New Department Head of Bioscience

Dear All

Our dean, Eskild, has just informed me that a new head of department has been found for Bioscience. It is my pleasure to welcome Ole Hertel - current deputy head of department and professor at the Department of Environmental Science - as our new head of department from 1 November. Ole has many years of experience in advising authorities, contacts in the ministry and agencies and also a very strong research profile. I am convinced that Ole will be able to secure Bioscience a significant role in the new Faculty og Technology and contribute to continued and strengthened collaboration with our "sister department", Environmental Science. I hope that you will welcome Ole.

I will continue as head of department until 1 November and then transfer to a senior researcher position in the section for marine biodiversity and experimental ecology.

Peter Henriksen
Head of Department
