Job Description

The Department of Life Sciences at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) invites applications for a tenure-track Associate Professor of Mariculture and Program Coordinator for the Fisheries and Mariculture program (FAMA) to begin fall 2021. We seek a motivated and talented person who can work in applied areas of Mariculture including Production Mariculture, Nutrition, and Development of Mariculture species. Applicants whose expertise is complementary to that of existing faculty and who can fill known gaps in the department are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded research program, supervise graduate students in the FAMA MS program and Marine Biology PhD program, and teach courses consistent with their individual expertise.

In addition, the new hire is expected to take on the role of Program Coordinator for FAMA. The FAMA program (https://sci.tamucc.edu/departments/life-sciences/fisheries-and-mariculture) prepares M.S. students for careers in either the private or public sector in fisheries or mariculture. This is accomplished through a rigorous core curriculum combined with thesis research or internship projects. The successful applicant must demonstrate a vision of expanding and strengthening the FAMA program.

Office and dry lab research space will be provided in Tidal Hall, a new (2019) state of the art building on campus, and wet lab space off-campus at the TAMU AgriLife Mariculture Research Facility (TAMRF) is available for preapproved projects. The TAMRF is a wet-lab facility with a natural seawater system, laboratory space, as well as equipment and facilities for microalgae culture, water chemistry analysis, and spawning and rearing of marine species.

Required Qualifications:
  • Ph.D. degree in Fisheries Science, Biology or related field specializing in Mariculture.
  • A strong publication record in leading journals.
  • Experience at the Assistant Professor level.


Preferred Qualifications:
  • Individuals with active, externally-funded research programs and collaborations, who can take advantage of potential faculty collaborators and our research laboratories and equipment, including the Texas A&M AgriLife Mariculture Research Facility, High Performance Computer Center, Isotope Core Lab, microscopy and other analytical facilities.
  • Applicants whose research focus is complementary to existing faculty in the department are especially encouraged to apply.

1. Cover letter

2. Statement of research interests

3. Teaching statement that details a) preferred teaching interest and teaching philosophy, and b) strategies to guide/grow the FAMA program.

The position will remain open until a finalist is selected. Applicants are encouraged to apply by Monday, March 15, 2021; review of applications will begin April 1, 2021.

All positions are security-sensitive. Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent upon the institution's verification of credentials and/or other information required by the institution's procedures, including the completion of the criminal history check.
