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.
Currently open positions include:
- POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW in Environmental Science
- Graduate Research Fellow
The BP Energy and Climate Fellowship provides tuition and stipend for an MIT graduate student to support thesis research on energy and climate change. Research topics that involve the interaction of human and earth systems are preferred. Topics can range from how advanced energy systems may limit climate change to earth system responses to greenhouse gas and aerosol forcing or the impacts of climate change on human systems, especially energy systems. The Fellowship provides the opportunity to work with research scientists and faculty in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. Preference will be given to topics that make use of or advance the Integrated Global Systems Model (IGSM) developed in the Program or components of the framework. More detail on the Program and the IGSM is available at http://globalchange.mit.edu/. Applicants at an early stage in formulating their research are encouraged. The Fellowship is for one year with the potential for renewal or follow-up funding for promising research.
Applicants should submit a 1 to 2 page proposal along with a CV to Sergey Paltsev (email@example.com) by May 31, 2013.
Selection for Academic year 2013/14 will occur in summer 2013.
- Professor of Climate
The MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences announces a major expansion of its activities in climate science and seeks applicants for up to three faculty positions in Climate-related fields. Preference will be given to junior appointments at the assistant professor level, but a senior appointment can be considered for an individual with exceptional qualifications. Areas of specific interest include observations, models and theory of the atmosphere, ocean and cryosphere, and climates, biogeochemical cycles and ecology.
The successful candidates will have to have a strong record of accomplishment in their discipline, a strong commitment to teaching and student advising, a keen interest in relating their work to complementary research in the Department and in the MIT/Woods Hold Joint Program in Oceanography. Joint appointments with other MIT departments are also potentially negotiable where appropriate.
More information about this position can be obtained by writing Professor Raffaele Ferrari at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A completed application will include a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching objectives, and the names of 5 potential references. Applications are being accepted at Academic Jobs Online [Position ID #1122: MIT-EAPS-CLIMATE2011]. Please do not ask your referees to upload letters at the time of application; letters will be requested directly by MIT. To receive consideration, a completed application must be received.

The Molina Fellowship in Environmental Science was established to bring postdoctoral fellows and young scientists from emerging nations to MIT to pursue studies in environmental sciences. Molina Fellows will then return to their home countries better able to address complex environmental concerns. Individuals holding a Ph.D. degree in science or engineering and interested in pursuing work in environmental science are eligible for the one-year Fellowship with an annual stipend of $50,000 and discretionary funds of $3000.
Qualified scientists are encouraged to apply by sending a Curriculum Vitae (with a list of degrees, positions, publications, names and addresses of three professional references, and a brief statement of research interest) to the attention of:
Prof. Ronald G. Prinn
Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
77 Massachusetts Avenue, Room 54-1312
Cambridge MA 02139-4307
Fax: (+1) 617 253 0354
In addition, applicants should arrange for the three letters of recommendation to be sent directly by referees to the same address. All materials must be received by July 15, 2013.
