[Met-jobs] Data assimilation research positions available in Japan at RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science
I would appreciate your kind attention to the new opportunities in Japan. The Data Assimilation Research Team is a new laboratory starting on 1 October 2012 at the RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science, conveniently located in the beautiful and historic city of Kobe. RIKEN is known as the flagship research institution in Japan. We are hiring enthusiastic scientists, who will work on cutting-edge data assimilation research using the Japanese 10-Peta-Flops "K computer".
Concerns about living in Japan? RIKEN has support for non-Japanese scientists.
I would truly appreciate it if you could forward this announcement to relevant scientists and researchers.

The Advanced Institute for Computational Science (AICS) is operating the world's leading K computer, and also has a strong Research Division. AICS takes the lead in advancing the computational science and aims to be an international center of excellence for computational science in collaboration with a wide range of research organizations. AICS integrates the computer science and computational science to conduct most advanced research and development of a wide range of applied scientific computation, as well as of high performance computing technologies.
The Data Assimilation Research Team ("DA team") performs cutting-edge research and development on advanced data assimilation methods and their wide applications, aiming at integrating computer simulations and observational data in the wisest way. Particularly, the DA team will tackle challenging problems of developing efficient and accurate data assimilation systems for high-dimensional simulations with large amount of data. The specific areas include 1) research on parallel-efficient algorithms for data assimilation with the super-parallel K computer, 2) research on data assimilation methods and applications by taking advantage of the world-leading K computer, and 3) development of most advanced data assimilation software optimized for the K computer.
