Position: Postdoctoral Fellow - Space-Earth Environmental Research
Institution: Nagoya University
Department: Institute for Space-Earth Environmental Research
Location: Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan
Duties: Successful candidates will work under a project “Solar-Terrestrial Environment Prediction as Science and Social Infrastructure” (1) to mainly analyze the Arase data on radiation belts and inner magnetosphere to compare them with results from the radiation belt simulations in order to contribute understanding and predictions process on variations of the outer belt electrons, or (2) to mainly analyze ground-based GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and optical measurement data to compare them with outputs from a whole atmosphere-ionosphere coupled model, GAIA (Ground-to-topside model of Atmosphere and Ionosphere for Aeronomy) in order to contribute to prediction of the ionospheric variations
Requirements: Holds a doctoral degree or is expected to earn a doctoral degree, and does not have other primary occupation or is not a graduate student or a researcher at the time of start of the employment
