Dear Colleagues:

As you know, Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost (EVCP) Washington is stepping down from his position to assume a new role at UCLA as Dean of the David Geffen School of Medicine and Vice Chancellor of Health Sciences. Now that I am beginning the search for his permanent replacement, I write to invite applications and nominations. The job description, attached and located here: http://chancellor.ucsf.edu/EVCP.pdf, outlines the general scope of the role.

Please bring this opportunity to the attention of talented academic administrators who might be ready for this role. I am looking for an exceptional leader and manager with deep knowledge of UC and ideally UCSF. I welcome your assistance with identifying a diverse pool of qualified candidates whose experience, teaching, research, or community service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity.

Review of applications and nominations will begin in January 2010 and continue until an appointment is made. Cover letters and resumes should be forwarded to:

Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann
