2 min read

Assistant Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology Kirsten Bomblies is among 70 new faculty members who are joining the University’s various Schools this year. With the start of the new year, Harvard has hired 41 new assistant professors, six associate professors, and 23 new full professors, and promoted 20 existing faculty members to tenured professor positions.

The Office of Faculty Development and Diversity (FD&D) serves as Harvard’s central faculty affairs office and has launched a new Web site designed to support Harvard’s mission to find, develop, promote, and retain the world’s best scholars. The site provides information related to faculty recruitment, resources designed to support faculty teaching and scholarship, and detailed descriptions of institutional policies, benefits, and services.

The site will also serve as a vehicle to introduce faculty to the broader Harvard community and the public. The Web site’s home page will provide links to this year’s new faculty on a rotating basis.

Working closely with colleagues across the University, FD&D oversees and guides institutional policies and practices in all areas of faculty affairs, providing intellectual leadership and coordination across Harvard’s Schools.
