Terrestrial Ecosystem Modelling post-doctoral position at Nagoya University, Japan We wish to fill 2~4 post-doc positions for risk and uncertainty analysis on terrestrial ecosystems under changing climate. This research is part of the continuation project of the "Innovative Program of Climate Change Projection for the 21st Century", which has been completed by the last March. http://www.jamstec.go.jp/kakushin21/eng/index.html Anticipated outputs include significantly improved understanding of controls on (1) vegetation dynamics in relation to climatic environment, and (2) atmosphere-vegetation exchanges of energy, water, and CO2. We are also expecting recommendations for future model development that could help to reduce uncertainties in projections of the terrestrial ecosystems. The successful candidate has the opportunity to develop key modeling and data interpretation skills, using state-of-the-art vegetation models or regional climate models. The project team is composed of (1) SEIB-DGVM developing group, (2) SPAC model developing group, (3) eastern-Siberia research group, and (4) regional climate modeling group. A successful candidate belongs to one of the above team, but will be encouraged to collaborate with other teams to integrate these study areas. (1) Specific research areas a) Revision development of the Spatially Explicit Individual-Based Dynamic Global Vegetation Model (SEIB-DGVM) for South-East Asia / Analysis for the interactions between atmosphere and vegetation / Analysis and prediction for terrestrial ecosystems under changing environment using the SEIB-DGVM. b) Revision development of the Soil-Plant-Atmosphere Continuum (SPAC) model especially for south-east Asia or eastern-Siberia / Analysis for interactions between atmosphere and vegetation with the SPAC model / Supplemental observation for energy, water, and CO2 fluxes with our observation group, if necessary. c) Integration of the SPAC model with a regional climate model / Analysis for feedbacks between terrestrial surface and regional climate with the resultant model. (2) Deadline for Applications: 31st July 2012 (3) The start date: September 2012 at the earliest. (4) Limit of Tenure Applies: March 2017 at maximum. Employment contract must be updated at the beginning of every April during the project period. (5) Work Location Higashiyama Campus, Nagoya University http://www.nagoya-u.ac.jp/en/global-info/access-map/higashiyama/ (6) Salary: Yen 300~500 (million/year). This amount of fee includes social security costs. We cannot pay for the moving and mobility allowances. Before exchanging employment agreement, we will offer specific amount of salary, which reflects career and skill of candidates. (7) Qualification Requirements Applicants must either be already in possession of a doctoral degree, or have prospect to possess a doctoral degree before arriving at this position. Applicants must be communicated by English. Skills for computer programming would be welcomed, although this is not an absolute requirement. (8) Application method: Applications should include a CV with publication list, cover letter including the names and contact addresses of two referees, a half-page statement of research interest. These documents should be sent by email to email@example.com by no later than the above dead line. (9) Etc. Before submitting an application, interested candidates may wish to discuss the position further by contacting associate professor Tomo'omi KUMAGAI at firstname.lastname@example.org. Nagoya city locates in central part of main-island of Japan, and environment radioactivity is nearly at the same level of natural background. Japanese government insists that the radio activities within water and food are under strict control.
