The mission will consist of analyzing climate change scenarios in the Grand Est Region, and participating in the development of a methodology for analyzing thermal comfort in the Strasbourg Eurometropolis and the energy needs of buildings under different renovation scenarios.


The researcher will be expected to participate in:
- The analysis of climate change scenarios in the Grand Est region
- Modeling the impacts of climate change scenarios on the local climate, up to the urban scale (in particular the urban climate of the Strasbourg Eurometropolis).
- Assessing the impact of this climate change on the energy needs of buildings (heating and cooling).
- To lead discussions with the project partners
- Write a report
- Participate in the writing of scientific articles

Work Context

The CNRS is the French National Center for Scientific Research. The Laboratoire Image Ville Environnement (LIVE) is one of the research laboratories of the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg. LIVE is attached to the CNRS institutes of Ecology and Environment (INEE), and Human and Social Sciences (INSHS). It is a laboratory that brings together mainly geographers, but also other researchers from different disciplines. The research group "Energy, Air Pollution and Climate" (EPAC) is composed of atmospheric physicists and chemists: 3 permanent researchers and lecturers, 2 PhD students, 3 engineers. This group is involved in the ADEME AMBRES project "Multicriteria approach for a resilient and healthy building", which aims to take into account climate change in decisions concerning the building sector. The researcher will be integrated into the EPAC group. He/she will be involved in a collaboration with several private organizations (OCTOPUS LAB, ENGIE, NOBATEK), and the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE) of the Institut Pierre Simon Laplace (IPSL). The working environment is that of a modeling laboratory: fixed desktop PCs, laptops, and access to an intensive computing center (Mesocentre de calcul de l'Université de Strasbourg).

Constraints and risks

Some short trips are to be expected between Strasbourg, Paris and Lille mainly.

Additional Information

This offer is part of the AMBRES project, which aims to develop a modeling system and a multi-criteria approach that can help guide the design and renovation of buildings. The aim is to provide tools to define the best strategies for the residential and tertiary sectors to achieve the objectives of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions as quickly as possible, while ensuring maximum comfort for the population in a context of climate change.
