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 FELLOWS in Atmospheric Chemistry
We have new openings for Post-doctoral Fellows in the MIT Center for Global Change Science. The Fellows will be required to have a doctoral degree in some area of the atmospheric sciences with significant experience in three-dimensional atmospheric chemical transport modeling. Experience with using these models together with observations to optimally estimate trace gas sources and sinks (i.e., inverse modeling) is desirable. The Fellows will join the international team of experimentalists and theoreticians in the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE), and will focus on interpretation of AGAGE observations of greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases using such inverse methods. They will also join the large atmospheric chemistry group at MIT. Salary depends on experience.
Qualified scientists are encouraged to apply by e-mailing their Curriculum Vitae (with a list of degrees, positions, publications, names and addresses of three professional references, and a brief statement of research interests) 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 September 30, 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 email@example.com.
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.
