Contexte :
This postdoc position is opened in the framework of AI chair OceaniX ( dedicated to physics-informed AI for the monitoring and surveillance of the oceans. OceaniX chair gathers an interdisciplinary group with expertise in numerical modeling, applied math deep learning, remote sensing and ocean science to leverage AI technologies and paradigms to address key challenges in ocean modeling and forecasting, observing system design and control, surveillance and monitoring of maritime activities. OceaniX chair also benefits from the strong academy-industry partnerships (eg, Ifremer, CNES, CLS, NavalGroup, Eodyn, OceanDataLab, OceanNext…).

Sujet :
The successful candidate shall develop cutting-edge collaborative research activities for physics-informed emulators [Nonnenmacher et al., 2021] for the simulation and forecasting of ocean dynamics with a strong interest in the ability to fully exploit multimodal observation datasets. Recent advances within our group on related topics [e.g., Fablet et al., 2021; Ouala et al., 2020; Roy et al., 2021, Frezat et al., 2021] could provide a relevant basis for novel broad-impact contributions. Specific case-studies on subgrid-scale parameterization, ocean-atmosphere extreme dynamics (e.g., hurricanes, marine heatwave) as well as smart multimodal observing systems will be of key interest.

Profil du candidat :
Applications from candidates with a Ph.D in applied math/machine learning/data science and a strong interest in ocean and climate science as well as with a PhD in ocean and climate science and a proven background in machine and deep learning are welcome.

Formation et compétences requises :
Candidates should have a strong interest and commitment to research. Creativity with an aim towards independent research is highly emphasized.
