	Director, Computer Science Department

The Computer Science Department at Stevens Institute of Technology
invites applications for the position of department director.

The department, organized into its present form only in 1996, has
established full curricula at the BS, MS, and PhD levels as well as
substantial research efforts in programming languages, software
engineering, computer vision, graph algorithms, and semantics.
Research support includes several NSF grants, close ties with nearby
industrial labs such as AT&T Research and Lucent Bell Labs, and
participation in two large multi-university state-supported centers of
excellence in software engineering and wireless communication.

The mandate for the director is to enlarge the department, continue
its improvement into a first-class environment for research and
education, and align its research with Stevens' strategic direction of
technogenesis, an educational frontier wherein faculty, students, and
colleagues in industry jointly nurture new technology from conception
to marketplace realization.

For this purpose, the university will devote substantial resources
such as lab space, endowed graduate fellowships, and funds for
substantial expansion beyond the present ten faculty.  Salary will be
fully competitive.

The successful applicant will have a record of outstanding research, a
demonstrated capability of leadership, and a strong commitment to
technical education at all levels.

The department resides within the School of Applied Science and
Liberal Arts, one of three schools within the university of
approximately 115 faculty, 1600 undergraduate and 2000 graduate
students.  Stevens, established in 1870, is located in Hoboken New
Jersey, a small, charming, and gentrified town that lies across the
Hudson River from midtown Manhattan.  The university has a bucolic
campus on Castle Point, a high promontory jutting out into the river.
As seen at http://guinness.cs.stevens-tech.edu/~djd/manhattan.html,
the campus enjoys spectacular views of the entire length of the island
of Manhattan.

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, contact information
for at least five references, and, optionally, other supporting
documents such as statements about past accomplishments in research,
teaching, or leadership.

Please send applications by email in ASCII, PostScript, or PDF format
or by post to:

Consideration of applications will commence on November 15, and
continue until the position is filled.  The preferred start date is
July 1, 2001.  Stevens is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action
employer.  Women and minorities are particularly encouraged to apply.
