Chair, Department of Information Systems
University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC)

The Department of Information Systems invites applications for the position
of Chair.  The successful candidate will be an experienced leader and
researcher with scholarly accomplishments that qualify for the rank of full
professor.  The new chair will lead a department with diverse research
interests, help the Department become more visible in the national and
international IS arena, relate effectively to all levels of personnel, and
network effectively with public and private enterprises.  Additionally, the
Chair should possess an entrepreneurial spirit, actively promote our
Departmentís collective expertise to further increase our visibility on/off
campus, and help lead and coordinate the possible expansion of our IS
program to other sites.

Information Systems, which offers B.A., B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees and
certificate programs, plays a major role in educating a large proportion of
the State of Marylandís IT workforce.  The IS Department has 24 full-time
faculty members who excel in Decision & Knowledge Systems, Database
Management, Human-Computer Interaction, IT Policy, Health Informatics,
Networking & Telecommunications, and Systems Analysis & Design.  There are
1300 undergraduate, 120 MS, and about 35 doctoral students majoring in IS.
The IS Department has a strong commitment to further our research
reputation.  Laboratories in the IS Department include the User System
Environment Research Laboratory, Laboratory for Healthcare Informatics,
Performance Analysis Research Center, Laboratory for Knowledge Management,
and Laboratory for Interactive Systems Design.  A highly innovative,
competency-based, distance education MS is planned for 2001 to meet the
demands of companies and those that cannot attend traditional classes.  UMBC
is located on the Baltimore/Washington corridor and close to key Federal
Government agencies.

This Department will be moving into a new building which will be completed
by December 2002, with additional laboratory space, state of the art
networking, a decision room, and a distance education laboratory.  Expansion
of our IS program is planned for Shady Grove/Montgomery County and possibly
other parts of Maryland.  The Technology Center, new Research Park, new
Center for Entrepreneurship, and the top Chess team in the country at UMBC
are major indicators for continued research, outreach, and excellence.

We welcome your statement of interest, curriculum vitae, and a list of 4-6
references.  Kindly send to Dr. Jay Liebowitz, Department of Information
Systems, UMBC, 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore, Maryland 21250.   Preference
