​Division Faculty Membership

The mission of the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (DBBS) is to foster training in interdisciplinary science and to cultivate the diverse career aspirations of our trainees. The Division is responsible for recruiting pre-doctoral students of the highest caliber and ensuring that their academic training, co-curricular experiences, and research prepare them for a broad spectrum of productive and creative scientific careers. 

Washington University faculty advisors and mentors are key to the broad training mission of DBBS.  Some serve as principal lab advisors in addition to other roles.  Faculty can apply for Program Membership if they wish to train students in their labs, are assistant professors and above on the Investigator/Tenure track, and can demonstrate the ability to support students.  Faculty with questions about Program Membership or seeking an​ exception to Program Membership criteria should contact the Associate Dean.

Important contributions to the broader training mission of Washington University can be made in ways that don’t include primary mentoring of students in their thesis work. Faculty who wish to serve other training and mentorship roles in DBBS (committee members, course instructors, career mentors) can apply to General Membership.
