A University of Virginia department chairman nationally known for his addiction research has resigned less than 10 months after a subordinate won an $820,000 whistleblower lawsuit filed against the school, officials said Friday.

Dr. Bankole Johnson quit his post as chairman of UVa’s Department of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences earlier this month. School officials initially were mum on the reason, saying he’d stay on as a professor. But officials said Friday that Johnson had accepted an appointment to lead the psychiatry department at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.
