A search committee has been formed to look for a successor to the University of Iowa Vice President for Research and Economic Development Jordan Cohen, according to UI news release. Cohen will retire in the summer of 2012.

Cohen was previously interim vice president for research at the UI and Dean of the UI College of Pharmacy for more than eight years. In 2010, he was appointed to be the vice president for Research and Economic Development.

The 18-member committee will conduct the national search throughout the winter and spring. UI President Sally Mason hopes to find a replacement by the end of the spring 2012 semester, according to the release.

Patricia Winokur, the UI associate dean for clinical and transitional science, and Larry Weber, a UI professor of hydroscience and environmental engineering, will head the committee.
