for 
land surface such as CROCUS or ISBA-ES to represent the snow cover over sea ice in the in-house coupled CNRM-CM model. 
Such snow models will allow increasing the number of snow layers, refining the representation of snow metamorphism and 
radiation transfer through snow and introducing a spectral albedo into the CNRM-CM sea ice model. The postdoctoral 
research scientist will assess the added-value of those developments on the local and remote climates both in 
atmosphere-only and global coupled simulations that he/she will produce. He/she will also work toward an accurate 
representation of capillarity and sharp temperature gradients which are peculiar features observed in the snow over 
sea ice but not on land surfaces.    

Environment:

The position will be held at CNRM (Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques) in Toulouse (France) in the GMGEC 
department (Groupe de Météorologie Grande Echelle et Climat) in the IOGA team (Interactions Océan-Glace-Atmosphère), 
in collaboration with the EST team (Equipe Système Terre). The GMGEC department is at the forefront of climate modelling 
and contributes to each phase of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) with its in-home coupled model, CNRM-CM, 
co-developed with CERFACS. The IOGA team aims at improving the representation of ocean, sea ice and atmosphere exchanges and 
interactions in the CNRM-CM model and investigates coupled mechanisms and processes driving the climate system behaviour. 
The EST team focuses on the modelisation of land surfaces and its interactions with other climate system components. Both 
IOGA and EST contribute to the development of modelling tools used for climate predictions and projections and numerical 
weather predictions (for instance the SURFEX platform, used for air-ice and air-sea fluxes calculation and ocean-atmosphere coupling)          

Required qualifications:
Ph.D. in atmospheric dynamics, climate sciences, fluid mechanics or related 
Knowledge about modelling of snow cover,     
Experience with HPC
Experience with Unix and Fortran
Knowledge of NetCDF encoding and related data analysis tools (cdo, nco)
Programming skill : scripting and visualisation (e.g. bash, R, python, ncl) 
Good command of English.
Collaborative spirit and communication skill

Applications should be sent to virginie.guemas@meteo.fr.

Description of the scientific project :

The ANR INCIDENCE project aims to study the impact of air pollution on brain development but also to characterize the 
potential association between exposure to air pollution and certain psychiatric disorders, notably schizophrenia and 
autism spectrum disorders. In this project, we aim to study the associations ("odd ratio") between the concentrations 
of pollutants (mainly PM2.5) and the occurrence of these psychiatric disorders, whether in relation to prenatal exposure, 
in young age, or in adolescence. The link between pollution and the trajectory of these pathologies (e.g. triggering of 
specific crises) during the life course will also be studied.
More specifically, the objective will be to build profiles of exposure to air pollution taking into account the history 
of individuals in terms of geographical location, and more specifically the type of environment (rural, urban, ...) frequented, 
and taking into account the periods of time concerned according to the age of the patients. Overall, the time period covered 
is the last 30 to 40 years.
This exposure will be determined from pollutant fields simulated with a chemistry-transport model (CHIMERE) and from data 
observed at air quality monitoring stations. These two types of data are either put in synergy via data assimilation or used 
separately. Most of the data are already available and much of the work will be in analyzing them.
As these data will be confronted with medical data from patient cohorts in different French regions, it will be necessary to 
interact frequently with our medical collaborators (psychiatrists and epidemiologists) to adapt and conform the data to the 
specific needs of the pathologies and patients studied.
These works aiming to investigate possible links between air pollution and psychiatric disorders are still very few in the 
world and the results obtained will be particularly original.

20-month engineer or postdoc position at Meteo-France

CALL  FOR APPLICATION
20-MONTH CONTRACT FOR AN ENGINEER
(Meteo-France, Toulouse, France)

Applications are invited for a 20-month engineer position starting in September 2022, in the climate research 
group (GMGEC/MOSCA) of the Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques at Météo-France, Toulouse, France to 
work on "Very high resolution climate modeling and data management". The deadline for application is May 19, 2022.

Title: Engineer in very high resolution modeling and data management of the European climate (M/F)

State-of-the-art Regional climate Model (RCMs) currently run at spatial resolutions between 50 and 12 km such 
as in the CORDEX initiative. At that resolution, the dynamical core of the models is still often hydrostatic 
and the deep convection is parametrized. Such models are commonly used to study past variability of climate 
phenomena, future regional climate change or to provide climate information for impact studies or operational 
climate services.

In the Make Our Planet Great Again KM-IMPACTS project, a new generation of RCMs, called Convection-Permitting 
RCMs (CPRCM) running at about 2 km resolution, with non-hydrostatic dynamical core and explicit deep convection 
representation are used over large portions of Europe. Decadal-long climate simulations with the CPRCM AROME have 
been analyzed in hindcast mode to identify added value. The second part of the project focuses on the analysis of 
climate change projections at different resolutions produced by different global climate models, regional climate 
models and convection permitting RCMs. The results of the analyses will be presented in different conferences and 
hopefully will lead to the publication of scientific papers.

The work proposed includes to (1) prepare climate output according to the CORDEX standards, (2) upload data to the 
ESGF portal, (3) implement an automatic input/output server (XIOS) connected to the climate model AROME to produce 
climate data with the CORDEX standards format, (4) adapt a tool (CLIMAF) to evaluate automatically AROME climate 
simulations (5) perform climate sensitivity simulations with the new version of the AROME CPRCM, and (6) download 
climate simulations from different portals (ESGF, CORDEX, FPS-Convection) and perform multi-model scientific analyses 
including producing graphs and tables following advice from senior scientists (7) participate to the writing of 
scientific papers. The selected candidate will also be responsible for assisting CNRS/CNRM researchers and PhD 
students working on the project.

Desirable qualifications:

1) Engineer diploma (BAC+5) or MSc. or Ph.D. degree in atmospheric, oceanic or climate sciences obtained before 
the starting date of the contract.
2) Experience in the field of European climate study, regional climate modeling and/or convection-permitting models 
will be appreciated, but is not mandatory.

