The story “Univ. scientists betray concerns” misstated the title of Derek Briggs, a professor of geology and geophysics, at the Peabody Museum of Natural History. He is already a curator there; beginning in January, he will serve as the museum’s director.

(As previously corrected, the story incorrectly reported that A. Stephen Morse, chair of the electrical engineering department, said the appointment of a humanist and not a scientist as dean of Yale College — when neither the provost nor dean of the Graduate School is a scientist — runs contrary to Yale’s commitment to the sciences. Rather, Morse said the appointment could be perceived by outsiders as doing that.)
