I am writing to update you on the status of the search for the next Chair of Biochemistry and Biophysics. The committee received applications from many highly competitive candidates. We completed preliminary interviews via ZOOM with 11 applicants. The committee was unanimous in its recommendation to bring five applicants to campus for a formal interview. Crystal Walker will begin scheduling dates for visits to campus immediately and corresponding itineraries. These arrangements will be made without disclosing the name of each candidate. She will disclose the name of each candidate 72-h prior to arrival on campus.
I would like to thank the committee for working so diligently to bring us to this point in the search process. I would also like to thank Crystal for overseeing the logistics of this process. Finally, I would like to thank Brian Strahl and all of the members of BCBP for addressing our queries and motivating many to apply for the position.
Dr. Craig Cameron, Chair BCBP search committee
