COLLEGE OF GEOSCIENCES - TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY - FACULTY POSITIONS AVAILABLE

To significantly advance research and instructional excellence in fields related to scientific ocean drilling, the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M University invites applications for up to four faculty positions. We seek outstanding individuals who will complement and expand existing university-wide strengths in scientific ocean drilling, especially through the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP).

We seek candidates who possess a strong commitment to research and instruction; demonstrated capacity to produce creative, high-impact science; the ability and desire to teach and mentor both undergraduate and graduate students; excellent communication skills; and a demonstrated potential or track record in securing external funding. As a collaborative interdisciplinary approach is the hallmark of success in ocean drilling science, we are most interested in candidates who value engaging in and fostering a cooperative and enriching work environment.

The Dean of the College of Geosciences will appoint successful candidates, based on expertise and preference, to one of four departments: Atmospheric Sciences, Geography, Geology & Geophysics, or Oceanography. Joint appointments are possible.

The academic appointments will be nine-month, tenure-track or tenured positions, and are expected to be at the assistant and/or associate professor level. Candidates with suitable qualifications will be considered for appointment as full professor and an endowed chair.

Qualifications

Candidates must have a Ph.D. at the time of appointment in a field related to geoscience. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to) climate and ocean change, basin/margin processes, sedimentary processes, earthquake processes, biogeochemistry, ecosystems and the deep biosphere, geophysics (including down-hole logging), geoinformatics/data science and land­ocean dynamics.

The search committee will begin to review applications 1 May. Start date is negotiable, but can be as early as September 2014.

Submit applications and address questions to Jack Baldauf, Executive Associate Dean and search committee chair. Email: jbaldauf@tamu.edu. Phone: 979-845-3651.

EARTH Science Writing Externship

EARTH’s externship is essentially an as-you-can or as-you-feel-like-it writing opportunity for select students or inexperienced science writers. It is an opportunity for you to learn about the process of writing and editing a news story and for you to get published clips. It fits around your schedule. We work with up to three students at a time.

If you are chosen to be an EARTH extern, in any given week or month when you have time to write, you'll email us and say, "Hey, I have time to write this week." Then, either you can pitch stories to us — which we would love if you feel confident in making pitches or would at least like the practice (most students don't, or don't have the time to comb the literature looking for stories) — or we can assign you a story. That is up to you. If you'd like to pitch ideas, go for it.

If you'd like us to assign you ideas, email us when you're ready for an assignment. We'll go from there. You can write as frequently or infrequently as works for you.

You can perform this work from your location, at your leisure. Once a story is assigned, you’ll have anywhere from a few days to two weeks to turn it around once it's assigned. We do ask that you stick closely to deadlines, so please keep that in mind when you tell us when you're ready to write.

Being a monthly news magazine, we obviously work on a monthly schedule. We usually assign stories for print mid-month and they're due a week or two later, with edits to follow. If you are not free when those news stories are due, then we will work around your schedule and will most likely post your stories to our website rather than put them in print (they may still appear in print as well though — at our discretion). There is also no guarantee of publication.

Whether for print or the website, you'll get published clips, professionally edited, and we will work with you throughout the process, helping you to hone your craft. We do not pay for clips as we consider this an educational opportunity for you.

If you're interested in the experience, email your resume, a cover letter, and at least one writing sample to earth@earthmagazine.org.
