This postdoctoral position is funded by the climate services convention project.The objective is to quantify the uncertainties linked to the use of a statistical-dynamical downscalling method to estimate the effects of urban scenarios on the urban heat island and its impacts.

The postdoctoral researcher will evaluate how urban scenarios (such as green roofs, urban expansion) modify the urban heat island near the surface and above the surface boundary layer. This will be done in coupled mode with the atmospheric mdoel MesoNH for weather types for which large impacts are expected.


- atmospheric simulations at high resolution (250m) with the MesoNH model over Paris region
- management of urban scenarios for use in MesoNH model
- evaluation of meteorological impacts (urban heat island at 2m and 50m) and other impacts (energy consumption, thermal comfort, ...)
- - analysis of the influence of the scenarios on the urban heat island at 50m, and its implications on the use of a downscalling method from regional climate mdoel to urban scale (developed int he project)
- finalizatino of results


- modelling with the atmospheric model MesoNH
- python or R languages
- PhD in atmospheric sciences
- knowledge in atmospheric boundary layer and fluxes between surface and atmosphere.
- capability to work in a research team

Work Context

- Work will be done in VILLE team of CNRM
- office hours work
