Dear CEDAR Colleagues,

This is an announcement of Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute
for Space-Earth Environmental Research (ISEE), Nagoya University,

See below

  Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute for Space-Earth Environmental
  Research (ISEE), Nagoya University

Project for Solar-Terrestrial Environment Prediction (PSTEP;
http://www.pstep.jp/) is a nation-wide research collaboration supported
by a Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas from
MEXT/Japan. PSTEP aims to contribute to building a next-generation space
weather forecast system to prepare for severe space weather disasters by
answering some of the fundamental questions concerning the solar-
terrestrial environmental system. Successful candidates will work under
a project “Solar-Terrestrial Environment Prediction as Science and
Social Infrastructure” of PSTEP. The successful candidates are required
(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.
