After an extensive national search for a Director of the newly established Neukom Institute for Computational Science at Dartmouth, three final candidates will visit the campus in January.  Each finalist has been asked to deliver a public lecture outlining a vision for the Institute. 

The Institute, which will continue the College's legacy of leadership in computing, was established through the generosity of William H. Neukom '64, Chair of the Dartmouth Board of Trustees.

The third and final candidate in the series, Dr. Richard Granger of the Brain Engineering Laboratory, University of California-Irvine, will speak on “Arts and Sciences in an Era of Computation,” Monday, Jan. 16, at 3 p.m. in Rockefeller 2.

All members of the Dartmouth community are invited to attend these public lectures.

The William H. Neukom Institute is a major academic opportunity for Dartmouth, intended to broaden the range of fields in which students will be exposed to computational science as well as strengthen research in this area, according to Martin Wybourne, vice provost for research. 

The Institute will establish undergraduate research opportunities, graduate and post-doctoral fellowships, and will involve considerable outreach.

Dartmouth has television (satellite uplink) and radio (ISDN) studios available for domestic and international live and taped interviews. For more information, call 603-646-3661 or see our Radio, Television capability webpage.