PhD student positions, Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research

PhD student positions (m, f, div)
The Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research is part of the Leibniz Association and an
internationally renowned institute in the field of aerosol and cloud research. The Atmospheric
Chemistry Department (ACD) is looking for strong self-motivated and committed graduate
student to work in the field of atmospheric chemistry.
The aim of this PhD topic is to investigate the abiotic (photo)chemical reactions in the ocean
surface that may strongly affect both organic matter cycling at the sea surface (Sea-Surface
Microlayer – SML) and air-sea exchange. The PhD thesis is settled within the DFG research
unit “Biogeochemical processes and Air–sea exchange in the Sea-Surface Microlayer - BASS”
in an international environment with highly renown experts in the field of oceanic and
atmospheric research.
In this research project, the primary focus is to study the kinetics of the photo-induced
formation, reactivity and conversion processes of radicals and molecules in the excited state
at the sea surface as well as in the aqueous phase. Consequently, photo-induced formation of
the OH radical or halogen radicals (Cl•, Br•, ClBr•-, Cl2•- and Br2•-) is applied using laser-flash
photolysis of the corresponding precursors. To investigate the reactivity of these radical
species or excited states with the organic proxy compounds (e.g., fatty acids or
carbohydrates), the second-order rate constant will be determined by absorption
measurements, using either the competition kinetic method or the direct kinetic approach.
Subsequently, the transient species formed and the stable products of the photo-induced
reactions will be studied in detail to elucidate the main transformation processes of the SML.
As a part of a multidisciplinary group of international scientists involving the Department of
Atmospheric Chemistry, the hired PhD student (m, f, d) will have the following specific
responsibilities:
• Planning, realization and interpretation of the photo-chemical experiments in the
aqueous phase or relevance for ocean surface chemistry.
• Perform laboratory studies on the reactivity of OH radical, halogen radicals (see above)
and excited photosensitizers with organic SML proxy compounds using a laser flash -
long path absorption setup.
• Conduct experiments as part of product studies to characterize stable reaction products
using available analytical techniques such as GC-MS, LC-MS and UPLC-HRMS.
• Participation in a field expedition to the island of Helgoland to sample ambient ocean
water for laboratory analysis and participation in several BASS related workshops.
• Evaluation and presentation of the obtained results through presentations and
publications.
Mandatory qualifications:
• The interested applicants should have a Master's degree in chemistry, biochemistry,
environmental science, meteorological science, or related disciplines.
• At best, experience and at least strong interest in chemical kinetics, photochemistry,
aqueous-phase radical chemistry, physical chemistry, analytical chemistry and
atmospheric chemistry is an advantage.
• Technical understanding, laboratory skills as well as a good laboratory practice are
essential.
• Fluent English in written and oral form are compulsory.

A cumulative dissertation with three publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals is
expected.
The ideal starting date would be 01.07.2022, with a fixed term to 30.6.2025.
We offer you an exciting job with a varied activity in an interdisciplinary working environment
and a variety of work and family offers as well as flexible working hours and daycare places.
The employment relationship is limited to 3 years and includes a part-time position with 26
hours/week. Remuneration is provided at TV-L pay group 13, including the attractive social
benefits of the public sector. In order to increase the proportion of female employees in
scientific and science-related positions, we hereby specifically invite female candidates to
apply. People with severe disabilities have priority in the hiring process if they have the same
suitability, aptitude and professional qualifications.
If you are interested, please send your complete and informative application documents
(including references) by 15.05.2022 exclusively by e-mail in one coherent PDF document to

atmospheric scientists.

The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences (ATM-DP, 
https://www.helsinki.fi/en/admissions-and-education/apply-doctoral-programmes/doctoral-schools-and-doctoral-programmes/doctoral-school-natural-sciences/doctoral-programme-atmospheric-sciences) is one of the seven doctoral programmes within the Doctoral School of Natural Sciences at the University of Helsinki. ATM-DP is an international and multi-disciplinary programme, educating currently ca. 140 doctoral candidates. The candidates come from all parts of the world (over one third from outside Finland) and their main subjects vary from theoretical physics to forest ecology and management, and to environmental change and policy.

The Doctoral Programme in Atmospheric Sciences calls for

LETTERS OF INTENT FOR DOCTORAL STUDIES

in order to bring prospective doctoral candidates with strong academic record into contact with ATM-DP supervisors.

The most impressive submitters of a Letter of Intent will be contacted and interviewed, after which supervisors may 
decide to help them in preparing a research proposal for the next call for university-funded positions in September 
2022 or for external funding for doctoral studies.

N.B.: the possible mutual interest arising from the Letter of Intent does not guarantee the admission to pursue doctoral 
degree or work at the University of Helsinki.

The submitters of the Letters of Intent are expected to hold a second-cycle degree (e.g. Master’s) or to presumably 
obtain such by the end of August 2022. Students interested in pursuing graduate studies after completion of Bachelor’s 
thesis are encouraged to apply to our Master’s Programme in Atmospheric Sciences (ATM-MP). ATM-MP has strong record of 
preparing students for continuing directly to the Doctoral Programme.

PhD position: Atmospheric Dynamics, Goethe University

The research group Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate at the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental 
Sciences of the Goethe University in the city of Frankfurt (https://frankfurt.de/english/about-frankfurt) invites 
applications for a

Research Assistant (m/f/d)
PhD Student position
(E13 TV-G-U, 75%)

The position is for three years. It is funded within the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 301 “TPChange – 
The Tropopause Region in a Changing Atmosphere” by the German Research Foundation (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). 
The salary grade is based on the job characteristics of the collective agreement (TV-G-U) applicable to the Goethe University.

Within TPChange (https://tpchange.de/) we aim to improve the understanding of relevant multiscale processes in the 
tropopause region and to specify their impact on composition, dynamics and ultimately on future climate and 
climate variability. The PhD candidate will work in project B06:

“Unresolved-dynamics impact on transport and mixing in the UTLS”

Project leaders: Prof. Ulrich Achatz (Goethe University Frankfurt), in collaboration with Dr. Daniel Kunkel 
(University Mainz) and Prof. Juerg Schmidli (Goethe University Frankfurt).

Zonal-mean tracer transport through the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere (UTLS) is characterized by the 
Brewer-Dobson circulation that is predominantly due to mean-flow forcing by breaking Rossby waves and gravity waves, 
and that is affected essentially by mixing due to turbulence, partly generated by gravity-wave dissipation. Both 
gravity waves (in part) and turbulence (in total) fall in scale below weather-forecast and climate model resolutions 
so that these effects need to be described by parameterizations. Indications are strong, however, that the present-day 
parameterizations are not sufficiently accurate to describe effects on tracers in a reliable manner.

The position to be filled will address the dynamics of gravity waves and their impact on tracers within the new 
gravity-wave model MS-GWaM, recently implemented and validated in the weather and climate code ICON. The direct 
coupling of MS-GWaM to tracers, by Stokes transport and by mixing due to breaking GWs, will be addressed systematically. 
Idealized investigations and developments derived therefrom will be followed by an implementation of these effects into 
ICON/MS-GWaM, and a systematic investigation of the consequences with regard to large-scale UTLS tracer transport.

Information on the research group where the position will be located can be found at 
http://www.goethe-university-frankfurt.de/45681958/Theory-of-Atmospheric-Dynamics-and-Climate. Its focus is on 
scale interactions in atmospheric dynamics, applied e.g. to large-scale low-frequency variability or gravity-wave 
dynamics. Middle-atmosphere dynamics is another field of work. Methods employed are e.g. multi-scale asymptotics, 
stochastics, and numerical simulations. Inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Ulrich Achatz (achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de).

