Job Announcement: Miller Library, Hopkins Marine Station

It is with mixed feelings that I post this job.  I love my job, but after 32 years at Stanford, I have decided to retire to allow more time for diving adventures, travel, and spending time with friends and family.

When I moved down from main campus 21 years ago it was a “reassignment” so the job was not posted.  My predecessor, Alan Baldridge, also held the job for several decades, so this will be the first time in almost half a century that the job is being advertised.  It is a rare opportunity for the right person.
