The Department of Marine Biology at Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Marine Microbial Ecology. We seek an individual with a Ph.D. and preferably postdoctoral or equivalent experience whose research complements that of faculty in the Department of Marine Biology (www.tamug.edu/marb<http://www.tamug.edu/marb>). Candidates with research interests in any area of marine microbiology will be considered, including environmental microbiology, microbial ecology, marine microbial genomics, pathogens of aquatic organisms, human pathogens in aquatic environments, and marine microbial natural products. Individuals should have experience with high throughput sequencing approaches, as well as classical microbial analytical and culture techniques. Competitive candidates will demonstrate the potential for interdisciplinary research collaborations across the departments of Marine Biology and Marine Sciences as well as with researchers on the main campus. Teaching responsibilities will include an upper-level undergraduate course in marine microbial ecology and undergraduate or graduate courses in laboratory techniques and/or data processing. The successful applicant will be expected to establish and sustain an externally funded research program as well as mentor undergraduate and graduate students. Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience.

TAMUG is the ocean-oriented branch campus of Texas A&M University (TAMU). In addition to undergraduate programs, TAMUG is the host campus of a graduate-level Interdisciplinary Degree Program (lDP) in Marine Biology, which is comprised of faculty from six departments within the Texas A&M University System. Apart from the lDP, members of the Department of Marine Biology also maintain joint or graduate appointments in departments on the main campus. A joint or graduate appointment in the Department of Marine Sciences on the Galveston Campus is also an option. The TAMUG departments are housed in the new Ocean and Coastal Studies Building, which is home to over 20 research laboratories, two teaching laboratories, and a Sea Life Center with running sea water systems. Various shared and core facilities are available locally and on the main campus with instrumentation for advanced microscopy, genomic and biogeochemical analyses.

Applications should be received by November 30, 2015 for full consideration.. Anticipated start date for the position is fall 2016.  To apply, send a curriculum vitae, statement of current research and teaching interests and list of three references with contact information to: Chair, Marine Biology Search Committee PAR # 3821, c/o Human Resources Department, Texas A&M University at Galveston, P.O. Box 1675, 200 Seawolf Parkway, Galveston, TX 77553-1675 or by email referencing PAR # 3821 (hr at tamug.edu<mailto:hr at tamug.edu>).

For more information regarding the position, contact the Department Head of Marine Biology (Dr. John R. Schwarz) by e-mail (schwarzj at tamug.edu<mailto:schwarzj at tamug.edu>).
