PASADENA, Calif. — The California Institute of Technology has announced the appointment of physicist Thomas F. Rosenbaum as its new president.
Rosenbaum is currently the provost and John T. Wilson Distinguished Service Professor of Physics at the University of Chicago.
Caltech said Thursday that the 58-year-old Rosenbaum will succeed Jean-Lou Chameau, who served as president from 2006 to 2013.
Rosenbaum is an expert on condensed matter physics. He received his bachelor's degree in physics from Harvard University and both a master's degree and doctorate in physics from Princeton University.
Rosenbaum will take over at Caltech on July 1, 2014, from interim president and provost Edward Stolper.
