University of Illinois Physicist Dr. Myron Salamon To Become Dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at The University of Texas at Dallas
RICHARDSON, Texas (July 19, 2006) — Dr. Myron B. Salamon, professor of physics and associate dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will become dean of the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics (NS&M) at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), effective Oct. 15.  Salamon will also hold a newly endowed distinguished chair position in physics.

"I was attracted to UTD by its drive to become a major public research university and, in particular, by NS&M’s pivotal role in achieving that goal,” Salamon said.  “My aim is to make the school a model for 21st Century academic research and education.  It will draw strength from traditional disciplines, but will attack scientific and technological problems and the training of young scientists from an integrated, cross-disciplinary perspective.”
