Surface Temperature Downscaling in Arctic regions18 months, starting 1st May 2013
A postdoctoral position is proposed by the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE, Gif-sur-Yvette, France), and the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et de Géophysique de l’Environnement (LGGE, Grenoble, France), in close collaboration with the CARTEL laboratory (Pr. A. Royer, Université de Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada)
The European project FP7-PAGE21 aims to better understand and quantify the vulnerability of permafrost environments to a changing global climate and to investigate the feedback mechanisms associated with increasing greenhouse gas emissions from permafrost zones. Within this project, remote sensing data products will be developed for model validation and upscaling of site measurements. For this purpose, we have proposed to combine thermal infrared and microwave surface measurements to estimate the surface temperature at regional scale over the main project sites.
Candidates should submit, by email, a cover letter with a statement of research interests, a CV, as well as the names and addresses of two referees before 30 December 2012 to Catherine Ottlé, LSCE-Orme, CEA-Orme des Merisiers, F-91191 Gif-sur-Yvette, Cedex, France (email@example.com ), Michel Fily, LGGE, BP 96, F-38402 Saint-Martin d’Hères cedex, France(firstname.lastname@example.org ) and Alain Royer, 2500 Bd Université, Sherbrooke, Qc J1K 2R1 Canada (email@example.com ).
Review of applicants will begin soon after the deadline and will be continued until the position is filled. Salary will depend on the previous experience and C.V. of the successful candidate, in agreement with legal and employer regulations.
