Just a reminder.  We begin reviewing applications this month.


Geochemist Specializing in Climate Change and/or Environmental
Geochemistry Research. The Department of Geology and Geophysics at
Texas A&M University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty
position in low-temperature geochemistry exploring the complexity of
(bio)geochemical trends, cycles, and feedbacks between marine,
terrestrial and atmospheric systems through geologic time. This
position is part of the College of Geosciences' new Climate Change
initiative, which is in its second year of a four-year plan to add
eight positions.   The position is budgeted at the senior level, but
applicants at all levels will be considered. Applicants should
possess a Ph.D. in Geosciences or related fields.

We specifically seek applicants specializing in the development and
application of multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass
spectrometer (MC-ICP-MS) to the study of climate change, geochemical
cycles, and the biogeochemistry of surficial systems. The successful
candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous, externally-funded
research program and teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels,
including the mentoring of graduate students.  A new isotope
geochemistry facility is being built that will include shared clean
laboratory space, a thermal ionization mass spectrometer, and the
MC-ICP-MS. The candidate will have the opportunity to contribute to
this lab's development.

The Department of Geology and Geophysics consists of roughly 30
faculty members, 110 graduate students, and 110 undergraduate
students.  The Department is part of the College of Geosciences,
which includes the Departments of Geography, Oceanography, and
Atmospheric Sciences, Sea Grant, the Geochemical and Environmental
Research Group (GERG), and the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program
(IODP).  The Department and College have long-standing strengths in
paleobiology, paleoceanography, and sedimentary geology and
geochemistry, as well as structural geology and geophysics.

Interested candidates should send a current curriculum vitae,
statement of teaching and research interests, and the names, postal
addresses, and e-mail addresses of four references to Dr. Ethan L.
Grossman, Search Committee Chair, Department of Geology & Geophysics,
Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA 77843-3115.
Applications will be reviewed beginning 1 December 2004, with a start
date of September 2005.  Applications will be accepted until the
position is filled. Texas A&M University is an affirmative
action/equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through
diversity and encourages application from minorities, women, veterans
and persons with disabilities.