TPChange offers a comprehensive and structured training for early career researchers. In addition to self-organised 
activities such as workshops, trainings and a guest program, the successful candidate will have the opportunity, if 
desired, to pursue international research visits. The consortium conducts an ambitious program to gradually enhance 
gender equality on all career levels.

Requirements
Applicants should have a very good diploma/Master’s degree in meteorology, physics, applied mathematics, fluid dynamics, 
or a related field. Expected is a strong background in theory and/or modeling.

The university is committed to equal rights for women and men and therefore strongly encourages women to apply. Severely 
disabled persons are given priority in the case of equal qualifications.

Applications and deadline
Please send applications with reference to the code B06_PhD_GUF as one single pdf file to achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de , 
including (i) a letter of motivation, (ii) a CV, (iii) copies of all relevant certificates, and at least two contacts 
for reference letters by 29.5.2022. Applications beyond this date will be considered until the position has been filled. 
For further information, please contact achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de.

We look forward to your application!

Two Postdocs/Research Associates at NYU in Climate Physics & Machine Learning

Dear colleagues, 

We are looking for two postdocs or research associates to join our team at NYU, led by Prof Laure Zanna, 
and work at the interface between climate science and machine learning.

The successful applicants will perform research as part of the new multi-institution international project, 
M²LInES, supported by Schmidt Futures, which aims to further our understanding of climate processes and to 
reduce climate model biases at the air-sea/ice interface, using scientific machine learning. They will 
join the M²LInES NYU team, currently composed of professors Joan Bruna, Carlos Fernandez-Granda and Laure 
Zanna, as well as multiple postdoctoral researchers, and graduate students. 

The main topic of research is to develop machine-learned models for ocean processes from outputs of 
high-resolution climate simulations and data-assimilation products. The scientific goal is to deepen our 
understanding of ocean mesoscale momentum, buoyancy and energy transport, in particular at the air-sea 
interface and to develop new mesoscale parameterizations for use in existing global climate models. 
For examples of our work in this area, see https://tinyurl.com/6wcjxxfe;   https://tinyurl.com/yckwscu4;  https://tinyurl.com/3cu4c4pd.

Two postdoc positions in regional coupled modeling at WHOI

WHOI is inviting applications for two Postdoctoral Investigator positions. For both positions, 
prior experience with ROMS, WRF, WW3, or other regional modeling systems is preferred, but not required. 
Qualified applicants must submit the application forms online. The documents should include a cover letter, 
CV, and contact information (only) of 3 references. Interested applicants should contact Dr. Hyodae Seo (hseo@whoi.edu).

1. Wave-ocean-atmosphere parameterizations and modeling: The successful candidate will work with a group of 
scientists at WHOI (Hyodae Seo, Jim Edson, Carol Anne Clayson, Cesar Sauvage) on two projects aimed at 
improving the representation of the impacts of ocean and surface waves in the ocean mixed layer, 
atmospheric boundary layer, and air-sea fluxes for the North Atlantic Ocean. The projects will be using the 
SCOAR regional coupled modeling system (WRF-ROMS-WW3, https://hseo.whoi.edu/scoar-model) and will also test 
a hierarchical representation of the ocean and wave-mediated processes in NASA’s Unified WRF (https://nuwrf.gsfc.nasa.gov).
Detail/Apply at: https://careers-whoi.icims.com/jobs/1685/postdoctoral-investigator---physical-oceanography/job

2. Regional coupled climate modeling for the U.S. West Coast: The successful candidate will work on an 
NSF project to quantify the role of large-scale and fine-scale coupled ocean-atmosphere processes in 
shaping persistent anomalous ocean states ranging from meso-to-frontal scales of cool coastal upwelling 
to the regional-to-basin scales of the marine heatwaves of the “Blobs.” The project will probe into how 
anomalous ocean states influence synoptic weather events (e.g., extratropical cyclones, atmospheric rivers, 
and atmospheric blocking) and examine how far inland, and by what mechanisms, the effects of anomalous 
ocean-atmosphere coupling penetrate. The research will use the SCOAR regional coupled model, dynamically 
downscaling the outputs from the CESM Large Ensemble simulations.

PhD position in Air quality / Atmospheric chemistry Modelling (2022-2025) at INERIS (France)

PhD position in Air quality / Atmospheric chemistry Modelling (2022-2025) at INERIS (France)

Modeling molecular markers of organic aerosols to assess gas/particle partitioning of organic compounds in the atmosphere

Location : Verneuil-en-Halatte (60), France – accessible by public transport, 40 minutes North of Paris.

Contact : florian.couvidat@ineris.fr

http://www.ineris.fr

Context and objectives

Atmospheric aerosols have an impact on air quality and climate. The organic component (OA, organic aerosols) 
represents a large part of aerosols. OA can be emitted directly (primary OA) or formed by the oxidation of 
volatile organic compounds into secondary organic aerosol (SOA). Both primary and secondary sources can be of 
biogenic or anthropogenic origin.

Many complex phenomena contribute to the formation of SOA (gas/particle partitioning of semi-volatile compounds 
influenced in particular by the effect of viscosity, complex and non-linear gaseous or aqueous chemistry, 
hydrophilic or hydrophobic properties of the compounds, oligomerization, etc.). Because of the lack of knowledge 
on these processes, Chemistry-Transport Models (such as the CHIMERE model co-developed by INERIS and CNRS) use 
simplified parameterizations that do not represent all these phenomena and tend to underestimate the formation of 
OA. In addition, many studies point out a complex dependence of the formation of SOA to the concentrations of 
radicals (HO2, RO2, OH), ozone, nitrogen oxides (NOx), but also to the concentrations of inorganic aerosols.

OA molecular markers are chemical compounds characteristic of the primary emission sources of OA or of the processes 
by which SOA are formed from specific precursors. Incorporating such compounds into models can be used to study and 
improved the representation of OA in models. We previously demonstrated, using such an approach, that models strongly 
underestimated the gas/particle partitioning of organic compounds and did not account for some AOS precursors 
(Grazia Lanzafame, PhD, 2019 ).

The main objective of the thesis proposed here will be to improve the representation of OA markers and more 
particularly gas/particle partitioning in the CHIMERE air quality model. Ultimately, this work will provide 
key elements on the formation processes of molecular markers in order to account for the potential use of their 
representation in the CHIMERE model for the purpose of tracing and assessing sources and precursors of SOA.

In this context, recent studies show that the gas/particle partitioning could be strongly affected by the viscosity 
of OA. Indeed, the viscosity could affect the dynamics of condensation/evaporation of organic compounds and could 
for example trap compounds within the particle. The gas/particle partitioning would then move away from the 
thermodynamic equilibrium, usually assumed in 3D modeling. However, approaches used currently in 3D modeling 
do not adequately take into account the low volatility of AOs as well as the effect of viscosity which influences 
the condensation/evaporation processes of organic compounds. A new methodology has been developed to overcome 
these difficulties by generating reduced mechanisms from complex mechanisms (GENOA tool, Zhizhao Wang, PhD, 2022).

