AGAGE Jobs: New Openings for Research Scientist, Postdoc Associate (Dec 2017)

December 22, 2017
Careers @ MIT

Job Description: The MIT Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks a Research Scientist and 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 under the supervision of Professor Prinn.

Job Requirements: REQUIRED: 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. Appointment at the Research Scientist level will require more experience than at the Postdoctoral Associate level. 

In addition to applying online via the MIT Careers website (; Research Scientist Job Number 15524; Postdoctoral Associate Job Number 15525), qualified scientists are also asked to send a CV, brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation to or to:
