Description: 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.
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 Careers website, qualified scientists are also asked to send electronically a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation to: e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. This position is open until filled.
