Save job

The Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications and nominations for the position of dean of the College of Sciences. The selected individual will also hold the Betsy Middleton and John Clark Sutherland Chair.


The College of Sciences consists of the Schools of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology. The College offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in these disciplines and collaborates with other Georgia Tech colleges on graduate degrees in Bioinformatics, Quantitative and Computational Finance, and Human and Computer Interaction. The College has about 230 tenured or tenure-track faculty members, 70 teaching faculty, 215 research faculty, and 155 support staff executing $65.7 million in research this year.


Georgia Tech’s current fall 2018 enrollment is nearly 33,000 students, split about evenly between graduate and undergraduate students. The College of Sciences enrollment includes 1,592 undergraduates and 893 graduate students. In the 2017-2018 academic year, the College of Sciences granted 251 bachelor’s, 153 master’s, and 108 PhD degrees.


Having long recognized that interdisciplinary research is a key component of the continual growth of the College, sciences faculty and students are leading and engaging in a number of interdisciplinary activities with computing, engineering, liberal arts, business, design, and the Georgia Tech Research Institute.


As chief academic and administrative officer of the College of Sciences, the dean is responsible for providing leadership for the following specific activities: leadership and strategic planning, academic programs, faculty appointments, budgetary and administrative oversight, stewardship and development, and multidisciplinary partnerships. The ideal candidate will be an intellectual leader among faculty and among peers nationally and globally, a strong advocate for the teaching and research mission of the College, a preeminent university citizen, and an energetic and conscientious administrator, familiar with issues in higher education, particularly issues dealing with technology, engineering, and science. Further, the dean will have proven success in promoting and building a diverse community, and share Georgia Tech’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion of under-represented groups on campus and in the technology workforce.


The Georgia Institute of Technology is situated on an attractive campus in the heart of Atlanta, a diverse and vibrant city with great economic and cultural strengths. The Institute is a member of the University System of Georgia, the Georgia Research Alliance, and the Association of American Universities.
