The Rotman Institute currently has 52 faculty members, including nine core members and 43 associate members, from eight faculties at Western. Sixteen associate members have primary appointments at other universities or Institutes.
Core faculty members are given access to office space (as available) within the Rotman suite, located in the Western Interdisciplinary Research Building. They also receive staff support, and access to competitively awarded Institute funds to support interdisciplinary research projects that advance the Institute’s vision and mission. Core faculty members may act as primary or co-investigators of Institute supported research projects, supervisors of Institute sponsored postdocs or graduate students, or they may engage in service to the Institute, such as holding a seat on the Institute Executive Committee or Research Advisory Committee.
Associate members maintain a lower level of engagement with the Institute, but still contribute to the Institute’s activities in a variety of ways, from regularly attending Institute sponsored events to collaborating on Institute projects.
