SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — University of California President Janet Napolitano has selected a replacement for the top job at UC Davis after the school’s chancellor resigned last year following an investigation into alleged misconduct.

The president’s office says in a statement Tuesday the UC Board of Regents will hold a special meeting Thursday to vote on the proposed appointment of 52-year-old Gary May as UC Davis’ new chancellor. May is dean of Georgia Tech’s College of engineering.

May would replace acting chancellor Ralph J. Hexter, who assumed the role after former Chancellor Linda Katehi resigned in August after months of turmoil at the public university.

Katehi resigned after being placed on paid leave last April amid allegations of misconduct.

Napolitano’s office declined to specify what May’s salary will be. Katehi was paid $424,000.
