Alistair D.M. Dove

The Museum of Science & History (MOSH)’s board of trustees announced the unanimous selection of Alistair D.M. Dove as the Museum’s new CEO, effective Feb. 5. He was selected from more than 50 highly qualified applicants from around the world to replace the previous CEO, Bruce Fafard.

“Al is a renowned scientist, an experienced educator, a masterful storyteller and a proven leader from a world-class institution. He’s the right fit at the right time and we can’t wait for him to get to work,” said William Magevney, board chair of MOSH.

Dove comes to MOSH with more than 17 years’ experience at the Georgia Aquarium, where he has served as Vice President of Science & Education since 2020. His previous roles spanned multiple departments, including research, conservation, nutrition and development, while his academic work includes more than 75 peer-reviewed scientific publications and one book, along with research and professor positions at Cornell University and Stony Brook University.

“I am both eager and delighted to take on this incredible opportunity. MOSH is a cherished cultural institution and I look forward to leading this preeminent science and history museum through its current programming and into an exciting future through the MOSH Genesis project,” said Dove. “Public institutions like science centers and museums are trusted community voices and I take the responsibility of keeping them a vibrant and relevant part of the social fabric very seriously.”

MOSH is currently preparing for its future location at the Jacksonville Shipyards.
