Job Description

The Joint Global Change Research Institute (JGCRI) in College Park, MD seeks a Post Masters Associate to take a leading role in the development of a new system for estimating and analyzing trends in historical pollutant emissions. The candidate may also contribute to research in energy system modeling, energy technology analysis, international and national climate and energy policy analysis, and related areas. This is a full-time appointment (for up to two years) with benefits.


The successful candidate must have an M.S. in engineering, economics, operations research, management science, computer science or related field. GPA of 3.5 preferred.

A solid programing background is required, preferably with some formal training. Demonstrated data analysis experience required. Experience with greenhouse gas or pollutant emissions data (or similarly heterogeneous data sets) is a strong plus. Experience in data processing languages/environments such as R also a plus. Excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to work in a team environment are necessary. Please attach a cover letter to resume.



JGCRI houses an interdisciplinary team dedicated to understanding the problems of global climate change and their potential solutions. JGCRI’s research program includes the continuing development and application of an integrated assessment computer-modeling framework that combines models of the human and Earth systems, including energy and the economy, land-use, agriculture, water, climate, air-pollution, and ecosystems.

JGCRI researchers work with scientists and decision-makers in US Federal agencies, state governments, industry, foundations, and universities and publish in leading scientific journals. JGCRI researchers are leaders in the international and national climate and global change research communities through prominent roles in science-based integrated assessments of energy and agricultural systems and water resources. Located in College Park, Maryland, JGCRI is a partnership between the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory of the US Department of Energy and the University of Maryland at College Park. The work environment at JGCRI is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, focused on solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges associated with energy, water and environment.
