URA Announcement of Fermilab Director Search Committee
We wish to announce today the formation of the URA Search Committee for the next Fermilab Director. The new Director would succeed Michael Witherell, who announced last fall that he will step down on June 30, 2005, after concluding six years of service as Director.
We are especially pleased that Neal Lane, University Professor at Rice University, has agreed to chair the Search Committee. Dr. Lane was Assistant to the President for Science and Technology and Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, and prior to that, Director of the National Science Foundation in the previous Administration in Washington.
The membership of the Search Committee, as approved by the Fermilab Board of Overseers, includes individuals from the high energy physics, astrophysics, information technology, and management sectors. The eighteen-member Committee also includes six Fermilab scientific staff members. The Committee will be asked to report its recommendations to the Fermilab Board of Overseers by September 2004. A link to information about the Director Search will soon be set up on the Fermilab website.
The list of Search Committee members follows, with the possibility of one or two additional members yet to be confirmed.
Neal Lane, (Search Committee Chair), Department of Physics and Astronomy, Rice University
We look forward to concluding a successful search with the help of Dr. Lane and his Committee.
