PhD position in Geodesy and Global Earth Deformation at ENS / Univ. Luxembourg

The department of Geosciences at the Ecole normale superieure, France, and the University of Luxembourg are seeking a highly
motivated student to work on a project cofunded by CNES (French Space Agency) and Luxembourg University aimed at improving our
understanding of the response of the Earth to seasonal loads (among which continental water and atmospheric pressure). The student will
compare GNSS observations to predictions from global Earth models of deformation under loads derived from GRACE data. S/he will
develop new approaches to improve the Earth model so as to best match vertical and horizontal geodetic observations. S/he will
investigate the physics that control eventual deviations from a purely elastic Earth. Successful candidates must have a strong
background in geophysics and/or physics, and a solid background in computing. They must meet doctoral admissions requirements of both
universities. Applicants should send a vitae, a motivation statement, and a list of 3 references to Eric Calais (eric.calais at ens.fr <mailto:eric.calais at ens.fr>),
Luce Fleitout (fleitout at geologie.ens.fr <mailto:fleitout at geologie.ens.fr>), and Tonie van Dam (tonie.vandam at uni.lu <mailto:tonie.vandam at uni.lu>).
