Dear All

It is with much regret that we announce Donald Hobern’s intended departure
from the GBIF Secretariat towards the end of 2007.  Donald is leaving to
take up the role of Project Director for the Atlas of Living Australia,
which is seeking to develop a web-based encyclopaedia integrating knowledge
of Australia’s biodiversity.  As such, not only do we wish Donald all the
very best in his new venture whilst thanking him for his huge contribution
to GBIF’s success to date, we also look forward to continuing to work
closely with Donald, the ALA and all contributors to ABIF and to his
continued expert inputs to GBIF’s further development. 


We will communicate more details on Donald’s departure later, but in the
meantime, request that you forward the accompanying vacancy advert for a
‘Head of Informatics’ at the GBIF Secretariat to as wide a network of
suitable candidates as possible – this is a key position for GBIF and we
need to source the best possible candidate.

Best wishes






Dr Nicholas King