The PhD student will have to:
(1) Improve the reduced mechanisms of formation of various molecular markers of SOA of biogenic and anthropogenic 
origin based on mechanisms available in the literature and the GENOA tool. The list of markers already implemented 
will be extended to new compounds (notably markers of sesquiterpenes, fungal spores (polyols) or oxalic acid).
(2) Implement these new mechanisms in the air quality model CHIMERE and the evaluation of the model results by 
comparison to in-situ measurements.
(3) Evaluate the effect of viscosity on the gas/particle partitioning of molecular markers.

Candidate profile

Degree Master on chemistry or on modeling
Strong skills in programming and modeling
Knowledge in chemistry would also welcomed
Autonomy, scientific rigor, adaptability, communication and writing abilities.
Good English level

To apply: Send CV, cover letter and any recommendation letter before 01/06/2022.

Postdoctoral scholar in climate model evaluation of extreme precipitation mechanisms at Portland State University

Portland State University is hiring a postdoctoral scholar in weather and climate science. The postdoc will be supervised 
by Dr. Paul Loikith and join the Portland State Climate Science Lab. The position is initially for two years, with possible extension.  

Research Description: The postdoc will contribute to research on evaluating the skill with which climate models simulate 
precipitation extremes with the proper driving meteorological mechanisms over the Contiguous United States (mechanisms 
include atmospheric rivers, tropical cyclones, mesoscale convective systems, etc.). Research will entail developing 
automated meteorological mechanism identification software, building a robust observations-based climatology of key 
driving mechanisms of extreme precipitation, and using this climatology as a target for a multi-model evaluation. 
The postdoc will also be responsible for documenting and publishing code developed to carry out the analysis.

Qualifications: Applicants must have a PhD at the start of the appointment and must have research experience in 
meteorology and/or climate science and be proficient in the analysis of large datasets. Demonstrated proficiency in 
advanced scientific programming and development and documentation of open-source software, or a desire to develop these 
skills, is required. Knowledge of synoptic meteorology, in particular over the Contiguous United States is a plus, but 
not a requirement for applying to this position. Applicants with a strong publication record for their career stage and 
demonstrated effective research communication and visualization skills are preferred.

Applicants must submit: (1) a statement of research interests and experience as they relate to this job listing (no 
more than 2 pages); (2) a complete CV; (3) contact information for three references. Further information and the link 
to submit an application can be found here: https://jobs.hrc.pdx.edu/postings/36441.

The Portland State University Climate Science Lab ( https://sites.google.com/pdx.edu/portland-state-climate-science/home ) 
is located on the PSU campus in Portland, Oregon. The postdoc will be joining a dynamic team of scientists including 
undergraduate, graduate, and faculty researchers. 

Postdoctoral Research Assistant, Reading: 3D radiative transfer in vegetation canopies

This is an exciting opportunity to work on the interaction of forests with the global climate system, using 
state-of-the-art models and observations.

The successful applicant will work on the NERC SPLICE project, which will examine how the 3D structure of 
vegetation influences photosynthesis, a key driver of the global carbon cycle. You will develop detailed 
3D models of forest canopies, and undertake research to understand the level of canopy complexity that is 
required to best represent photosynthesis in climate models. You will work with colleagues at UCL, and a 
network of partners in Europe, to confront these models with new observations such as solar induced fluorescence.

The post holder will be based in the Meteorology Department in the University of Reading – a world 
leading centre for weather and climate science – and you will be part of the UK National Centre for Earth 
Observation. You will work under the supervision of Dr Tristan Quaife and collaborate with, and receive 
support from, other members of his team who work in the general area of land surface modelling, remote 
sensing and climate science.

Research associate in national greenhouse gas emissions evaluation

Research Associate in National Greenhouse Gas Emissions Evaluation (DARE-UK)

The Detection and Attribution of Regional greenhouse gas Emissions in the UK (DARE-UK) is an ambitious 
NERC-funded UK-wide project led by the University of Bristol that aims to develop next-generation national 
greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions evaluation systems. The Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG), though 
the Schools of Geographical Sciences and Chemistry at the University of Bristol, is seeking a talented 
researcher with a strong background in computational science to join the DARE-UK team. In this role, you will 
be primarily responsible for analysing a new suite of atmospheric measurements to estimate the UK’s natural 
and anthropogenic GHG fluxes. You will work closely with ACRG colleagues studying GHG measurements and 
atmospheric modelling, and with a nationwide network of DARE-UK researchers and stakeholders who are developing 
new instrumentation, studying terrestrial and oceanic GHG fluxes and examining anthropogenic GHG inventories. 
The UK is one of only a small number of countries that include “top-down” (atmospheric data-based) emissions 
estimates in its reports to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and it is anticipated 
that developments made in DARE-UK will feed into the UK’s future emissions evaluation system. The successful 
applicant will have a unique opportunity to make a leading contribution to DARE-UK, and a range of similar 
ACRG-led projects, which ultimately aim to ensure transparency and accuracy in national GHG emissions estimates.

We are seeking a researcher who holds, or expects to obtain in the near future, a PhD in physical sciences, 
computing, mathematics or similar fields. A high level of computational expertise is essential. Familiarity 
with Bayesian methods, atmospheric modelling or the carbon cycle is desirable.

The contract will initially be for a 2-year period and can likely be extended, if mutually agreeable. The 
post is available to start as soon as possible.

For further details, please contact Dr. Anita Ganesan (anita.ganesan@bristol.ac.uk) and 
Prof. Matt Rigby (matt.rigby@bristol.ac.uk).

Post-Doc in Paris: Internal waves in the atmosphere

Post-Doc announcement at LMD (Paris)

Title:
Internal waves in the atmosphere: diagnostics, observation, and parameterization

Responsible:
François Lott in collaboration with A. Hertzog, R. Plougonven and A. Podglajen from LMD.

A post doctoral position is opening at the “Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique” to work on the dynamics of 
internal waves in the atmosphere.  These waves have scales that place them in the “grey zone” of most climate and 
weather prediction model. A central issue is to determine to which extent some of them are well resolved and some 
others need to parameterized.

The candidate will use high-resolution global simulations issued from the DYAMOND project, and diagnose the waves in them.  
A particular focus will be on a comparison between the waves existing in the models and their potential detection by 
balloon measurements.  In doing so, the candidate will analyze if the models represent well gravity waves, mountain 
waves, and some of the equatorial waves seen during campaigns (Loon and Strateole 2 stratospheric balloon observations). 
The candidate will also test if state of the art parameterizations of gravity waves (Lott and Miller 1997, Lott and Guez 2013, 
de la Camara and Lott 2016) do a fair job in representing the waves present in the simulations.  Adaptation of the 
schemes to improve their realism will have to be done, this will include emulation of the schemes using machine-learning 
techniques and test against the Loon stratospheric balloon observations  post processed during the ongoing  “VESRI-datawave” 
project.  In this context, the candidate will actively interact with the international consortium (USA, UK, Germany, 
France) involved in VESRI-datawave.

