Suresh Confirmed as New NSF Director
30 September 2010 11:11 am
Subra Suresh has been confirmed as the 13th director of the National Science Foundation. The U.S. Senate voted to approve the Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineering dean by unanimous consent late last night before adjourning until 15 November. Suresh, who will serve a 6-year term, succeeds Arden Bement, who stepped down in April 6 months short of the end of his term. Cora Marrett, who has been serving as acting director, will return to her temporary post as NSF deputy director while she awaits Senate approval to hold the position on a permanent basis.
