Committee starts the search for new CMS AD

In his State of the Lab talk last week, Director Bruce Tarter announced that Jeff Wadsworth, deputy director for Science and Technology, will chair the screening committee to seek and review candidates for the associate director for Chemistry and Materials Science.

Hal Graboske, the current CMS AD, announced his resignation last week. Graboske will remain AD until the search and selection for his successor is complete.

The Screening Committee members are: Mike Colvin (Biology and Biotechnology Research Program); Glenn Fox, Gil Gallegos, Judy Kammeraad, Andrew Quong, and Charlie Westbrook (Chemistry and Materials Science); Steve Ashby (Computation); Elaine Chandler (Defense and Nuclear Technologies), Norm Burkhard (Energy and Environment); Glenn Mara (Engineering); Warren Hsing (NIF Programs); Melanie Elder (Nonproliferation, Arms Control, and International Security); Andy McMahan (Physics and Advanced Technoloiges); and Laura Gilliom (University Relations Program).
The committee has already met and Wadsworth hopes to complete the screening process as expeditiously as possible.
