Postdoctoral or more senior researcher - impact of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) on the marine sulfate budget and implications for Earth's radiative budget

The Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in association with NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), seeks a postdoctoral or more senior researcher to investigate the impact of dimethyl sulfide (DMS) on the marine sulfate budget and implications for Earth's radiative budget. Topics of emphasis include the application of GFDL's Earth System Model to assess: a) the drivers of historical and future changes in DMS emissions, b) the impact of climate change and anthropogenic emissions on the marine sulfate budget, and c) radiative feedbacks associated with DMS.

The successful applicant will work with Drs. Fabien Paulot (, Vaishali Naik (, and John Dunne ( in the Biogeochemistry, Atmospheric Chemistry, and Ecosystems Division at GFDL. Candidates must have received a Ph.D. in the earth sciences, atmospheric chemistry, or related physical science disciplines. Candidates with experience in model development and analysis of environmental datasets are particularly encouraged to apply. This is a one-year position, with the possibility of renewal for a second year based on satisfactory performance and continued funding.

Applicants are asked to submit a CV, publication list, a one-to-two page statement of research interests, and contact information for 3 references. Review of applications will begin as soon as they are received and continue until the position is filled. Princeton is interested in candidates who, through their research, will contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Applicants should apply online at
