Dean of the Faculty of Computing and Information Science

 

Cornell University seeks a visionary leader with proven strategic and collaborative skills to serve as the next Dean of the Faculty of Computing and Information Science (CIS). This individual will have the opportunity to lead a globally renowned and pioneering computer and information science unit that emerged early in the technology era as the home of innovation, invention, entrepreneurship, and world-class scholarship and education. CIS continues to have deep impact across the university and the dean will join at a time of particularly strong momentum. The opportunity for ongoing program expansion, significant faculty growth, and infrastructure development under the next dean’s tenure will shape the future of the unit for decades.

 

Reporting to the provost, the dean will serve as the chief academic officer of CIS and set a strategic vision for the rapidly growing unit, with primary oversight of three well-ranked departments that make up CIS: computer science, information science, and statistics and    data science. CIS is highly interdisciplinary with faculty and students in related departments across multiple colleges and two Cornell campuses in Ithaca and New York City. The dean will support faculty in advancing CIS’s research and scholarship while supporting its excellence in education. The dean will focus on advancing research productivity and funding, recruiting and empowering talented faculty and staff, ensuring an excellent student experience, and nurturing vital relationships across the university. The dean will also play a public leadership role with a variety of stakeholders and attract resources to further the mission of CIS. The dean should demonstrate a keen understanding of preparing the next generation of leaders in the changing STEM environment and have a demonstrated commitment to diversity.

 

CIS seeks an entrepreneurial leader with an outstanding record of scholarship who possesses the imagination and drive to continue CIS on its impressive trajectory. The dean should be an excellent listener, communicator, and delegator who can seize Cornell’s collaborative culture and deepen partnerships across the university and beyond.
