AGIA coordinator takes UAF post

Posted: Sunday, September 05, 2010

ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Gasline Inducement Act coordinator for the state of Alaska will be leaving his post.

Mark Myers was named Friday as the vice chancellor of research at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. He starts in January.

UAF Chancellor Brian Rogers tells the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner that Myers will earn $214,000 a year. He replaces Buck Sharpton, who has been vice chancellor since 2005.

Myers holds a doctorate in geology from UAF.

He led the state's Division of Oil and Gas under Govs. Tony Knowles and Frank Murkowski before joining a handful of natural resources specialists who resigned due to a policy disagreement with the Murkowski administration. He also previously was director of the U.S. Geological Survey.
