George R. Mangun has been appointed dean of the University of California Davis Division of Social Sciences.

Mangun inherits a division that includes more than 240 faculty members, 10 departments, three research centers and eight interdisciplinary programs.

Mangun was the founding director of the Center for Mind and Brain, “an interdisciplinary research and training unit dedicated to understanding the nature of the human mind and how it arises from the biology of the brain,” according to Thursday’s news release. He consults on numerous university, U.S. government, and international scientific panels and advisory boards, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Academy of Sciences and the Finnish Academy of Science.
