Tenure-track Faculty Position in Coastal and Marine Science
The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) School of Earth, Environmental and Marine Sciences is expanding and is seeking candidates to develop a research program in the broad area of Coastal and Marine Science. Relevant research areas could include marine and coastal ecological processes (transport of sediments, nutrients, nutrients, and organisms), microbiology, harmful algal blooms, biogeochemistry, larval processes, and ocean sensing and monitoring. Candidates whose research involves more than one of these areas are of particular interest, as are individuals with expertise in semi-arid or sub-tropical climates. This faculty position will teach advanced undergraduate and graduate courses, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students in the School. The minimum requirement is a Ph. D. from an accredited university in a coastal related science discipline. Applicants should have established, vigorous research programs in a relevant field and experience in securing nationally competitive external research funding. Postdoctoral research experience is preferred. Highly qualified applicants with strong research portfolios can qualify for significant supplemental startup equipment funds through the UTRGV Science and Technology Acquisition and Retention (STAR) funds.
