President Jill Beck and Provost and Dean of the Faculty David Burrows recently announced the 10 faculty members – both new and old – to receive tenure-track positions.
These faculty members cover many departments and academic areas of interest, including organic chemistry, biochemistry, experimental physics, classics, East Asian history, English, French, Japanese, economics and mathematics.
Although a full list of faculty names and information will be publicized at a later date, many of the new tenure-track faculty members have already taught at Lawrence for a few years. Assistant Professor of English Garth Bond and an economics fellow are among those to advance to tenure-track positions.
According to Dean Burrows, choosing the new faculty was a very “competitive situation,” one that involved national searches and ultimately yielded faculty who are “better than the competition.”
In closing, Burrows said of the new faculty that he and Beck are “very excited about all of them.
