The Artie McFerrin Department of Chemical Engineering is searching for early career scholars to partake in Texas A&M University’s Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship (ACES) Fellows program. ACES Fellows are afforded access to invaluable academic and professional development experiences to advance their careers. A two-year (24 month) fellowship, recipients will teach one course per academic year holding the title of Visiting Research Professor. Fellows will have access to a vast array of world-class research and productivity resources, and a robust network of renowned Texas A&M scholars from across disciplines. They will also obtain invaluable mentoring experiences, a stipend, reimbursement for one-time relocation fees, a research and travel allowance and a private office. The objective is for ACES Fellows to transition to tenure-track faculty at the conclusion of the fellowship.

In recognition of Texas A&M University's Diversity Plan, the ACES 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.
