The work will take place within the H2020-PROTECT European project, which aims to analyse the evolution of the
land-based cryosphere, and to provide sea level rise projections, with their uncertainty, at global, regional, and local scales.
Planned activities include:
- Production and analysis of numerical simulations (ocean/ice-sheet).
- Preparation of scientific articles.
- Communication of results (international meetings, project workshops).
- Contribution to the team activities at IGE (seminars, meetings, students training).
The expected skills are the following:
- Strong bases in physical oceanography or fluid dynamics.
- Strong script programming skills (Python, Matlab,…).
- Experience in ocean or ice-sheet modelling.
- Good English level (spoken and written).
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).