Employment conditions:
The position opens for one year, with possible extension over the following years.  Salaries according to the local 
french standards (depending on experience but typically around 2500E net/month including social benefits).

This call is opened until June, 15, 2022.
Starting date: September 2022, but negotiable

Qualifications:
PHD in atmospheric sciences, geophysical fluid dynamics, climate dynamics, data sciences including machine learning or 
artificial intelligence. Publication(s) in peer-reviewed international journals

Postdoc/Research engineer in water isotope modelling in the ORCHIDEE land surface and vegetation model


The IPSL is looking for a 18-month Postdoc/Research engineer in water isotope and/or land surface modelling 
( https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/710335 )

Where: The position is primarily based at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l’Environnement (LSCE) 
on the Plateau de Saclay. Frequent visits to the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (LMD) in Jussieu are expected.

How long: 18 months.

How to apply: send your CV and motivation letter to peylin@lsce.ipsl.fr and jean-baptiste.ladant@lsce.ipsl.fr

Mission:
Water isotopes (Oxygen 18, Deuterium) in the ocean/atmosphere/biosphere/cryosphere serve as a powerful 
hydrologic tracer and as an essential proxy to interpret paleoclimatic changes across time scales. They 
constitute an essential tool to compare field data observations with model simulations as significant advances 
have been made in earth system models (ESMs) in the last decades to simulate the complete cycle of water isotopes.
 Although they are or have once been implemented separately in all components (atmosphere, ocean and 
vegetation/land surface) of the IPSL ESM, a fully-coupled, isotope-enabled version of the IPSL ESM is still lacking.

The successful candidate will join a team of scientists and programmers working on the perennial implementation 
of water stable isotope transport and cycling in the IPSL Earth Climate System Model (ESM). The main task will 
consist in implementing the transfer of water isotopes in the physically-based 11-layer soil hydrology scheme 
(describing vertical water diffusion), the enrichment of water isotopes in the leaf and the overall coupling 
between the different water pools described in ORCHIDEE.

In a second time, the candidate is expected to perform the coupling between ORCHIDEE and the LMDZ atmosphere model 
to create an essential block of the fully coupled, isotope-enabled, IPSL earth system model.

This work will at both stages be validated against modern water isotope measurements in vegetation, soils 
and the atmosphere.

Although the core of the initial work is the implementation of water isotopes in ORCHIDEE, scientific 
applications of the isotope-enabled ORCHIDEE and ORCHIDEE-LMDZ models are expected, pending appropriate progress, 
resulting in authorship or co-authorship of several scientific papers, notably a reference paper on water 
isotopes in ORCHIDEE and its validation. Further scientific applications may include hydrological and/or paleo-climate studies.

Requirements:
- PhD in earth system sciences
- Experience in numerical modelling is necessary; experience with land surface models is desirable
- Good programming skills
- Knowledge of MPI/OpenMP programming is an asset
- Knowledge of the ORCHIDEE model is an asset
- Knowledge of the water isotope cycle in the atmosphere/biosphere is an asset
- Knowledge of the vegetation and soil physics is an asset
- Good communication and teamworking skills to ensure appropriate interactions with the different labs are essential

Postdoctoral Position: Atmospheric Dynamics / Interaction between Gravity Waves and Ice Clouds

The research group Theory of Atmospheric Dynamics and Climate at the Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental 
Sciences of the Goethe University in the city of Frankfurt (https://frankfurt.de/english/about-frankfurt) 
invites applications for a

Research Assistant (m/f/d)
Postdoctoral Scientist
(E13 TV-G-U)

The position is limited until 30.06.2025 and is funded within the Transregional Collaborative Research Centre 
301 (https://tpchange.de/) “TPChange – The Tropopause Region in a Changing Atmosphere” by the German Research 
Foundation (DFG, Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). The salary grade is based on the job characteristics of 
the collective agreement (TV-G-U) applicable to the Goethe University.

Within TPChange we aim to improve the understanding of relevant multiscale processes in the tropopause region 
and to specify their impact on composition, dynamics and ultimately on future climate and climate variability. 
The postdoctoral scientist will work in project B07:

“Impact of cirrus clouds on tropopause structure”

Project leaders: Prof. Ulrich Achatz (Goethe University Frankfurt) in collaboration with Prof. Peter Spichtinger (University Mainz).

Cirrus clouds frequently occur in the tropopause region. They have a crucial impact on the thermodynamic 
structure of the tropopause region by diabatic processes (e.g. latent heat and radiation); temperature gradients 
and water vapour distributions are actively changed by these clouds. On the other hand, cirrus clouds are 
crucially affected by local dynamics, originating from gravity waves as well as dynamic and convective 
instabilities. The main goal of the project is to investigate the interaction of cirrus clouds and local 
dynamical processes, and their impact on the tropopause region. Using theoretical investigations with sophisticated 
mathematical methods as well as numerical modelling, we will investigate these interactions in order to develop 
new consistent parameterisations for the use in coarse grid models, finally.

The position to be filled will address the interaction of gravity waves and ice clouds in the tropopause region. 
It will also work at the representation of this interaction in climate models, by a corresponding extension of 
the new gravity-wave model MS-GWaM, recently implemented and validated in the weather and climate code ICON.

Information on the research group where the position will be located can be found at 
http://www.goethe-university-frankfurt.de/45681958/Theory-of-Atmospheric-Dynamics-and-Climate. Its focus is on 
scale interactions in atmospheric dynamics, applied e.g. to large-scale low-frequency variability or 
gravity-wave dynamics. Middle-atmosphere dynamics is another field of work. Methods employed are e.g. multi-scale 
asymptotics, stochastics, and numerical simulations. Inquiries should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Achatz 
(achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de).

TPChange offers a comprehensive and structured training for early career researchers. In addition to self-organized 
activities such as workshops, trainings and a guest program, the successful candidate will have the opportunity, 
if desired, to pursue international research visits. The consortium conducts an ambitious program to gradually 
enhance gender equality on all career levels.

Requirements
Applicants should have a very good PhD in meteorology, physics, applied mathematics, fluid dynamics, or a 
related field. Expected is a strong background in theory and/or modeling.

The university is committed to equal rights for women and men and therefore strongly encourages women to apply. 
Severely disabled persons are given priority in the case of equal qualifications.

Applications and deadline
Please send applications with reference to the code B07_PD_GUF as one single pdf file to achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de, 
including (i) a letter of motivation, (ii) a CV, (iii) copies of all relevant certificates, and at least two 
contacts for reference letters by 15.5.2022. For further information, please contact achatz@iau.uni-frankfurt.de.

We look forward to your application!

