Work content and job description The National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) has been conducting long-term observations of greenhouse gases using the tower observation network in Siberia. From FY2022, the observation has been conducted under the fund of "Long-term variations in greenhouse gases associated with changes in the polar environment using a tower observation network in Siberia" by the Global Environmental Research Coordination System from the Ministry of the Environment of Japan. This project is currently underway to organize and publish the long-term observation of carbon dioxide and methane data. This call is open to applicants who research in using observation data to study the carbon cycle or the mechanism of concentration fluctuations in the polar regions. Although any analytical method is acceptable, comprehensive analysis using results from chemical transport models and/or satellite observations is recommended. We are looking for successful candidates who are willing to write papers based on their research results.

In case of changes in the nature of work occurring, the scope will be on research and general clerical work associated with research studies conducted at NIES.
