Columbia University: 2-year Postdoctoral Research Scientist appointment to model planetary atmospheric chemistry and aerosol processes in a general circulation model.

The successful candidate will join a team from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS), GSFC, Columbia University, and other institutions as part of the Nexus for Exoplanet System Science ( Team research addresses the habitability of past Solar System and exoplanet climates and informs exoplanet mission design. The candidate will be expected to perform original research, present results at scientific meetings, and publish first-author peer-reviewed papers. The candidate will be resident at NASA GISS in New York City.

Requirements:  PhD. in atmospheric science, chemistry, planetary science, astrobiology, or a similar field. Expertise in atmospheric chemistry and willingness to become involved in chemistry-aerosol parameterization development are required, but the broad scope of the project allows for many possible research directions and collaborations in studying atmospheric composition impacts on a variety of climates using the model. Strong mathematics and programming skills are also required. For further information contact Anthony DelGenio ([email protected]).
