U of MN vice president among finalists for top job at UW-Madison
The sole internal candidate, Dr. Gary Sandefur, has been dean of the College of Letters and Sciences since 2004.
The other candidates include Dr. Biddy Martin, provost of Cornell University in New York; Dr. Timothy Mulcahy, vice president for research at the University of Minnesota; and Dr. Rebecca Blank, the former dean at the Gerald Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan.

He joined the human oncology faculty in 1985 and served as associate dean for biological sciences from 1996 to 2002.
