Job Details

Texas A&M University’s Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship (ACES) Faculty Fellows Program is a faculty hiring program that connects early career faculty advancing outstanding scholarship with relevant disciplinary units on campus. Faculty are hired as ACES Assistant Professors with the expectation of transitioning to tenure track (pending departmental review) by the end of the fellowship period. ACES is administered by the Office for Diversity in partnership with the College of Arts & Sciences.

The Department of Anthropology is comprised of 25 faculty in four distinct programs: cultural anthropology, biological anthropology, archaeology, and nautical archaeology. It also features the Center for the Study of the First Americans and the Center for Maritime Archaeology and Conservation, and is closely affiliated with the non-profit Institute of Nautical Archaeology. The department’s faculty engages in quantitative and qualitative research to answer questions related to ecology and evolution; technology and material culture; dispersals, diaspora, and migrations; and food, nutrition, and culture. The department is committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming workplace and learning environment for all of its faculty, staff, and students, attracting and supporting individuals who collectively reflect the diversity of our community, state, nation, and world.

The ACES Faculty Fellows Program promotes the research, teaching, and scholarship of early career scholars who embrace the belief that diversity is an indispensable component of academic excellence. From this experience at Texas A&M, fellows should develop an understanding of the value of diversity and inclusion and the power that it holds for students, faculty, and staff to enrich their lives.

As a public, land-grant, Hispanic-serving (HSI) research university, Texas A&M upholds its responsibility to accountability, campus climate, equity, and scholarship by maintaining a campus that affirms equity and fosters inclusion and belonging. Significantly, Texas A&M holds itself accountable to improve campus climate and equity goals through clear, accessible measures. 

ACES Assistant Professors are afforded access to invaluable academic and professional development experiences to advance their careers as scholars. The objective is for ACES Assistant Professors to transition to tenure-track faculty by the end of the fellowship. ACES Assistant Professors will benefit from: prescriptive mentoring, access to instructional best practices, a vast array of world-class research and productivity resources, and a robust network of renowned Texas A&M scholars from across disciplines.
