Job Opportunities

The CGCS shares job listings with our sister organizations, the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change and the MIT Climate Modeling Initiative.


Postdoctoral Associate (two openings)


Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks two postdoctoral associates to join an international team of experimentalists and theoreticians in the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) and a large atmospheric chemistry group at MIT.  The work will focus on interpretation of AGAGE observations of greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases using models, measurements, and inverse methods. Additional information about AGAGE, CGCS, MIT Atmospheric Chemistry, and Professor Prinn is available at http://agage.mit.edu, http://cgcs.mit.edu, http://atmoschem.mit.edu, and http://mit.edu/rprinn.

This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal.

Job #18281


Requirements: A Ph.D. in some area of atmospheric physics and chemistry, and significant experience in three-dimensional atmospheric chemical transport modeling. Experience using these models together with observations to optimally estimate trace gas sources and sinks (i.e., inverse modeling) is desirable.


Application Instructions: In addition to applying online via the MIT Jobs website (job 18281), qualified scientists are also asked to send electronically a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation to: e-mail: rprinn@mit.edu.


Applications will be considered upon receipt until the position is filled.
 
Opening announced 11-21-2019.

 


 

Assistant Professorship in Climate-related Sciences

Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences

Job Description: The MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences includes a vibrant and inter-disciplinary group in climate science that we seek to expand. We are especially interested in physical oceanography, atmospheric chemistry, and atmospheric dynamics, but we encourage applications from outstanding candidates in all sub-disciplines of climate science. We seek candidates who use any approach or combination of approaches, including observation, theory, modeling, and experimentation. Candidates should have the potential for innovation and leadership in research and a commitment to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Job Requirements: Applicants must hold a Ph.D. in earth sciences or related field by the start of employment. Our intent is to hire at the assistant professor level, but more senior appointments may also be considered. Applications from women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged. A complete application must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, one- to two-page descriptions each of research and teaching plans, and three letters of recommendations.

Please explicitly commit to our department's code of conduct (https://eapsweb.mit.edu/about/code-conduct) in submitted cover letters.

MIT Molina Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Sciences - 2020


The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications from emerging nations for its Molina Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. The fellowship provides two years of support for exceptional early-career scientists who will pursue studies in environmental sciences. Molina Fellows will then return to their home countries better able to address complex environmental concerns. The Fellow will work under the supervision of an MIT faculty advisor in the area of environmental science of interest to the applicant. Fellows receive an annual stipend of $62,000, full coverage of premiums for affiliate health and basic dental and vision insurance, and a discretionary allowance of $5,000 per year.

Job Requirements: Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. degree in science or engineering by the start date. Women and minority candidates are particularly encouraged to apply.


Application Instructions: Applications are due by September 15, 2020 and must include a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests and three letters of recommendations provided separately. Applications are being accepted online at Academic Jobs Online: https://academicprogramsonline.org/ajo/programs/16410
