The University of Maine (UMaine) and its partners seek a dynamic and transformational dean who will bring vision, leadership, collaboration, and innovation to establish and lead the new Maine College of Engineering, Computing and Information Science (MCECIS). The nature and scope of this new college are still being determined, so the inaugural Dean will have the opportunity to help shape a bold new vision. This college draws its potential members and partners from the University of Maine System’s (UMS) existing top-notch engineering and computing programs, including UMaine’s School of Computing and Information Science and College of Engineering; the University of Southern Maine’s (USM) Departments of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology; and other computing programs from across UMS. MCECIS will focus on the future and deliver transformative solutions to not only the economy of Maine, but also to our increasingly interconnected, digital global economy.
The UMaine search committee for the Dean of Maine College of Engineering, Computing and Information Science will begin accepting nominations and reviewing applications immediately. Requested application materials include a letter of interest, curriculum vitae, a diversity statement, and a list of five professional references. References will not be called without explicit prior permission. Although applications are welcome until a new Dean is selected, for best consideration, all candidates should submit materials by April 28, 2022, to: MCECISDean@storbecksearch.com.
