Vice chancellor for research candidates to make public presentations

Monday, September 10, 2018

LAWRENCE — Four candidates with excellent credentials for vice chancellor for research at the University of Kansas will visit the Lawrence campus in the weeks ahead. Members of the KU community are invited to attend public presentations by each candidate and provide feedback to the search committee.

The vice chancellor for research leads the KU Office of Research, which facilitates innovation, creative activity, discovery, and the application and dissemination of knowledge across all academic disciplines. The person selected for this leadership role will work to accomplish that mission in collaboration with academic leaders, faculty and staff, as well as with business and community partners. The vice chancellor advocates for research on and off campus, implements research integrity requirements and, through the KU Center for Research (KUCR), oversees the administration of research grants and contracts primarily for the Lawrence campus.

The vice chancellor for research search committee, led by Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Kristin Bowman-James, invites students, faculty and staff to attend each presentation and provide feedback of their impressions. Each candidate will cover the topic “Vision and Strategies for the Evolution of the Research Enterprise at KU.”

The university will release information about each candidate at least one business day before the candidate’s visit. The schedule of public appearances:

  • Candidate 1 presentation: 10-11 a.m. Friday, Sept. 14, Lied Center Pavilion.
  • Candidate 2 presentation: 10-11a.m. Sept. 18, Lied Center Pavilion.
  • Candidate 3 presentation: 10-11 a.m. Sept. 27, Lied Center Pavilion.
  • Candidate 4 presentation: 10-11 a.m. Oct. 5, Lied Center Pavilion.

The presentations, which allow time for audience questions, will be recorded but not live-streamed. All recorded presentations will be posted to the VCR search webpage shortly after the final candidate has presented. Feedback of all candidates will be due by 4:30 p.m. Oct.18. A link to submit evaluations will be available on the VCR search webpage.