Convective and Volcanic Clouds (CVC) training school 2022

Seventh training school on Convective and Volcanic Clouds (CVC) detecting, monitoring and modeling
Nicolosi, Sicily, Italy 
5-13 September 2022
http://www.cvctrainingschool.org/  

The training school is supported and organized by researchers of the Università di Padova, the Istituto 
Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV), the National Research Council (CNR) and part of the H2020 
SESAR projects ALARM and SINOPTICA. 

Attending the school you will get an overview of the state of the art techniques and methods for detecting 
and monitoring the volcanic and convective clouds, you will know the different instruments and platforms 
allowing us to get the best performance in detecting such kind of clouds, you will be projected to the future 
learning about new missions planned for solving the main issues on these fields, you will be involved in real 
applications as early warning systems and modeling, you will directly analyze the data.

The school topics will range from satellite instruments such as IR sensors or GNSS to aircraft measurements 
like lidar and radar, from study of ash and SO2 clouds to tropical cyclones, mediterranean hurricanes, land 
and maritime convection.

The purpose of the School is to train students with outstanding research interest in the techniques allowing 
to detect, monitor, and model convective and volcanic clouds, to gain knowledge of the instruments and satellite 
missions (present and future) and to be able to support such kind of studies. The double aim is to create a school 
managed by young scientists already well established and recognized in their respective fields for young 
scientists willing to reinforce or develop their knowledge on atmospheric extreme events detection and monitoring 
for supporting policy makers, early warning systems and aviation safety.

The extreme atmospheric event cloud detection is a high multidisciplinary and challenging topic since the same 
techniques and instruments can be used for meteorology, volcanic monitoring, atmospheric physics and climate 
purposes. Within all these fields there are still many unsolved issues making this school fundamental for 
creating a new generation of scientists able to use the synergy of several different instruments and techniques. 
The air transportation became fundamental in the last decades for the World economy and social life, and volcanic 
or convective events can affect the regular management and operation creating large economic losses. This training 
school will support creating a new generation of scientists specialized on monitoring and detection of atmospheric 
extreme events supporting the safety of the citizens. Most of the young researchers are usually focused in a single 
subject (e.g. convection or volcanic eruption) and they are not in touch with final users to get their feedback, 
this school will be the occasion for broadening their horizons and for creating useful connections. We expect 
scientists and final users (such as pilots or early warning system technicians) meet during this course for 
discussing common goals and for learning from each other how to improve their work toward a proficient collaboration.

The CVC school 2022 will take place in Nicolosi (Italy) on the slopes of Etna volcano. During the CVC 2022 all 
the topics will be deepened, and the participants will get an added value from:
- a field measurement campaign they will be part of;
- an excursion to the Etna craters;
- laboratoires using professional softwares applied to real data;
- presenting their research to the other participants and to the lecturers.

Postdoc position France: Pollution & Machine Learning

POST-DOC Position MultiMod’Air
Duration: 24 months
Starting: June 2022

Keywords: Artificial intelligence - ANN - CNN - Meteorology - Pollution - Forecast

Summary
-------------
This post-doctoral proposal is part of the French Atomic Commission (CEA) project "MultiMod'Air", 
which consists in developing an « intelligent » prototype of air quality measurement and forecasting 
station within two years. The proposed work is to develop some bricks of Artificial Intelligence (AI) 
of the project: correction by ANN (Artificial Neuronal network) of the measurements obtained through 
low cost sensors, correction by ANN of weather forecasts at the station level, which are relatively 
simple treatments to implement. The actual research work will concern the development of an AI based 
pollution forecast at the station, trained by learning from past events.

Funding
------------
The funding is safe as it is an internal CEA project of the Moonshot type called "MultiMod'Air".

Improving environmental control
---------------------------------------------
CEA LAUNCHES THREE BREAKTHROUGH DEMONSTRATORS (MOONSHOT)
« The second challenge aims to revolutionize environmental monitoring by means of numerous miniaturized, 
accurate, low-cost, low-energy sensors that can also measure emerging pollutants and toxics such as 
ammonia. The goal is to spatially describe pollutant clouds in real time and to reliably predict pollution events 

MultiMod’Air project
-----------------------------
The MultiMod'Air project aims to improve the monitoring of outdoor air quality, particularly by integrating 
the measurement of an emerging pollutant such as ammonia: design an autonomous and transportable platform 
integrating multi-sensor measurement and data acquisition systems (weather, pollution, gamma radiation, 
etc.), with a communication capability (4G, Lora IOT…). Deploy these measurement systems in peri-urban areas 
(CEA Paris-Saclay site) and rural areas (CEA Cadarache site). Develop one or more "business" oriented data 
visualization interfaces; acquire massive amounts of data in real time and store them in a database. Choose 
low-energy data supply and transmission systems. Associate these data with meteorological data and 
pollution data collected by the Air Quality Associations (AirParif, AtmoSud). Analyze the data from 
multiple sensors independently or cross-referenced. Develop algorithms for the analysis and prediction 
of pollutant levels based on artificial intelligence approaches. An innovative and miniaturized chemical 
sensor module will be designed based on material chips (PaM) and having multi-detection potentialities.
The data processing algorithms will run on a workstation before being embedded or not. The innovative 
PaM sensor will be accompanied by a near-sensor measurement system, and in a later stage, as soon as 
it is integrated into the main station, it will include a self-learning system based on data acquired 
by a commercial sensor. At the level of the global platform, the adequacy of a work of partitioning, 
algorithm-architecture will be considered so that the calculations can be distributed: a) locally on 
the measurement systems closest to the sensor, b) on the database management system, c) on a centralized 
data processing system or d) on the business application associated with a specific use case. The 
MultiMod'Air project is based both on the development of new concepts such as the integration and 
learning of innovative sensors, and on the assembly and valorization of existing bricks such as the 
Constell'eau project of the CEA-DES or the "SHM Node" of the CEA-DRT. A first demonstrator will be 
deployed at the end of the project. This demonstration will pave the way for the integration of 
additional innovative sensors to measure concentrations of emerging pollutants, fine particles, 
viruses, etc. This concept of platform could be used in various environments requiring a description 
of the Outdoor Air Quality such as urban sites, industrial sites or more specific sites like nuclear 
power plants. MultiMod'Air is well adapted to the deployment of several wireless, mobile and communicating 
measurement stations to enrich the description of the environments and to describe possible relationships 
that could exist according to the location.


