The college provides one lab technician for every two tenure-track faculty members in the laboratory sciences. There are several ways to use these funds. Two faculty members may jointly hire a single individual and split the time, or each faculty member may hire a laboratory technician for twenty hours per week. There is also the possibility of supplementing the technician salary via internal or external funds. This funding is available for laboratory assistant costs only and is not fungible. Eligibility for this support will be extended to include the first year after a faculty member is tenured, normally a sabbatical year. Please contact Professor Jack Cheney, associate provost and associate dean of the faculty, with questions.
