No search to replace Interim VPR Brad Shelton yet, but new Assoc VPRs appointed

Subject: deans-dirs: Welcoming Dr. Cassandra Moseley and Dr. Andrew Nelson to the VPRI Office

Date: July 2, 2015 

Dear Colleagues:

We wish to announce that two colleagues are joining our efforts in the Vice President for Research and Innovation office as of July 1, 2015: Dr. Cassandra Moseley as an Associate Vice President for Research and Dr. Andrew Nelson as the Executive Director for UO RAIN.  We are looking forward to their energy and insights as we move into the next academic year. Both will have partial appointments in our office and remain active in their research and academic appointments.

Cass will in many ways take on the responsibilities of Dr. Beth Stormshak who has ably served as Associate Vice President for Research for the last four years.  Cass will be both the Institutional Official and the Research Integrity Officer and among other responsibilities will be the direct supervisor for Research Compliance Services.  Cass has been working with the VPRI for over a year on special projects, primarily focused on the implementation of the UA CBA as it relates to the research environment.  Recently promoted to Research Professor, she has been and remains the Director of the Institute for a Sustainable Environment and the Director of the Ecosystem Workforce Program and a highly active sponsored researcher. Cass has been with the UO since 2001 and holds a PhD in political Science from Yale University and a B.A. in Mathematics and Government from Cornell University.

Andrew will coordinate and facilitate the UO activities associated with the Regional Accelerator and Innovation Network (RAIN) an Oregon consortium of government, higher education and the business community. In particular he will focus on the programming that is related to our students and faculty.  Andrew is taking the reins on this project from Associate Vice President Pat Jones who retired from the UO at the end of June.  Recently promoted to Associate Professor, Andrew has served as a member of the Research Advisory Board and he is the academic director of the Lundquist Center for Entrepreneurship and the Bramsen Faculty Fellow in innovation, entrepreneurship and sustainability. He holds a PhD in Management Science and Engineering from Stanford University, an MSc from Oxford University and a B.A. from Stanford University.

Please join me in welcoming them to the Research and Innovation team.
