Numerical ensemble simulations in oceanography
The MEOM Ocean modelling Group at the Institute of Geosciences and Environmental research, Grenoble (IGE), is seeking to recruit an Ocean Modeller to increase its marine ecosystem modelling capability. The objective of the mission will be to perform ensemble numerical simulations of the global ocean biogeochemistry, using the coupled NEMO-PISCES community model in a ¼° global configuration. The ensemble simulations will be performed on HPC computing facilities available at the national CNRS IDRIS centre. A key part of the work will be to design and test test a variety of stochastic parameterizations schemes representing unresolved, or poorly resolved, physical-biogeochemical ocean processes. The numerical simulations will be further used to generate ensemble statistics required to invert satellite ocean colour observations.


This work will contribute to the preparation of the newly funded H2020 SEAMLESS project, dedicated to the long-term development of the European Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Services (CMEMS). The selected candidate will work in close collaboration with P. Brasseur and J.-M. Brankart (CNRS) and E. Cosme (Université Grenoble Alpes) at IGE (see links below). He/she will be encouraged to be proactive in deploying innovative methodologies in the context of other projects developed by the MEOM Group.

Candidates must preferably hold a PhD in geosciences and/or applied mathematics, with practical experience in data analytics and/or numerical modelling of the geophysical environment. This includes a good understanding of large numerical codes (e.g. in Fortran90 or C, ideally with some knowledge of parallel/distributed computing). Previous experience with the NEMO numerical community code will be particularly appreciated.

Work Context

The Institute of Environmental Geosciences (IGE) is a public research laboratory under the supervision of CNRS/INSU, IRD, University Grenoble Alpes (UGA) and Grenoble-INP.
It gathers about 240 people including 145 permanent members (researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers), and about 95 PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and staff on fixed-term contracts. The Institute also hosts several dozen trainees and scientific visitors each year. The Institue is installed on three sites of the University Campus of Grenoble (sites Molière, OSUG-B, and Bergès). IGE is one of the main laboratories of the Observatory of Sciences of the Universe of Grenoble (OSUG) which is a federative structure of INSU.
The selected candidate will carry out its mission within the MEOM team of IGE. He/she will collaborate with researchers affiliated to the SEAMLESS partners and from Mercator Ocean International, which is the entrusted entity in charge of the implementation of the CMEMS in the Copernicus programme.
