Candidates who have very strong records of scholarship supported by extramural funding and who have the proven capacity or clear potential to bring externally sponsored research to Texas Tech University are encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant is expected to develop multi-disciplinary research projects, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervise ADRS doctoral students. Service duties include program-building, as well as a commitment to extra-curricular activities. Service to the department, college, and the university are expected. This position is financially supported by a significant endowment of nearly $1 million, which provides the successful applicant with annual funding to support their research and salary.
