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.


 

Research Scientist 

The Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks a research scientist 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 4-year appointment with the possibility of renewal.

Requirements: A Ph.D. in some area of atmospheric physics and chemistry, and significant post-doctoral 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). Capability to conceive and lead new research and to mentor graduate students and post-doctoral associates.

Application Instructions: Applications are being accepted online at Academic Jobs Online  https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/21158. A complete application needs to include a cover letter, CV, a brief statement of research interests (one to two pages), and three letters of recommendation.

Applications received will be considered until the position is filled.

Postdoctoral Associate, Climate-System Modeling Within Integrated Human-Earth System Model Framework

Description

POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, CLIMATE-SYSTEM MODELING WITHIN INTEGRATED HUMAN-EARTH SYSTEM MODEL FRAMEWORK, Center for Global Change Science, to work in the area of climate and Earth-system modeling within the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.  Will join a multidisciplinary team of researchers studying environmental impacts as well as physical and transition risks of global-to-regional mitigation and adaptation policies. The primary responsibility will include the operation, development, and analyses with the MIT Earth System Model (MESM) as well as its linkages and coupling to models of socio-economic systems, managed resources (i.e., water-energy-land), and air pollution within the MIT’s Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM) framework.
  

Requirements
REQUIRED: a Ph. D. in climate/Earth-system science or a closely related field; proficiency with scientific programming languages (e.g., Fortran, C/C++, and/or MATLAB) and GIS-based and/or geospatial graphical analysis software; experience with code development, management, and numerical experimentation within Linux-based high-performance computing architectures; knowledge of and experience working with large, environmental data sets; and the ability to work within an interdisciplinary group to meet objectives of the broader program. PREFERRED: experience and proficiency with community-based Earth-system models such as Community Earth System Model (CESM) and/or the Energy, Exascale, Earth System Model (E3SM) . Job #21684 To safeguard our health and well-being, MIT requires COVID-19 vaccination and booster for all MIT employees who work in the United States. New employees must be up to date with their vaccinations before their date of hire; if not eligible for the booster at date of hire, they must receive the booster within two weeks after becoming eligible. Individuals may request exemption from the vaccine requirement for medical or religious reasons. More information may be found at: https://now.mit.edu.

 

Application Instructions
In addition to applying online via the MIT website, qualified scientists are asked to send a brief statement of research interests (no more than one page) with a CV and the names and contact information for three professional references to the attention of Dr. Adam Schlosser, Deputy Director of the MIT Joint Program via email to postdoc2022_mesm@mit.edu. This is a one-year (hybrid schedule) appointment with the possibility of extension depending on funding and performance.
