The Department of Geology and Geophysics invites individuals interested in being considered for faculty appointments to submit his/her CV to Michele Beal (see below). These materials will be kept on file for one year and will be reviewed as relevant job openings become available.
The Department of Geology and Geophysics has four faculty job openings. Qualified individuals are invited to apply.
Assistant Professor in Geology and Geophysics - Hydrogeology
We seek a field-based hydrogeologist whose interests complement existing departmental strengths, including laboratory and theoretical studies, fluvial geomorphology, fractured reservoirs, rock physics, and isotope and environmental geochemistry. The successful candidate will be expected to develop and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program, and teach introductory geology and graduate-level courses in specialized topics.
Assistant Professor in Geology and Geophysics - Reflection Seismology
The successful candidate will establish an active, innovative externally funded research program that emphasizes the use of geophysical techniques interpreting subsurface geology. Preference will be given to applicants whose interests complement current departmental strengths in petroleum geology and geophysics, sedimentology, stratigraphy, and structural geology. The successful candidate will be expected to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels in their specialty, including classes in the Petroleum Certificate curriculum and to supervise undergraduate, M.S. and Ph.D. research, including students who are interested in pursuing careers in the petroleum industry.
Assistant Professor in Geology and Geophysics - Rock Mechanics/Rheology/Structure
The successful applicant will establish an active research program in the Department Geology and Geophysics and the Center for Tectonophysics. We are particularly interested in individuals who creatively combine experimental rock mechanics with observational or theoretical approaches in conducting research that is important and timely. Preference will be given to applicants whose interests complement and broaden our existing strengths in poromechanics, fracture and earthquake physics, rheology of the crust and uppermost mantle, and multidisciplinary studies of natural and engineered subsurface systems.
Assistant Professor in Geology and Geophysics - Sedimentology/Stratigraphy
The successful candidate will be expected to initiate and maintain a vigorous, externally-funded research program that could include sequence stratigraphy, the sedimentary record of long-term climate change, depositional processes, diagenesis, or any related area of study. In addition, the candidate will be expected to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate levels in his or her specialty and to supervise undergraduate, M.S., and Ph.D. research.
The successful candidates will be encouraged to participate in interdisciplinary research and teaching programs of the College of Geosciences, including the Berg-Hughes Center for Petroleum and Sedimentary Systems, the Center for Tectonophysics, the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), and the Water Management & Hydrologic Science Program, and in programs of other Colleges of the University.

Basin Modeling Fellowships
The Berg(HughesCenter (BHC) for Sedimentary and Petroleum Systems and the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University invite applications from outstanding students for graduate fellowships in sedimentary basin modeling. Five fellowships will be awarded. These fellowships are for three years for Ph.D. students and for two years for M.S. students. The fellowships are $30,000 per year. Awards will be made starting the fall semester of 2013. FOR MORE INFORMATION
Sedimentary Basin Analysis and Modeling Plan
The Berg-Hughes Center (BHC) for Sedimentary and Petroleum Systems and the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Texas A&M University invite applications from individuals for a non-tenure-track, three-year renewable contract position as a senior research professor (full-professor) in Sedimentary Basin Analysis and Modeling beginning September 1, 2013. This position will be a joint appointment with teaching, research and service responsibilities in the Berg-Hughes Center and Department of Geology and Geophysics. MORE MORE INFORMATION
Associate Research Specialist / Laboratory Manager — We invite applications for a Laboratory Manager position for the Stable Isotope Geosciences Facility (SIGF). SIGF houses a Picarro cavity ring-down spectrometer and three mass spectrometers (MAT253, MAT252, DeltaPlus XP) and associated peripheral devices (Kiel IV carbonate device, two EAs, TC/EA, Gas Bench II, and GC-combustion system).
