The successful candidate must hold an earned doctorate in a discipline appropriate to the college, have a distinguished record of accomplishment meriting appointment at the rank of professor with tenure, and senior leadership experience within a college with health-related programs.

Preferred qualifications include an established record of research with a history of extramural funding, and previous academic administrative experience providing leadership across healthcare disciplines.
