Job description

The Faculty of Life Sciences and Medicine is an internationally renowned centre of excellence in biomedical sciences, situated in the heart of London. We undertake ground-breaking research, basic science to translational, to improve the wellbeing of our communities, and engage with organisations around the world to create real value for society. There are presently nearly 500 academic staff, nearly 800 research staff and over 700 professional services staff within the Faculty. We have over 7000 students pursuing an extensive range of undergraduate programmes (including medicine, pharmacy, physiotherapy, biosciences, biomedical engineering) as well as masters and PhD programmes.

Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine | King’s College London (kcl.ac.uk)

Both our student and staff body and our surrounding communities in London are highly diverse. The Faculty has an ambitious agenda in Diversity, Development and Inclusion and we are seeking an experienced academic with a track record of scholarship in this area who will play a leading role in driving this forward. 

There are two main components to the role. Firstly, the successful candidate will have a strong track record of high-quality research and education in the broad area of diversity and inclusion (D&I), ideally of relevance to the Faculty and its staff and students. They will contribute relevant teaching in D&I on undergraduate and/or postgraduate programmes. You should hold a PhD in a relevant field and have a high-quality track record of publications in leading refereed journals and in securing research income, commensurate with the level of appointment. The Faculty places a premium on international levels of scholarship and research excellence, and you will be based within one of our Schools or the Centre for Education.

Secondly, you will lead the development and delivery of Faculty Diversity, Development and Inclusion (DDI) strategy (covering staff and students), supported by a Faculty People & Culture Manager. You will chair the Faculty Diversity, Development and Inclusion Committee, work with School People & Culture Leads and connect with the wider university in developing and embedding diversity, development and inclusion across all our activities. This part of the role is expected to take up approximately 30% of the role-holder’s time. 

The Faculty offers a friendly and collegial working environment that encourages teamwork and innovation, and supports individual Faculty members in achieving their personal work goals.

We particularly welcome applications from black and minority ethnic background candidates as they are currently under-represented within the faculty at this level.
