Interviews for associate dean for research in the College of Arts and Sciences

Submitted by College of Arts and Sciences

The search committee for the next associate dean for research announces the interview schedule for candidates Chris Culbertson on Feb. 26, Ted Morgan on Feb. 28 and Marcellus Caldas on March 4. Each candidate will give a presentation, on their vision for the associate dean for research in 217 Calvin Hall. All presentations will be open to the public.

Culbertson is currently a professor of chemistry and co-founder of Molecular Biosensing Diagnostics at K-State. He has previously served as a research scientist at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Culbertson's research interests are focused on developing novel separation and sample handling components for microfluidic devices and then using these devices to solve interesting bioanalytical problems with special emphasis in the areas of protein separations (proteomics) and single cell analysis. This research is multidisciplinary in nature drawing upon knowledge in the fields of chemistry, physics, engineering, cell biology, and biochemistry.

Culbertson will present at 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26. See Culbertson's full interview schedule

Morgan is an associate professor in the Division of Biology, an affiliate faculty member in the Interdepartmental genetics program and an ancillary faculty member in the entomology department, all at K-State. Morgan also is program director of the Integrative Ecological Physiology Program, Physiological and Structural Systems Cluster, Integrative Organismal Systems, Directorate for Biological Sciences, and U.S. National Science Foundation in Alexandria, Virginia. Morgan's research focuses on the subdivision of species into systems of finite subpopulations and the patterns of phenotypic and genetic variation within and among populations.

Morgan will present at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 28. See Morgan's full interview schedule.

Caldas is an associate professor of geography and assistant provost of international collaboration and educational programs in the Office of International Programs.
