Bad Religion singer Greg Graffin has earned himself a new position as a university lecturer.

The punk frontman - who has a PhD in zoology - has been enlisted by famed Ivy League institution Cornell University to teach a course in evolution this coming August.

Graffin told Bad Religion's label Epitaph Records: "This is the first year of three that I am slated to help develop the course and lecture at Cornell. I have a colleague who is a gifted geneticist, Richard Harrison, who will be co-teaching with me. I only have to lecture on Tuesdays and Thursdays. That leaves plenty of time to head overseas on the weekends!"



Epitaph are also reporting that Graffin has recently been honoured in science world by having an ancient bird fossil (discovered in north-western China) named 'Qiliania Graffini' after him. "I am so happy that they have given me the privilege of having an important fossil bird named in my honour," said the singer.

Bad Religion will play the UK's Sonisphere Festival in July followed by a series of headline shows.
