Date Tue, 19 Feb 2013 11:18:17 +0900

Dear Colleagues:

I would appreciate your kind attention to the available position in Data Assimilation Research Team, RIKEN Advanced Institute for Computational Science, conveniently located in the beautiful and historic city of Kobe. RIKEN is known as the flagship research institute in Japan. We are hiring an enthusiastic scientist at the postdoc to mid-career levels, 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.

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me at

I would truly appreciate it if you could forward this announcement to relevant scientists and researchers.

Takemasa Miyoshi

[Available positions] 
Research Scientist or Postdoctoral Researcher, one person 

The successful candidate will work on advanced research on data assimilation with high-resolution regional numerical weather prediction models using the K computer, aiming at improving forecasting capability of local high-impact weather events and their climatology. This research will contribute to making local hazard maps for heavy rainfall events and aid disaster prevention and mitigation for weather risks in Kobe and surrounding areas. Examples of specific research topics include:
1. Analysis and forecast experiments for past cases using high-resolution numerical weather prediction models
2. Assessing model errors with data assimilation and estimating model parameters to reduce the model errors
3. Developing data assimilation methods suitable to high-resolution numerical weather prediction
