Job Posting: CNRM Climate Research Fellowship in France

October 19, 2017

Applications are invited for a 18-month postdoctoral position starting in February 2018. The successful applicant will be contracted by Météo-France and will be based at the “Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques” in Toulouse, France, within the climate research group. The net salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience, ranging from 2800€ to 3300€, after most of the taxes and health insurance premiums have been deducted

The proposed postdoctoral fellowship is funded by the European Union through the Horizon 2020 APPLICATE project. The main objective is to contribute to the 1st workpackage focusing on the development of advanced diagnostics to be used to constrain weather and climate models. The task is here exclusively on climate models and encompasses both the development and (mostly) the application of such metrics to evaluate CMIP5 and CMIP6 models and, possibly, constrain their global climate projections.


  • A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences or an engineer diploma obtained before the date of the application.
  • Experience with mid-latitude atmospheric dynamics and teleconnections.
  • Strong programming skills in post-processing and visualization software (e.g., CDO, NCL, R), as well as experience in handling large data sets.
  • Strong communication and organizational skills and an ability to effectively communicate results of scientific research in APPLICATE meetings and international workshops. Moreover, an experience in using climate diagnostic packages such as ESMValTool will be welcome.

For full consideration, an application letter including a detailed statement of research interest, along with a curriculum vitae (including research experience, publications and conferences, programming skills and different language practises) and the names, telephone and email address of 2 referees should be sent to and before October 31st 2017.
