External funding of atmospheric science programs in the United States: More tha the cost of a new professor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A small research project revealed that in the meteorologists' unending quest for new faculty positions at major universities, they are in the enviable position of being able to argue that they bring in more external funding, on average, than a university would have to spend on the position. In the project, programs were classified as to whether or not they had an undergraduate meteorology program. Latest data on annual external funding and the number of full-time-equivalent tenure-track faculty members were employed.
