POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITION AT MIT to investigate the linkages
between climate and air quality extremes. 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 (http://web.mit.edu/heald/www). Major
goals and responsibility of the position include testing the
fidelity of and investigating the relationships between air quality
and climate extremes in climate models (CESM and WRF), developing
applications of extreme value statistics to this problem,
communicating and collaborating with a team focused on observational
analysis of extreme events, 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 or climate, highly effective oral and written communication skills and the ability to work as part of a research team. Experience with statistical analysis also desired.
The position is open immediately with an anticipated start date prior to February 1, 2013. Initial appointment is for one year, with possible renewal for second year depending upon performance. Additional details about the position are available by contacting Professor Colette Heald at email@example.com.
