Offer Description

Background of the recruitment and description of the project Background of the recruitment and description of the project The Center for Integrated Data Science (CIDAS) at the Institute for Space and Earth Environmental Research (ISEE), Nagoya University, Japan, was established for the purpose of conducting basic and applied research to realize advance in topics in the space solar-terrestrial system based on integrated analysis from broad data sources and advanced computer simulations. In particular, the Center aims to enable novel research only achievable through the integration of different types of data by developing an analysis environment that combines satellite and ground-based observational data with data from numerical simulations. Currently, both the ERG Science Center and Hinode Science Center operate within CIDAS. In order to further solidify these efforts, a new "Heliospheric Science Center (HSC)" will be established in April 2022 to promote heliospheric system science. The HSC will be jointly operated with the JAXA Institute of Space and Astronautical Science (ISAS) and the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ). At the center, the research environment using satellite data, ground-based observation data, and numerical simulations is included. Missions that will be supported at the HSC will include Arase, Mio (BepiColombo Mercury Orbiter), Hinode, and Solar-C (EUVST) which is a future solar physics mission by JAXA/ISAS due for launch in mid-2020s. The HSC will provide data, analysis software, and computer resources to the community in support of multi-source multi-discipline scientific investigations. https: // cidas.isee.nagoya-u.ac.jp/index.shtml.en

Work content and job description We seek candidates who will promote the use of data obtained from the Mio and Arase missions, develop relevant databases and integrated analysis tools, and support and improve in-house heliospheric simulations. The successful candidate will also be responsible for designing observation plans in collaboration with other missions. We also seek expertise in data science, new computational methods for data- driven simulations, advanced analysis methods including machine learning. The positions are expected to engage in their own research in heliospheric system science through incorporating new methods and knowledge of data science. The successful candidates are expected to promote research that integrates across missions, disseminate the new research environment to the community through, e.g., workshops and outreach, and collaborate with researchers across the country to lead and promote novel investigations in heliospheric system science in Japan. Through the activities at CIDAS, we expect the new CIDAS hires will contribute to future space missions in the field of heliospheric system science.
