Contexte de travail
The IGE studies climate, the functioning of the planet and its evolution in terms of pollution, global changes and risks for societies. Historically, the IGE conducts its research in regions with significant societal and environmental issues: the polar regions, the intertropical zone, and mountain regions.
The average number of staff member in the laboratory is about 330, including 190 permanent members (researchers, teacher-researchers, engineers, technicians and administrative staff) and about 140 doctoral students, post-doctoral students and staff on fixed-term contracts. Each year, the laboratory welcomes about 120 trainees and scientific visitors. The IGE is housed in four buildings on the Grenoble University Campus (Glaciology building, OSUG-B, Maison Climat Planète and INRAE-Grenoble Saint Martin d'Hères).
The IGE is one of the main laboratories of the Observatoire des Sciences de l'Univers de Grenoble (OSUG) which is a federative structure of the INSU.
The researcher will carry out his mission within the Ice3 team of the IGE and will be placed under the responsibility of Frédéric PARRENIN.
The researcher work is part of the European H2020 Beyond EPICA project, which involves 10 nations and aims at drilling a 1.5 million years ice core in central Antarctica. The aim of the postdoc will be to improve modeling of the age of the ice in the vicinity of the Beyond EPICA ice core.
Contraintes et risques
The research will be carried out in either French or English, however it is expected that the non-French speaking candidate will strive to learn the basics of French in order to facilitate communication and integration into the laboratory.
The research will mainly involve modeling and data analysis on a computer and does not present specific risks.
