Vice Dean for Faculty and Research

The Johns Hopkins University invites nominations and applications for the Vice Dean for Faculty and Research of the Carey Business School. Created in the Johns Hopkins tradition of excellence, the Carey Business School is the most recent addition to the group of 10 divisions that make up the outstanding academic fabric of the University. The Carey Business School was founded on a strong platform of pre-existing business programs and numerous collaborations with other JHU schools, including dual or joint MBA/masters programs.

Reporting to Dean Bernie Ferrari, the Vice Dean for Faculty and Research will be a key member of the leadership team at Carey at a critical time, building a leading business school within one of the largest and most respected research institutions in the world. The Vice Dean will help to set the vision for and shape the faculty of Carey in its next critical phase by leading an ambitious effort to grow the standing faculty in size significantly; the Vice Dean will also have primary responsibility for recruiting, supporting, monitoring, and evaluating all faculty across all aspects of their respective teaching, research and service involvement. The Vice Dean will strategically forge partnerships with other schools within the University in order to strengthen Carey faculty's ties, to increase the School's research funding and to improve Carey's ability to support key cross-university initiatives. Finally, the Vice Dean will help shape the discussion and strategy for the School to expand its influence to non-business students across the university.

The Vice Dean will have an aptitude for administration and a proven ability to work with administrators and faculty across disciplines. To thrive within the Carey environment, the Vice Dean will have a natural inclination toward experimentation and innovation. The successful candidate will be a recognized scholar in order to fulfill the duties of the role and to receive an appointment of a full tenured professorship within the Carey Business School; the most compelling candidates will come from tenured positions in peer universities in the U.S. and abroad, as well as from other relevant disciplines from non-business schools.
