Hi everyone,

B.S. degrees have been approved; we've begun recruiting students for them...
Best wishes,

Applications and nominations are invited for the position of Chair of the
Department of Social Sciences at IIT.  Successful candidates will have the
opportunity to lead a small but growing interdisciplinary department.  Prior
leadership experience and familiarity with a technical university
environment will be a plus. Demonstrated leadership skills should include
consensus building, the support of well-balanced, successful faculty
careers, and programmatic growth and oversight in a multidisciplinary
environment. Candidates should be recognized scholars qualified for tenure
at IIT.  Area of specialization is open but preference will be given to
those who have interests in the study of technology, science, and/or the
urban environment, broadly defined. Applied policy work related to areas of
expertise is desirable as well as a history of funded research.
