Message from Hugh Montgomery: Search for Associate Director for Theory

Dear Colleague,

In June 2016, Mike Pennington will step down from his position as Associate Director for Theory at Jefferson Lab. We have posted this position on the Jefferson Lab website (https://www.jlab.org/job-openings) and posted an advertisement in Physics Today (http://jobs.physicstoday.org/jobs/7712394/associate-director-theory-center).

We have also appointed a search committee with a distinguished membership to conduct an international search and provide me with final recommendations for this position. The committee will be co-chaired by Joe Carlson of Los Alamos National Laboratory and Bob McKeown of Jefferson Lab.  Members will be Charlotte Elster (Ohio U.), Franz Gross (Jefferson Lab emeritus), Frithjof Karsch (Bielefeld U. & BNL), Krishna Rajagopal (MIT), and Feng Yuan (LBNL).

I would like to ask for your help to encourage qualified people to apply for this position. We would also like to hear from you about people you think should be considered.  For full consideration we would like to receive applications by February 1, 2016.

Please feel free to approach any member of the committee, the head of Human Resources, Rhonda Barbosa or me  - in person, by telephone, or by e-mail with your suggestions and/or recommendations.

We look forward to your participation,
Mont
