The Department of Environmental Toxicology and The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University invite applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Biostatistics beginning September 2016. Opportunities exist for joint and/or affiliate appointment in the Departments of Mathematics & Statistics, Public Health (TTU Health Sciences Center) and the Center for Biotechnology & Genomics, depending on mutual interest.
The Department of Environmental Toxicology and The Institute of Environmental and Human Health (TIEHH) at Texas Tech University invite applications for a nine-month tenure-track Assistant Professor in Wildlife or Aquatic Toxicology beginning August 2016.
The successful candidate will enter a dynamic research and academic environment with many opportunities to collaborate with scientists across a diverse range of disciplines.
ENTX FACULTY SEARCH
“The reason I came to TIEHH was partially of convenience(I was at TTU already because of my wife), and partially because I thought that a PhD in Env Tox would offer more potential employment opportunities my alternatives at the time(Natural Resource Management, Biology). That said, my experience here has been generally excellent and I’m happy to recommend it, even if I only lucked into it. I have found that because Environmental Toxicology overlaps with some many fields, and because TIEHH has a knowledgeable and diverse faculty, research opportunities for graduate students at TIEHH are easy to find. This is reflected in the wide variety of careers that graduates of TIEHH have moved into. I would say that TIEHH also provides a positive overall student experience, with good core classes, wonderful staff, and a generally cordial working environment. Based on my experience, I think that any student that is interested in studying the impacts of chemicals in the environment should strongly consider TIEHH for their graduate work.”

"Making the life-changing decision to attend graduate school is difficult. Finding a place that feels like a home away from home is even harder. I'm very glad that I chose TIEHH. The professors make themselves available and are innately interesting. The students stick together and are friendly. Lubbock has a big city feel while still having small town charm. "
- Jessica Mauricio
“There are a number of factors that led to me coming to TIEHH to get my doctorate. First and foremost was the opportunity to do interesting research of my own and to participate in the exciting work others were doing. Another reason I wanted to come to TIEHH was the track record the department has with graduates finding good jobs. Finally, TIEHH is an exciting environment where I found myself surrounded by a community of like-minded peers.”
- Adric Olsen
“TIEHH provided me with hands-on training on analytical instrumentation and valuable courses for a career in the environmental health field. I have enjoyed being part of the graduate program and also having the chance to present my research at multiple conferences. Now after four years I am confident in my transition into a professional career in environmental chemistry and ecological risk assessment."

Dozens of families were displaced when the well blew out on December 8, 2015. Gaines County emergency response teams were on scene for at least a week.
Hydrogen sulfide, or H2S, was released in the blowout. The potentially deadly gas made contact with many homes, forcing evacuations within a 2-mile radius.

Goliath's grimy snow mountains not
leaving Lubbock any time soon

It’s been 25 days since the last snow from Winter Storm Goliath fell on the Hub City.
But reminders of the near-record-breaking blizzard that dumped 11.2 inches of snow in two days after Christmas are still piled up in countless grimy black, brown — and sometimes yellow — heaping mountains in parking lots and along streets around the city...
...Just don’t get any ideas about testing it out on that snow ice cream recipe you didn’t try when the snow fell — unless you like the taste of what one Texas Tech expert called a combination of “gasoline, motor oil, dirt, tires, asphalt and poo.”
