SFS takes Dean search to the Internet
After Robert Gallucci left us for the MacArthur Foundation last year, the School of Foreign Service has been hunting for a new Dean. And it seems that Georgetown’s looking high and low—even taking the search to the internet! Vox recently found an ad for the position on the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s job posting board.
Besides calling up the amusing mental image of Georgetown’s top administrators trolling the Internet for potential Dean candidates, the posting is also interesting in that it reveals some tidbits about the generally secretive Dean selection process.
The posting was put up on October 23rd, and says that “the School of Foreign Service search committee will proceed expeditiously and has already begun reviewing materials, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.”
Interested parties are instructed to send their nominations or “expressions of interest” to an email account run by executive search consulting firm Spencer Stuart. Unfortunately the ad doesn’t list a salary or position description.
