I wish to announce formation of a search committee for a tenured professor who will serve as director of the University of Washington Botanic Gardens and hold the title of the Orin and Althea Soest Chair in Urban Horticulture.
Attached is a description of the position, a job advertisement, and a copy of the charge to the search committee.
This is an important position for the University. As such, I am prepared to provide additional assistance to the Committee to help identify specific candidates, make phone calls, and undertake other administrative tasks. Please let me know how I may be of further assistance. Thanks and best wishes.
B. Bruce Bare, Dean
