Post Masters RA - Integrated Modeling & Energy (Emissions Data System)
The Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) in College Park, MD
seeks a Post Masters Associate to take a leading role in the development
of a new system for estimating and analyzing trends in historical
pollutant emissions. The candidate may also contribute to research in
energy system modeling, energy technology analysis, international and
national climate and energy policy analysis, and related areas. This is
a full-time appointment (for up to two years) with benefits.
The successful candidate must have an M.S. in engineering, economics,
operations research, management science, computer science or related
field. GPA of 3.5 preferred.
A solid programing background is required, preferably with some formal
training. Demonstrated data analysis experience required. Experience
with greenhouse gas or pollutant emissions data (or similarly
heterogeneous data sets) is a strong plus. Experience in data processing
languages/environments such as R also a plus. Excellent written and oral
communication skills and the ability to work in a team environment are
necessary. Please attach a cover letter to resume.
JGCRI houses an interdisciplinary team dedicated to understanding the
problems of global climate change and their potential solutions. JGCRI’s
research program includes the continuing development and application of
an integrated assessment computer-modeling framework that combines
models of the human and Earth systems, including energy and the economy,
land-use, agriculture, water, climate, air-pollution, and ecosystems.
JGCRI researchers work with scientists and decision-makers in US Federal
agencies, state governments, industry, foundations, and universities and
publish in leading scientific journals. JGCRI researchers are leaders in
the international and national climate and global change research
communities through prominent roles in science-based integrated
assessments of energy and agricultural systems and water resources.
Located in College Park, Maryland, JGCRI is a partnership between the
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory of the US Department of Energy and
the University of Maryland at College Park. The work environment at
JGCRI is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, focused on
solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges associated with
energy, water and environment.
