Description of Teaching Roles of Faculty, Part-time Faculty and Faculty Associates
As of the start of the 2014/2015 academic year, the Department of Biology and Marine Biology
had 49 full-time faculty, including six faculty with full or partial administrative reassignments (Webster,
Posey, Finelli, Wilbur, Volety, and Baden); 37 of these are tenure-track faculty. One faculty member
(Tomas) is 0.5 FTE within the department, with a split appointment between CMS and our department,
and is retiring this year. We are currently searching for three faculty positions. A position for a
Distinguished Professor of Marine Biology is also open at this time. Thirteen of our full-time faculty are
non-tenured lecturers: Drs. Chen, Dickens, Gilley, Kiser, Koester, McCall, Melroy, Potts, Priester,
Woditschka, and Ms. Condon and Ms. Moore. Ms. Moore serves as our department Laboratory
Coordinator for introductory laboratories, working with graduate TAs in the design and implementation of
labs for the BIO 105, BIO 201 and 202 courses; the others all have formal classroom teaching
responsibilities. Drs. Chen and Koester are departmental post-doctoral associates that support our research
