Position Announcement

 

Position Title:  PRE-DOCTORAL FELLOW IN MOUNTAIN CLIMATE MODELING IN THE CONTEXT OF CLIMATE CHANGE

 

  

Description:

With the objective of assessing and highlighting the characteristics of climate change in the Atlas Mountain region taking into account the GHG and mineral dust aspects, the PhD program is organized over four years as follows:

  1. A first year within the pre-doctoral college that includes multidisciplinary training, training through research, as well as preparation for Toefl / Toeic and other tests.
  2. "Stop or go" decision at the end of the year in view of the results obtained.
  3. In the positive case, the doctorate will be started for a period of 3 years within IWRI on a subject related to climate modeling and climate applications. The focus will be primarily on the modeling of mountain climate in Morocco including snow related aspects. Physical parametrizations and the role of mineral aerosols will also be concerned by the analysis and improvements. The PhD will be co-supervised by a partner academic institution recognized in the field of climate modeling.

The doctoral period includes also training courses outside Morocco (mainly in France) within recognized partner institutions in the field of climate modeling.

 

 

Key duties:

  • Model evaluation based on different observational datasets
  • Model parametrization improvement
  • Carry out the necessary tests to verify and validate the features of the model components
  • Prepare and run the necessary model experiments
  • Scientific publishing in international journals
