University of Liverpool - Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, Institute of Infection and Global Health

Location: University Campus

Closing date for receipt of applications: Fri, 24 Mar 2017 23:30:00 GMT

The University of Liverpool, which is ranked in the top 1% of higher education institutions in the world, is an institution with global reach whose activities are rooted in world-leading research excellence and reflect the dynamics of the knowledge economy. The University is now looking to appoint the Head of the Institute of Infection and Global Health.

For more than one hundred years, Liverpool has had a leading international reputation in infection research, tropical medicine and global health. Building on this strength, the Institute of Infection and Global Health brings together leading researchers in these areas from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. The Institute provides a hub for infection-related research across the University, and complements the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, Wellcome Trust Tropical Centre and PhD Programme, and the National Consortium for Zoonosis Research.

Reporting to the Executive Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty, Professor Bob Burgoyne, and acting as a member of the Faculty Management Team, the Head of the Institute will play a critical role in the creation, implementation, and review of the Institute’s strategic development plan. Additionally, as a full Professor, the appointee will be expected to conduct their own programme of international research, including the regular production of high calibre research outputs; the provision of academic leadership, supervision and mentorship; the ability to secure a high volume of research grants from a range of sources; and the identification and energising of collaborative research activity within the Institute, across the University, and externally.

Should the appointee be clinically-active, then an appropriate job plan will be put in place, which will be agreed upon depending on clinical specialty at the time of appointment. The salary will be competitive and will be made on an appropriate point on the professorial academic pay scale, commensurate with experience. The position will be based in Liverpool, England.

Informal questions regarding the post should be directed to the University’s appointed advisors, Perrett Laver: online at www.perrettlaver.com/candidates, quoting reference number 2804, or by contacting Nataliya Mykhalchenko via Nataliya.Mykhalchenko@perrettlaver.com or +44 (0) 20 7340 6237.

The deadline for applications for this position is Friday 24th March 2017. Applications will be considered by the Selection Committee and shortlisted candidates will subsequently be invited to visit the Campus. Prior to interview, applicants will be invited to give a presentation, meet with a range of Faculty members, and observe the Campus facilities. Formal interviews will subsequently take place on 3rd and 4th May 2017, at which point selection of the preferred candidate will take place.
