Dear Sir / Madam,
Re: Professor Jim Slevin, ICHEC Director
I am very pleased to tell you that Professor Jim Slevin, President of the Royal Irish Academy, has agreed to take up the position of Director of the Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC).
Jim, as you probably know, has had an outstanding career as an academic. He has worked at CERN and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Pasadena), as well as at the University of Stirling (Scotland) and NUI, Maynooth. Most recently he has been an Officer of the Royal Irish Academy and has been its President since 2005. Jim joins ICHEC on a half-time basis until his appointment in the Academy ends in mid-March this year, and thereafter he is full time with ICHEC.
Jim joins us at a very exciting time for ICHEC:
On behalf of the ICHEC Oversight Board, I am delighted to welcome Jim as ICHEC Director.
Chairman, ICHEC Oversight Board
