Having just returned from our trek around the north of North America, it was a pleasant surprise to receive a letter from the Dean on my return confirming that I have been awarded two Endowed Professorships for the next 3 years. One of these was an extension of my current Hawthorne-BoRSF Endowed professorship II for which I had been the only candidate. The other is the Hawthorne-BoRSF Endowed professorship IV which was awarded after a competitive application.
Always nice to be appreciated!!
