Ten new tenured or tenure-track faculty members joined UT Dallas’ School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
this fall, adding depth to the University’s expertise in biology, physics and mathematics while bolstering interdisciplinary research in fields such as energy and medical imaging.
Six faculty members were added to the Department of Mathematical Sciences, a department that has expanded considerably.
Dr. Bruce M. Novak, former head of the Department of Chemistry at North Carolina State University, has been chosen to be the next dean of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at UT Dallas.
He begins his new post later this month.
“I am thrilled to be chosen for this position and to be part of an institution that is rising above the ranks,” Novak said. “I think UT Dallas has what it takes, in terms of attitude and inspiration from the very top, to become a nationally renowned research institution.”
