School of the Coast and Environment
Louisiana State University
Louisiana State University (LSU) is seeking applications for Dean of its
newly-established School of the Coast and Environment (SC&E). The Dean
is responsible for leadership and administration of the School's
instruction, research, service programs, and budgets. The University
seeks an individual of distinguished accomplishment to lead a
multidisciplinary faculty with a strong tradition of excellence in
research, teaching, and professional service. Required Qualifications:
(1) Ph.D. degree; (2) demonstrated experience in providing leadership in
multidisciplinary research, innovative teaching and graduate student
education; (3) demonstrated ability to create a working environment that
promotes research addressing international, national, and regional
issues consistent with LSU's Doctoral/Research-Extensive University
rating by the Carnegie Foundation; (4) experience in initiating and
facilitating new and existing faculty contacts with funding organizations.
SC&E resides in a new $26 million, 153,000 square-foot building. There
are 36 academic faculty and 12 research faculty associated with the
School. Academic faculty are assigned to one of two academic departments
within the School - the Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences
and the Department of Environmental Studies. Most academic faculty also
hold joint appointments in one of four research institutes within the
School. The SC&E enrolls 75 full-time and 26 part-time graduate
students, attracts $9-11 million annually in external funding, and is
also a member of the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON).
LSU is initiating a 7-year plan to improve the national visibility and
the research competitiveness of the university. This Dean's hire will be
the first under this new University agenda.
