Nominations, applications for Vet Med dean post due July 22

The search committee charged with finding the next dean of the Veterinary Medicine college encourages nominations and applications for the position by July 22.

A position description is available on the provost's search website. Nominations or comments about the search can be submitted to the committee at this same website, or by e-mail to vmdean@iastate.edu. Applications should be submitted on Iowa State's jobs website.

Business dean Labh Hira is co-chair of the search committee. Associate provost Dave Holger will assist until the associate provost for academic personnel (successor to Susan Carlson, the other co-chair) is in place.

Final candidates likely will visit campus this fall. The intent is to have a new dean in place by Jan. 1, 2011, when dean John Thomson will retire from the post. Thomson will remain on the ISU faculty.
