The post-doc work will consist in exploring the potential feedbacks of upper-trophic levels on lower trophic levels and on ocean biogeochemistry through the use of a newly developed end-to-end ecosystem model (NEMO-PISCES-APECOSM). The impacts of climate change on these potential feedbacks will also be assessed thanks to the coupling with the IPSL climate model.
The work will be carried out at the Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace (Paris), but will require frequent visits / longer stay in Montpellier within the MARine Biodiversity, Exploitation and Conservation (MARBEC) lab.


Developments of the model NEMO-PISCES-APECOSM representing marine ecosystem (Fortran)
Numerical Experiments in climatological conditions and under climate change forcing.
Analysis of simulation results using post-processing tools (python, matlab, ...)
Summaries and publication of results


Knowledge in oceanography & training in Marine biogeochemistry.
Computer skills, modeling, especially Fortran
Synthetic spirit and good writing skills
Good command of English essential (written / oral)

Work Context

The CIGOEF project builds on recent advances in marine ecosystem modelling with the developement of an end-end ecosystem model (NEMO-PISCES-APECOSM, Aumont et al. GBC 2018), which has been coupled to the IPSL Earth System Model to project the impact of climate change on marine ecosystems (Lefort et al. GCB 2013). CIGOEF aims at further refining the representation of the marine ecosystem within this modelling framework. CIGOEF will study the effects of climate change on the bacterial loop and jellyfish populations at the global scale, and quantify their feedbacks to the carbon cycle and the climate system. It will study the impacts of climate change on tuna resources, fisheries and markets, quantify their vulnerability and study alternative adaptation strategies through the development of integrated scenarios.
