EEB presently has seven tenured or tenure-track faculty representing a variety of scholarly fields within organismal biology. The Department intends to enrich its mission and research emphasis through strategic hiring of new faculty. The addition of the advertised positions will bring EEB to a total of ten tenured or tenure-track faculty. With the anticipated addition of new positions in years to come, EEB should grow to as many as 15 faculty based on school-wide goals outlined by the Dean of SSE.
In addition to tenured or tenure-track faculty, the Department also has four Professors of the Practice (PoPs). The commitment of the PoPs to teaching undergraduate and graduate courses enables the Department to meet the course needs of students while allowing tenured and tenure-track faculty to maintain highly productive research programs.
