The Department of Geography in the College of Arts and Sciences at The
Ohio State University seeks an outstanding candidate for the Max Thomas
professorship in meteorology/climatology, to commence autumn semester
2017. The successful candidate will be a scholar with demonstrated
ability to sustain a strong, externally funded research program, advise
students and teach courses such as dynamics, synoptic meteorology,
weather forecasting and related themes in support of our atmospheric
sciences program (BS-MS- PhD). This position is partially funded by the
Max Thomas endowment to be known as the Max Thomas Professor in an
appropriate specialty.

This position requires a collaborative researcher capable of developing
a research program based on the innovative use of the techniques and
models in atmospheric science. There is a strong expectation that the
scholar will engage in quantitative
research and collaborate broadly across disciplines, departments and
colleges. Successful applicants must provide evidence of a competitive
record of publication and the ability to conduct and fund an active
research program involving one or more of the following: weather
forecasting, extreme weather and climate, climate system modeling, model
output downscaling, multiplatform satellite observation synthesis, and
data mining of climate and/or weather information. Other desirable
research and teaching specialties might include ecological modeling;
climate change adaptation or response; and remote sensing of
land surfaces at regional to global scales.


A Ph.D. in atmospheric sciences, meteorology, physical geography or a
closely related field is required. All applicants are expected to have
very strong and fundable research programs and to contribute to both
graduate and undergraduate supervision and instruction. Appointment is
contingent on the university’s verification of credentials and other
information required by law and/or university policies, including but
not limited to a criminal background check.
