Full time

The MIT Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks a postdoctoral associate to conduct atmospheric chemistry research on the air quality-related health impacts of transportation. 

The research will initially focus on the air quality implications of the use of ammonia as an alternative shipping fuel. The work will use the GEOS-Chem atmospheric chemistry model and involve quantifying uncertainties and estimating health and economic impacts.  There will be close collaboration with MIT faculty, research staff, and postdoctoral associates in the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change and the MIT Climate and Sustainability Consortium, as well as interaction with industry decision-makers. 


Requirements: a PhD, in atmospheric science, climate science, or related interdisciplinary fields. Experience in atmospheric chemistry modeling and health impacts analysis is particularly desired, as is experience and interest in policy-relevant research.

This is a one-year appointment with the possibility of extension based upon funding.

In addition to applying online to job number 20651 via the MIT website at, qualified scientists are also asked to send a brief statement of research interests and the names of three references to the attention of Professor Noelle Selin, MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society and Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at
