The Department of Geology and Geophysics in the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University is conducting a search to fill two tenure-track positions with 9-month academic appointments at the Assistant or Associate Professor rank. We seek creative faculty members who will lead vibrant, cutting edge research programs that can leverage the strengths of Texas A&M and the Department of Geology & Geophysics, while expanding our reach into national and international-scale initiatives. We particularly welcome applications from individuals with demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. This is an open-discipline search and we seek applicants with backgrounds that strengthen or complement research within the Department of Geology and Geophysics.
The successful candidate will be expected to establish and maintain an independent and externally funded research program, contribute to transformative teaching and mentoring at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and participate in departmental and college activities.
The Department of Geology and Geophysics is part of the College of Geosciences, which also includes the Departments of Atmospheric Sciences, Geography, Oceanography, the interdisciplinary Environmental Programs and Water Management and Hydrologic Sciences degree programs, the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), and other interdisciplinary centers including the Berg-Hughes Center for Petroleum and Sedimentary Systems and the Center for Tectonophysics.

Applications from members of minoritized groups are strongly encouraged to apply and will be actively sought.
The University is aware that attracting and retaining exceptional faculty often depends on meeting the needs of two careers and therefore implements policies that contribute to work-life balance, including the Dual-Career Partner Placement Program.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in geology, geophysics or a related field at the time of appointment. Postdoctoral experience is desirable but is not required. Initial review of applications will begin on September 15, 2021 and continue until the position is filled.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV, statement of research vision, statement of teaching interests, a separate statement that demonstrates evidence of a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as names and contact information for at least three references to http://apply.interfolio.com/89462.
