After our experience with several candidates this past summer and following consultation with the museum staff, President Albrecht, Provost Cockett, George Wanlass, and other stakeholders, I have contacted Carol Strong and the rest of the committee to ask them to continue the search. We will readvertise the position immediately.
I would ask that you help us to identify any candidates you may know who might either be interested themselves or who might know others to nominate. Please let Richard Ratliff, our search manager, know the names and either phone number or email address of any relevant contacts you may have. Richard may be best reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking forward to an expanded pool of applicants and a successful search.
In the meantime, the museum is in good hands with Professor Chris Terry as Interim Director. Although the museum remains closed to the public, Chris and his team are happy to schedule tours for classes or individuals by appointment. Please be in touch with him if the collection would be of benefit to your students.
