University of Haifa Welcomes New VP for External Affairs & Resource Development

Dr. Dan Tchernov


Dr. Dan Tchernov is a marine biologist and the Founder and Head of the Marine Biology Department in the
Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences. He also heads the Morris Kahn marine research stations
in Sdot Yam and Ashdod.


Dr. Dan Tchernov has been appointed the new Vice President for External Affairs and Resource Development starting October 1.

Since joining the University in 2009, Dr. Tchernov has been directly responsible for a number of significant fundraising projects for the University.

We are confident that his extensive experience will serve to advance the academic interests of the University and the north of Israel.

He replaces Yariv Sultan, who after serving a successful term as the VP for Resource Development and External Relations, has

decided to pursue other professional challenges. Mr. Sultan was a driving force behind some of the most generous gifts to the

University, and we wish him much success in his new endeavors.
