    I. POSITION DESCRIPTION AND RELEVANT EXPERIENCE
    Summary:
    Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology and is currently a Special Assistant to the Vice President for Research on Research Ethics and Integrity. He also is ethics representative and member of Main Campus Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUC). In the last 3 years, Bill has served as Assistant Director of the Office of Research Compliance, IRB Director, Chair of Main Campus IRB committee, Director of the Office of Animal Care and Compliance, and now Director of Research Ethics and Integrity Program in the Office of the Vice President for Research. His research and teaching also focuses in issues of scientific integrity and the responsible conduct of research, especially in the areas of the use of animals in biomedical experimentation, the use of humans in behavioral, educational, or social research, mentoring, record keeping, and authorship and peer review. As a Biologist with expertise in mammalian behavioral ecology and conservation, he has funding from the National Science Foundation and serves as an editor for the Journal of Mammalogy. A recent publication of his, Guidelines for the Use of Wild Mammals in Research updates conduct and standards by which animals are used in field research and is one of the top 100 most cited papers.
