My apologies if you receive this announcement more than once.


The University of New Hampshire invites nominations and letters of
application for the position of Dean of the College of Life Sciences and

The University: The University of New Hampshire is located in Durham on a
188-acre campus, 60 miles north of Boston, 8 miles from the Atlantic coast,
and is convenient to New Hampshire's lakes and mountains. This is a Land
Grant, Sea Grant and Space Grant institution enrolling 12,500 students,
with a full-time faculty of over 600, offering over 90 undergraduate and
more than 70 graduate programs.

The College consists of eight academic units: the Thompson School of
Applied Science, which offers two year Associate Degrees, and the
Departments of Animal and Nutritional Sciences, Biochemistry and Molecular
Biology, Microbiology, Natural Resources, Plant Biology, Resource Economics
and Development, and Zoology.  The position also carries responsibilities
as Director of the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station.  The
college mission is supported by 104 full-time faculty, most of whom have
appointments split between teaching and the Agricultural Experiment Station
or UNH Cooperative Extension.  The Dean is involved with several on-campus
research centers, including the Institute of the Study of Earth, Oceans,
and Space; the Environmental Research Group; the Marine Program Board; and
the Water Resources Research Center.

The College of Life Sciences and Agriculture, one of the University's five
school and colleges, enrolls 1,730 undergraduate majors, 460 associate
degree students, and 129 M.S. and 84 Ph. D. students.  Its Dean is
responsible for the administration of the College's academic programs in
biological sciences, natural resources, agriculture, and social sciences;
its interdisciplinary biology and genetics programs; and affiliated
research centers.  As the College's chief administrator, this individual
reports to the Provost and participates in university governance as a
member of the Deans' Council and the Academic Senate.

The Dean: The successful candidate will have a demonstrated commitment to
undergraduate and graduate education and research in biological sciences,
natural resources, agriculture, and social sciences.  He or she will have
successful administrative experience, including personnel and program
management, program evaluation, program development, budget development and
management, and planning as well as a significant record of accomplishment
in teaching and research.

The Dean is expected to have the ability to act as an advocate for the
College's programs; consult with faculty, facilitate undergraduate and
graduate education, research, outreach, and development; guide and promote
faculty development in teaching and scholarship; and advance the College's
affirmative action goals.  The candidate's qualifications must include an
earned doctorate, a record of teaching and scholarship appropriate to an
appointment as a tenured professor in one of the College's departments.
Above all, the Dean must possess the leadership skills to work effectively
with faculty, students, and administrators within the University as well as
with diverse constituencies outside the University.

Applications:  Nominations and letters of application should include the
name, address, phone and email address of five references, and should be
submitted to:
