Dr. John Lynch joined Barrett in 2000 and teaches sections of "The Human Event" along with an upper-division course on Ancient Greek drama and culture. In addition he occasionally offers courses on the intersections of science, religion & philosophy.

While trained as an evolutionary morphologist (PhD, University College Dublin, 1993), Dr. Lynch's research currently focuses on scientific, theological and cultural responses to evolutionary ideas. He is affiliated with the Center for Biology & Society and the program in Human & Social Dimensions of Science & Technology and has served on graduate committees for students in both. He maintains a strong interest in science education and has served on the education committees of both the History of Science Society (HSS) and the International Society for the History, Philosophy and Social Studies of Biology (ISHPSSB).

Dr. Lynch has received recognition from the ASU community for his teaching and service including; the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Distinguished Teaching Award (2000), the Barrett Faculty Award for Outstanding Academic Service (2006), the inaugural Provost’s Faculty Achievement Award for Service (2006), and the Barrett Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching (2011). In 2007 the Council for the Support & Advancement of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching named him Professor of the Year for Arizona.
