Postdoctoral position available at the GeoHydrodynamics and Environment Research group (University of Li├Ęge, Belgium)


Numerical ocean models have contributed significantly to improve our understanding of the dynamics of the ocean. However such models are only approximations, and observations are needed to reduce the uncertainty of these models. Data assimilation allows to combine model results and observations in a statistically optimal way.

The GHER participates in European and Belgian projects aiming to apply data assimilation techniques to complex coupled models and assimilation of new data types (such as surface currents measurements). The GHER develops also advanced data analysis approaches for satellite and in situ data.

In the frame of these projects, a postdoctoral position is opened. The tentative start date of the contract will be the 1st May 2014. The position requires a degree in civil engineering, physics, applied mathematics or related field. The applicant is expected to have some experience with ocean models (such as ROMS), statistics or data processing. She/he should also have experience in programming (using languages such as Fortran, Matlab/Octave, C/C++ or Python). Good English skills (oral and written) are also required. The salary of this full time position will depend on the qualifications of the candidate. The contract will cover a period of one year. The contract might be extended depending on progress and the availability of new funding.

Interested persons are invited to submit an application dossier consisting of a motivation letter, a curriculum vitae with full contact information, copies of diplomas and their PhD thesis to our secretary C. Peelen (oceanphys@ulg.ac.be). The review of applications is open and will continue until the position is filled.
