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 ( 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 about the position are available by contacting Professor Colette Heald at
