Texas A&M University at Galveston (TAMUG) will seek applications for a competitively awarded 2 year postdoctoral fellowship from highly qualified candidates interested in any aspect of marine sciences, oceanography, coastal/ocean engineering, marine policy and management, or maritime affairs. Research focusing on Texas and the Gulf of Mexico will take priority, in particular research that focuses on coastal resiliency and sustainability. Fellowships will provide 100% salary support for 1 year, with potential for a one-time 1 year renewal upon performance and successful recommendation of the advisor. A small stipend for computer, travel and miscellaneous expenses will also be added to the Fellowship. Each fellowship must be sponsored by a TAMUG faculty member who may only support one research proposal per year. Each fellow will receive a competitive compensation package. Fellows are expected to elevate the research effort at TAMUG and as such will be expected to publish in top tier journals. Publications in open access journals only (e.g., PLOS One) will receive funds to defer publication costs. Post-doctoral Fellows will be selected by a multi-disciplinary university faculty committee from an applicant pool based on their application materials. Starting salary for the post-docs will be $50,000 per year with applicable university benefits. All application materials will be due by July 15, 2015. Expected start date will be around September 1, 2015.
