The Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University
invites applications for four tenure-track faculty positions. All
appointments are in the Department of G&G and budgeted at the
assistant professor level. At least one position must be in a
research area in support of IODP (Integrated Ocean Drilling Program).
The other three may be in any area of the earth sciences.
We seek outstanding, dynamic individuals in any area of geology and
geophysics who can contribute to departmental research initiatives
and/or to the IODP programmatic themes. Departmental research
initiatives include: climate change, environmental and hydrologic
sciences, physics and chemistry of the solid Earth; and energy
resources. The programmatic themes of IODP are the deep biosphere and
subseafloor ocean; environmental change, processes and effects; and
solid earth cycles and geodynamics (www.iodp.org/isp).
Successful candidates will be expected to develop and maintain
vigorous, externally funded research programs, interact with faculty
in the Department and other research units in the College of
Geosciences, and contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching.
Interested candidates should submit electronic versions of a
curriculum vita, statement of research interests and teaching
philosophy, the names and email addresses of at least three

positions are filled. The anticipated start date is September 2007
and a Ph.D. is required at the time of employment.
