Adjunct Faculty

The purpose of our Adjunct Professor Program is to enhance the scientific expertise of the department, provide specialized supervision of graduate students, and increase cooperation in research and teaching with other departments and institutions. Adjunct Professor duties in our department primarily involve graduate student supervision, but may also involve teaching (graduate and/or undergraduate) and service.

Adjuncts may be contacted directly for more information about their research programs and graduate student opportunities. Researchers interested in obtaining adjunct status in Biological Sciences should contact the chair of the adjunct committee, Dr. Jim Roth
