Shom, the French national hydrographic service, is offering a postdoctoral position in marine science starting in February 2021. The appointee will participate to the project MELANGE 2020-2022, which examines "Real time measurements of sediment fluxes in coastal zones using gliders”. This project aims at developing operational in situ observation of currents and turbidity (water clarity) by using a glider equipped with acoustic and optical sensors. Duties will include embarkations on oceanographic research vessels.
Candidates should hold a PhD in marine geoscience with knowledge in computing, signal processing of oceanographic data, including experience in primary production, sediment transport and ocean colour remote sensing.
To apply, send a CV and cover letter by email to “recrutementshom [dot] fr” before November 15th, 2020. The reference of the post is: MELANGE_SEDIM.
