Jason Rohr, the Ludmilla F., Stephen J., and Robert T. Galla College Professor of Biological Sciences, will step into the role of chair of the department effective July 1, 2020.
Crislyn D’Souza-Schorey, the Morris Pollard Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences, has held that position since 2014.
“Be it about strategic planning, faculty hiring, promotions, undergraduate studies, graduate programs, infrastructure, or inclusive excellence, I have relished being aspirational for the department,” D’Souza-Schorey said. “Jason has served as associate chair in the past year and I have very much enjoyed working with him. As chair, he will bring fresh perspective, commitment, talent and unparalleled energy to the role.”
Rohr joined the University of Notre Dame faculty in 2019, after working as a professor and associate chair of the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of South Florida, where he joined the faculty in 2007.
