Brian Herman, University of Minnesota vice president for research, will leave that post and return to the faculty at the end of the year, President Eric Kaler said Wednesday in a letter to faculty.

Herman has held the job for four years. He’s spent much of the last three leading an overhaul of the U’s policies and practices for protecting human research subjects.
In his letter, Kaler cited that and Herman’s implementation of the MnDRIVE research initiative, as well as promoting interdisciplinary research on campus.

“I am committed to continuing his legacy in these important activities. His contributions on my senior leadership team will also be missed,” Kaler wrote.

Kaler said he will appoint an interim leader for the research office and begin a search for a successor as soon as possible.
