Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship Fellows 2020-2021 Program, Texas A&M University

Texas A&M University’s Accountability, Climate, Equity, and Scholarship (ACES) Fellows Program is a faculty pipeline initiative that connects those advancing outstanding scholarship with relevant disciplinary units on campus. For 2020, the ACES Fellows Program is administered by the Office for Diversity at Texas A&M in partnership with four colleges: The Bush School of Government and Public Service;   College of Education and Human Development; College of Geosciences;  and College of Liberal Arts.

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.

ACES Fellows are afforded access to invaluable academic and professional development experiences to advance their careers as scholars. It is possible that some ACES Fellows will be hired as tenure-track faculty at the conclusion of the fellowship. 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.

• Texas A&M University’s ACES Fellows Program is a two-year (24 month) fellowship for early career PhDs. Applicants should have earned their PhD between January 1, 2017 and July 1, 2021.
• The stipend is $60,000 per year plus benefits. Benefits including medical, dental, and vision are available. The fellowship period generally begins August 1 and ends on July 31. Start dates are negotiable, but must commence between July 1 and August 10.
• Fellows will receive reimbursement for one-time relocation fees (up to $5,000), a research and travel allowance of $3,000 per year, and a private office.
• ACES Fellows will teach one course per academic year, thereby benefiting from dedicated research time. Fellows will hold the title of Visiting Assistant Professor.
• A hallmark of the Texas A&M University’s ACES Fellows Program is the mentoring ACES Fellows will receive, as well as its attention to community-building among ACES Fellows.

Applications are welcome from scholars with a strength in, and evidence of, a respect for diversity and inclusion. Applicants' doctoral degrees should be completed between January 1, 2017 and July 1, 2021.
