The following is Susan’s email:
“I am pleased to announce that John Wardle will be the new Head of the Division of Science. John is an astrophysicist and Professor of Physics and is a former chair of the Physics department. In his new role he will oversee science-wide programs and initiatives, including the summer undergraduate research program and will work with Division of Science faculty and staff to identify new directions for the division. I am delighted that he has agreed to take on this role and I hope that you will join with me in welcoming him.
We all owe a debt of gratitude to Eve Marder who, as the first Head of the Division, created and steered many of the priorities of the Division. During her time as Head, Eve ably represented the Sciences at Brandeis and beyond, worked to make the Summer Undergraduate Science Program a flourishing success, changed the way we trained students and postdocs in the ethical conduct of research, and worked tirelessly to secure funding and recognition for the Sciences. Thank you Eve!”
