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.
