The Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management (NREM) at Iowa State University is recruiting for the next Director of the North Central Regional Aquaculture Center (NCRAC). The university, NCRAC Board, and key stakeholders developed a position description and conducted a national search in spring 2022. Unfortunately the position was not filled. Iowa State University and the board will be working together to re-advertise the position sometime this summer. In the meantime, Dr. Stephen J. Dinsmore will serve as interim director for NCRAC.
