Dr. Linda G. Jones

Professor of Biology, Dean of the Division of Mathematics, Science & Technology - Mathematics, Science & Technology

(706) 379-5352

Dr. Linda G. Jones joined the YHC faculty in 2009 as YHC was transitioning to a four-year college.  Before that time, Dr. Jones conducted research for several years in cell signaling mechanisms in the cardiac and auditory neural systems and has published journal articles in those areas.  During her career, she has worked at a number of universities in Tennessee, California, South Carolina, Arkansas, Utah, and Montana and has enjoyed her experiences in each place. Since arriving at Young Harris College, she has taught classes in Anatomy & Physiology, Comparative Anatomy, Animal Physiology, Developmental Biology, Parasitology and Neuropharmacology.  Dr. Jones is very much invested in YHC’s undergraduate research program since it allows her to mentor students as they conduct their own research. Dr. Jones is gratified to be able to live in the mountains of southern Appalachia and feel closer to her family heritage here. In her free time (of which she finds little) she enjoys many outdoor activities such as hiking, birding, gardening, and canoeing.  She also engages in creative pursuits such as poetry, cooking, and artsy projects.  She plays both the piano and banjo very poorly, and you would not want to hear her on either.
