Community Multiscale Air Quality Modeling System (CMAQ)

Opportunities for CMAQ Collaborators

Contribute to the CMAQ System

As a public domain model, CMAQ is the product of contributions from many developers, whose numbers are only expected to increase with the number of users worldwide.  The EPA uses the version control system git to manage the cross-community access to this software.

Work with Us

Opportunities for students and postdoctoral fellows to work with our team are available through these mechanisms:

ORISE and NAS positions are available throughout the year while NERL postdoc positions are advertised once a year.

Staff positions, when available, will be advertised through USAJOBSEXIT


The CMAQ research team also welcomes the opportunity to host visiting scientists interested in the development, application, and evaluation of CMAQ and related models.  Visitors travel to EPA/RTP for a day or two to meet with individuals on the CMAQ team.  A seminar can also be scheduled and is encouraged if you’re interested in sharing a presentation on your research. Requests for visits should be made at least a week in advance.
