Tufts University to Hire "Bridge Professors" to Teach and Conduct Research Across Disciplines

MEDFORD/SOMERVILLE, Mass. – Tufts University will bolster its approach to interdisciplinary education by establishing a program that will add new senior-level faculty positions to foster teaching and research across traditional disciplines, connecting at least two academic departments or schools.  Tufts’ recently announced 10-year strategic plan envisions hiring as many as 10 such Bridge Professors over the next five years.
