Post-doctoral/Young Scientist Position on Greenhouse gas emissions monitoring and evaluation at Laboratory for Sciences of Climate and Environment, France
Under the Copernicus Atmospheric Service (https://atmosphere.copernicus.eu) portfolio and the Horizon Europe CAMEO project (https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101082125/fr), the LSCE is looking for a motivated post–doctoral or young data scientist to work on:
- Development and timely provision of data quantifying the daily emissions of CO2 from fossil fuel burning and cement production at national scale based on near–real–time activity data assembled from the Carbon Monitor project (https://carbonmonitor.org);
- Evaluation of daily CO2 emissions against national inventories and other relevant datasets;
- Improvement of methodologies used to derive daily CO2 emissions from activity data, including the use of satellite proxies and socio–economic indicators;
- Evaluation of atmospheric inversions results against regional and local estimates of greenhouse gas emissions for fossil fuel CO2 emissions and CH4 anthropogenic emissions.
This work will be performed at LSCE, in collaboration with ECMWF, partners of the CAMEO project and the Carbon Monitor international team led by Tsinghua University in China.
Expected start of the position: Spring 2023
Deadline: until the vacancy is filled
