Texas A&M Hiring Senior Associate Vice President positions

Posted by William Byrnes on July 10, 2019


The Division of Research at Texas A&M University is seeking applications for one or more positions at the Senior Associate Vice President (AVP) level.

The retirement of the Executive Associate Vice President for Research (EAVP) provides an opportunity to realign and expand the portfolios overseen by the EAVP and the two current Senior AVPs.  Senior AVPs report directly to the Vice President for Research and each has a portfolio of administrative, compliance, and research advancement responsibilities. Responsibilities to be covered by the appointment of new Senior AVP(s) include:

  • Oversight of the Comparative Medicine Program (CMP), as well as supervision of the Attending Veterinarian. The CMP is the centrally administered support service for research and teaching programs at Texas A&M and provides high quality animal care consistent with the standards established by the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and all pertinent local, state, and federal laws. The Attending Veterinarian is responsible for the health and well-being of all animals used for research, teaching, and testing at Texas A&M.
  • Leadership of The Texas A&M University System’s expanding emphasis on interdisciplinary life sciences, health, biomedical activities, and multidisciplinary research initiatives for the Division.
  • Oversight of the membership of compliance committees (IACUC, IRB, IBC).
  • Oversight of facilities-related issues for the Division; and developing campus-wide policies for research space.
  • Oversight of the development and recognition of University researchers at all levels.
  • Development of external partnerships.
  • Serving as the University’s Research Integrity Officer (RIO).

Ideal candidates will communicate effectively and work well with all segments of the University and its external constituencies. In addition, these positions require a demonstrated commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Experience implementing and designing processes and projects is ideal. Familiarity with faculty-associated rules, guidelines, and administrative procedures is preferred.

Applications should include a cover letter with a clear statement of why the applicant believes they are qualified for the position, a description of key relevant experience, a vision statement for the position and its role in the Division of Research, a vita, and names and contact information of three references. For full consideration, applications should be received no later than July 22, 2019. These positions will remain open until filled. Applications should be submitted through email to Dr. Mark Barteau.
