Hi all,

The University of Oklahoma’s School of Meteorology is seeking a new director:

The new Director will be appointed in the School as a tenured faculty member with the rank of professor. Appointment as Director and McCasland Chair will be for an initial four-year term, with the possibility of renewal. The McCasland Chair provides salary support, as well as discretionary funds to support the Director’s work for the good of the School.

The School seeks a Director who will continue to advance its leadership position in meteorology, anticipate and react to the ongoing rapid changes in the field, work proactively with all stakeholders to implement the vision for the School, and interact effectively with the Dean of the College to augment the School's funding base from academic, government, and private sector sources.

The School of Meteorology of the University of Oklahoma is internationally recognized for innovative, state-of-the-art education and research in the atmospheric sciences. It is one of the leading programs nationwide in developing forward-looking curricula to prepare undergraduate and graduate students for careers in the 21st Century. The School is now seeking an outstanding individual to serve as its Director and the Mark and Kandi McCasland Chair in Meteorology.

The School is an academic program in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences and is located in the National Weather Center on the University’s 271-acre Research Campus. The Campus brings together university programs with State and Federal research and operational facilities, including several NOAA organizations and several private-sector weather companies. This provides for a dynamic meteorological community, where learning extends beyond the classroom and research is linked directly with practical applications.

Specific qualifications for the Director include: career experience in academia, industry, or government sufficient to award tenure at the rank of professor; a strong commitment to excellence in education as demonstrated by instruction in institutions of higher education, in industry, or in government training/outreach programs; a distinguished record of scholarly achievement; demonstrated leadership and administrative skills in an academic, research, or similar setting; an appreciation of the diverse research disciplines in the School; and an ability to communicate effectively with faculty, staff, students, the Dean and other University administrators, alumni, and federal and industry representatives in a variety of venues. The area of research expertise is open.

Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2017
