Opportunity at Texas A&M University

An exciting new program offering a unique career opportunity for current doctoral students and recent graduates. Texas A&M has launched an Accountability, Climate, Equity and Scholarship (ACES) Fellows Program. The Department of Recreation, Park and Tourism Sciences is one of only a few departments in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences authorised to participate.

The ACES Fellows Program promotes the research, teaching, and scholarship of early career scholars who will expand the racial, ethnic, cultural, and/or gender diversity of our faculty and who embrace the belief that diversity is an indispensable component of academic excellence.

Fellows will receive $60,000 in salary, $5,000 for relocation to College Station and $3,000 in “start up” funds for the initial two years of their appointment as a Visiting Assistant Professor. If all is well after two years, the Fellow is able transition directly into a tenure-track Assistant Professor position with a salary commensurate with other Assistant Professors in the department. Fellows would teach one course per year and have a minimal service expectation in order to promote their research program.

Applicants can be Texas A&M Former Students, or graduates of any other doctoral program. Current students need to complete their doctorate by July of 2021. Applicants do not have to be U.S. citizens.

We invite interested potential candidates to review details of the ACES program.

We invite applicants to access the application form. Applications are due by 9 am on October 1, 2020.
