Hi, I'm John Allen, an Assistant Professor of Meteorology in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Central Michigan University. My research spans a variety of interdisciplinary topics, but primarily focuses on severe convective storms around the globe, their characteristics, climatology and response to factors such as climate variability and change.
Our group pursues problems that aren't your typical mesoscale meteorology, and brings together insights from climate dynamics through synoptic meteorology and explores their respective influences on the storm scale. We leverage modeling, statistical and big data analysis techniques to better understand problems like:
We have an exciting new opportunity for a Ph.D. student interested in severe thunderstorm and hail research interested in joining the research group at Central Michigan University anticipated starting Fall 2019. Preferred qualifications of the candidate would be an M.S. in meteorology or atmospheric sciences for this opportunity. This position would suit a student with an interest in convective storms and applications to forecasting, and could be tailored somewhat to suit research interests. Four years of Research Assistant support are available for this position. Applications will be evaluated as received, and will be evaluated until filled. Feel free to email Dr. Allen with questions and further details.
Dr. John T. Allen
