The Laboratory of Climate and Environmental Sciences (LSCE, Paris, France) and the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO, Marseille, France) are seeking candidates for a PhD in Mediterranean Mercury Modeling.
The PhD objective is to investigate the impact of climate change and atmospheric forcing on the Mediterranean Sea and its marine biogeochemistry. The strategy is based on the use and analysis of 3D atmospheric and oceanic models, especially the regional coupled NEMOMed-PISCES model that simulates the dynamics and biogeochemical cycles of the Mediterranean at high resolution (1/12°). This study is part of the national MISTRALS and the international GEOTRACES programs.
The PhD student will based at the Laboratoire du Sciences du Climat et d’Environnement (LSCE) and collaborate intensely with the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO) in Marseilles, France. S/he will help with the validation and interpretation of all acquired data and be in charge of the implementation of the data into numerical models. The PhD student will be lead author of at least 2 publications. Although the observational data for PhD project is already acquired, the student will be given the opportunity to learn about the observational aspects, ultra-trace clean techniques, participate to field campaigns.
