In June 2015 Subhash Mahajan informed the Acta Materialia, Inc. Board of Governors that he plans to step down from his Coordinating Editor position effective March 1, 2016. After a call for applications from the Editorial Staff of Acta Materialia’s three journals, a search and interviews were conducted over several months.   

I’m very pleased to announce that, following a vote by the Board of Governors, Christopher A. Schuh (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) was offered and accepted the position of Coordinating Editor of Acta Materialia, Inc., with a 4-year term to begin March 1, 2016. Chris has been a valuable member of the Acta Materialia editorial team since 2012, and we’re excited that Chris will be leading the three Acta journals (Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia, and Acta BioMaterialia) into the future.
