The person recruited for this post-doctoral position will conduct research as part of the “DIGUES” scientific program, funded by the National Research Agency (https://www.lgp.cnrs.fr/digues/). She/He will be responsible for the design and construction of evolution scenarios for dikes and dikes' systems, in the face of the physical and social changes envisaged over the period 2021-2050. On the basis of scenarios pre-constructed by the research team for each of the 7 study sites of the program (i.e. “located scenarios”), and after studying the methods commonly used in the construction of scenarios, he/she will construct “generic scenarios”, potentially reproducible, making it possible to determine which scenarios are possible in a given diked area (riverine or coastal) and under what conditions. To communicate on these generic scenarios, in a second step, graphic models will be developed.

This conceptual work will be achieved in close relation with two members of the research program responsible for this task, C. Carré (UMR Ladyss) and L. Goeldner (UMR LGP). The obtained scenarios will be presented in spring 2023 at a seminar bringing together researchers and dikes' managers. This conceptual research will lead to the writing of a collective article on the method of developing generic scenarios from located scenarios.


• Bibliographical research and search for examples of scenarios' construction and of communication on scenarios.
• Improvement of certain located scenarios of the program (sites of the Marais Poitevin, Authie Bay, Ile-de-France - the other 4 sites of the programm are studied within the framework of a PhD).
• Construction of generic scenarios from the bibliography and the 7 located scenarios of the program.
• Design and development of graphic models facilitating communication on the generic scenarios obtained.
• Participation in the organization of an end-of-program seminar bringing together managers of dyked sites and researchers, and communication on the method and the generic scenarios obtained.
• Participation - as the 1st author - in the writing of a collective article in English on the method of developing generic scenarios from situated scenarios.
• If possible, participation - as a co-author - in the writing of a collective summary article, in French, on the results of the DIGUES program.
• Possible short-term research trips, in France and/or in Europe.


▪ PhD preferably in Geography or Planning, and possibly in another discipline of Human and Social Sciences.
▪ Scientific skills in scenario development.
▪ Skills in writing and scientific communication.
▪ Ability to interact within the framework of collective and interdisciplinary research.
▪ Oral communication and extension skills.
▪ Adaptation to possible particular working conditions related to the Covid pandemic.

Work Context

The recruiting research laboratory is UMR 8591 LGP (Laboratoire de Géographie Physique), currently located at 1 Place Aristide Briand, in Meudon (https://www.lgp.cnrs.fr/) but the laboratory will move to Thiais in July 2022, on the CNRS campus, at 2 rue Henri Dunant.

The recruited person will be present full-time face-to-face in the laboratory, when they will not be in the library or in the field. She will benefit from a shared workspace and will be able to benefit from the advantages of the Thiais Campus.

She/He will be supervised by the Professors Lydie Goeldner-Gianella, head of the "DIGUES" research program, and Catherine Carré (UMR Ladyss) and will collaborate with other members of the research program, attached to several research laboratories (https://www.lgp.cnrs.fr /digues/scientistiques.php). She/He will also participate in the scientific seminars of the DIGUES research program, currently in its third year (https://www.lgp.cnrs.fr/digues/) and in the activities of the “Fluvial and coastal hydro-systems” theme of the laboratory ( https://www.lgp.cnrs.fr/hydrosystemes-fluviaux-et-cotiers/).
