The University of Delaware is conducting a national search to identify the next dean of the College of Health Sciences.

Reporting directly to the University Provost, the Dean of the College of Health Sciences serves as a key member of the University’s senior leadership team and is responsible for leadership of the College, including the development, operation and sustained excellence of all academic programs across the College’s schools, departments and interdisciplinary centers and institutes.

The ideal candidate will be expected to have a proven record of positive transformational change in the health sciences fields. Priority will be given to candidates who have established a record of being a highly strategic, results-focused leader, with experience working effectively with a faculty who wish to pursue an ambitious agenda for increased academic excellence, stature, rankings, and extramural research funding. The successful candidate should possess a record of scholarly productivity commensurate with appointment as Full Professor, strong leadership skills, with a track record building relationships, communicating and interacting effectively with individuals from diverse backgrounds and at all levels. Candidates with records of academic innovation and entrepreneurship are especially welcome. Also invited to apply are outstanding candidates from non-traditional backgrounds, who have excelled in health sciences leadership and innovation in government, civil society or the private sector who also bring academic credentials and experience.

The University of Delaware is committed to academic and inclusive excellence by building a community of faculty, staff and students who are both diverse and respectful of human differences and by promulgating a campus climate and culture that appreciates and celebrates diversity in all aspects, including diverse perspectives, race, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, and gender identity or expression.
