5:00pm Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
The Museum of the History of Science in Oxford has appointed a new director.
Dr Silke Ackermann will take up her new role on March 1, succeeding previous director Professor Jim Bennett, who retired last year.
Dr Ackermann left the British Museum last year after 16 years to take up a professorship at the University of Applied Sciences in Schwerin, Germany, where she was eventually appointed president.
Dr Ackermann said: “It is hugely daunting to follow Jim Bennett in this position, but I am immensely looking forward to working with my friend Stephen Johnston and the excellent team at the Museum of the History of Science.”
