Please distribute widely


Yale University's School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES) seeks
outstanding candidates for the Deanship of the School. F&ES is more than a
century old, and recognized worldwide as a leading institution for forestry,
environmental science, industrial environmental management, environmental
policy, environmental social science, and related fields, teaching and research
being carried out by nearly 40 academic faculty and frequent distinguished
visitors. The School will move into Kroon Hall, designed as a LEED-platinum
building, at the end of 2008.

F&ES has a widely-acclaimed doctoral program and a large Master's program (one
of the oldest in the country in this field), and it shares coordination of Yale
College's new undergraduate Environmental Studies major. The school has a
global orientation, as reflected in its involvement in a number of areas of
global research and its active recruitment of international students, who
comprise nearly one-third of the student body.

F&ES plays a central role in Yale University's widely recognized activities in
environmental scholarship, education, and operations. Yale's Office of
Sustainability is internationally recognized as a leader in these areas, and the
University is among the few organizations of any kind to have made a firm
commitment to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to pre-1990 levels.

Candidates for the Deanship should have demonstrated strong capabilities for
leadership, as well as a record of scholarship in a suitable area of forestry or
environmental studies, either in an academic setting, the non-governmental
sector, or a government agency. Extensive international experience and an
international perspective are desirable, as is a record of leadership in
multidisciplinary research and in graduate and undergraduate education, and a
record of successful funding for research and institutional development.

Applications should include a letter of interest, a complete CV, and a list of
three references. All information should be sent to Robert Burger, FES Dean
Search Committee, Office of the Provost, Yale University, 1 Hillhouse Ave., P.O.
Box 208365, New Haven, CT 06520-8365, USA. Inquiries can be sent to the
committee at FES.Dean.Search@.... Applications received by September 15,
2008 will receive full consideration.

Yale University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer. Men and
women of diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds and cultures are encouraged to apply.
Women and minority candidates, as well as candidates from developing countries,
are particularly urged to apply.
