Dear Colleagues,

job posting: https://careers.utrgv.edu/postings/19948

The School of Earth, Environmental and Marine Sciences (SEEMS) at the
University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) invites applications for a
tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level to be part
of a growing ocean and coastal sciences research cluster. We are seeking
candidates with a teaching and research focus that will complement and
expand on our existing research areas, which include: coastal geology and
geomorphology; coastal watersheds and wetlands; physical oceanography;
biophysical interactions; environmental variability and climate change;
continental shelf, benthic, planktonic, and fish species population
connectivity and genetics; biochemistry and marine geochemistry; and ocean
observing and sensing. We are especially interested in candidates who can
make use of the abundant, under-studied natural laboratories of the region
and are interested in interdisciplinary collaboration within the School.

University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley is a rapidly expanding Hispanic
serving institution in the growing Rio Grande Valley. Part of UTRGV’s
expansion is the new ocean and coastal sciences research facility in Port
Isabel, Texas, across Laguna Madre from South Padre Island (SPI), a popular
tourist beach destination. The facilities at Port Isabel expand on the
UTRGV’s existing marine science laboratory on SPI, an interdisciplinary
coastal field station with active research, education and outreach
programs. SEEMS has numerous observational resources, including
oceanographic vessels, gliders, ROVs, and a growing number of instrumental
arrays. UTRGV faculty and their students have free use of the TACC
supercomputing clusters (https://www.tacc.utexas.edu/). UTRGV is an ADVANCE
institution, one of a select group of universities in receipt of NSF funds
in support of our commitment to increase diversity and the participation
and advancement of women in STEM.

The minimum requirement is a Ph. D. from an accredited university in a
coastal and marine science related discipline.

Applicants should have established, vigorous research programs in a
relevant field and experience or promise in securing nationally competitive
external research funding. Highly qualified applicants with strong research
portfolios may qualify for significant supplemental startup equipment funds
through the UTRGV Science and Technology Acquisition and Retention (STAR)
