The Laboratoire d’Océanographie Physique et Spatiale, Ifremer invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in physical oceanography. This 18-month position will be located in Brest, France.

The goal of the project is to investigate the variability of the Jan Mayen Current and the Greenland gyre. The work will be based on in-situ observations, mainly collected in 2015-2016 by the service hydrographique et océanographique de la Marine, as part of their "Grand Nord" program, and in particular a set of seven moorings. Satellite data (of ocean and sea ice), hydrological data available for this region, as well as model outputs will be used in order to provide a wider spatio-temporal context to the mooring data.

A PhD in physical oceanography, meteorology, climate science, or geophysical fluid dynamics is required, with skills in observational data analysis. Knowledge in statistics, experience in programming with Matlab or Python, and experience in polar research would be an asset. The ability to communicate and write in English is required. Additionally, the candidate must be within six years after their PhD defense and cannot have been awarded a previous postdoctoral fellowship from Ifremer.

Applications must include a detailed curriculum vitae, a letter of motivation, a list of publications, and the names and email addresses of at least two references.

Application materials should be submitted via email to Camille Lique at camille.lique [at] ifremer.fr.
