Description

POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) (two openings), to join an international team of experimentalists and theoreticians in the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE) and a large atmospheric chemistry group at MIT.  The work will focus on interpretation of AGAGE observations of greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases using models, measurements, and inverse methods. Additional information about AGAGE, CGCS, MIT Atmospheric Chemistry, and Professor Prinn is available at http://agage.mit.edu, http://cgcs.mit.edu, http://atmoschem.mit.edu, and http://mit.edu/rprinn.

This is a temporary, one-year appointment with the possibility of renewal.
