The School of Computing at George Mason University invites applications and nominations for the position of Divisional Dean. The Divisional Dean will play a critical leadership role in guiding the evolution of the newly formed School of Computing, capitalizing on the momentum that is propelling Mason into the ranks of some of the most highly regarded public research universities in the nation.
In conjunction with Amazon's decision to establish a second headquarters in Northern Virginia, the Commonwealth of Virginia announced a multi-year plan to invest $750 million in the growth of degree programs in computing. At that time, Mason committed to accelerate its plans to grow its capacity in computing-related disciplines and, in June 2021, launched a brand-new School of Computing that sits alongside the Volgenau School of Engineering, under the umbrella of the College of Engineering and Computing.
The School has 71 tenured and tenure-track faculty and 49 instructional and research faculty with wide-ranging research interests across the Departments of Computer Science, Information Sciences and Technology, and Statistics.For more information, see https://bit.ly/GMUComputing. By 2/7/2022, interested candidates or nominators should submit confidentially, in MS-Word or PDF files, a CV and letter of interest to GMU.Computing@russellreynolds.com.
