Missions

The Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (LMD, IPSL, Paris, France) is looking for a post-doc to model the photochemistry of the past Martian atmospheres (in the framework of the ERC project “Mars Through Time”)

Activities

Scientific context
At LMD we are developing a set of 3D climate models to better understand the past environments of planet Mars, to explain the geological and mineralogical record, and to assess the habitability of Mars throughout its history. This position is funded by the European Research Council under the “Mars Through Time” project (ERC advanced grant).
Research activity
The goal of the post-doctoral research will be to adapt the photochemical models that have been developed with our partner laboratory LATMOS into the LMD climate models, to address burning questions in Mars science such as: What was the chemical environment on Mars at high and low obliquities? Did Mars experience periods of highly oxidizing conditions that may have destroyed possible bio-signatures in the subsurface? Did photochemistry lead to the presence of greenhouse gases allowing a mild climate on early Mars ? etc.

Skills

The candidate should hold a PhD in atmospheric or planetary sciences, ideally with skills in atmospheric photochemistry and numerical modeling and programming (Fortran).

Work Context

The Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique is specialised in the study of the Earth atmosphere (Observations and numerical modelling). The Planetology LMD team also studies the environment on other worlds (Mars, Venus, Giant Planets, Titan, Pluto, Exoplanets). Within this group, the Mars Through Time project gathers PhD students, numerical engineers and post-doc working together on the modeling of the past environment of planet Mars. This particular project will be conducted in close collaboration with experts in photochemistry from the LATMOS laboratory (Franck Lefevre, based in the same building than LMD in Paris). External collaboration, notably with geologists, will be set up.
