TAMU-CC is a dynamic university designated as both a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI) and Minority-Serving Institution (MSI) with approximately 11,000 students from 47 states and 54 foreign nations. We employ over 1,400 full-time and 2,000 part-time Islanders (including students/GAs). The University attracts highly talented faculty and staff and offers an array of undergraduate and graduate degrees, including doctoral programs. As a member of the Texas A&M University System, TAMU-CC benefits from a range of resources, increased visibility and influence, and opportunities to collaborate in mutually beneficial ways with peers across member institutions and associated agencies.
TAMU-CC’s beautiful campus is located on a 240 acre island on Corpus Christi Bay and was ranked #1 College by the Sea by Best College Reviews. Our natural setting is enhanced by its modern, attractive, and state-of-the-art classroom buildings and support facilities.
From our generous benefits package and professional development opportunities, to our retirement programs and our commitment to service excellence, the Island University is an engaging and rewarding place to work.
This Post-Doctoral position will be part of the Coastal and Marine Geospatial Sciences Laboratory (CMGL) team and HRI at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi whose mission is to develop science-driven solutions to Gulf of Mexico problems.
The CMGL seeks a postdoctoral researcher to model coastal dynamics of the Gulf of Mexico. This position will enhance our integrated approach to assessing coastal dynamics, which includes field, mapping, and modeling components. This position would work on a variety of problems within several projects including modeling sea level rise impacts, storm surge, barrier island morphodynamics, coastal hydrodynamics, and risk assessment. All our work is couched in improving the resilience of human activities and the natural environment and involves collaboration with stakeholders and HRI colleagues.
Develop and apply coastal models simulating the impact of climate change and human activities on the natural and built environments of coastal zones. These models may be hydrodynamic, geomorphic, statistical, rule based, or a combination of approaches depending on the problem, data availability, and researcher’s expertise.
Conduct field research as needed.
Conduct research in a collaborative, team environment in the CMGL as well as within a co-production framework with external stakeholders.
Participate in the preparation of grant proposals for funding entities including federal and state agencies, foundations, corporations, and individuals.
Participate in the preparation of manuscripts for publication in peer-reviewed national/international journals.
Present research at local, state, and national venues.
Participate in preparation of deliverables for externally funded research projects.
Mentor graduate students and junior research staff.

Doctoral degree by the time of hire in Geosciences, Oceanography, Engineering, GIS, or related field
Expertise in modeling hydrodynamics or morphodynamics of coastal systems
Intermediate skills in Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook).
Excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to work in an interdisciplinary environment.
One to two years of experience writing, preparing, and submitting manuscripts for publication.
Knowledge and experience using R, Matlab, Python or similar software or computer programming.
