Ames National Laboratory director finalists to visit campus

Two finalists have been identified in the search for the next director of the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames National Laboratory. They will visit campus Oct. 2-3 and Oct. 4-5, respectively. The names of the candidates will be made public one business day before their visit.

Each candidate will meet with laboratory and university scientists, faculty, and operations and scientific staff, and hold an open forum on the first day of their visit. The forums will begin at 1:30 p.m. in 301 Spedding.

The successful candidate will succeed Adam Schwartz, who has led the laboratory since June 2014 and last winter shared his intention to step down from the director's post.
