ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, to work with Professor
Colette Heald to investigate secondary aerosol formation and their
impact on climate. This project will investigate the formation of
secondary marine aerosol, use observations to support the development of
new model schemes, and investigate the impact of these aerosol on
estimated aerosol radiative forcing. The candidate will join a diverse
research group at MIT which studies the composition and chemistry of the
global atmosphere and the interactions of these with air quality and
climate (healdgroup.mit.edu). Major goals and responsibilities of the
position include developing, implementing, testing, and applying new
schemes for marine aerosol formation in the Community Earth System Model
(CESM) and presenting results at scientific conferences and preparing
papers for scholarly journals.
REQUIREMENTS: a PhD in atmospheric science, engineering, physics,
chemistry, or related field, experience with global or regional modeling
of atmospheric chemistry, highly effective oral and written
communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a research team.
The position has an anticipated start date of September 1, 2019, but
timing is negotiable. Initial appointment is for one year, with possible
renewal for second year depending upon performance. Additional details
