Managing Director, Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment


The Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE) is a
National Science Foundation Center for Chemical Innovation.  The mission of
CAICE is to transform our ability to accurately predict the impact of
aerosols on climate and the environment by bringing real-world chemical
complexity into the laboratory.  To accomplish this task, CAICE has
assembled a team of scientists in atmospheric, physical, and analytical
chemistry, chemical biology, as well as chemical, biological, and physical
oceanography from eight institutions across the United States, along works
with a number of domestic and international academic collaborators and
industrial partners. In addition to conducting innovative chemical
research, we are dedicated to improving science education and outreach for
better public understanding of both chemistry and climate.

Position Overview

The Managing Director (MD) is a critical member at the hub of many Center
activities and supports both its research and educational missions. The
incumbent reports to, and works in close partnership with, the
Director/Principal Investigator (Prof. Kimberly Prather) and the Management
Team to administer this large, technically complex, and continuously
evolving research center from its headquarters at the University of
California, San Diego.  The MD serves as manager and central administrator
for the Center, acts as liaison between CAICE and NSF, and facilitates
communication between members of the Center.  The ability to understand,
