Malkiel, Taylor reappointed

Princeton NJ -- At its June 3 meeting, the Board of Trustees reappointed Nancy Malkiel to a fourth five-year term as dean of the college and extended Joseph Taylor's term as dean of the faculty for one additional year. Both are effective July 1.


Malkiel was first named dean of the college in 1987. She came to Princeton in 1969 as a faculty member in the Department of History, where she currently holds the rank of professor. From 1982 to 1986, she served as master of Mathey College.

A summa cum laude graduate of Smith College, Malkiel earned her M.A. and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University.


Taylor, the James McDonnell Distinguished University Professor of Physics, was appointed dean of the faculty in 1997. A member of the Princeton faculty since 1980, he shared the 1993 Nobel Prize in physics.

Taylor earned his B.A. degree with honors from Haverford College and his Ph.D. degree from Harvard University.
