Scientist or Technical Scientist at EGCR, RCGC, JAMSTEC
Environmental Geochemical Cycle Research Group, Research and Development Center for Global Change (RCGC),JAMSTEC, is recruiting a total of 1 position as a tenure-track Scientist or Technical Scientist.We are soliciting applications for a full-time TENURE-TRACK position as a Scientist or Technical Scientist. The successful applicant will be engaged in the medium-term plan.
Environmental Geochemical Cycle Research Group, Research and Development Center for Global Change (RCGC) conducts research on environmental geochemical cycles over land, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans involving the emission, transport, transformation, and removal of chemical substances. We use state-of-the-art technologies to optimize field and satellite observations and perform numerical model simulations, aiming to gain a comprehensive understanding of the cycles and thereby contribute to solving global environmental issues. A recent focus is on the increase in human-induced gases and particles in the environment and their impact on the Earth system.
The successful applicant will be expected to advance our understanding of the behavior of particulate pollution in the environment originating from human activity on land and dispersing to the atmosphere and oceans. Specifically, the applicant will 1) undertake research and development on single-particle detection technologies based on optical and other methodologies and their optimization, 2) analyze the environmental behavior of those particles based on in-situ and satellite observations, in view of applications for next-generation remote sensing, 3) perform quantitative numerical model simulations of the particle behavior, or 4) conduct research related to sustainable development goals (SDGs) and analyze the impact of particle pollution on ecosystems or climate change.
