Head of the School of Medicine

Cardiff University

Cardiff University is an ambitious and innovative university with a bold strategic vision, built on a foundation of excellent teaching and research across a broad set of disciplines. Based in a cosmopolitan thriving capital city, we have a footprint not only in Wales, but nationally and internationally. We were the fastest rising amongst the leading research universities of the Russell Group for our performance in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), climbing 17 places to 5th for quality and 2nd for impact. With annual turnover exceeding £500 million, the University is undergoing a multi-million pound investment programme for which it has successfully raised a £300 million bond.

Within this dynamic context, we are now seeking to appoint an outstanding leader for our School of Medicine within the College of Biomedical and Life Sciences. The School is structured around four Divisions: Population Medicine, Cancer and Genetics, Infection and Immunity, Psychological Medical and Clinical Neuroscience; a Centre for Medical Education, and a Clinical Innovation Hub.

Our aim is to feature consistently in the top ten medical schools in the UK, be at the forefront of world-leading medical research and provide an exceptional environment for producing outstanding clinicians and researchers for the future. Our student satisfaction rate at 97 per cent in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS), places us joint 3rd in the country.

The successful candidate for this role will have an outstanding academic record in a relevant discipline and possess exceptional leadership and management capabilities, alongside a track record of successful strategic delivery and a demonstrable commitment to medical education. You will have the personal authority, presence and expertise to represent the School and effectively further its general interests to a wide range of internal and external stakeholders.
