2016-2020 Research Associates

Research Associates of the NSRL are "professionals, who may or may not be employees of Texas Tech University, who are associated in a professional manner with the collections and/or the personnel of the NSRL." They are appointed by the Executive Director of the Museum to serve 5-year terms (renewable). The appointment is honorary and there is no financial remuneration for the appointment. The responsibilities of a Research Associate include carrying out field and laboratory research and scholarly activities in association with the professional staff of the NSRL, and promoting the NSRL through the production of collections-based research and scholarly activities. The students of Research Associates often utilize the resources of the NSRL to complete the requirements for their graduate degrees. Since 1970 the collaborative relationships between the NSRL and the Research Associates have been profitable for Texas Tech University, the Museum of Texas Tech University, and the science of mammalogy.
