Brookhaven Science Associates Announces Succession Plans For Brookhaven National Laboratory Director 

President George W. Bush earlier this week announced his intention to nominate John H. Marburger III, Director of Brookhaven National Laboratory, as his science adviser. If John Marburger is nominated and then confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Brookhaven Science Associates (BSA) will be responsible for identifying his replacement as Laboratory Director and President of BSA.

In anticipation of a potential transition in the directorship of Brookhaven National Laboratory, the BSA Board of Directors today announced that two of its members, William Madia of Battelle and Robert McGrath of Stony Brook University, together with John Marburger, will begin to plan for this transition and formulate a search process for a new Director. The BSA search process will be inclusive. Input will be solicited from a diverse set of stakeholders, including the BSA Science and Technology Committee, Laboratory staff, various community groups, and others.
