Job Description
We are soliciting applications for two Postdoctoral Researchers to work on a CREST research project titled “Integration of measurement technologies and informatics based on Bayesian inference and sparse modeling (FY2020-FY2022, Co-Principal Investigator: Tatsu Kuwatani)” under a research area "Development and application of intelligent measurement-analysis methods through coalition between measurement technologies and informatics", supported by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

The purpose of this contract research is to develop a mathematical-scientific methodology that extracts the essential physical and chemical processes behind observation and measurement datasets and solve various actual problems in various fields of the material sciences. Thus, we are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who will engage in the following proposed tasks related to the development and application of such data-driven analytical methods and carry out research independently. Challenging research is encouraged through active collaboration with researchers from different fields. The research target and approach are flexibly determined by taking into account the applicants' expert area and experience.
1) Development and application of image data analysis for the earth and material sciences based on Bayesian inference
2) Development and application of geochemical data analysis based on sparse modeling
3) Development of new data analysis for the earth and material sciences based on deep learning
4) Writing peer-reviewed papers and research reports
