√ Intitulé du poste: 
Modelling of landscape functioning
√ Contexte scientifique: 

We have one open postdoctoral position (18 months) within the ANR ALMIRA project (2014-2018): “Adapting Landscape Mosaics of medIteranean Rainfed Agrosystems for a sustainable management of crop production, water and soil resources”. Applications will be conducted on the La Peyne basin southern France. 

√ Description du poste: 
The selected candidate will be in charge of the following points:
• To analyse the hydrological behaviour (runoff, erosion, vegetation functioning) of the La Peyne basin (80 km²; hydrological database 2007-2012 and on-going 2016-2017 hydrological spatial measurements). 
• To carry out the modelling of landscape functioning using the SWAT model (daily time step) on the La Peyne basin in order to simulate the impact of future scenarios of landscape mosaics and climate change (scenarios obtained from the other Work Packages of ALMIRA) on runoff, erosion and vegetation functioning considering multi-criteria approaches. The objective is to synthesize the related eco-systemic services for each landscape mosaics through indicators and finally derive recommendations on the best landscape mosaic.
• Depending on the progress of the work, to carry out an application of the available version of the Integrated Hydrological Processes Model under development at LISAH, that couples runoff, erosion and vegetation functioning at finer time steps (15 minutes) under the OpenFLUID platform. Applications will be conducted on the La Peyne basin or benchmarks, for few reference scenarios, and the results compared to those obtained previously with SWAT.
• To publish the results in 2 scientific articles.
√ Date souhaitée: 
Dimanche, 1 Janvier, 2017
√ Durée: 
18 month
√ Affectation géographique: 
Montpellier, UMR LISAH
√ Compétences: 

This position requires a PhD by the start date of employment in hydrology, environmental engineering or related field. Preferred research skills and interests include demonstrated knowledge of modelling, geospatial analysis and time series analysis. Good computer programming skills (e.g. GIS, R and/or Matlab) are required. A record of publications and knowledge of catchment science is desired.
