Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a postdoc working on vegetation fire modelling, jointly
at LSCE and CEFE, France, under the ESA firecci project.  Please find
detailed information as below and in the attached file. Thank you for your
attention and sorry for the potential cross-posting.


The European Space Agency (ESA) CCI (Climate Change Initiative) project
aims to generate a number of essential climate variables (ECVs) using
satellite sensors. The CCI Fire Project will deliver new burned area time
series over the period 2000-2017 using data from the MERIS instrument and
other sensors. At the same time, specific burned area data related to
“small fires” which are difficult to capture using moderate resolution
images, will be developed for Africa based on data from Sentinel-2.

We seek to hire a post-doctoral fellow responsible for using the new ESA
CCI fire products in a global biosphere model, and calculating the impact
of fires on the carbon balance of ecosystems at regional and global scale.
The position will be hired jointly between LSCE (http://www.lsce.ipsl.fr)
and CEFE (http://www.cefe.cnrs.fr/fr/) two research institutes from Centre
National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) located near Paris and at
Montpellier, respectively for a total duration of three years.

Scientific activities will cover the benchmarking of the global dynamic
vegetation model ORCHIDEE using the new ESA burned area products. The
novelty of this work is the focus on the simulation of fire patch
distribution and post fire ecosystem resilience, combining burned area and
subsequent vegetation productivity indicators (NDVI, LAI). International
collaboration within the ESA CCI consortium and with fire scientists in
South Africa (S. Archibald), Northern Eurasia and the US (W.M. Hao) is

Best regards,
Chao​ Yue
