The person to be hired, will work on the Belgian Research Action through Interdisciplinary networks project CHICXULUB ( Chicxulub 2016 IODP- ICDP deep drilling: From cratering to mass extinction). This project aims at a holistic understanding of the events that took place across the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K/Pg) boundary, 66 million years ago. The candidate will simulate the impact energy transfer to the Earth system via the atmosphere through a global atmospheric model.
