Rick Weiss of the Center for American Progress and Science Progress has compiled an extensive list of open science and technology positions that the new administration will have to fill soon. He has a few ideas as to who will be appointed to secretary of Health and Human Services (Harold Varmus is one) and to commissioner of FDA, but of all the positions, the most important will be the director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, he says. "It will be interesting to see if the new president breaks with tradition and appoints an earth scientist or biologist to that central scientific coordinating position."
