Halley Professorship of Physics
UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD in association with Jesus College

Start date: 1 October 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The Halley Professorship of Physics was established in 1991 as an
upgrade of the long-standing statutory Readership in Atmospheric Physics
and was renamed the Halley Professorship in 2000. The post has a history
stretching back continuously to G M B Dobson (discoverer of the Earth's
ozone layer) in the 1920s. The person appointed will be an exceptional
physicist with an international reputation in one or more areas of
atmospheric, oceanic, climate and planetary physics and an outstanding
research and publication record. He/she will exercise leadership in
research and teaching, will be keen to interact with members of
Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics (AOPP) and other groups
within the department and the University, and will play a strategic role
in advancing further the research portfolio of AOPP in Oxford. AOPP at
Oxford has grown significantly in recent years and has consolidated its
reputation in a range of research areas, including atmospheric and
oceanic observations of the Earth and other solar system planets; remote
sensing instrumentation and data analysis; numerical modelling of the
Earth's climate system and of the climate of other planets; physical
oceanography, climate dynamics and geophysical fluid dynamics.

Please see the further particulars at

about the post and for full instructions before making an application.
Applications, including a covering letter and full CV, and naming three
