The successful candidate will be expected to develop a vigorous, externally funded research program, supervise graduate students, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in conservation biology and their individual expertise. This position will further expand and complement our M.S./Ph.D. programs in Marine Biology (http://sci.tamucc.edu/LSCI/MARB/) and M.S. Biology (https://sci.tamucc.edu/LSCI/BIOL/ms/index.html). Appointment will begin Fall 2019.