The postdoctoral subject
------------------------------------
Several AI bricks are to be studied in the MultiMod'Air project
1.      The data acquired through the low cost sensors contain biases or drifts inherent to the 
technology associated with the sensor, a part of the measurement deviations can be corrected by 
physical, statistical methods or by unitary AI learning associated with each sensor. This task 
ill be handled by the development teams of the innovative sensors, but processing can also be 
developed for low-cost commercial sensors before the arrival of new sensors at the end of the project. 
These processes will probably be embedded on the sensor acquisition board.
2.      The MultiMod'Air station is multi-sensor, and some measurement biases may be correlated to 
meteorological conditions (e.g. temperature or humidity influence). An additional correction to the 
unitary correction can be developed by using all the parameters measured by the station: physical, 
statistical and learning correction.
3.      Short-term weather forecasts (24 hours) are imperfect compared to local observations, especially 
due to topographical features that cannot be resolved by the forecast model (narrow valley, local 
variation of land cover, etc.). A local correction model by ANN (Artificial Neural Network) has been 
successfully developed on the Cadarache site, it is a very simple model which could be improved (sequential 
learning for example) and extended to the Saclay site.
4.      Air Quality Associations AtmoSud in the South-East of France carries out a pollution forecast 
based on statistical models associated with real time measurements, a yearly emission directory, meteorological 
forecasting and an Eulerian model for atmospheric chemistry forecasting. In collaboration with AtmoSud, 
we will propose a Machine Learning model based on real time measurements of the station, meteorological 
forecasts, and possibly the pollutants emission directory.
5.      An additional brick will be the selection of extraordinary events. Currently, the Air Quality 
Associations detect the overshooting of regulatory thresholds but are not equipped to detect exceptional 
events that do not trigger a threshold alert; as the station may be far from the exceptional source of 
pollution, atmospheric dilution may lead to the non-detection of an important event. An example could 
be a plume due to a fraudulent use of heavy fuel oil by a ship docking in Marseille harbour. The expected 
pollution forecast made by step 4 will allow the development of an algorithm for the recognition of "abnormal" 
events, using learning based on the numerical generation of abnormal data added to the "normal" forecast.

Welcoming Lab
-----------------------
The post-doctoral fellow will be hosted at the CEA Cadarache site; his office will be in the DRT-DSUD laboratory 
to be able to work in close collaboration with the AI engineer who will assist him in the data processing. 
The post-doctoral fellow will be able to fully dedicate himself to the innovative aspects while the AI specialist 
will be able to manage the data processing, the development of the models.... Business trips are to be expected 
in Marseille to work with the AtmoSud specialists.

3 year fixed term position: Engineer in metrology and experimental techniques for greenhouse gas measurement at LSCE in the ICOS ATC metrology laboratory

We are pleased to inform you of the opening of a fixed-term position (3 years) at LSCE:

Engineer in metrology and experimental techniques for greenhouse gas measurement at LSCE in the ICOS ATC metrology laboratory

 
Context :

The Climate and Environmental Sciences Laboratory (LSCE), located on the CEA site in Saclay (near Paris), 
coordinates research programs based on in-situ observation of greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O). The 
scientific objective is to better understand the processes of emission and capture of greenhouse gases 
(GHG) by human activities and natural processes. For that purpose, the LSCE is measuring and studying 
since many years changes in the concentrations of GHGs in the "atmospheric background", in particular 
through the European research infrastructure ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observation System) for which the 
LSCE plays a leading role by being in operational charge of its Atmosphere Thematic Center (ATC). Since 
several years, through several research projects, the LSCE has also been involved in the measurement of 
greenhouse gases close to anthropogenic sources such as industrial sites (landfills, wastewater treatment 
plants, refineries, etc.) and cities in order to estimate the emission fluxes. These new prospective and 
operational activities of the LSCE require the development of new measurement systems based on existing 
sensors on the market and/or prototypes from research projects. In order to meet scientific needs and 
operational constraints, these new multi-parameter measurement systems (including GHG) must be modular, 
robust, autonomous, easy to install and interoperable with existing systems in particular, while limiting the 
overall cost in order to facilitate large-scale deployment. As part of the structuring equipment for research 
(EQUIPEX) OBS4CLIM, the LSCE's mission is to develop and make available its metrological test platform to 
characterize these new developments of sensors and to define the appropriate operating mode (calibration 
strategy, quality control, etc.).

Mission :

The engineer will join the LSCE within the ICOS ATC (Atmospheric Thematic Center) team where he or she will

Postdocs in Greenland climate change at Universities of Lincoln and Exeter

Postdocs in Greenland climate change at Universities of Lincoln and Exeter

We wish to recruit two postdoctoral scientists to participate in the NERC-funded GreenBlock project, which 
examines the causes and consequences of changes in Greenland atmospheric blocking. The successful applicant 
with join a large team of world-leading scientists from the Universities of Lincoln, Exeter, Reading, Oxford, 
and Sheffield, the National Oceanography Centre, Met Office, and international partners.

The project aims to provide a major advance in our understanding of the causes of atmospheric circulation 
changes (specifically changes in blocking or persistent high air pressure) over Greenland, their relation 
to variations in the North Atlantic atmospheric and oceanic circulation, their consequences for climate 
change over Greenland and the wider North Atlantic-European region, and their impacts on Greenland Ice Sheet mass loss.

We are seeking talented individuals with experience of statistical analysis and/or modelling, and preferably 
a strong background in meteorology and/or climate science, to join our team.  The successful applicant will 
be responsible for conducting research, publication, and outreach activities on the project.

The post at the University of Lincoln, under the immediate supervision of Prof Edward Hanna, will study the 
observed recent increase in summertime Greenland blocking, its causes and impacts on Greenland ice melt, and 
its representation in climate models.

https://jobs.lincoln.ac.uk/Vacancy.aspx?ref=COS878

The post at the University of Exeter, under the immediate supervision of Prof James Screen and Dr Jennifer Catto, 
will focus on climate model projections of Greenland blocking and its effects on European weather.

3 Research scientist / Group leader positions (f/m/d) available at MPI Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany

3 Research scientist / Group leader positions (f/m/d) available (initally limited to 5 years)

The newly established department of Biogeochemical Signals at the MPI for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany, 
investigates large-scale signals of biospheric processes and their feedbacks to the climate system. We 
integrate bottom-up process-driven modeling with top-down constraints inferred from remote-sensing, 
atmospheric observations and atmospheric inversions. We aim to utilize novel data sources to develop a 
better predictive understanding of important land-based processes at local to global scales. Our goal is 
to contribute to a better understanding of recent biogeochemical patterns and trends, as well as to 
improve predictions of land-climate feedbacks and of the consequences of climate mitigation efforts in 
future decades.

Within the overall framework of the department’s biosphere and inverse modelling activities, we seek 
candidates with a forward-looking, interdisciplinary, observation- and model-informed research vision who 
have a strong interest in terrestrial biogeochemical cycles and their interaction with the global climate 
system. We invite candidates to propose research projects in one of the following areas:

·       Improved understanding and representation of ecosystem processes in models for predicting future 
        ecosystem stability and resilience (in particular nutrient cycling, resilience to drought and temperature 
        extremes, disturbance dynamics);

·       Predicting/forecasting seasonal to long-term biosphere-atmosphere interactions combining in-situ 
        and remotely-sensed land surface parameters/observations with process modelling;

·       Novel atmospheric tracers or remote-sensing observations as large-scale constraints on land 
        biosphere dynamics, for instance using and extending the regional to global inverse modelling framework 
        (such as CarboScope) to test global models;

Research approaches may focus on conceptual modelling, model-data syntheses, or development and application 
of generalised global dynamic ecosystem models and/or hybrid models. We also invite applications aiming to 
combine model-driven and experimental research through monitoring campaigns or mesocosm/field experiments. 
The proposed research should contribute to the use and/or further development of central research tools of 
the department, e.g. the QUINCY/ICON-Land biosphere model and the regional to global scale CarboScope 
inverse modelling systems, and/or make use of data collected by the department. Collaboration between the 
three positions is highly encouraged.

