In an exciting period of growth, the University of Liverpool is seeking to appoint a new Dean of the School of Health Sciences to guide and enhance development of their provision across a range of relevant disciplines. The appointee will support and contribute to the Institute of Population Health, which the School sits within.
The Institute of Population Health’s mission is to advance globally important and locally impactful population health scholarship, through scientific programmes and civic partnerships infused with education, learning and research. The School of Health Sciences itself offers an enriching and elite level of education with an applied, teaching and learning focused perspective. The School provides courses for its 1500 students across the range of Health Sciences, from Nursing to Allied Health Professions such as Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radiography and Oncology, Occupational Therapy, Orthoptics and Physiotherapy. A particular area of expertise for the school is the use of VR and simulation experiences in an applied teaching context.
The new Dean will come into an environment that is devoted to both teaching and learning and research, with student experience at its core. Reporting to the Executive Dean of the Institute, the Dean will be responsible for realising and advancing the Institute’s educational strategy, ensuring a high quality of teaching delivery and student experience which allows for a close relationship with relevant NHS partners, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders. They will provide leadership and maintain the strong sense of community within the School, making certain that each programme’s provision is taught to the highest level of excellence.
Candidates will have a strong and sustained experience with a relevant disciplinary background in Health Sciences. Evidence of a substantial academic management track record in research-connected teaching and involvement in curriculum development is crucial. Candidates must be a health or social care professional with active registration with the relevant regulatory body. The ideal candidates will have exceptional communication skills and the ability to take people with them, with experience of working through influence.
