Work Context

The Institute for Environmental Geosciences (IGE) is a public research institute under the affiliation of CNRS/INSU,
IRD, University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA) and Grenoble-INP. It brings together about 250 people, including 150
permanent members (researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers) and about a hundred contractual agents
(doctoral students, postdocs, engineers and technicians). The institute also welcomes several dozen trainees and
scientific visitors every year. It is located on three sites of the Grenoble University Campus (GLACIOLOGY, OSUG-B,
and Bergès sites). IGE is one of the main institutes within the Observatoire des Sciences de l'Univers de Grenoble
(OSUG) which is a federative structure of INSU.

The selected candidate will be affected in the CryoDyn team at IGE, which has a focus on ice dynamics and
connections to the climate system. The person will be supervised by Nicolas Jourdain (CR-CNRS).
