1. Job Description: The MIT Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences has been undergoing a major expansion of its activities in climate science. Positions have recently been filled in the areas of atmospheric chemistry, paleoclimate and ocean biogeochemical cycles. We seek applicants for further appointments in climate-related fields, especially as they pertain to observations, models and theory in atmospheric dynamics and physical oceanography. Preference will be given to junior appointments at the assistant professor level, but a more senior appointment can be considered for an individual with exceptional qualifications.
Requirements: The successful candidates will have a strong record of accomplishment in their discipline, a strong commitment to teaching and student advising, and a keen interest in relating their work to complementary research in the Department and/or in the MIT/Woods Hole Joint Program in Oceanography. Joint appointments with other MIT departments can be negotiated as appropriate.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, one-page descriptions of research and teaching plans, and the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three professional referees. Please do not ask your referees to upload letters at the time of application; letters will be requested directly by MIT. Questions may be addressed to Prof. John Marshall, Search Committee Chair, at jmarsh [at] mit [dot] edu.
Applications are being accepted at Academic Jobs Online at
To receive consideration, a complete application must be received by February 28, 2014
2. The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at MIT continues to seek applications for multiple faculty positions in the broad fields of geology, geobiology, geochemistry, and geophysics, including but not limited to earth history, tectonics, earthquake source physics, surface processes, sedimentology, environmental science, deep earth properties and processes, and rock physics. Applicants that integrate across traditional boundaries are particularly encouraged to apply. The intention is to hire at the assistant professor level but more senior appointments can be considered. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, one-to-two page description of research and teaching plans, and the names, email addresses, and phone numbers of three professional referees.

In general applications for postdoctoral positions are made by contacting the appropriate member of faculty or principal investigator directly.
The Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) invites applications for the W. O. Crosby Postdoctoral Fellowship. We seek exceptional scientists with research interests in the broadly defined fields of geology, geochemistry, or geobiology. Crosby Fellows pursue independent research but are encouraged to collaborate with one or more researchers in the department. A faculty mentor will be assigned to host the fellow. Prospective fellows are encouraged to contact members of the department to discuss possible collaborations. The fellowship term is two years, contingent on good progress during the first year, and includes an annual stipend of $62,000 plus an allowance of up to $7,000 per year for research, relocation and health care expenses. Fellows are eligible to participate in MIT's health plan. The start date of the fellowship is flexible, but should fall between June 1, 2014 and January 31, 2015. Applicants must have obtained a Ph.D. by the start date, but not more than three years before the start date. Applications and three letters of reference should be emailed separately to wocrosby [at] mit [dot] edu no later than December 6, 2013. Letters must be sent by referees, not the applicant. The application should be submitted as a single PDF file containing a CV, a list of publications, a two-page plan of research to be conducted during the fellowship, and the names, telephone numbers and email addresses of the reference letter writers.
Applicants not selected for the Crosby Fellowship will automatically be considered for open postdoctoral positions in their area of expertise at MIT. We especially encourage applications from women and underrepresented minorities.
