Campus Seeks Applicants For Dean of Engineering

Posted April 5, 2000

Applications and nominations are invited for the position of dean of the College of Engineering. The dean is responsible for the administration of the college, reporting to the executive vice chancellor and provost. The appointment will be effective July 1, and extend normally for five years.

The College of Engineering has 205 regular faculty, 1,390 graduate students, and 2,644 undergraduate students located in seven departments: Bioengineering; Civil and Environmental Engineering; Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; Industrial Engineering and Operations Research; Materials Science and Mineral Engineering; Mechanical Engineering; and Nuclear Engineering. The college also administers five organized research units: Earthquake Engineering Research Center; Electronics Research Laboratory; Engineering Systems Research Center; Environmental Engineering and Health Sciences Laboratory; and Institute of Transportation Studies. Major research programs also exist at the Richmond Field Station, International Computer Science Institute and Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Five associate deans assist the dean in instructional and research matters related to college academic units and programs.

The search for a dean, who must hold the rank of full professor, will be confined to the College of Engineering. The college and its academic programs are ranked among the very best in the nation. The role of the dean in providing the vision and leadership to maintain this exceptional stature is crucial, being both a major responsibility and a unique privilege within the university. The successful candidate will have: (1) a distinguished record of scholarship, teaching, and service to the engineering profession; (2) a record of sound administrative accomplishment; (3) a proven commitment to represent the diversity of disciplines in the college to those within and outside the university; (4) an ability to promote and develop relationships between the college and alumni, industry and others in the private sector; and (5) high competence in raising funds from donations by private individuals and organizations for the advancement of college programs.

Candidates should apply with a curriculum vitae, including a list of references, and a statement that articulates their vision for the college in the coming decade. Faculty, students, alumni and staff can nominate full professors in the college as candidates. Applications or nominations must be submitted by May 5 to:
