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  
references, and up to four reprints by email attachments to Bruce  
Herbert, Chair Search Committee: search at geo.tamu.edu. Screening of

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