Marine Biophysics Unit
Associate Professor, Satoshi Mitarai
The Marine Biophysics Unit (MBU) of the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) seeks postdoctoral researchers in Coral Reef Dynamics. In collaboration with domestic and international partners, OIST MBU aims to develop a fundamental understanding of the drivers of reef-scale biophysical processes and the intrinsic links to offshore processes including potential large-scale and long-term forcings arising from global environmental change.
The successful candidate will combine observations with numerical modeling to produce a description of the physical functioning of Okinawan and other coral reefs, i.e., what flows are produced by offshore currents, meteorological forcing, surface waves, tides, density gradients produced by evaporation, cooling and heating, and by winds.
