2 tenure-track Assistant Professors in Marine Biology

The rapidly growing Marine Biology Program in the Department of Life
Sciences of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi invites applications for
two tenure-track Assistant Professor positions, one in Marine Molecular
Biology and the other in Coral Reef Ecology. These positions will further
expand and complement our existing program
(www.marinebiology.tamucc.edu). Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree in a
biological (or closely related) discipline.

Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is a rapidly growing research
university located on the Gulf of Mexico overlooking Corpus Christi Bay.
With over 10,000 students, it offers a wide array of academic programs
with 18% of the students enrolled in graduate programs. Applications are
particularly encouraged from individuals with active, federally-funded
research programs and strong external collaborations who can take
advantage of our modern research laboratories and equipment. Ample
opportunities exist for collaboration with researchers from the Department
of Life Sciences as well as from the University’s strong portfolio of
marine-oriented research institutions such as the Harte Research Institute
for Gulf of Mexico Studies (http://harteresearchinstitute.org), Center for
Coastal Studies (http://ccs.tamucc.edu) and Conrad Blucher Institute
(http://www.cbi.tamucc.edu/). Our unique location provides many
opportunities for marine-related research including proximity to extensive
bays and estuaries along the Gulf of Mexico, and the Flower Garden Banks
National Marine Sanctuary.

With a population of ~300,000, Corpus Christi has numerous urban
conveniences while maintaining a small-town atmosphere. Located in South
Texas, Corpus Christi is close to popular destinations, including Padre
Island National Seashore, San Antonio and Austin.

Marine Molecular Biologist: The successful candidate will specialize in
the use of cutting-edge molecular approaches to address marine biological
research problems. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a
vigorous, externally-funded research program, supervise graduate students,
and teach undergraduate and graduate courses supporting the Biology B.S.
and M.S. Programs, Marine Biology M.S. Program, and particularly, the
joint Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Marine Biology Program. The position will
remain open until filled with preference given to applicants submitting
all requested documentation by August 15, 2011. The preferred start date
is January 2012, but no later than September 2012.

Coral Reef Ecologist: The successful candidate will develop a nationally
recognized, externally funded research program and teach undergraduate and
graduate courses supporting the Biology B.S. and M.S. Programs, Marine
Biology M.S. Program, and particularly, the joint Interdisciplinary Ph.D.
Marine Biology Program. One of these courses will be a field based,
international course in Coral Reef Ecology that the university has
conducted for over 30 years. Certifications in SCUBA by the American
Academy of Underwater Sciences and/or NOAA National UW Diving Safety
Management Program are a bonus. The position will remain open until
filled with preference given to applicants submitting all requested
documentation by September 15, 2011. The preferred start date is
September 2012.

A competitive startup package will accompany both positions. Apply online
at https://islanderjobs.tamucc.edu. Applications must include a cover
letter describing qualifications, research and teaching interests,
curriculum vitae, and the names and phone numbers of four references. For
questions concerning the Marine Molecular Biologist position, please
contact Dr. Paul Zimba, paul.zimba@tamucc.edu. For questions concerning
the Coral Reef Ecologist position, please contact Dr. Roy Lehman,
roy.lehman@tamucc.edu.
