We are seeking to appoint an exceptional academic leader to be at the forefront of the creation of our Faculty of Health, Wellness and Life Sciences that will bring together new courses from 2024, with the existing Schools of Children, Young People & Families, and Sport & Wellbeing.
The role is an integral part of the academic leadership team and reports to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor.
As Faculty Dean, you will oversee the development of the newly established Faculty in line with the University’s vision and Strategic Plan, which includes a significant investment in Health & Life Sciences, and its translation into appropriate policies and operational plans.
Your breadth and depth of knowledge across science and allied health puts you in a strong position to lead and develop the range of academic disciplines across the institute, identifying new opportunities internally, regionally, nationally and internationally, and strengthening research capability and capacity.
In addition, building on your existing strong professional connections, you will be a credible and well-respected representative for the University externally, supporting further enhancement of the University’s strategy and impact by maximising the opportunities this multidisciplinary environment offers in relation to curriculum development, digital innovations in learning and teaching, and research and knowledge exchange.
This requires a clear strategic thinker with strong influencing skills and an outstanding track record of developing academic provision and delivering change. A Professorial title will be offered if the successful candidate meets our criteria.
