Rich Hawryluk Named Interim Director at PPPL

August 23, 2017

Following the resignation of Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) Director Stewart Prager in September 2016 (FPN16-33), a search has been underway for a new Director. That search has so far not born fruit. Consequently, Princeton University, after dropping the requirement that the candidate must qualify for a tenure position at the university, has formed a new Search Committee and process.

Fusion and PPPL veteran Richard Hawryluk has been named Interim Director at PPPL. Terry Brog, who has served as Interim Director since Prager's resignation, has returned to his position of Deputy Director of Operations at PPPL.
