Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship (ACES) Fellows Program

Texas A&M University’s College of Geosciences invites applications for the Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship (ACES) Fellows Program. In recognition of Texas A&M University's Diversity Plan, the ACES faculty pipeline initiative promotes the research, teaching, and scholarship of early career scholars who embrace the belief that diversity is an indispensable component of academic excellence. ACES Fellows 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. Fellows will begin their appointment in Fall 2022. The objective is for ACES Fellows to transition to tenure-track faculty at the conclusion of the fellowship.

In partnership with the College of Geosciences, the ACES Fellows Program is funded by the Office of the Provost and administered by the Office for Diversity at Texas A&M University. Successful candidates will provide evidence of a respect for, and commitment to, diversity and inclusion.

The Department of Geography welcomes applications from scholars with research and teaching interests in Environmental Justice, Environmental Policy and Human-Environment Interactions.

The Department of Atmospheric Sciences seeks scholars with research and teaching interests in Weather and Climate Risk, Climate Impacts, and Air Quality Modeling.