Zur effektiven Reduktion der Klimawirkung des Luftverkehrs sind neben den CO2- auch die 
Nicht-CO2-Emissionen und deren Effekte, wie z.B. die Bildung langlebiger Kondensstreifen, 
zu verringern. Die Stärke dieser Nicht-CO2-Effekte hängt bedeutend von der aktuellen Wetterlage 
ab. Daher kann die Klimawirkung jedes einzelnen Fluges reduziert werden, indem der Flug entlang 
von so genannten "ökoeffizienten Flugtrajektorien" geführt wird. Dabei werden Regionen, in denen 
die Emissionen zu einem hohen Klimaantrieb führen, möglichst gemieden. Dies erfordert eine verlässliche 
Modellierung der relevanten Größen in den Vorhersagemodellen.

Ziel der Projektstelle innerhalb des Leuchtturmprojekts D-KULT (Demonstrator Klima- und 
Umweltfreundlicher Lufttransport) ist es, die mit dem NWV System des DWD erstellten Vorhersagen

Postdoctoral Researcher in Atmosphere-Biosphere Coupling in the USMILE ERC Synergy Grant and NFDI4Earth | MPI for Biogeochemistry, Germany

Dear colleagues,

The Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena has a vacancy for a Postdoctoral Researcher
(m/f/d) with strong scientific programming skills in the Department of Biogeochemical Integration. 
The position is primarily assigned to the Atmosphere-Biosphere Coupling, Climate and Causality 
Research Group. The group focuses on the feedbacks and causal links between the terrestrial biosphere 
and atmosphere in terms of carbon, water and energy fluxes and how this coupled system changes with 
increasing CO2. We use models of varying complexity (conceptual models to fully coupled Earth system 
models) and combine our research with statistical analysis and modelling (machine learning to hybrid 
modelling) based on various Earth observation data streams.

This position will mainly support the activities of the group related to the ongoing projects in the
NFDI Consortium NFDI4Earth and the ERC Synergy Grant USMILE. The aim of this work is to build
on the Earth System Data Lab (ESDL) and use statistical learning to isolate and attribute forced
signals in key Earth system variables to various external drivers. This observation-based driver 
attribution work will provide the basis for data-driven constraints and parametrizations in our
developments of hybrid Earth system models (ICON model).

Project background:
Dynamical oceanographic processes are increasingly understood as being instrumental in
creating biophysical niches that are exploited by animals to increase foraging efficiency and
conversely avoid predation, whilst also transporting larvae between seemingly spatially
discrete locations. Internal waves encourage fish schooling over submarine banks and
seamounts, attracting foraging porpoises [1] and sharks [2]. In the open ocean, basking
sharks track thermal fronts [3,4] whose convergent currents accumulate zooplankton.
Coherent structures arising through instability of ocean currents are tracked by birds due to
increased food abundance within them [5], a dynamical process similar to the generation of
warm core eddies preferred by great white sharks due to richer prey fields within them
compared to cold-core eddies [6]. The background circulation throughout the ocean, but
particularly near to the numerous reefs and atolls where dynamic processes are intensified
and particulate matter originates, is further critical to the transport of suspended particles
including microscopic larvae from animals and corals but also plastic fragments. The benthic
community is directly impacted by internal waves which are implicated in the relief of thermal
stress experienced by corals as they are flushed with cooler water upwelled from depth over
slopes surrounding atolls and seamounts.

Understanding and modelling the spatiotemporal variability in oceanographic processes
responsible for generating these biologically-important features is thus critical to the
identification of key locations within ecosystems of the western Indian Ocean within which
specific species aggregate, rendering them especially susceptible to exploitation. We
propose the development of a multi-scale numerical modelling approach to identify the
dynamical oceanographic processes and resulting flow fields responsible for shaping
regional ecosystems of the western Indian Ocean. The project will identify biophysical
‘hotspots’ and trajectories of particles including larvae, enabling the design of surveys to
detect the enhancement in biological activity and informing the results of the observational
studies.

This project combines the proven expertise of the University of Plymouth, theUniversity of
Cape Town and the South African Environmental Observation Networks’s numerical
modelling teams. The UK (Plymouth) team has a track record in the development of high
resolution Massachusetts Institute of Technology general circulation model (MITgcm, [9])
simulations to assess ocean dynamics operating at the finescale whilst the South African
(Cape Town) team has published numerous papers on their CROCO (Coastal and Regional
Ocean Community Model) model simulations of the evolution of dynamics throughout the
Western Indian Ocean.The partnership established within this project will see the sharing of
modelling approaches, manifested as the use of the basin-scale conditions as boundary
conditions for initialising the high resolution regional models.

Postdoc/PhD scope of research
The PhD and postdoc positions available will focus on developing high resolution CROCO
simulations (nested from the basin-scale to high resolution regional domains of key
localities) applied to the western Indian Ocean (WIO). Various modelling approaches (e.g
sensitivity tests, lagrangian particle tracking, biogeochemical coupling, downscaling over
individual atolls using Delft 3D at very high resolutions) will be used to understand the
implication of climate variability and ocean features and their variability on the biological
‘hotspots’ of the WIO. The postdoc and PhD should work closely as a team to cover all of the
aspects of this project, while the postdoc will additionally be involved with capacity
development programs (i.e. numerical modelling training workshops). Both the PhD and
Postdoc candidates will contribute to the development of high resolution ocean modelling
within South Africa and will be expected to present at national and international conferences
and mentor or supervise students where possible.

Given this is a collaborative project with the University of Plymouth there will be scope for
the PhD and Postdoc to spend time with the collaborators in Plymouth for skills development
and project meetings.

Selection criteria:
- For the postdoc: PhD degree ,obtained within the past five (5) years, related to
physical oceanography or atmospheric science, demonstrable numerical modelling
experience (preferably CROCO/ROMS), proficient in coding (python and/or matlab)
and a strong publication track record. Expertise in western Indian Ocean dynamics
would be a strong advantage. Candidates should not have been in permanent
employment or held academic positions.
- For the PhD: MSc degree related to physical oceanography or atmospheric science,
experience with coding (preferably python and/or matlab)
- Creative, responsible, diligent, critical, analytical and innovative mindset
- Ability to work independently and as part of a team
- Excellent written and oral communication skills in English
