Approved External Supervisors

​All professors in the Department of Biology are eligible to serve as Honours supervisors, and are considered internal supervisors.  Advanced PhD candidates can be approved to co-supervise an Honours student with a professor from the Department of Biology.  

The Biology Directory includes the names of people with Adjunct status or are Cross-Appointed Faculty in the Department of Biology.  They are external supervisors that are approved to serve as Biology and/or Marine Biology Honours thesis supervisors without the involvement of an internal supervisor.  Students can approach these people or seek out new supervisors here at Dalhousie or elsewhere. If you are interested in having someone from a different institution supervise your thesis and they are not listed here, they must be approved by the honours committee. Have that person send a copy of his/her CV to the Chair of the Honours Committee for evaluation.
