Dr. Golding joined the MSU P-A Department's Experimental CMP group in 1991 after 24 years on the technical staff of AT&T Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, NJ (including 5-year stints as head of its Condensed State Physics Research Department and head of its Non-equilibrium Physics Research Department). He was the Director of MSU's Center for Fundamental Materials Research from 1993 to 1996, and the Director of the Center for Sensor Materials, an NSF-supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, from 1994 to 2004.
