The president of Wabash College is tapping a chemistry professor to be the institution’s next dean.

Dr. Gregory Hess named Dr. Scott Feller to the position, which serves as the chief academic officer. He will take on the role July 1, 2014, replacing Dr. Gary Phillips, who will return to the classroom as Professor of Religion after a sabbatical leave.

Feller earned his bachelor’s degree from Willamette University, and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of California, Davis. He was a post-doctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health and taught at UC-Davis and Whitman College prior to his arrival at Wabash in 1998.

In addition to teaching and research work, Feller has held administrative posts since 2006, leading the Chemistry Department and the Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

He is a member of the American Chemical Society, Midwest Association of Chemistry Teachers at Liberal Arts Colleges, Council on Undergraduate Research, and Biophysical Society. He has reviewed more than 20 science journals and is a member of the editorial boards of Chemistry and Physics of Lipids, Journal of Membrane Biology, and Biophysical Journal.
