Assistant/Associate Professor in Marine Vertebrate Biology
Texas A&M University, Galveston Campus
The Department of Marine Biology at Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant/Associate Professor position in the area of marine vertebrate biology, with an emphasis on modern users of passive and/or active acoustics, and a potential focus on marine mammals, marine birds, sea turtles, and/or fishes. We seek an individual with a Ph.D. whose research complements and enhances that of faculty in the Department of Marine Biology (www.tamug.edu/marb<http://www.tamug.edu/marb>) and in other departments of the University. We are particularly interested in recruiting someone who has developed innovative research approaches to the field and who will be comfortable developing multidisciplinary partnerships with other research groups across the university. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals with a strong record of instrumentation development (electronics, remote telemetry, etc.). Teaching responsibilities will include contributing to the need of the Department and advanced courses in the candidate's area of specialization. The successful applicant will be expected to establish and sustain a vigorous externally funded research program and potential collaborations with other Departments (e.g. Engineering) as well as mentor undergraduate and graduate students.  Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.
TAMUG is the ocean-oriented branch campus of Texas A&M University (TAMU) and is presently undergoing continuous growth and expansion of its physical facilities. In addition to undergraduate programs, TAMUG is the host campus of a graduate-level Interdisciplinary Degree Program (lDP) in Marine Biology, which is comprised of faculty from six departments within the Texas A&M University System. Apart from the lDP, members of the Department of Marine Biology can also obtain joint or graduate appointments in departments on the College Station and Galveston campuses. A large scale initiative in Ocean and Multidisciplinary Engineering on the Galveston campus offers multiple opportunities for multidisciplinary   collaborations. The Department occupies space in the Ocean and Coastal Studies Building, a LEED-certified facility home to over 20 research laboratories, two teaching laboratories, and a Sea Life Center with running sea water systems.
