Princeton University Postdoctoral Fellowship in Atmospheric Science & Policy

The Program in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy (STEP) at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International affairs will award one-year postdoctoral research positions (with the possibility of renewal for a second year) to eligible, talented researchers. These appointments are designed to promote basic policy-relevant research under the supervision of one or more STEP faculty members. Prof. Denise Mauzerall is soliciting 2013 fellowship applications in the following areas: 

CHEMISTRY – CLIMATE MODELING (in collaboration with colleagues at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, GFDL and Civil and Environmental Engineering, CEE, department).  Research projects include an examination of:

  1. Sources, transport, health and climate impacts of black carbon including impacts on surface energy/mass balance of glaciers and effects on water resources and examination of benefits of various mitigation strategies; 
  2. Benefits of various industry level mitigation strategies for methane and other pollutants for global ozone, aerosols and climate; 
  3. Benefits for air quality and climate of increased penetration of renewable energy;  
  4. Benefits of mitigation strategies for nitrous oxide and methane from agriculture. 

Strong computational skills and experience with emission inventories, global chemistry transport and climate models and/or with regional hydrological models is required.  Scientific research is oriented to inform policy decision-making.

The Research Fellows Program is open to all regardless of citizenship, but requires a completed doctorate and does not support work towards the completion of a degree. STEP fellows will be eligible for salary and full employee benefits in accordance with University guidelines. 

Please submit a CV, cover letter indicating you wish to work with me, describe your areas of expertise and interest, and include the names of three references.
