Advanced Institute for Computational Science*

Dear Colleagues:

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

If you have any question, please feel free to contact me at
miyoshi at atmos.umd.edu.

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

[Research Field:]
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.
