Stanford University: Stephen Streiffer named Stanford vice president for SLAC

Stephen Streiffer (PhD ’93), deputy laboratory director for science and technology at Argonne National Laboratory in Illinois, takes on the role of Stanford vice president for SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in June.

SLAC is a national science laboratory managed and operated by Stanford for the Department of Energy (DOE). The vice president for SLAC leads the development and implementation of Stanford’s oversight and governance role and advises SLAC management on strategy and operations. The position reports to Stanford’s president and chairs the SLAC Board of Overseers, a group composed of senior Stanford officials, knowledgeable external laboratory managers and leaders from Stanford and around the world.

“I’m delighted to welcome Stephen to Stanford and to SLAC,” said President Marc Tessier-Lavigne. “Stephen brings deep familiarity with the national lab system – and he knows Stanford well, too, having completed his doctorate here. He is well positioned to support SLAC’s leadership in advancing the innovation and discovery underway at the laboratory and to continue to strengthen ties between Stanford, SLAC and the DOE.”

“This is really a homecoming for me,” said Streiffer. “SLAC is at the forefront of so many areas that are extremely important to the nation and world in research. I look forward to working with the laboratory management team to continue to advance SLAC’s mission and to create even greater scientific ties between the university and SLAC.”
