Dean, College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Carnegie Mellon University seeks nominations for Dean of the College of
Humanities and Social Sciences. Carnegie Mellon is a private major
research university that has achieved increasing eminence in recent
decades. It consists of seven colleges-the Carnegie Institute of
Technology, the College of Fine Arts, the College of Humanities and
Social Sciences, the Graduate School of Industrial Administration, the
H. J. Heinz, III School of Public Policy and Management, the Mellon
College of Science, and the School of Computer Science. The University
has approximately 5,000 undergraduate and 3000 graduate students, who
are taught and supervised by approximately 530 tenure track faculty, as
well as research scientists and lecturers. Situated in the Oakland area
of Pittsburgh, the University provides not only research and academic
excellence, but allows its members to participate in the many cultural
and recreational opportunities available in this area, which includes
the University of Pittsburgh. The city economy itself has changed from
industrial-based to service- and technologically-oriented.

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences is an integral part of the
University. The College itself consists of the seven departments of
English, History, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Psychology, Social and
Decision Sciences, and Statistics. It is also responsible for the
undergraduate Economics program. The College has an enrollment of
approximately 1100 undergraduates and 170 graduate students, and also
provides courses to students in other sections of the University. There
are approximately 115 tenure and tenure-track faculty members in the
seven units. The current operating budget is about $17 million,
augmented by approximately $9 million in direct research expenditures. 
The Dean has overall responsibility for both the educational and
research functions of the College as well as for crafting new
educational and research initiatives, often in conjunction with other
units in the University.

The College has also established a varied set of connections with the
other six colleges in the University and the University of Pittsburgh.
For example, the College has taken a leadership role in initiatives as
varied as cognitive neuroscience and brain imaging, the exploration of
large data sets, the interaction between writing and design, and the
acquisition of language.
Candidates should have distinguished records of scholarship, teaching
and service. Applicants should have experience and accomplishments
commensurate with the rank of full professor in one of the departments
of the College. Candidates should also have the skills that would allow
them to be articulate advocates for the College in representing it
within the University and outside of it as well. The external
representation will include some individual and some coordinated efforts
in fundraising.

Carnegie Mellon is an institution committed to equal opportunity and
affirmative action goals. The University particularly encourages the
applications and nominations of women and members of underrepresented
groups. Moreover, all applicants should have a clear and effective
commitment to and support of diversity and affirmative action.
We are prepared to fill this position in the fall of 2000. People who
are interested in applying for the position should send a curriculum
vitae, a brief statement of background and qualifications for the
position of Dean (not to exceed five pages). A list of four people
thoroughly familiar with their work who can serve as references and can
be contacted either by either letter or phone should also be provided. 
Applicants who desire some degree of confidentiality in their potential
candidacy should indicate that, and the nature of the confidentiality
sought, which will be honored.

All materials, correspondence, and statements should be sent to:

The Humanities and Social Sciences Dean Search Committee, 
ATTN.: Diane Hyde, 
Office of the Provost, 
Carnegie Mellon University, 
5000 Forbes Avenue, 
Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3890.

The materials should be mailed, or they can be sent email to:; if email is used, please send materials as
plain text or in MS Word version 6.0 or higher.
