The Department of Biology in the College of Arts and Sciences at Texas A&M University (TAMU) invites applications for two full-time, tenure-track assistant professor positions with 9-month academic appointments beginning August 1, 2024. We are interested in recruiting talented neurobiologists that complement the department’s existing strengths, including regeneration and repair, glial biology, plasticity, neurodegeneration, neurodevelopment, and resilience. Research groups in the department work in diverse animal models, including mice, fish, Drosophila, and C. elegans.
This search represents the continuation of a multi-year strategic hiring effort to move several cutting-edge research areas within the biological sciences at Texas A&M University to preeminence. Expectations for successful candidates are to develop an externally funded research program, teach undergraduate and/or graduate courses, and engage in activities outside the fields of teaching and research as part of the department’s service expectations. This is an exciting opportunity for new hires to be a part of a rapidly growing department focused on interdisciplinary problems in biology. The Department of Biology (www.bio.tamu.edu) provides many opportunities to recruit trainees through undergraduate research programs, PhD programs in Biology, as well as participation in exciting interdepartmental doctoral programs such as Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (eeb.tamu.edu), Genetics (genetics.tamu.edu), and Neuroscience (tamin.tamu.edu). The position includes competitive startup packages and modern laboratory space.
Bryan-College Station, home to Texas A&M University, is a vibrant, dynamic, and rapidly growing community that offers cultural diversity, arts and entertainment, job opportunities, and overall quality of life. Located in the heart of the Houston-Dallas-Austin triangle, the region offers the modern amenities of a big city with a warm, small-town charm, and the community’s low cost of living is advantageous to the student and general populations, making it an ideal place to live. Texas A&M University is committed to enriching the learning and working environment for all visitors, students, faculty, and staff.
We require all candidates to have a Ph.D. in biology, neurobiology, or a related field. We will consider candidates with research programs focused on neural regeneration, neural repair, and synaptic plasticity or related areas. The criteria for selection will be creativity and excellence in research and scholarship, the potential to establish and maintain an extramurally funded research program.
