The School of Meteorology at the University of Oklahoma invites applications 
for a tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant Professor level to begin 
in the academic year 2015-2016. The School is seeking an excellent candidate 
with the ability to establish, lead and sustain a strong and vibrant research 
program in one or more of the following areas:  weather, climate, remote 
sensing and/or other potential specialties applicable to the department's 
atmospheric science program.  Applicants also should have a commitment to 
teaching excellence at the undergraduate and graduate levels plus a strong 
desire to participate in service to the School, University, and atmospheric 
science community. Applicants should have completed their PhD.

The context for this hire is that the weather, water, climate, and radar 
engineering are the University of Oklahoma’s highest priorities for strategic 
investment. The University has added more than $100 million in new facilities 
during the past several years including a new 35,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art 
Radar Innovations Laboratory.  In addition, the University was recently 
selected as home to the Department of the Interior’s South Central Regional 
Climate Science Center. A major program of interdisciplinary study has also 
been initiated in the social, human, behavioral, and economic aspects of 
weather and climate in collaboration with the University’s Center for Applied 
Social Research. The National Weather Center, one of the largest facilities of 
its kind in the world, houses the University’s academic and research programs 
in meteorology, state organizations, and the U.S. National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration’s Norman-based weather research and operational 
programs. The School of Meteorology is an academic unit of the College of 
Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences with 25 faculty and nearly 90 graduate
