John Hutchens Jr., assistant professor of biology, joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in 2002. He earned a bachelor's degree in biology in 1989 and a master's degree in 1994 in biology from Virginia Polytechnic Institute. He earned a Ph.D. in ecology from the University of Georgia.

An aquatic ecologist, Hutchens has been working as a research biologist for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

His research interests include the structure and function of stream and wetland ecosystems, how human activity influences aquatic ecosystems, and benthic macroinvertebrates and ecosystem processes. His primary research includes snail productivity in local salt marshes, and the controls on prey capture by Venus flytraps near Carolina Bay wetlands.
