The search was national in scope. The search firm, Isaacson-Miller was retained to aid in the search. A notice was placed in the Almanac and an ad was placed in The Chronicle of Higher Education. The committee interviewed a number of faculty and administrators about the role of the Vice Provost. Both internal and external candidates were considered for the position. Candidates were sought who had a strong personal record of funded research; thorough knowledge of the operations and practices of a comprehensive research-oriented university; and proven administrative competence. 

The committee received 29 nominations and applications. The committee interviewed nine candidates. Two of the candidates interviewed were women and seven were men. Two of the candidates were internal candidates. The committee forwarded the names of two external candidates to Provost Robert Barchi. One of the two external candidates, Dr. Perry Molinoff, was appointed Vice Provost for Research, effective November 1, 2003.
