Kinchel Doerner, associate professor of Biology, will take over as interim dean of Graduate Studies and Research on July 1, according to an email Friday to faculty and staff from Gordon Emslie, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs.

Doerner will succeed Richard Bowker. Emslie said Bowker, also a former interim vice president for Research, is “moving on to other duties within the university.”

The search for an associate provost for Graduate and Advanced Study/associate vice president for Research “will be carried out in due course,” Emslie said.
