The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education has two new associate vice chancellors. Cynthia Czajkowski, professor of neuroscience in the School of Medicine and Public Health, has moved from interim to permanent status as the associate vice chancellor for research in the biological sciences. Florence Hsia, professor of history of science, has been appointed the associate vice chancellor for research in the arts and humanities.
The search for a new UW–Madison vice chancellor for research and graduate education (VCRGE) is also underway. A 15-member search and screen committee chaired by kinesiology Professor Dorothy Farrar-Edwards is conducting a nationwide search for a chief research officer to replace the recently retired Marsha Mailick. The PVL is linked to here.
The search and screen committee will hold two public listening sessions to give an opportunity for anyone who has an interest in this hire to have an opportunity to ask the committee questions or to share ideas about what they should consider as they begin the search. Dates and times for the meeting sessions are listed below. Rooms are TBD, so please check TITU for “VCRGE Search Committee Listening Sessions.”
