Required education: Administrative Management
The City College of New York (CCNY) is seeking an outstanding leader to serve as dean of the Division of Science. Reporting to the provost and chief academic officer, this position is of central importance to the continued evolution of the university’s science initiatives, and presents a rare opportunity for a gifted leader to define and realize a new era of achievement for a remarkable institution.
The City College Division of Science consists of five departments and several interdisciplinary programs and offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in all its disciplines. Four CUNY Ph.D. programs in the sciences train students in approximately 60 laboratories on the City College campus. The division includes 103 faculty members who teach 1,700 undergraduates (500 of them science majors), 115 master’s students and 120 Ph.D. students. Division of science research programs, e.g., photonics, nanotechnology, structural biology, neuroscience and environmental science, are led by 70 research-active faculty, including three members of the National Academy of Science, several fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and six University Distinguished Professors. Through partnerships with engineering and biomedical education units of the college, and with external institutions, such as the New York Structural Biology Center, the New York Academy of Sciences, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Brookhaven National Laboratory, the division has established itself as a strong research player in the NYC metropolitan area.
An unprecedented growth in research is evident in the division. With a major investment of $750 million from the State of New York, the construction of world-class research facilities is underway which will yield nearly 400,000 square feet for state-of-the-art laboratories and offices, nuclear magnetic resonance and imaging facilities, an electron microscopy center, a vivarium, as well as a café and a lecture hall. Together with the adjacent New York Structural Biology Center, the buildings are expected to form a research hub that will provide outstanding opportunities for faculty and science students.
The dean will be an energetic, self-assured academic leader of stature with a Ph.D. degree in a relevant discipline; an outstanding record of teaching, research, and service that will warrant appointment as full professor; and significant senior-level experience in managing complex programs. This is an exceptional opportunity for an individual with the drive, skill, and experience to bring creative leadership to the organization and to play a meaningful role in shaping its future.
