We are seeking an outstanding academic administrator to administer the selection and admissions procedures for the standard medical course, to be the lead administrator for the third year examinations taken by pre-clinical medical students and biomedical sciences students (FHS / FHS Part II examinations), and to manage the teaching and course administration for the students working towards their third-year examinations. These are critical and complex areas of activity for the division.

The successful candidate for this challenging position will be of high intellectual ability, with recent and direct experience of academic administrative work in higher education.

You will be willing and able to work harmoniously as a team member within a culture of academic leadership. You will display a high level of personal discretion and judgement and a mature and responsible attitude to your work.
