Marsha Chandler, the senior vice chancellor of academic affairs at University of California, San Diego, announced Tuesday that she will leave UCSD at the end of the academic year.

Her announcement comes just a month after the university’s top fundraiser unexpectedly resigned. Chandler is the latest senior administrators to leave the university since Chancellor Marye Anne Fox was hired in fall of 2004. All but one of the university’s eight vice chancellors have left or announced their plans to leave their post since Fox assumed office.

Chandler was among the candidates considered for the campus’ top job, which instead went to Fox. In an e-mail sent to university staff, Chandler said she has been hired as the chief operating officer at La Jolla’s Salk Institute.
