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 


Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks a postdoctoral associate to conduct atmospheric chemistry research on the air quality-related health impacts of transportation. The research will initially focus on the air quality implications of the use of ammonia as an alternative shipping fuel. The work will use the GEOS-Chem atmospheric chemistry model and involve quantifying uncertainties and estimating health and economic impacts.  There will be close collaboration with MIT faculty, research staff, and postdoctoral associates in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change and the MIT Climate and Sustainability Consortium, as well as interaction with industry decision-makers.  

This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of extension based upon funding.

Job #20651


Requirements:  a Ph.D. in atmospheric science, climate science, or related interdisciplinary fields.  PREFERRED: experience in atmospheric chemistry modeling and health impacts analysis and experience and interest in policy-relevant research. 


Application Instructions: In addition to applying online via the MIT Jobs website (job 20651), qualified scientists are also asked to send a brief statement of research interests and the names of three references to the attention of Professor Noelle Selin, MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society and Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at selin@mit.edu.


Applications will be considered upon receipt until the position is filled.
 

 


 

Postdoctoral Associate 


Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks a postdoctoral associate 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.
