2005, he moved to his present position at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville as Distinguished

Professor of Chemistry and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. Professor Bursten has been a

Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation Teacher-Scholar and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research

Fellow, and he has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. At

Ohio State he has received the University Distinguished Teaching Award in 1982 and 1996, the Arts and
