Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, seeks a Research Scientist 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 4-year appointment with the possibility of renewal.

Requirements: A Ph.D. in some area of atmospheric physics and chemistry, and significant post-doctoral 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). Capability to conceive and lead new research and to mentor graduate students and post-doctoral associates. A complete application needs to include a cover letter, CV, a brief statement of research interests (one to two pages), and three letters of recommendation.
