The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a tenured faculty position (Associate or Full Professor) in the Department of Marine Science. They are seeking an accomplished scientist with expertise in any discipline that investigates regional and/or global marine processes. Interdisciplinary researchers who couple physical, biogeochemical, and/or biotic processes in estuarine and coastal environments are especially encouraged to apply.
