Postdoctoral Position in Earth and Planetary Science Department, Kyushu University, Japan

We invite applications for one postdoctoral position to work on a Japan-Germany joint project about “Wave coupling processes of the middle and upper atmosphere: Interannual and long-term variability”. This research project is jointly funded by Japan JSPS and German DFG science foundations in the framework of JSPS-DFG cooperation program. Successful candidate will have the opportunity to closely work with partner institutes in both countries on this project.

1.     Field of research: Middle Atmosphere Physics, Ionosphere Physics

2.       Job responsibilities:

-       To examine the interannual, long-term variability in tides and gravity waves using a combination of LEO satellites and long-term ground optical and radar observations (MU radar, FPI, airglow measurements in Japan and Southeast Asia) and multi-year whole atmosphere model simulations.

-        To investigate the physical mechanisms pertaining to wave coupling at interannual and long-term scales by carrying out model experiments with the whole atmosphere-ionosphere coupled model (GAIA), and compare with middle atmosphere models.

3.      Requirements

-       Doctor degree in Atmosphere Physics or Space Physics

-       Expertise in study of MLT region dynamics and its coupling to the upper atmosphere, atmospheric tides and gravity waves

-       Experiences and skills in analyzing satellite and ground-based optical and radar observations of the thermosphere and ionosphere

4.     Contract period: 

May, 1, 2019 – Mar. 31 2020, based on a performance evaluation, the contract is renewable yearly until Feb 28, 2022.

5.      Salary:

Will be determined according to Kyushu University’s regulations.

6.     Application materials required:

a.     CV (free format but with photo and birthday)

b.     A list of publications

c.     3 major publications in PDF format

d.     Research plan (1-2 pages)

e.     2 Recommendation letters

7.     Application deadline: Feb. 15, 2019

8.     Where to send:

 Please email your application to Huixin Liu: liu.huixin.295 at m.kyushu-u.ac.jp. Questions and enquires can also be addressed. Please keep the file below 10 MB.
