Appointment of MSI Interim Director

On July 14, 2008, Tim Mulcahy, Vice President for Research, announced the appointment of Professor Tom Jones to the position of Interim Director position for MSI. A member of the astronomy department, Tom is familiar with MSI through his use of MSI's services in his research in theoretical and computational astrophysics.

We also thank Andrew Odlyzko for agreeing to temporarily postpone his retirement and serve as Interim Director until this decision was made. His willingness to serve in this capacity has allowed MSI to continue to provide services without interruption, and is greatly appreciated.
